Storyline

Rick Leland makes no secret of the fact he has no loyalty to his home country after he is court-marshaled out of the army and boards a Japanese ship for the Orient in late 1941. But has Leland really been booted out, or is there some other motive for his getting close to fellow passenger Doctor Lorenz? Any motive for getting close to attractive traveller Alberta Marlow would however seem pretty obvious. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

Much of the action takes place upon a Japanese freighter named the "Genoa Maru". There was a real Japanese cargo ship by the same name which was torpedoed and sunk by the USS Finback on June 11, 1943. See more »

Goofs

It is true that Officers can be "Dismissed" but only enlisted men are "Dishonorably Discharged." This is true and Captain Leyland (Bogart) says conversationally that he was "...dishonorably dismissed," and never uses the other, defined term: "Dishonorably Discharged." There doesn't seem to be any factual error. See more »

Quotes

Alberta Marlow: Mr. Leland, I believe that a man should tell the woman he's going to marry everything.
Rick Leland: Oh, in that case, I'll come clean.
Alberta Marlow: What?
Rick Leland: I look old, but that's because I've worried a lot. Actually, I haven't yet reached the age of legal consent, and if you don't get out of here, I'm gonna yell for help.
Alberta Marlow: All right, you can get yourself another heiress.

Must say this is a fantastic film
5 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I have to disagree with the person who wrote that it shows the standard and expected stereotypes of a 1942 movie (set in war time).

I found that many touches in the movie - such as the explanation of Ju Jitsu, Japanese poetry, and generational differences, as well as subtle looks as different generations and political beliefs, gave quite a fresh world view.

Though I must say everyone should see all of them - I'm in the middle of a Bogart marathon and it's great to hear that he uses "Angel" and other terms of endearment in all his films. lol. It's an insight into him.

I adore this movie - indeed and Bogie - and good to see the crew again in something different - hadn't seen this one.
