On wall of producer's office is a presumably old publicity shot of Fay wearing an elaborate headdress that she doesn't actually wear until she performs a musical number later in film for an entirely new production staged by rival producer. See more »
Watching this is painful. Mae West has little to do. What she has, she does decently. Mae was never a true beauty, at least not in movies. Here she looks her age and the Gay Nineties costume seems more out of place than it does in other, earlier, better movies.
She isn't even billed over the title.
It's a hapless review, with Xavier Cugat and some corn-pone comedy.
Hazel Scott's appearances are good but nothing I'd have sought out and irrelevant to Mae.
Sextette seemed like a vanity production, a mistake of her own making. This is a hodgepodge that gives her little to do and is as prim as the bluenose character in its plot (amusingly played by Almira Sessions
