China Gate

Sam Fuller's prophetic vision of Vietnam (1957)—the saga of Lucky Legs, a Eurasian prostitute (“I'm a little of everything and a lot of nothing”) with loyalties divided among the French, the communists, and the American soldier who happens to be the father of her child. Fuller's Indochina is a hopeless mishmash of cultures and ideologies; the challenge is to create a personal identity out of a political one. A rough, gnawing film, directed with Fuller's unique anger and bluntness. Angie Dickinson plays Lucky Legs; Gene Barry is the soldier; and Nat “King” Cole plays another soldier and sings the title tune. Made in black-and-white 'Scope.
