Product Description:

Orson Welles stars as Cecil Hart, captain of the eponymous ferry to Hong Kong. Things run smoothly for Captain Hart until drunken passenger Mark Conrad (Curt Jurgens) becomes a nuisance. An Austrian exile with no passport, Conrad cannot legally enter Macao nor Hong Kong and is stranded aboard the ferry. The two characters must put aside their differences when a malicious group of pirates board the ferry and threaten the lives of its passengers.

FERRY TO HONG KONG is cinematically strong for its genre, placing the film in the company of such classic sea thrillers as LIFEBOAT and THE AFRICAN QUEEN. Director Lewis Gilbert applies his previous experience directing Royal Air Force war documentaries to the film and presents viewers with an number of technically advanced overhead shots. In addition to his technical work, Gilbert captures hilarious performances from his two stars. The interaction between Welles's prim and proper captain and Jurgens's Austrian greaseball is on par with the comic interplay of Laurel and Hardy and makes FERRY TO HONG KONG an unforgettable film.

Plot Synopsis:

In FERRY TO HONG KONG, Curt Jurgens & Orson Welles play the roles of two drunks at odds on a ferryboat. Boat owner Welles tries persistently to rid himself of J├╝rgens until the Austrian unexpectedly proves himself to be an invaluable ally.


Production Notes:

  • FERRY TO HONG KONG is based on the novel by Max Catto.
  • Star Curt Jurgens would later reunite with director Lewis Gilbert to play villian Carl Stromberg in the James Bond film, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME.
