"...charisma of its stars Gable, Harlow, and Beery with a fine supporting cast... Sanderson Beck, Movie Mirror
Editor's NoteA 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 SummaryAdventure, 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.
