| Sensational Mae in so-so film.
This Mae West film starts out in the tradition of her earlier movies, with the big buildup for her character and portraying New York life at the turn of the century. The politically motivated plot is boring beyond belief but we do get enough one liners from Mae to keep a smile on our faces throughout. Mae is noticeably slimmer in this film and wears some amazing and incredible costumes. Look especially for her first stage appearance as 'Mademoiselle Fifi' and watch her cape be lifted from her shoulders to become a vast curtained backdrop to the set, revealing another sensational costume beneath. Hoisted into the air at the finale surrounded by hordes of men she is truly in her element and looks fantastic. Her 'Fifi' disguise of black wig and bizarre extended eyelashes gives her quite a different look to the Mae West we are accustomed to. Unlike her earlier films, there's not a single handsome man in the film for Mae to get any chemistry going with and no female characters with more than a word or two. If you're a Mae West fan it's worth sitting through the dire 'comic' scenes with Charles Winninger and Charles Butterworth to admire her stunning projection of camp glamour.
