I thought maybe she was actually a man and only he saw her as a woman, being brainwashed, at first because she says she was one of the Chinese workmen who build the railroad, but her character isn't clearly explained. Can anyone explain what the heck her character was all about?

No, but doesn't anyone else find it troubling that a 39 year old Angela Lansbury was playing mom to a 37 year old Lawrence Harvey? :)

No more troubling than Jessie Royce Landis (10 months younger than Cary Grant according to IMDB) playing Cary Grant's mom in NORTH BY NORTHWEST

No, but I would have had a hard time with a 37 year old Lawrence Harvey dating a 39 year old Angela Landsbury (not as his mother you perverts). Angela aged up pretty fast in her 39 years. I shutter to think about it.
