When the Monogram feature film package was first sold to television circa 1948, this one was initially shown under its original title, i.e. Sensation Hunters, but when Monogram's 1933 film of the same title was sold to television about two years later, the title of this one was changed to "Club Paradise" in order to avoid confusion between the two.

This picture exhibits the same strain of pessimistic fatalism that underpins Edgar Ulmer's "Detour." Robert Lowery's blase demeanor is perfect for the role of the blue ribbon heel, Isabel Jewell is on hand to do her reliable turn as the cynical doxie, and there are a couple of lively tap numbers thrown in for good measure during a night club sequence.
The hopeless moodiness of a factory town cabaret is effectively established throughout.
Pair it with "Detour" and you'll have the perfect downbeat double bill, provided you accompany it with a steady stream of Chesterfield cigarette smoke, and a couple of quickly downed "side-cars." Good job Monogram.
