The impeccable Mae West (She Done Him Wrong) is Peaches O’Day, a con artist who befriends Captain Jim McCarey (Edmund Lowe, Chandu the Magician), a cop who must turn her in unless she leaves town. The clever Peaches returns transformed as sultry brunette and Parisian sensation Mademoiselle Fifi. After catching the show, crooked mayoral candidate John Quade (Lloyd Nolan, The House on 92nd Street) tries to close it down when Peaches demurely declines his romantic overtures. Captain McCarey jumps in the race for mayor against Quade, and the loyal Peaches fervently campaigns for him. With the help of jazz great Louis Armstrong (A Man Called Adam) on trumpet, an enthusiastic Mae rallies the crowd to “Laugh, Sing and Vote!” in a delightful final scene. Written by West and directed by A. Edward Sutherland (It’s the Old Army Game).
