Movie Info

When American artist Robert Lomax (William Holden) first meets beautiful Chinese native Suzie Wong (Nancy Kwan) aboard a ferry, she claims to be the virginal daughter of a prominent man. But when Robert spots her again in a Hong Kong brothel, she admits she is actually a prostitute. As Suzie models for Robert's paintings, their friendship deepens into love, to the disapproval of Robert's crusty British friend O'Neill (Laurence Naismith) and his daughter, Kay (Sylvia Syms), who fancies Robert.

  • On the decidedly negative side are three passages in which realism is virtually abandoned for theatrical effect.

  • Denied the chance of being honest about its subject, it soon degenerates into euphemistic soap opera, with vague gestures towards bohemianism and lukewarm titillation.

  • [A] wildly romantic, vividly imagined color film.

    May 21, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It is sad to see Richard Quine, once a fair hope for 'mad' comedy, but growing progressively more sentimental and soft, slithering into a fifth-rate weepie like The World of Suzie Wang.

    July 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The World of Suzie Wong is rife with problems.

    April 17, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Though stereotypical, this interracial romantic melodrama was one of William Holden's most popular films
