Kim Spalding and Kermit Whitfield were announced as being in this movie in the film trade press but apparently their short scene together was cut before the film was released. They had portrayed US Navy officers who encourage Harry and Agnes Newton Keith to desert Sandakan. Apparently though, Whitfield still appears in the film uncredited as Commander Pritchard. See more »

Claudette Colbert is the star of this film, and she shows why!
The story is good and has you wondering how it will end. Colbert suffers through taking care of her son and coming to terms with POW life. Sessue Hayakawa gives a great performance as Colonel Suga who suffers through problems of his own. The movie is done in old Hollywood dramatic style. Not being a big fan of older films, I still enjoyed this movie and recommend it to fans of any era. 6/10
