The Devil's Playground is a 1937 American romantic drama film directed by Erle C. Kenton and starring Dolores del Río, Chester Morris and Richard Dix. A remake of Frank Capra's Submarine (1928).


Submarine officers Dorgan (Richard Dix) and Mason (Chester Morris) battle on land for the affections of dance-hall girl Carmen (Dolores del Río). She marries Dorgan but makes a play for Mason when her husband is on duty. The romantic rivalry is forgotten when Dorgan must rescue Mason and his crew from a sunken sub.[1]
