Tyrone Powers stars in this glossy historical adventure as a Saxon nobleman who travels to China to make his fortune. Cast out of 13th century England after a failed rebellion against his Norman oppressors, Walter of Gurnie (Tyrone Power) first travels to North Africa where he encounters headstrong tribal leader Bayan (Orson Welles). As he journeys further afield, he eventually reaches China, where, at the insistence of his hosts, he remains, accumulating scientific knowledge. Finally fleeing his captors, Walter returns to his native land, where, his past sins forgotten, he is hailed as a hero.
