East Meets West . . . in Hong Kong
Vince Edwards is best remembered for his leading role in the 1961 hit television series Ben Casey. Born in Brooklyn and a star of the Ohio State national championship swimming team, his athletic future seemed assured until an appendectomy destroyed his athletic dreams. Vince Edwards turned to acting after college and appeared in small parts for Paramount Pictures and some independent movies like this one, filmed a couple of years before his 'overnight success' as Dr. Ben Casey.
In this oriental crime story Edwards is Stuart Allison, an American in Hong Kong who is involved in smuggling with his partner Puan. Six years earlier he met and married a blonde American named Marion, and two weeks after the wedding she disappeared without a trace. After years of searching for her he has all but given up and has a new oriental lady-love.
Today as Stu is selling his half of the smuggling business to his partner he glances out of the window and sees his wife boarding a ferry for Macao, and the chase is on again. We will discover that his blonde wife Marion was involved with Chinese General Wu, played by Richard Loo, who smuggled bonds worth three million U.S. several years ago, and now the bonds are missing and Stuart's wife is in the middle of it all.
Stuart tries to help his drug-addicted wife out of the mess, but Danger and Death are their only companions as the shadowy Chinese rebels are determined to get the stolen bonds first, even if they need to kill the couple. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
