It is sad to see Richard Quine, once a fair hope for 'mad' comedy, but growing progressively more sentimental and soft, slithering into a fifth-rate weepie like The World of Suzie Wang. Full Review

On the decidedly negative side are three passages in which realism is virtually abandoned for theatrical effect. Full Review

Denied the chance of being honest about its subject, it soon degenerates into euphemistic soap opera, with vague gestures towards bohemianism and lukewarm titillation. Full Review

The World of Suzie Wong, despite its familiar story and seductive packaging, never quite escapes the glaring contradiction between its professed egalitarianism and the obvious inequalities it so blithely reproduces. Full Review

Product Description:

This romantic drama deals with the love and interracial relationship between a struggling American artist (William Holden) and a beautiful Chinese prostitute (Nancy Kwan). Filmed on location in Hong Kong, this melodrama has become noted for its treatment of Asian stereotypes and interracial relationships, and provides a compelling story about the resolve of true emotion and love.

Plot Synopsis:

An American painter living in Hong Kong gets caught up in the affairs of a local woman named Suzie Wong -- not realizing that she works as a prostitute. Suzie lies to him about her past and her present, desperately attempts to overcome his reluctance to sleep with her, and competes with the upper-class daughter of an American daughter for his affections.
Despite all the deception, an unlikely romance eventually develops between the two. He suspects, however, that he does not know the entire truth about her. Ultimately, he does discover her secret -- but not before tragedy changes their lives forever.


Production Notes:

  • The film, "The World of Suzie Wong," is based on the stage play, which was adapted by Paul Osborn from the Richard Mason source novel.
