Storyline

Set in New York City, Mae West is Peaches O'Day, a con artist who befriends Captain Jim McCarey (Edmund Lowe), a cop who must turn her in unless she leaves town. The clever Peaches returns transformed as sultry brunette and Parisian sensation Mademoiselle Fifi. After catching her show, crooked mayoral candidate John Quade (Lloyd Nolan) tries to close it down when Peaches demurely declines his romantic overtures. Captain McCarey jumps in the race for mayor against Quade, and the loyal Peaches fervently campaigns for him. As usual, Mae causes a commotion as she deftly maneuvers her way through a battle between the good and the corrupt.

Trivia

One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Mae West's pre-code reputation apparently influenced sponsors against it, even though it's strictly post-code, and airings were few and far between. One of its earliest documented telecasts took place in Pittsburgh Monday 18 April 1960 on KDKA (Channel 2). It was released on DVD 16 October 2012 as a single as part of the Universal Vault Series and again 8 March 2016 as one of nine titles in Universal's Mae West: The Essential Collection. See more »

The wonderful woman
22 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband purchased the DVD of this movie, as well as an original movie poster for my birthday. I am a huge Mae West fan, and have been all my life I suppose. She was a wonderfully talented woman, strong minded and strong willed, and not ashamed of who she was. It was a wonderful movie, and I suggest it to all who are able to get the opportunity to watch it. It has a wonderful cast, wonderful writing, direction is done well, and Ms. West is at her finest. She is absolutely stunning to say the least. This is one of those movies that will give you a belly laugh. Hope you all go down and try to find some of her wonderful work. She was a great writer, and actress, and did so much for women writers in her day and today.
