Across the Pacific

John Huston reunites with his 'Maltese Falcon' cast in this lively espionage drama originally focused on a Japanese invasion of Hawaii until real life events at Pearl Harbour prompted a change in location to Panama - hence the title which remained unchanged. Bogie is Rick Leland, a disgraced ex-army man who jumps a Japanese steamer bound for Panama. Onboard are small-town girl Alberta (Mary Astor); Dr. Lorenz (Sydney Greenstreet), suspicious sociologist; and Joe Totsuiko (Victor Sen Yung), in a scene-stealing performance as a happy-go-lucky second generation Japanese-American on his way to visit the old country. But is anyone who they say they are?
