Nick Ferraro, deported crime boss, needs to re-enter the USA. His plan involves "honest" gambler Dan Milner, who's subjected to a series of "misfortunes," then bribed to take a trip to Mexico. En route, Dan meets chanteuse Lenore Brent, truly his kind of woman. But on arrival at posh Morros Lodge in Baja California, Dan finds the ostensibly rich, carefree guests all playing roles...except, possibly, ham actor Mark Cardigan. What does Ferraro want with him? Can he trust anyone?

Nick Ferraro's yacht was built entirely on RKO's Stage 22 - at the time the largest sound stage in the world. Initially, only a bridge set was called for, but studio owner Howard Hughes wanted more fighting scenes and more of everything in the finale, so an entire ship set was built to satisfy his wishes.

[speaking of Dan Milner
I want him to be fully conscious. I don't like to shoot a corpse. I want to see the expression on his face when he knows it's coming.
