Believe me - 1952's "Macao" (a cliched and predictably routine "boy-meets-girl" crime-drama set in China) was the sort of film where you'd swear that all of the main actors had, literally, phoned their performances in. It's true.

I found that this was especially so of Macao's 2 super-sexy leads, Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell. I mean - The truth is - These 2 hot lookers just weren't right for this picture, at all. No way, Jose.

As I understand it - Part of the answer to all of these "phone-in" performances came down the tyrannical rule on the set by director, Josef Von Sternberg. Apparently he and Mitchum were in constant conflict with one another throughout Macao's entire shooting.

*Note* - Be sure to watch the bonus extra on this disc of TCM host, Robert Osborne interviewing Mitchum in 1996. Mitchum was 78 at the time and you would never recognize him, ever. He died the following year.

Interesting 1952 film noire set in the former Portuguese colony in China. Robert Mitchum and William Bendix are excellent - and Jane Russell too and is fabulously beautiful (never really caught on to her before).
