Engineer Jake Holman arrives aboard the gunboat USS San Pablo, assigned to patrol a tributary of the Yangtze in the middle of exploited and revolution-torn 1926 China. His iconoclasm and cynical nature soon clash with the 'rice-bowl' system which runs the ship and the uneasy symbiosis between Chinese and foreigner on the river. Hostility towards the gunboat's presence reaches a climax when the boat must crash through a river-boom and rescue missionaries upriver at China Light Mission.The Sand Pebbles featuring Steve McQueen and Richard Attenborough is available for rent or purchase on Google Play, available for rent or purchase on Prime Video, available for rent or purchase on Microsoft Store, and 2 others.
