    Great scene! Mae in charge of the court. Her self confidence is overwhelming – and well deserved.

  2. Lovely post! It’s been a while since I’ve seen I’m No Angel, and I clearly need to remedy that. I forgot just how funny and great this scene is. I watched She Done Him Wrong not too long ago, hoping for another wonderful Mae West-Cary Grant flick, but it just didn’t stick with me like I’m No Angel did. I loved that you pointed out how West doesn’t let her character be ashamed of her past. She was something else, for sure.

    • Michaela, You’re right. She Done Him Wrong is fun, but it doesn’t have the same magic as I’m No Angel. I’ve never read the original play (Diamond Lil), but figured the changes made it not quite as strong.

  3. I took me a while to get into Mae West, but once I ‘got’ her I couldn’t get enough. No-one could give a cutting put down like her.
    I actually haven’t seen this one, so thanks for the intro 🙂
