Sensing all the ingredients for a box office success, MGM's Irving Thalberg personally selected China Seas for stars Gable and Harlow - the fourth on-screen pairing of the sex symbols - in an attempt to repeat the success of their recent match-up in Red Dust (1932). "To hell with art this time," the MGM boy wonder is rumored to have said. "I'm going to produce a picture that will make money." Thalberg not only produced China Seas, he also reportedly meddled in director Tay Garnett's domain, visiting the set daily and coaching actors on their performances.
But the real attraction of China Seas was the white-hot duo of Gable and Harlow. Harlow's smoldering sensuality was especially well used in a performance that many noted bore a striking similarity to Marlene Dietrich's traveling temptress Shanghai Lily in 1932's Shanghai Express, which was no wonder since screenwriter Jules Furthman penned both scripts.
