Trivia

"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on June 10, 1940 with Merle Oberon and Pat O'Brien reprising their film roles. See more »

Goofs

When George Brent and Pat O'Brien fall into the Hong Kong harbor the ship is well under way and would not have been motionless next to them while they struggled in the water. Incorrect: Merle Oberon's character had not yet boarded the ship when this occurs. The ship appears to be under way because of other ships moving in the background. See more »

The day I became a movie lover
31 August 2003 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

There are moments in certain movies that, once experienced, turn you, forevermore, into a movie-lover.

As those two glasses broke, in a bar in Acapulco, the sound nearly masked by New Years' celebrations and the strains of "Auld Lang Syne", I let out a sob that I can still feel, well more than fifty years later.

Dated, trite, corny, awful sound, loud voices, yeah, all of those. But put it aside and revel in this beautiful, gentle, glamorous and romantic love story. Even with all the available cinematographic bells and whistles, it simply could not be made today.
