One of the very few Mae West movies that escaped the butchery of Hays censorship, this film is 70% filler, but when Miss West steps into the picture, her star quality just explodes out of the screen. Every drawled line is loaded with smutty innuendo, every man would sell his soul for her. West plays a woman who makes no secret of enjoying sex, nor of her willingness to use men as playthings who also buy her diamonds. in 1933 she already had conventional gender politics standing on its head, and was funnier and sexier than everyone else in Hollywood put together. If you never understood why Mae West achieved lasting fame, watch this to see a natural star at work, making it all look so easy.
