1933. USA. Dir: Wesley Ruggles. With Mae West, Cary Grant. 87 min.
Mae West sticks her head in a lion’s mouth and comes out a star, only to find herself caught between the criminal underworld and Grant’s suave socialite. But it’s not a problem for this wisecracking dame, who takes charge with her potent blend of sex appeal and verbal comedy. Preceded by W.C. Field’s absurd Yukon spoof THE FATAL GLASS OF BEER.
