Editors Note
Note A soggy blend of adventure, comedy and romance on the high seas, but what a cast! Gable pilots a steamer plying the China seas, where in one tumultuous journey he fights off pirates, foul weather and the advances of a blonde bundle of trouble known as China Doll.
Plot Summary
Summary Adventure, comedy and romance on the high seas. Alan Gaskell is an aristocratic ship captain piloting his vessel from Shanghai to Singapore. Jamesy MacArdle is the pernicious pirate getting in his way. But MacArdle is nothing compared to the blonde bundle of trouble known as China Doll. This sassy girl is anything but respectable but it doesn't stop her from making a play for Gaskell. She has to move his high-society girlfriend out of the way first, but China Doll is prepared to go to any length to get -- and get back at -- her man.

ReviewSource Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Review In China Seas, the fourth collaboration between Harlow and Gable, the Production Code that wasn't enforced when they made the similar themed steamy melodrama Red Dust is now enforced. As a result, Harlow is no longer a prostitute but a professional entertainer and none of the relationships are consummated. Tay Garnett efficiently directs this adventure/romance film based on the book China Seas by Crosbie Garstin. The witty screenplay, without a pretense to art, is by Jules Furthman and James K. McGuinness.
