| Busy And Well-Produced B
George Sanders is a soldier of fortune heading to Peiping to see what he can make out of the Sino-Japanese war. When the ship is about to dock, he's almost shot by Dolores Del Rio, makes a date with her, and is asked to see gun-runner Pedro de Cordoba, who offers him a deal: go meet some buyers for his wares, collect a million dollars, and bring it back to de Cordoba, who will pay him $10,000 and release the weapons. Sanders agrees, gets taken to a location outside the European zone, gets the money from John Carradine and Harold Huber. He starts on his way back, but gets lost. When he returns to the International Settlement, he finds de Cordoba dead.

That's when the story gets complicated.

It's a glossy Twentieth Century-Fox B movie with a busy script, a couple of subplots, Keye Luke as a doctor, Leon Ames as a bad guy, and glossy cinematography by Lucien Andriot. Director Eugene Forde foes his usual competent job of direction on the B lot, and the twists keep coming through the last minute. It's a very good example of why Sol Wurzel's unit was the best B studio in this period.
