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.

Sad that this film was produced by Monogram with the artistic touch that only Sam Katzman could give it. I'm in complete agreement with the other reviewer who said there's a lot missing from Sensation Hunters.
Had this been done at 20th Century Fox this would have been a great story for Tyrone Power and one of his heel characters. He would be doing Nightmare Alley in a few years over there and that is very similar to this film. Robert Lowery is the heel/protagonist who goes through a bevy of B picture actresses as a gigolo.
No big studio would have touched this film, but a large studio without code restrictions would have given this the proper production. The cast also might have had some decent direction. And in the Katman/Monogram tradition the editing was atrocious.
What might have been.
