Macao pairs Jane Russell and Robert Mitchum; contains the cliche elements of adventure, romance and intrigue; and is set in the mysterious Orient.

Story [by Bob Williams] is set in the Portuguese colony south of Hong Kong. It opens with the arrival of three Americans # Russell, a cynical, wise-cracking chirper; Mitchum, an ex-GI running away from a minor shooting scrape; and William Bendix, disguised as a salesman but in reality a New York detective entrusted with the job of bringing back to the States Brad Dexter, local gambling kingpin.

Dexter engages Russell to sing at his club and makes a play for her, to the displeasure of his girl friend (Gloria Grahame). Believing Mitchum to be the New York cop, Dexter fails in an attempt to bribe him to leave the island and resorts to more drastic means.
