Movie Info

Filmed in Hong Kong, the made-for-TV China Rose stars George C. Scott as an American businessman. Scott arrives in Canton, China, trying to find out what has happened to his rebellious son, who was swept up in China's "cultural revolution". Ali MacGraw plays a freewheeling guide who falls in love with Scott while helping him locate his son. Together, Scott and MacGraw uncover what was described in the original ads as a "shocking secret". The long-in-tooth stars are not ideally suited to their roles in China Rose, but that's only one of the many problems plaguing this murky melodrama.more

Audience Reviews for China Rose

Very poor flick. George C. Scott is completely miscast with the untalented Ali McGraw. Her scenes are painful to watch as she makes little attempt to show any emotional range whatsoever. She is unconvincing as an actress. The plotline for this movie seemed promising and that's why I decided to watch but my wife and I were laughing midway through at the superficiality. Did Scott do this completely for the money?
