Description by OLDIES.com:
In what may have been his most well-timed and well-crafted movie, William Nigh told the story of America's Chinese allies with sympathy and respect. With a cast assembled from PRC regulars like Anna May Wong (Bombs Over Burma), character actors like Harold Huber (from the Charlie Chan series) to bona fide stars like Mae Clarke (Frankenstein, Public Enemy), the characters were given a depth and dignity rarely matched in the poverty row era.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 623 ratings.
Anna May Wong does a good job of leading a band of Chinese guerrillas against the occupting Japanese in this film. It presents a very sympathetic view of the Chinese and, since the film was released in 1943, portrays the Japanese at their worst.
Captures the emotions from WWII, Anna Mae Wong is amazing and ties the story together well with a suprise ending.
