I bought a DVD compilation of five of Mae West's films including this gem which was the first one in the collection. The film centers around George Raft, a New York City gangster Joe Anton, who has a speak easy during prohibition. Mae West played Maudie Triplette, a female friend of his with her unique saucy attitude and flair for dramatics. Joe Anton wants to be a gentleman so he hires a proper tutor, Miss Jellyman, to help him improve himself in private lessons. He's got problems with women like he's attracted to Park Avenue beauty, Jerry Healy, played by the great Constance Cummings and Iris is troubled disturbing as the woman who desires to have him. Anyway, the film has a bunch of laughs with seriousness even in the Great Depression. I found the film to be charming with the cast especially Mae West who steals every scene out from everybody else. She's only a supporting player but you can see who she does it.
