In another pre-Code wonder from 1933, the matchless Mae West plays Lady Lou, a saucy saloon singer who never met a man – or a double entendre – she didn’t like. This raunchy comedy follows Lou’s efforts to dismantle a former paramour’s prostitution ring, and the cat-and-mouse game that ensues when Lou sets her eyes on a stalwart undercover cop, played by an utterly dashing, young Cary Grant, who is out to reform her wanton ways. But sexually liberated Lou won’t change for any man, and audiences get to enjoy a film oozing with West’s one-of-a-kind wit and eroticism that couldn’t have been made in Hollywood even a year later.
