Directed byRobert Wise

Year: 1966

Plot: Steve McQueen finds himself assigned to a gunboat on Yangtze River just as things get edgy. When the Chinese revolution erupts, the crew is ordered to evacuate the remaining gringos, but things go very, very wrong.

Pros: Surprisingly fresh, considering the vintage, and insightful portrayal of white racism.

Cons: Candice Bergen must have been told she was playing Bambi.
