Do you mean to tell me that you're going to attempt Samson and Delilah?
Say, listen, I'll attempt anything once and what's more, I'm gonna sing Delilah.

Despite the constant changes in locale, Mae West's Going' to Town still has plenty of her ample charms to compensate
This is the third of the Mae West movies on the 5-film, 2-disc collection I just watched and I just found out, the first made after the Production Code became a bit more strict. It's a bit of a mess, to tell the truth what with the change in locales from the Wild West to South America to Southampton. And some of the plot points confused me. But as long as Ms. West manages to keep her zingers at the ready and get some good songs in, to boot, this is still a pretty enjoyable outing for her. And it's always fun to see her give it to the snobbish society ladies, that's for sure! The men, for the most part, are pretty interchangeable but really, there's still plenty to enjoy in Going' to Town.
