Written by Mae West herself and directed by Wesley Ruggles (NO MAN OF HER OWN), this film is often credited as being one of the main reasons for the implementation of the Hays code and its stricter enforcement.
Screen legends Mae West (BELLE OF THE NINETIES) and Cary Grant (SHE DONE HIM WRONG) star in the sizzling Pre-Code comedy I'M NO ANGEL, about a carnival performer with greater aspirations...wealthy men! In addition to circus acts, Tira (West) performs some questionable business maneuvers and takes a job as a lion tamer to escape jail. After Tira’s first show catapults her to stardom, she attracts the attention of the wealthy Kirk Lawrence (Kent Taylor, THE PHANTOM FROM 10,000 LEAGUES) who happens to be engaged. His business partner, Jack Clayton (Grant), blows his friend’s cover and begins a romance with Tira. This time, Tira is in love for real and is devastated when a misunderstanding causes Jack to break off the affair. Serving as her own counsel, Tira sues Jack for breach of contract and takes him through a cross-examination he’ll never forget!
