Red Dragon (German: Das Geheimnis der drei Dschunken, lit. 'The Secret of the Three Junks', Italian: A-009 missione Hong Kong) is a 1965 West German-Italian spy film directed by Ernst Hofbauer and starring Stewart Granger, Rosanna Schiaffino and Margit Saad.[2] It was released in Germany as Das Geheimnis der drei Dschunken and A 009 missione Hong Kong in Italy. It was released in the United States as a double feature with Lightning Bolt by Woolner Brothers in 1967 under the title Code Name Alpha.[3]

The film's sets were designed by the art director Max Mellin. It was shot on location in Hong Kong.

The film is a remake of the French spy film The River of Three Junks (1957).


In a Hong Kong park, a man brushes against the arm of a girl sitting on a bench, and she slips to the ground, murdered. Immediately afterward, the man is killed also. It turns out the woman was connected with a jewel-smuggling ring, and the man was a federal agent. FBI agent Michael Scott is given the assignment and finds a way to sneak agent Carol into the smuggling gang. Carol goes to work for Pierre Milot, who works for the smugglers.
