The Adventures of Marco Polo with Gary Cooper. Venetian explorer Marco Polo (Gary Cooper) travels to China to secure a trade agreement with Kublai Khan. There he discovers spaghetti, gunpowder, and coal. He also woos the Emperor's daughter. Kublai Khan sends Polo to spy on the leader of a rebellious province. Kaidu, the leader of this province, catches Polo and forces him to distract his hectoring wife so that Kaidu can make whoopee with a servant girl.
Familiar faces: Basil Rathbone as Khan's evil advisor; Alan Hale as Kaidu the rebel; Binnie Barnes as Kaidu's wife, and Lana Turner as the amorous servant girl. Also, H.B. Warner (Mr. Gower from It's a Wonderful Life) plays the Chinese man who introduces Marco Polo to spaghetti and gunpowder.
