Item description for Satan Never Sleeps by Leo McCarey, William Holden & Clifton Webb...

The last film by Leo McCarey (AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER) picks up on earlier religious themes in the director's work. It follows Father O'Banion (William Holden, THE WILD BUNCH) to a mission in 1949 China, where he is to take over the position of the elderly Father Bovard (Clifton Webb, CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, TITANIC), who is retiring. Along the way, a young girl named Siu Lan (France Nuyen, THE JOY LUCK CLUB) attaches herself to him; he takes her in, but is discomfited by her flirtatious advances. Upon arrival, she takes a position as cook at the mission, but before Bovard can abandon his post, Mao's Communist takeover begins. Chung Ren (Robbie Lee), following Mao's orders, leads a group of soldiers in taking over the mission, where he rapes Sui Lan, and she becomes pregnant. But when her son is born, the brutal soldier shows signs of a change of heart.

Community Description
Father O'Banion (William Holden) is in China on a mission of goodwill; he's slated to replace the priest (Clifton Webb) already stationed there and take over the church he helped establish. But his first few days quickly turn from a welcome to a nightmare, when Communists, led by a conflicted soldier, invade the sanctuary and reclaim it for their own use. Can Father O'Banion fend off the enemy's advances and bring his flock to safety?

Reviews - What do customers think about Satan Never Sleeps?

An exercise in temptation and sexual frustration.  Jun 22, 2005
Poor William Holden! He never got to make a romantic movie with the beautiful France Nuyen! He almost made "The World of Susie Wong" with her, but she got pulled and the equally gorgeous Nancy Kwan was substituted. Here in "Satan Never Sleeps", France is totally in love with William Holden, but unfortunately for her (and him) he is a Catholic Priest. Williams character goes through some big struggles with temptation but never gives up his vows. Just when he seems to be at the breaking point, an event happens that changes the life of France's character and their relationship. Not a romantically satisfying movie at all. But, I like both Holden's and France's performances so it was worth seeing. You will see more great footage of France Nuyen in this film than any other. She is at her beauty prime!
