Its an amazing cast and the film looks good, but is showing its age. Gary Cooper playing Marco Polo is a huge stretch, actually the whole cast is a stretch with its suppose to be set in Venice then China but not even an accent other then American or British in the bunch. The plot basically revolves around Cooper being irrestible to all women, and thats pretty much it. Alan Hale does give a good performance and so does Basil Rathbone, but the story just does not cut it, very little adventure really. Look for Lana Turner in a very small role, one of her first.

5.5/10. Unusually innacurate historically, even for an old Hollywood film. The acting is fine, Gary Cooper is always worth a look. Over dramatic score, silly at times.
