Set during 1931 China civil war, a variety of types who are passengers on a train seem more concerned over the presence of notorious Shanghai Lily until they are invaded enroute and a doctor is taken hostage.
The perfect role for Marlene Dietrich and one of her iconic and mimicked characterizations. Anna May Wong gave her a run in the acting and glamour department and here they both are in a tense moment from the film.
