High Road to China is a 1983 adventure film directed by Brian G. Hutton and starring Tom Selleck, Bess Armstrong, and Jack Weston. Set in the 1920s, the movie follows the story of O'Malley, a wealthy American pilot who is hired by a wealthy British heiress to fly into war-torn China to locate her missing father. Along the way, they encounter a series of challenges and obstacles in their quest to find the missing man.

The movie opens with wealthy heiress Eve Tozer (Bess Armstrong) being informed that her father, Bradley Tozer, has gone missing in China. She hires a pilot named Patrick O'Malley (Tom Selleck) to fly her to China to find her father. O'Malley initially declines the job, but eventually agrees to help her when she offers him a large sum of money.

As they fly over China, O'Malley's plane is shot down by Chinese warlord General Lao (Richard Loo) and they crash land in a remote area of the Chinese countryside. O'Malley and Eve are forced to make their way through the dangerous Chinese wilderness by foot, encountering a variety of obstacles and hazards along the way.

The pair eventually come across an old friend of O'Malley's, Struts (Jack Weston), who is living in China and running a small business. Struts agrees to help them in their quest to find Eve's father, and the group continues on their journey together.

Throughout their journey, O'Malley and Eve are pursued by General Lao and his army of soldiers, who are hell-bent on stopping them from finding Bradley Tozer. O'Malley and his companions must use their wits and resourcefulness to outsmart General Lao's forces and stay one step ahead of him at all times.

As they travel deeper into China, O'Malley and Eve begin to develop feelings for each other. However, their romance is complicated by the fact that Eve is engaged to be married to another man. Despite this, O'Malley and Eve continue to rely on each other as they navigate the dangerous terrain and face increasingly difficult challenges.

As they finally get closer to finding Bradley Tozer, O'Malley and his companions must fight their way past General Lao's heavily guarded fortress and rescue the missing man. Will they succeed in their mission, or will General Lao and his forces finally catch up with them?

High Road to China is a classic adventure movie that delivers thrilling action, romance, and drama in equal measure. Tom Selleck shines as the brave and resourceful pilot, while Bess Armstrong brings depth and complexity to her character as the wealthy heiress. The movie's exotic locations and stunning cinematography add to the sense of adventure and excitement, making it a must-see for fans of the genre.
