Satan Never Sleeps 01/19/19
Pearl S. Buck and Leo McCarey give it to ya straight: Red China is BAD. This strange mix of Cold War truth-telling and mawkish, ethics-challenged church sentiment may have meant well, but it overstates everything. A top-flight cast works hard to make it compelling: William Holden, France Nuyen and in his last film, Clifton Webb. Wales stands in for Southwest China, with shaky traveling mattes doing the hard work. Also with Martin Benson and Athene Seyler. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
