~Streets of Shanghai~
~S.S.-27: Kenneth Harlan & Pauline Starke~
~Plot Synopsis~
The scene is Shanghai, where virginal missionary Pauline Garon finds herself the object of lust of the
local Chinese crime lords. U.S. Marine Kenneth Harlan falls in love with Garon, while seductress
Margaret Livingston sets her sights on Harlan. Once he disentangles himself from the troublesome
Livingston, Harlan joins forces with his topkick pal Eddie Gribbon to rescue Garon from the heavies.
The semi-satirical tone of the film is forgotten during the climactic assault on the mission, where the
body count nearly exceeds anything toted up by Rambo. Director Louis J. Gasnier, normally one of
the least exciting of filmmakers, manages to invest more action than usual in Streets of Shanghai.
