Ferry to Hong Kong

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

The first of Rank's clueless strikes at the international market is a moronic male melodrama-cum-adventure movie with Curd Jürgens as a shiftless Austrian drifter who's in his element when Orson Welles' ferry is threatened by a typhoon off Macao. All at sea away from his favoured British subject matter, Lewis Gilbert tries to navigate by the stars, but he's duly scuppered by his own rocky script. Filmed in CinemaScope.
