World for Ransom (1954) Robert Aldrich, Dan Duryea, Gene Lockhart, Patric Knowles, Drama, Film-Noir

World for Ransom
Made by the same production set-up on the same lot that was producing the 1953-54 “China Smith/Captain China” TV series that starred Dan Duryea as soldier-of-fortune China Smith, using many of the same players that were regulars on the TV series, including Douglass Dumbrille, as head of the British Intelligence, and the same “Singapore”, British Colony colonials and China sets used on the series. In this instance, they had the good grace to actually make a “new” film rather than just paste two of the TV episodes together and sending it out as a “new” movie as many of the TV production companies were doing at the time, i.e., the producers of the “Ramar of the Jungle” and Guy Madison’s “Wild Bill Hickok” series. And changed the role names of Duryea and Dumbrille, but the Duryea character is still “China Smith.”
