They Met in Bombay ★★½ 1941

Two jewel thieves team up in this romantic action-comedy, complete with exotic locations and two big boxoffice stars. A Japanese invasion makes Russell reconsider her life of crime and gives Gable a chance to play hero. Look for Alan Ladd in a bit part in his pre-”This Gun for Hire” days. Based on a story by John Kafka. 86m/B VHS . Clark Gable, Rosalind Russell, Peter Lorre, Jessie Ralph, Reginald Owen, Eduardo Ciannelli, Alan Ladd; D: Clarence Brown; W: Anita Loos, Edwin Justus Mayer, Leon Gordon.
