Film foreword: "Through the teeming heart of Asia, halfway between Rangood and Shanghai, twists the hand-hewn Burma Road, lifeline for the embattled Army of China, headquartered at Chungking. Over this dangerous seven hundred miles of highway roars a stream of truck---hell drivers at their wheels---trucks loaded with food, munitions, guns...blood and sinew of the defenders of the ancient soil of China. Fountain-head for these vital supplies, end of the rail line from the west is the sprawling Burmese BOOMTOWN OF LASHIO." Story mostly pertains to the trucking of munitions to the Chinese Army under British direction and with some Americans participating, but there is no dialogue references to Japan, and the parachute troops who attempt to sabotage the convoy are identified as Chinese insurrectionists. Two months after its October release, Universal could have called a spade a spade.Accuracy footnote:Despite revisionists sources that seem to think so,this was not distributed in 1941 by MCA/Universal, because MCA/Universal did not exist in 1941. Universal Pictures Company did, and they were the distributor.
