Directed by Robert Aldrich (uncredited), stars Dan Duryea, Gene Lockhart, Patric Knowles, Reginald Denny, Nigel Bruce, Marian Carr, and Keye Luke. Sort of an espionage Noir set in Singapore

(IMDb) Storyline
Made by the same production set-up on the same lot that was producing the 1953-54 "China Smith/Captain China" TV series that starred Dan Duryea as soldier-of-fortune China Smith, using many of the same players that were regulars on the TV series, including Douglass Dumbrille, as head of the British Intelligence, and the same "Singapore", British Colony colonials and China sets used on the series. In this instance, they had the good grace to actually make a "new" film rather than just paste two of the TV episodes together and sending it out as a "new" movie as many of the TV production companies were doing at the time.

Duryea is looking for buddy who is involved with a kidnapping of a nuclear scientist, his buddy also happened to marry the woman he loved.

Its adequate but obviously all shot in a studio, nothing to actively seek out unless you are a Duryea fan, entertaining enough 6/10
