In this oft hilarious, one-liner filled, old West-set, self-penned dual-star vehicle, the excellent Mae West’s decidedly sexy Flower Belle Lee gets drummed out of town for cavorting with a masked bandit, fends off some rampaging Indians, pretends to marry a perma-drunk New York conman (co-writer Fields), flirts with a local saloon bar owner, bats her eyelids at the resident aw-shucks do-gooder, tames a class full of rowdy school boys, and, eventually before any real harm is done, manages to just about do the right thing – well, sort of, any way... oh, and she sings a bit, too!
