Description by OLDIES.com:

A Skipper to reckon with - John Wayne. "Powder your nose, Baby, we're coming into Hong Kong!" John Wayne, joined by fellow screen icon Lauren Bacall, braves dangerous waters and pursuing soldiers as he steers Chinese refugees to freedom's shore in Blood Alley. William A. Wellman (The Story of G.I. Joe) directs. Another femme movie legend - Lana Turner - teams with Wayne in the search-and-destroy adventure The Sea Chase, directed by John Farrow (The Big Clock). Wayne plays naval officer Karl Ehrlich, renegade commander of a German freighter trapped in perilous circumstances at the outbreak of World War II. Catch him if you can!

Product Description:

Two John Wayne movies combine on this collection.

BLOOD ALLEY: William Wellman's BLOOD ALLEY begins with the inhabitants of a local Chinese village liberating a political prisoner, Captain Tom Wilder (John Wayne). The oppressed villagers are disillusioned by communism's stranglehold and want the former merchant marine to sail their ship through the Formosa Straits--the infamously treacherous Blood Alley--to Hong Kong and freedom. Wilder agrees, and heads off down the Yangtze aboard an old steamer, with Cathy Granger (Lauren Bacall) along for the ride. The strong arm of the plot is taken from the novel by Aaron Sidney Fleischman. Widescreen CinemaScope provides effective shots of the panoramic scenery, and it is an absolute delight to watch Wayne and Bacall, so reminiscent of Bogie and Hepburn in THE AFRICAN QUEEN.

THE SEA CHASE: A renegade German freighter captain has both the British and German navies in hot pursuit when he embarks from Australia on a trip across the Pacific as WWII breaks out. To make matters worse, the globetrotting woman he takes on as a passenger has the crew in a lather.
