| Hurried remake
Gambling On The High Seas is a remake of the Bette Davis-George Brent-Ricardo Cortez film Special Agent. This version seemed to be done a real hurry like the players had to report to other and better films on the Warner Brothers lot.

Wayne Morris gets his girlfriend Jane Wyman to betray her boss Gilbert Roland a racketeer who runs a gambling ship beyond the 3 mile limit. Wyman didn't seem to take much convincing.

Gilbert Roland maybe looked the most bored of all the cast members. Usually a sparkling personality he displays none of the charm he is noted for either as a hero or a villain.

It's a bet that none of the three leads looked on this as the pinnacle of their careers.
