Synopsis:
This is the carefully crafted story of a young girls slide into decadence in old Shanghai, China. Gene Tierney stars as Poppy a girl doomed by her love of life and laughter. The background and setting of this film successfully evokes a bygone East with its colonial traces. Walter Houston ably plays a worldly Sir Guy Charteris with Victor Mature as Dr. Omar and a fine supporting cast that includes Maria Ouspenskaya and Mike Mazurki. This is the Hollywood dream factory at it's very best in this underrated masterpiece that takes the viewer into the mysteries of the orient, with it's character, it's charms, and dangerous vices.
