Walk Like a Dragon is a 1960 American Western film directed by James Clavell and written by James Clavell and Daniel Mainwaring. The film stars Jack Lord, Nobu McCarthy, James Shigeta, Mel Tormé, Josephine Hutchinson, Rodolfo Acosta and Benson Fong. The film was released on June 1, 1960, by Paramount Pictures.[1][2]

The film has a retroactive connection to Clavell's later Asian Saga novels; the 1981 novel Noble House features a character named Lincoln Bartlett who is said to be a descendant of the similarly named character played by Jack Lord in this movie.


Film's introduction:

California in the 1870's was rough and violent. Men were plentiful, but women were scarce. So girls were secretly and illegally imported from China, and sold as slaves. They were used, but scorned and isolated. This is a story of those times... It happened.
