truly a 1960's Hollywood style romance
25 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film is better known as "A Night in Hong Kong". I saw this film shortly after its release in 1961 when I was in junior high. It is one of the most romantic films I have ever seen, starring two beautiful Asian actors, Japanese hunk Akira Takarada and Hong Kong ingénue Yu Min. The film does not seem to be available for current viewing however. The scenery and locales are filmed in gorgeous Technicolor. Although Hong Kong's economy then was not what it is today, this film provided its audience with easy listening pop music, designer clothes,perhaps an overly romanticized storyline, and a chance to escape. It is subtitled. It is suitable for all ages as by today's standards the relationship between the couple, a Japanese globe trotting reporter and a half-Chinese, half-Japanese woman he meets on assignment is treated in a very innocent manner. His kiss of her hand in one scene was truly one to swoon over. I highly recommend this film but it is exactly of its time and place, produced in the early 1960s when Hollywood stars of their generation included Connie Stevens and Troy Donohue.
