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 »

Great Cast of Classic Actors!
2 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great 1940's Classic film with great actors like Merle Oberon (Joan Ames),"A Song to Remember",'45, who goes on a cruise ship and meets George Brent,(Don Hardesty), "The Spiral Staircase",'46, and the couple fall deeply in love. These two love birds each have secrets that they are keeping from each other and vow to meet in Mexico City. However, Pat O'Brien,(Police Lt. Steve Burke),"The Fighting 49th",'40 has his eyes on Don Hardesty in order to bring him to Justice!. There are great supporting actors, Frank McHugh,(Rockingham T. Rockingham),"Mighty Joe Young",'49, and George Reeves,(Jimmy Coburn),"Superman",'73 who unfortunately in real life took his own life. If you liked Pat O'Brien, George Brent and the beautiful Merle Oberon, you will not want to miss this film! Enjoy.
