The Synopsis for Across the Pacific (1942) 720p

Rick Leland makes no secret of the fact he has no loyalty to his home country after he is court-martialed, kicked out of the Army, and boards a Japanese ship for the Orient in late 1941. But has Leland really been booted out, or is there some other motive for his getting close to fellow passenger Doctor Lorenz? Any motive for getting close to attractive traveler Alberta Marlow would however seem pretty obvious.

Good WW2 spy movie with the three leads and director from The MalteseFalcon. The plot is about Humphrey Bogart getting tangled up withbaddie Sydney Greenstreet and love interest Mary Astor. Greenstreet's aJapanese sympathizer and is trying to recruit Bogie. Good luck withthat, Gutman. Bogart is excellent playing a character he was totally athome playing: wisecracking tough guy ladies' man. Greenstreet isvillainous as ever and perfect at it. Just as in Maltese Falcon, MaryAstor is playing a stunning beauty that makes heads turn. Just like inMaltese Falcon, she doesn't match the character description. PerhapsHuston had a bit of a crush. Otherwise I don't get her being cast inthese types of parts at a time when the likes of Ingrid Bergman andLana Turner were around. Still, despite that element of the castingbeing off, Astor does fine.

This movie has an interesting backstory. It was originally to be abouta Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor but when that actually happened inreal life, they changed it to Panama. They never changed the title,though, despite the movie taking place nowhere near the Pacific. ThenJohn Huston got called to serve before filming was complete so VincentSherman had to step in. Oddly, it seems Huston was the only one whoknew how the movie was supposed to end so Sherman had to make up thefinal fifteen minutes or so of the movie!

"Across the Pacific" is a fairly well done spy movie that takes place inthelast days before America's entry into World War II.Rick Leland (Humphrey Bogart) is cashiered from the U.S. Army for stealingfunds. The events that follow involve a love interest (Mary Astor) and anenemy agent (Sydney Greenstreet) and a trip on a passenger ship from NewYork to the Panama Canal. Humphrey Bogart as an American spy isconvincingin a role that might have been played by Sean Connery 20 years later.

The subplot of a Japanese plot to torpedo the Panama Canal and put it outofaction was a case of truth being stranger than fiction with the recentrevelation of Japanese submarines which carried planes designed to knockthecanal out, but which were never used. "Across the Pacific" has humor,action and romance and is one of Bogart's lesser known but very goodmovies.

Good Intentions, Perhaps, But It Didn't DeliverReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

Here's one Humphrey Bogart movie that didn't click, and this is after he became a big star. It's also a similar cast and director from the previous year's hit film, "The Maltese Falcon," but a good cast doesn't guarantee a good movie. The same hold true for director John Huston. Maybe these people were just doing their duties as patriotic Americans by starring in a World War II movie to boost the home front during the war. I applaud them, if that's the case. However, this is no award-winner. Bogart's character, "Rick Leland," was not a guy I could get involved with caring about and that helped make me lose interest in the film.

Myrna Loy didn't help, either. How anyone could call her "glamorous" is beyond me. Her face, with the exaggerated eye shadow makeup, was disgusting in this film. After awhile, I couldn't look at her.

Having it set in the wrong ocean didn't help, either. I mean, come on - you only have two big oceans on either side of the U.S. and you get the wrong one in the story? What were they thinking? The setting takes place in the Atlantic, not the Pacific.Maybe, like today, Hollywood thought the whole world revolved around its neck of the woods.

There are too many hokey things in here, like people getting knocked off a second before they are going to divulge information. That happened more than once. In fact, how often has that ploy been used over the years?

Outside of the patriotic effort, which should be made more these days, the only positive of this film was the nice black-and-white photography.
