High Road to China (DVD, 2012)

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Patrick O'Malley (Tom Selleck), is a drunk who also gives flying lessons. He was a highly decorated Ace pilot in WWI. His mechanic and side-kick, "Struts" (Jack Waston), does what he can to keep him sober and out of trouble. As usual, he is broke.

Eve Tozer (Bess Armstrong) is a society girl, party girl, and all around spoiled brat. Her father, Bradley Tozer (Wilford Brimley), and his good for nothing, crooked partner, Bentik (Robert Morley), started a company years ago, and they made a fortune. Bradley Tozer is one of those men always chasing the next adventure, and hasn't been seen for years, and Bentik is trying to have him declared dead. If he is so declared, Bentik, as the surviving partner will inherit everything, and Eve will be out in the cold and broke! Eve wants to hire O'Malley and his two airplanes to go and find him so that he can show up in any British court and prove he is still alive. Eve is a pretty good pilot too, but O'Malley says "NO", until she offers him more money than he can imagine.

From Istanbul they are off the next morning. It is 1922. O'Malley and Struts in one plane and Eve in the other, through six countries leading them to finally find the eccentric Bradley Tozer in China, where he is helping a small village defend against a local warlord. O'Malley and Eve help them to win the final battle, however their one remaining plane is damaged in the process, leaving their immediate future actions uncertain.

As it turns out, all of the patents and formulas were in his name, and had been signed over to Eve years ago, and what was left, was worthless.

Superb movie w great adventure twists every few scenes. Worth Repeat viewin

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I must qualify that our family has never watched a film that T. Selleck starred in and not enjoyed it.. This one is just a cut above the rest he has done. They kept the language clean. it has just enough romantic spark to keep you wondering. "SPEAK" will come to have new meaning for you after watching this well done clip. I also have to admit I am a flying buff and anything with rag wings and radial's makes me drool but that isn't the primary reason we enjoyed the film. Enough action to keep it interesting as they jump from the frying pan into the fire evading their those that after them.
The scenery makes a fabulous backdrop for the whole unfolding plot with roaring 20's style music where apropo. Tom is the hardluck / washed up pilot who can fly anything anwhere if money is to be made. Bess is the gal who needs to find a family member in the worse way before someone steals their company.

A good quality film for all to view and own !

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I first ran across this movie in VHS form, and purchased it; couldn't wait fot it to be released in DVD form. It is one of the best movies to be produced in recent decades; fit for all members of the family to watch. In it, violence is kept to a minimum; devoid of gaudy sex; and has good dialogue and plot. The acting is excellent; the actors are of unquestioned talent; and, the filming and directing are superbe. To not view it would be a crime against a quality production. I have purchased several DVD's of this film to use as Christmas and birthday gifts because it is that good and entertaining.
