Goofs

When the murdered Margret (Maria Perschy) is discovered lying on bed in her Hotel room with her neck having been broken, we watch Commander Sanders (Rupert Davies) and Bob Mitchell (Bob Cummings) - after having examined Margret's corpse - in the foreground discussing their further proceedings to solve the crimes that have been committed so far in the movie. In the Background we observe the dead Body of Margret blinking with both her eyelids several times! A dead Person surely can't do that. See more »

Not Dragons, just dragging
9 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm sure that Bob Cummings and the guest stars who played the Golden Dragons must have looked forward to a nice trip to Hong Kong as the main reason for signing on for this film. In the case of George Raft his troubles with the IRS are well documented. It's as good a reason as any to appear in this dragging film.

Five Men who are the Golden Dragons are operators apparently on both sides of the law and unknown to each other they meet in Hong Kong to dissolve a successful partnership and split their accumulated loot. They wear these silly dragon masks and have a key that opens a lock for admission. If they're not a dragon, they got shot with a turn of said lock.

Four of them make it, Dan Duryea, George Raft, Christopher Lee, and Brian Donlevy. The fifth doesn't show up, he's been eliminated. They can't start without him.

In the meantime kind of like Cary Grant was sucked into some espionage plot in an infinitely better film, North By Northwest, Bob Cummings gets involved in this whole business. He's an aging playboy in Hong Kong for some fun and frolic. Of course he's not what he seems.

Cummings tried to make light of the whole business. Everyone else mouthed the dialog with all the satisfaction of players whose salary checks have cleared.

All of you I'm sure have better memories of all the name players in the cast. Keep them.
