Description by OLDIES.com:

Rugged Captain Alan Gaskell (Clark Gable) sails the perilous waters between Hong King and Singapore with a secret cargo: a fortune in British gold. That's not the only risky cargo he carries. Both his fiery mistress (Jean Harlow) and his refined fiancee (Rosalind Russell) are aboard! With their wisecracking banter, gutsy glamour and dynamic physicality, Gable and Harlow prove once again that they were the '30s' most scorching screen pair in this rough-and-tumble tale of the sea. Highlights include a raging typhoon, a battle with bloodthirsty malay pirates, and Harlow's drinking contest with bluff villain Wallace Beery, who wants the gold and the platinum blonde. Adventure (and Golden Era allure) dead ahead on China Seas.

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

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.
