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 »

Haunting Love Story-Unforgettable
20 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie only once more than 30 years ago, when I was very young-about 16 or so in NY. I have never forgotten the plot, and whenever I would ask someone about it, no one was able to tell me about it until today. The impact this move made on me was lasting.

I loved the characters and always felt that it was one of the most under-rated love stories ever written. It's a great movie for watching on a cold winter night with your loved one by your side.
