    Ford’s last film and one I had never seen before. Despite some clunky sets and one dimensional Chinese bandits this is a film well worth seeing. It is perhaps touching on themes explored in The Fugitive which also addressed the meaning of sacrifice and martyrdom. This film however exists in a world where God is absent and in that absence it is our solidarity that prevails.
    The last line of the film is simply terrific.
    Thanks and a deep bow of thanks to Jon for making this film available.
