Hong Kong is a 1952 adventure drama directed by Lewis R. Foster. The story follows American war surplus salesman and former serviceman, Jeff Williams (Ronald Reagan), who is trying to get out of China before the communists take over. During his escape, Jeff comes across a boat carrying a dead Chinese man and young orphan, Wei Lin (Danny Chang). Jeff reluctantly takes Wei with him as he steers the boat to safety. Anxious to rid himself of the young boy, Jeff goes to a refugee camp run by a Victoria Evans (Rhonda Fleming), an American school teacher. Jeff is ready to leave Wei behind when Victoria tells him she has hired a plane to take the orphans to Hong Kong. Seeing an opportunity to escape, Jeff decides to go with them to Hong Kong. During the flight, Victoria and Jeff find out that Wei is carrying a gold figurine. When they arrive in Hong Kong, Jeff's greed gets the better of him and he arranges to sell the figurine to Tao Liang (Marvin Miller), a local fence. Before the transaction is complete, however, Jeff begins to suffer pangs of guilt. His world becomes infinitely more complicated as he tries to balance what he wants with what is right. Fans of Ronald Reagan films and 1950s moral dramas will enjoy this fast-paced adventure.moreless
