Rod Taylor after a secret photograph, a lady and her secrets
7 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hong Kong: The Hunted" (1961) is an episode in the TV series starring Rod Taylor as a persistent reporter and Lloyd Bochner as a British colony cop. The cast in this story is very strong. John Abbott co-stars as a shady character who acts as an intermediary in underworld deals. He detests violence but that doesn't stop him from employing a masseur-thug who reminds one of Odd Job a little. Harry Landers, a photographer without a conscience, has taken a photograph that will show the innocence of Arlene Martel's father.

The directing and noir-inspired photography complement the cast. The story is not bad. The time limitation requires that an important part of the back story is off screen but conveyed to us verbally.

Taylor spars with Bochner, persuading him at two junctures to let him proceed with Martel without police interference. Taylor finds Martel to be quite resistant to his questions. Her position in the photograph affair is unclear.

Rod Taylor was 31 years old and in his prime. He looks great and carries the acting ball vigorously, with some sparks. The camera doesn't shrink from close-ups that show his face and blue eyes to advantage, even in black and white. Mr. Taylor died two years ago this date at the age of 85. He left behind a memorable body of work that ages well.
