At the height of the Chinese Civil War, American missionary Megan Davis (Barbara Stanwyck, Double Indemnity) arrives in Shanghai to marry another missionary, Robert Strike (Gavin Gordon, The Bride of Frankenstein). As soon as she arrives, however, the couple must save a group of orphans from a fire. Injured and separated from her fiance, Megan is rescued and taken to the home of General Yen (Nils Asther, Our Dancing Daughters). While Megan and the general grow closer, one of the general's concubines seems to be secretly working for Yen's enemies. Directed by the legendary Frank Capra (It's a Wonderful Life), THE BITTER TEA OF GENERAL YEN is a provocative romantic drama.
