I'm No Angel ★★★ 1933

“Beulah, peel me a grape.” Well, you'd be hungry too if you spent your time eyeing playboy Grant as West does. She's a circus floozy who's prone to extorting money from her men (after hashing over their shortcomings with her seen-it-all-maid, the aforementioned Beulah). However, after wooing Grant, she sues for breach of promise. This leads to a comic courtroom scene with Grant bringing in all West's ex-lovers as witnesses. Grant's second film with West, following “She Done Him Wrong.” 88m/B VHS, DVD . Mae West, Cary Grant, Gregory Ratoff, Edward Arnold, Ralf Harolde, Kent Taylor, Gertrude Michael, Russell Hopton, Dorothy Peterson, William B. Davidson, Gertrude Howard, Hattie McDaniel; D: Wesley Ruggles; W: Lowell Brentano, Mae West; C: Leo Tover; M: Harvey Brooks.
