Professional Reviews

Crazy for Cinema 7 of 10
[Boom] Only big Tracy or Gable fans will find any enjoyment from this love triangle set amongst the big money world of oil refining...Unfortunately, like many films made today, the mixture of action and romance doesn't blend well. The love angle drags down the adventure slowing the picture to a crawl, yet it's also the only reason we care at all about what happens to these people. While all involved give subtle and moving performances, the plot is just not up to the level of their talent. This is certainly not the worst film any of the leads have made, yet it's not one to seek out either.

The Melancholy Eskimo Review 9 of 10
[Dancing] Within the first ten minutes, the movie has revealed its terrain (romantic comedy musical) and laid down the battle lines of its dramatic conflicts. Aristocracy vs. proletariat. Establishment vs. newcomer. Marriage vs. career. Censorship vs. freedom. Freedom vs. license. Wealth vs. hard times. Defeat vs. defiance and struggle and prevailing against the odds...Anyone who first encountered Joan Crawford in the later stages of her career - as the pathetic victim in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962), or, even earlier, as the sturdy pioneer in "Johnny Guitar" (1954), or the stolid matron in "Mildred Pierce" (1945), will be shocked to see what a volatile siren she was in the 30s in films like this and "Rain" (1932) and "Grand Hotel" (1932).

Ozus' World Movie Reviews 8 of 10
[China] 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. - Dennis Schwartz

DVDBeaver.com 8 of 10
[Mogambo] John Ford's 1953 remake of Red Dust lies far from his field of personal interest--in Africa, in fact--but it is a creditable sex and safari yarn. Ava Gardner more than holds her own against Jean Harlow's original performance, lending her dusky energy to a tritely conceived part: she's the international call girl who falls for the great white hunter (Clark Gable, far more interesting than he was in the first version). As the temptingly pure and fragile Englishwoman, Grace Kelly was closer to Ford's sympathy and understanding, but Gardner walks off with the movie and the man. Oddly, the studio scenes are more atmospheric than the location shots. - Gregory Meshman

Epinions.com 9 of 10
[Wife] I thought that the title opposition must be between Loy and Harlow, but it is also, more interestingly, a conflict of roles for Harlow (though a conflict she sees no necessity for). The domesticity forced on women after World War II was not compulsory before it (there was the Great Depression still on, though one would never guess from this or many other Hollywood movies about the upper crust and Harlow's supposedly working-class family seems pretty well off).

Stewart as well as Loy has to learn to trust his life-partner, the lesson of many, many Hollywood movies of the late-1930s and 40s in which adultery never occurs but is often mistakenly assumed of relationships and occurrences that were not the way they looked to suspicious observers. - Stephen Murray
