Shadows Over Shanghai
James Dunn stars in Shadows Over Shanghai. He is hotshot newspaperman Johnny McGinty, on assignment in war-torn China.
McGinty is one of several interested parties involved in a stolen Chinese amulet, which allegedly provides clues to the location of a treasure buried somewhere in America.
Also searching high and low for the amulet and the treasure are refugee Russian schoolteacher Irene Roma (Linda Gray) and shady munitions dealer Howard Barclay (Ralph Morgan).
To add a bit of versimilitude to the proceedings, newsreel footage of the Sino-Japanese war (from both sides) is inserted into the action.
Production values aside, Shadows Over Shanghai is exciting nonsense.
