Synopsis in German
Kapitän Alan Gaskell hat einen schwierigen Auftrag; er soll mit seinem Schiff eine Ladung Gold durch gefährliche Gewässer bringen, die von malaiischen Piraten unsicher gemacht werden. An Bord ist eine sehr gemischte Gesellschaft. Nicht zuletzt machen zwei hübsche Frauen dem Kapitän zu schaffen: die burschikose "China Doll" und die feine Lady Sybil, die beide in ihn verliebt sind. (Pressetext BR3)

Reviews in German: "Gable ist superb in der Rolle des resoluten, aber noblen Kapitäns, Jean
Harlow pures Vergnügen als tropisches Luder und Wallace Beery ist so finster
und dabei so humorvoll, dass dieser Charakter fasziniert und erschreckt
zugleich..." (Motion Picture Guide)
