This little known film represents fine work by everybody involved. Barbara Stanwyck and Nils Asther are absolutely mesmerizing. You would not know it is a Frank Capra film-- it has none of his familiar "life is good" feeling. Though, his fine direction shows. The street scenes in war-torn Shanghai will have you on edge. Stanwyck, the American do-gooder, barges in where brave men fear to go,and plays it beautifully. She learns many lessons along the way. All of the sets are impeccably done. The Missionery's house looks just right. Yen's palace is rich and beautiful. The train scenes are great. This has been tagged as Drama and War, but it is also a magnificent romance. It was my late husband's favorite film.
