When the smuggling of Chinese men into the United States continues unabated, the Immigration Department calls on dashing inspector Bob Baxter (Regis Toomey) to burst the racket. Baxter’s deductive prowess soon has him on the gang’s trail. Posing as a pilot, Baxter tries to infiltrate the gang, which is badly in need of a pilot. With help from Viola (Esther Ralstien), the charming and rebellious daughter of Federal Judge Avery (Oscar Apfel) and his ageing partner Inspector Sullivan (J. Farrell Macdonald), it doesn’t take Baxter long to put an end to the inhuman trade of innocent Orientals.

Running Time: 69 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: Approved

"In this classic 1937 drama, now on DVD from A2ZCDS, director Burt P. Lynwood showcases the plight of the helpless Chinese laborers who were smuggled into the country as well as the ruthlessly ingenuous gangs that managed to make huge profits from the trade. Regis Toomey gives a wonderful portrayal of a resourceful young inspector who relies on modern deductive methods to solve cases. Enchanting Esther Ralstien is tailor-made for her role as a rebellious and fun loving young lady who is seldom out of trouble or the newspaper headlines. The inclusion of several Chinese names in the cast and the oriental atmosphere in the opening scenes make an effective setting for the plot. Extensive use of then-modern gadgetry like the telephone, wireless radio and aeroplanes combine with lively dialogues sprinkled generously with humor to hold the narrative together." Experience this extraordinary vintage drama noire, which is both entertaining and intriguing.


’Shadows of the Orient‘ made me think deeply about what we’re capable when making money becomes the sole objective... I applaud director Burt Lynwood for having the guts to make this beautiful classic film. And I thought I know everything there is to know about human depravity..."
Frederick Bolton (Concord, NEW HAMPSHIRE)

"Thought-provoking and inspiring precisely because it’s so real. ‘Shadows of the Orient’ draws clear-cut lines, and the issue of human trafficking is brilliantly underlined in red. I affirm this wonderful old movie as a true and courageous masterpiece of its time."
Ted Hellinsky , (Santa Ana, CALIFORNIA)
