I remember watching this movie years ago on TV one night and absolutely being mesmerized by the lovely Nancy Kwan..When I noticed it was available on DVD I rented it one evening and was again totally captivated by Nancy..Back in the sixties, Nancy Kwan was the biggest Asian star around! She made her debut in this lavishly filmed production and what a debut! She exudes an incredible amount of sex appeal yet there is an innocence about her that is very charming in this film! I've read that this film was criticized for negative portrayals of asians....but if you just look within the context of the story, I think it's a powerful love story..which is what it was meant to be! The locales are fantastic..William Holden is wonderful and the supporting cast is full of colorful characters!
