Across the Pacific (1942)

This was a decent movie, kinda of a Maltese Falcon on the high seas!  From Amazon:  When disgraced American military officer Rick Leland (Humphrey Bogart) boards a Japanese ship, he is apparently willing to turn his back on his country to become a mercenary. On the vessel, Leland meets a mysterious professor named Dr. Lorenz (Sydney Greenstreet) and the beautiful Alberta Marlow (Mary Astor). Soon Lorenz shows an interest in Leland and recruits him for a dangerous mission. As Lorenz pulls Leland into a web of international espionage, the true motives of each man remain unclear.
REVIEWS: Bosley Crowther has a great review in the September 5, 1942 edition of the New York Times. I love the classic reviews of classic movies!
