4.0 out of 5 stars A MITCHUM AND RUSSELL BLOCKBUSTER! Dec 8 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This film is a potpourri of oriental and expatriate American film noir. It's two major stars (Jane Russell and Robert Mitchum) fit like gloves into their roles. Their attraction to each other melts through the screen. There are also outstanding character role performances (and these are the film's other great strengths) by Brad Dexter (nightclub owner, gem smuggler, etc.) Thomas Gomez, Gloria Grahame, and a special mention of William Bendix, who really added a tight performance to the film.
The plot is one of mistaken identities, a worn-out songstress looking for a place to land and rest, a man who can't go home, and a NYC policeman on a job. The center scene of the film is a Macao nightclub run by a shady and dangerous character. Mitchum and Russell captivate this plot with their on-screen presences.
Josef von Sternberg directed this film, but his stern movie set policies offended all, and especially Mitchum who did something about it (in the video, Jane Russell, still dazzling in old-age with shining silver hair) tells us this amusing anecdote. Nicholas Ray finished up the directorial tasks when von Sternberg was booted out, and their two talents form an interesting combination.
Mitchem and Russell had a preceding hit film called "His Kind of Woman." They probably would have been teamed again after "Macao," but Howard Hughes sold the RKO studio.
All in all, Macao belongs in anyone's collection of classic film noir.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightfully Cool Trip to Macao July 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of Mitchum's coolest films. It is not a dark noir film like "Out of the Past" but has an atmosphere all it's own. This is pure entertainment with a breezy feel all the way through, much the same as "The Big Steal" with Jane Greer, which is sadly unavailable now. Mitchum ends up in Macao and is mistaken for William Bendix, a cop looking to extradite casino owner Brad Dexter. Gloris Grahame plays the beautiful and abused ingenue tangled up with Dexter and would steal this film were it not for the wonderful chemistry between Mitchum and Jane Russell.
They obviously liked each other and had a lot of fun making this film. Mitchum always had nice things to say about Russell whenever asked about the actresses he had worked with. Both of them had their difficulties with the little dictator and director Joseph von Sternberg and it is probably in spite of his involvement with this film rather than because of it this movie turns out so utterly entertaining.
This film has a glossy sheen and an airy feel, Hollywood escapism at it's very best. The entertaining crime angle, as the easy going Mitchum is mistaken for Bendix, is played out in the exotic locale of Macao, and the burgeoning romance between Mitchum and Russell gives this film just the right flavor. A movie that is great fun to watch. You'll enjoy it a little more every time you watch it. Don't miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie for Mitchum fans Jan. 25 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"Macao" is a fantastic picture for any fan of Robert Mitchum. Mitchum steals the show as an ex-G.I. bouncing around the globe after getting in trouble in New York over a girl. By stopping in Macao he gets involved with Jane Russell and big time local casino operator Brad Dexter. Mitchum is thought to be a New York detective trying to return Dexter to the states. William Bendix is actually the detective and his cover is as a traveling salesman. Bendix eventually contracts the aid of Mitchum and, with the help of Russell, he captures Dexter after Bendix is killed by Dexter's henchmen. I've watched this picture about 50 times over the last 10 years and enjoy it each viewing. A MUST for fans of the ever entertaining Robert Mitchum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made For Each Other Aug. 7 2003
Format:VHS Tape
MACAO is a fairly entertaining story of crime and adventure in the Portuguese colony near Hong Kong after World War II. Jane Russell is a singer working for a local gambling boss (Brad Dexter). Robert Mitchum is an American who is on the run and William Bendix is pretending to be a salesman but he really has another more mysterious identity. The best thing about MACAO is the pairing of Russell and Mitchum who seem to be made for each other.
Josef von Sternberg also directed THE BLUE ANGEL.
