Mae West steals whatever scenes she's in in Night After Night
Since I just checked from the library this 5-disc collection of Mae West movies, I dove right in to watch her first one, Night After Night. She's only a supporting role here but when she's on screen, she steals it for all it's worth. And now-forgotten supporting player Alison Skipworth, as a teacher hired to give speakeasy owner George Raft proper English lessons, is a hoot alongside West in her exchanges with Ms. West. The rest of the film is basically about Raft and his following of a proper lady played by Constance Cummings that wasn't bad to see but, really, without Mae, this movie would probably suffer in obscurity today. Can't wait to watch the other four soon...
