Anna May Wong began her career in silent films and quickly came to the attention of Douglas Fairbanks, who cast her in a prominent role in The Thief of Baghdad. To escape type-casting after a series of concubine and slave girl roles, she went to Europe, where parts in film and on stage were better for the Chinese-American actress. Wong returned to the U.S., and continued to create strong portraits for directors Erich Von Stroheim, Nicholas Ray and Ross Hunter. Before passing away in Santa Monica, California in 1961, she appeared in numerous television shows and dramas, and was the first Chinese-American to star in her own series, "The Gallery of Madame Liu-Tsong" (1951).
China. World War II. The bloody Burma Road must be kept open for Allied troop convoys at any cost by a brave but shorthanded crew. After a surprise attack, the group suspects a traitor is amongst them. The beautiful Lin Yang - who teaches school by day and spies for the Allies by night - is assigned to find out who is responsible for leaking costly information to the Japanese.
Driven by the horrifying memory of innocent villagers who were slaughtered by the enemy, Lin Yang travels the treacherous road with an unlikely group of strangers. Englishman Sir Roger Howe and American Slim Jenkins aide her in a desperate race against time to stop the devastating bombs over Burma.
With unflinching scenes of aerial assaults and battlefield brutality, writer-director Joseph H. Lewis creates a taut, suspenseful wartime adventure.
