California, 1870s. The cowboy Lincoln 'Linc' Bartlett finds out there's a slave auction of Chinese women in San Francisco and he intervenes and purchases the Chinese Kim Sung from the auction with the intent of setting her free.

Linc takes Kim home to serve as a housekeeper. Ma Bartlett Linc's mother, is not happy that a Chinese girl is living in her home, and even less happy when Kim and her son fall in love.

Goofs

Nobu McCarthy's knee-length white dress might have looked stylish in 1960 when the film was made, but would have been totally inappropriate and unacceptable in the 1870's time frame in which the film is taking place. See more »

Great movie!
27 September 2003 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I am a great fan of Jack Lord, and on my quest to find all his movies, I came upon this one...Its a superbly done movie, with a great plot! Its strange to see Jack Lord in any other role than in Hawaii 5-0.... I just loved it! Well done, James Clavell!
