Shanghai is a 1935 film directed by James Flood, produced by Walter Wanger, distributed by Paramount Pictures, and starring Loretta Young and Charles Boyer. The picture's supporting cast features Warner Oland, Alison Skipworth, Charley Grapewin, Olive Tell and Keye Luke, and the running time is 75 minutes.
Here's a rare Charles Boyer film I recently discovered on YouTube (through my smart TV), and I really love it. The story is about the relationship between Barbara Howard an American society girl and Dmitri Koslov a half-bred man with a secret of his parentage that is threatening.
I love those love stories where prejudice often gets in the way of romance. Why "prejudice"? Watch this film and you'll know why; I don't want to get out spoilers. You know, I thought Charles Boyer and Loretta Young's performances were spot on. So anyway, I thought this film is one of the best romance films ever made, and a rare treasure for Charles Boyer fans.
