This was the third version of this story which was based on an early play by Sam Shipman and John Hymer. A ship known as, believe it or not, "The Love Boat" arrives in a Chinese port. It's filled with men looking for Asian wives. Ayres steps off the ship and straight into an auction of
women. Velez has been put up for the highest bidder by her father, but Ayres saves the girl. Warren, a gentle Chinese oldster, takes her to San Francisco where she immediately runs afoul of a local bluenose group. Warren sells her to Robinson, a half-caste known as the Chop Suey King. Ayres
kidnaps Velez and wants to marry her but that puts him in a dangerous position with his family...
