Mae West was one of the most controversial and popular stars of the 1930s, often credited with single-handedly saving Paramount Pictures from bankruptcy. In I’m No Angel she stars as sideshow singer Tira, who makes extra bank by helping rob male customers at her shows. She eventually works her way to New York, where she sets her sights on a rich mark with an uptight fiancée. Trying to break Tira’s hold on his friend, Cary Grant instead falls for the con artist—until he finds out about her scandalous past. A pre–Hays Code classic filled with nonstop, wisecracking double entendres as only Mae West can deliver! (87 mins., 4K DCP)
