Ruby Carter (the flawless Mae West, She Done Him Wrong), the night club sensation of St. Louis, relocates to New Orleans and becomes the prize attraction of “The Sensation Club.” West’s risqué brand of humor and naughty musical numbers enliven a plot that involves jewel thieves, a fixed boxing match and murder. Co-written by West, directed by the great Leo McCarey (Duck Soup, The Awful Truth, Going My Way) and featuring Duke Ellington and His Orchestra who provide musical accompaniment for several of West’s songs.
