Walk Like a Dragon is an exceptional Western, written and directed by James Clavell. The year is 1870, and the California gold rush is in full swing. To deal with the scarcity of women in the mining towns, the Chinese have begun selling their countrywomen as slaves. Returning to his town, cowboy Lincoln "Linc" Bartlett (Jack Lord), accompanied by his Chinese assistant Cheng Lu (James Shigeta), is revolted to see a slave auction in progress. With still-fresh memories of the Civil War in his mind, he purchases a young Chinese girl, Kim Sung (Nobu McCarthy), with the sole intent of freeing her from a future of prostitution and domestic servitude. However, this plan backfires when the girl, who speaks no English, shows her gratitude by treating Bartlett as her master. Taken with Sung, Lu offers to purchase her from Bartlett, an offer which is quickly refused, as Bartlett only wants her to go her own way. Bartlett soon finds himself in a quandary, however; if he releases her, someone else will simply take advantage of her, and if he takes her in, she is determined to act as the servant he never wanted her to be. As Linc wrestles with his quandary, he finds that his feelings for Sung are beginning to grow. Lu also has designs on her, setting the stage for an unlikely showdown.moreless
