It's hard to believe that just 4 years after this ridiculous film, Johnson and Taylor costarred in the memorable "The Last Time I Saw Paris." That was a picture.
The problem with this film is that the sub-plot would have made the ideal plot. A Chinese doctor is refused admission into his apartment due to racism and bigotry. This would have made for a fascinating problem especially in an era when the movies was searching for relevant social problems of the period.
Instead, we are given an inane film where every time Johnson even sips a drink, he goes absolutely bonkers. Come to think of it, this is insulting to people who have drinking problems.
Taylor talks in a voice that was appropriate for "National Velvet" but certainly not 6 years later when she was older.
Any decent acting here is done by veteran pro Leon Ames, as a city official. His one scene stealer towards the end is memorable.
