| Stunning Susan Peters performance
Susan Peters steals this film and demonstrates her superior acting ability in an entrancing performance. Her abilities at hard drama at the young age of 21 showed tremendous promise. Unfortunately it became necessary for this brilliant young woman to become an example of human courage and fortitude in her personal life during its short remaining course. Susan Peters can serve as an example of fortitude and endurance for all of us.

A very good actor Van Johnson is also superior in this intelligent film. Dedicated, hard working actor Stephen McNally gives a solid performance. And Keye Luke proves once again how he went on to become an American acting institution in a role seemingly custom-written for him, highlighted by a stirring short soliloquy concerning the tormented condition of China that you can tell Mr. Luke sincerely believed.

A well written and distinguished film, well acted. You rarely find a film of this integrity and so populated by immense talent before and behind the camera.
