Rightly suspected of illicit relations with the Masked Bandit, Flower Belle Lee is run out of Little Bend. On the train she meets con man Cuthbert J. Twillie and pretends to marry him for "respectability." Arrived in Greasewood City with his unkissed bride, Twillie is named sheriff by town boss Jeff Badger...with an ulterior motive. Meanwhile, both stars inimitably display their specialties, as Twillie tends bar and plays cards, and Flower Belle tames the town's rowdy schoolboys...Written by

Dick Foran, who was being paid by the week, would go to Mae West and tell her that W.C. Fields was rewriting his lines to give himself more screen time and to try to steal the film from her. Then he would go to Fields and tell him the same thing about West. In this manner he was able to extend his employment from a few weeks to several months, as both Fields and West - who didn't like each other - would hold up production while they would rewrite their scenes.

On the train out of town, after Cuthbert gives Flowerbelle the heart shaped charm, his hat starts on his head, but then suddenly its magically in his left hand (so he can use his right hand to hold onto the railing.) See more »
[the masked bandit shoots a gun, forcing the stagecoach to stop]
Whoa, hup! Whoa!
Drop those guns.
[the driver and his partner throw their guns to the ground and put their hands up]
Everybody get out.
[the passengers leave the stagecoach]
Do not try anything and nobody will get hurt.
He said to come out, Miss Flower Belle.
Flower Belle Lee:
Well, I got nothing he wants.
I will be the judge of that. Come out, or I will have to kill all these nice people.

Boy, I thought seeing W.C. Fields and Mae West in the same movie would really be something! However, the only thing it turned out to be was just plain annoying. I could barely get past the first 15 minutes.
West's "routine" gets tiresome in a hurry. All she does, scene after scene, is roll up her eyes and say something she thinks is clever and-or funny. Since she co-wrote the script with Fields, I'm sure she thought those lines were good, but I heard nothing humorous in them. The soft lens on her on every time is pretty obvious, too. What were they trying to cover up?
Her reputation is far better than her performance.
As for Fields, he was better off in his own films where he could ham it up on his own. He had a few amusing bits, but nothing memorable.
