(1952) dir Josef von Sternberg w/Robert Mitchum, Jane Russell, William Bendix, Thomas Gomez, Gloria Grahame [81 min; 35mm]
Another caper-noir filled with sultry locations and even sultrier characters, MACAO stars Mitchum as a cynical ex-pat who gets into hot water when he is mistaken for an undercover agent by an underworld boss.

“What is so enjoyable, apart from Harry Wild’s shimmering camerawork, is the tongue-in-cheek tone of the script and performances, best evidenced in the sparkling banter and innuendo between Mitchum and Russell.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out
