New York Times best selling author Paul French reads a new four-part adaptation (for Morning Brew) of his 'Post Magazine' article; 'The Lady from Hong Kong – the best Hollywood movie of the 1940s never made'. It’s a tale of a woman who called herself Seto Gin, and arrived in San Francisco from Hong Kong in January 1939 with several dozen tins of opium hidden in her luggage. Her story, and why she took the risk to smuggle so much dope into America is the story of 'The Lady from Hong Kong'.
