George Sanders in Shanghai
8 August 2014 | by marthawilcox1831See all my reviews

This film has a good premise which loses tempo as the story unfolds. It begins with a woman singing on board a ship, and then we dolly in to another woman who is enchanted by what she sees. The woman herself is not that significant, the production value in this scene is quite good. This is the scene that George Sanders is introduced and so our story begins. He is summoned to the room of a man named Labello who knows he only has $50 in his pocket and is susceptible to bribes. Labello offers him $200,000 to impersonate him in a munitions deal which Sanders accepts.

The scene between Sanders and John Carradine is quite strong. It has echoes of 'Manhunt' where Carradine also plays a strong character, but doesn't meet Sanders. It would have been good if Sanders and Carradine had a fight scene.
