This is one of John Wayne's non-westerns, and Lauren Bacall in different role to what we are accustomed to. [i]Blood Alley[/i] never reaches anything approaching greatness, but if you're a fan of Wayne or Bacall you may as well check it out. Right-wing Wayne plays Captain Wilder in this decidedly right-wing film. It seems to be an excuse for film-makers to express their anti-communist sentiments, with Chinese being portrayed as backwards race in quite a few scenes. Add to that the countless American actors playing Chinese characters, and you have pretentious product overall. Anita Ekberg plays Chinese, evoking more than few giggles from this viewer. The Wayne-Bacall teaming never entirely pays off, despite their best efforts.

John Wayne at his funniest, always talking to Baby, but also at one of his best as an actor. Loved this.

Funny and entertaining. Though they did smuggle in a couple of people to pretend to be Chinese, the rest of the people seemed to be of the right nationality lol. It's so distracting when they do that! The Duke was as charming as ever in this adventure. For those who don't know, it's about an entire chinese village escaping to Hong Kong with the help of John Wayne, who ends up captaining the boat they flee in.
