New York singer and nightclub owner Lady Lou has more men friends than you can imagine, unfortunately one of them is a vicious criminal who's escaped and is on the way to see "his" girl, not realizing she hasn't exactly been faithful in his absence. Help is at hand in the form of young Captain Cummings, a local temperance league leader, though. Written by

Mea West really puts on one hell of a show. She could act, she could sing, and she could write. This decadent little period musical adapted from the play by West, herself, is surprisingly affective. The story is interesting, the characters are well developed, and though you might have been expecting fluff, you actually end up caring about what happens. West carries the picture as Lou, the beautiful nightclub singer and object of every man's desire. Lou is unlike any other female character put non screen up to this point. She is sexy, funny, brave, and blunt. She never relies on a male hero to show up and save the day, no matter what kind of trouble she gets into. The rest of the cast is decent but nothing special. That includes Cary Grant, who still had a long way to go. West makes them all look good, though. That's real talent.
