I'm No Angel Overview:

I'm No Angel (1933) was a Comedy - Musical Film directed by Wesley Ruggles and produced by William LeBaron.


One of two riotous pairings of Grant and West, with Mae scoring most of the points as a circus performer who spends most of her offstage time fleecing her would-be suitors. Slippery ladies' man Grant's a more difficult catch, and the spurned West throws the whole thing into a madcap courtroom scene. Plenty of opportunity for sly double entendres as West must confront her many dalliances.
