SOLDIER OF FORTUNE (MP 1955) Clark Gable, Susan Hayward, Gene Barry, Michael Rennie, Alex D’Arcy, Tom Tully, Anna Sten, Russell Collins
Clark Gable and Susan Hayward star in this rousing adventure about a woman whose husband has been unjustly imprisoned behind the red curtain…and about the dashing-yet-dubious mercenary she hopes can bring him home.
Jane Hoyt (Hayward) becomes desperate when she learns that her photojournalist husband (Gene Barry) has been arrested and is enduring brutal torture by his captors in China. But when the US Consulate refuses to help, Jane turns to Hank Lee (Gable) – a smuggler and soldier of fortune who just might be the most dangerous man on the South Seas! Filmed on location in beautiful Hong Kong as well as on the soundstages of Twentieth Century Fox, Soldier of Fortune is adventure at its most harrowing!
Directed by Edward Dmytryk. Screenplay by Ernest K. Gann.
