I’M NO ANGEL
1933, Universal, 87 min, USA, Dir: Wesley Ruggles

Singing, dancing lion tamer Mae West goes from Big Bill Barton’s Wonder Show to the bright lights of the Big Apple in this saucy romantic comedy. Wealthy Cary Grant is one of the men smitten with West, until her past threatens their engagement. But Mae isn’t one to take “no” for an answer! The blonde sex symbol penned the dialogue to this pre-Code hit – arguably her best - enshrining such lines as “It's not the men in your life that count, it's the life in your men” in movie immortality.
