The National Legion of Decency was formed in October of 1933, six months after the release of this film. Legion officials cited Mae West and the film as one of the major reasons for the "necessity" of the organization. See more »

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.
