The World of Suzie Wong


The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

When American artist Robert Lomax (William Holden) first meets beautiful Chinese native Suzie Wong (Nancy Kwan) aboard a ferry, she claims to be the virginal daughter of a prominent man. But when Robert spots her again in a Hong Kong brothel, she admits she is actually a prostitute. As Suzie models for Robert's paintings, their friendship deepens into love, to the disapproval of Robert's crusty British friend O'Neill (Laurence Naismith) and his daughter, Kay (Sylvia Syms), who fancies Robert.
