An investigative reporter looking into the illegal smuggling of Chinese immigrants finds more than he'd bargained for in this racy example of pre-Code Hollywood. Claudette Colbert, Ben Lyon, and Ernest Torrence star in this candid and suggestive drama from director James Cruze (The Great Gabbo). The film, controversial in its time, features everything from sharks to prostitutes, as well as a memorable and often-recorded theme song. (BW)
