    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? [​IMG]
