Description by OLDIES.com:
China. World War II. The bloody Burma Road must be kept open for Allied troop convoys at any cost by a brave but shorthanded crew. After a surprise attack, the group suspects a traitor is amongst them. The beautiful Lin Yang - who teaches school by day and spies for the Allies by night - is assigned to find out who is responsible for leaking costly information to the Japanese.
Driven by the horrifying memory of innocent villagers who were slaughtered by the enemy, Lin Yang travels the treacherous road with an unlikely group of strangers. Englishman Sir Roger Howe and American Slim Jenkins aide her in a desperate race against time to stop the devastating bombs over Burma.
With unflinching scenes of aerial assaults and battlefield brutality, writer-director Joseph H. Lewis creates a taut, suspenseful wartime adventure.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 620 ratings.
Released in 1942, this film has enough action, suspense, intrigue, mystery and propoganda to make it well worth watching.
This was exactly what I wantede to reflect the era. Gave a good insight into the Japanese Chinese conflict before WWII and just before the AVG arrived.
Anna Mae Wong was excellent and I ordered another one
