The great director Leo McCarey’s final film, Satan Never Sleeps from 1962, stars William Holden (Sunset Boulevard) and Clifton Webb (Stars and Stripes Forever) as a pair of priests struggling to maintain a mission post during Mao’s 1949 Chinese Communist revolution. Complicating matters is the presence of a lovely young girl (France Nuyen) unfortunately in love with Holden’s Father O’Banion.

Adapted by Claude Binyon and McCarey from a story by Pearl S. Buck, the drama features music by Richard Rodney Bennett and cinematography by the great Oswald Morris (Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison).

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of the film contains an original theatrical trailer.
