A woman's search for her missing husband in communist China inspires a shipping magnate's interest. After a few swindles, Hank Lee decides to rescue Jane Hoyt's husband to win her heart. This early Cold War film is notable for its portrayal of rugged American masculinity abroad, with Clark Gable in the lead role.
