East meets West for some lush tripe based on a novel by Han Suyin, who had company in disliking it.

With an impotent screen play, it is no wonder that Mr. Holden and Miss Jones find themselves going around in narrowing circles, talking endlessly and holding hands.

The film is the quintessence of a certain kind of 50s schlock.

This is basically a sappy story that does not hold up and that is so obviously designed to jerk tears that it seems more self-parody than love story.

It's an unusual picture shot against authentic Hong Kong backgrounds and offbeat in its treatment, yet as simple and moving a love story as has come along in many a moon.

Holden and Jones are so good together that it's easy to forget they did not get along behind the scenes. ... Still, they punch across the sweeping passion of this visually dynamic CinemaScope production.

Well acted by William Holden and Jennifer Jones, this interracial romance is a schmaltzy but enjoyable melodrama, and one of the 1950s blockbusters.
