About the Movie
The director and stars of "Maltese Falcon" Oscar-winner Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, John Huston and nominee Sydney Greenstreet reunite in this adventure classic. Bogart, an American Army Officer, is booted out of service on false charges of treason. As he sails to China, because no other military will accept him, he comes into contact with a series of seedy characters. As a running battle of words continues with Sydney Greenstreet, a spy on the boat, Bogart keeps all eyes focused on the love of his life. With an all-star cast this is an enjoyable, high- spirited action-film.
Released in 1942...
...not in 2006, as shown.
Despite it's title, Across the Pacific takes place entirely in the Atlantic Ocean (the Pacific part was meant to describe the Japanese going across the Pacific). Regardless of the geography, this is a first rate Bogey pic full of twists, turns, some actual "stunts" towards the end and plenty of good old fashoned moviemaking. If you loved Casablanca, To Have and to Have Not or Treasure of Sierra Madre, you'll love Across the Pacific.
Across The Pacific
One of the very best!!! Bogart and Greenstreet team up again to make one of the most enjoyable thriller flicks around. It's a "must see" for Bogart and Greenstreet fans.
