‘Blood Alley’ Movie Summary
Locked inside a Communist Chinese prison, Merchant American Marine Tom Wilder talks to his imaginary friend, Baby, to keep his sanity. A friendly stranger offers him a random means of escape, and he takes Wilder, with the assistance of fellow American Cathy Grainger, to a small seaside village to lay low.
Communists detained her father who’s a doctor because they need Western medical experts. Tom learns the villagers chose him because, as a sea captain, he’s able to help the villagers escape to Hong Kong down the 300 mile Formosa Straight (aka Blood Alley) with only a rundown ferry boat.
Along the way, they encounter the Red Army and extreme weather conditions. Cathy leaves the boat to confirm news that her Father has died; much to her dismay. Tom rescues her during a gunship attack which begins at the same time they banish an elder with mutiny aspirations. They kill him as the surprise attack begins.
The group escapes the battleship onslaught; drifting into nearby reeds, and hiding out from impending doom. Tom guides the paddle boat into Hong Kong harbor; declaring he wants to be with Cathy, and he says goodbye to BABY once and for all.Read the full summary
