Summary, etc.:
Comedy legends Mae West and W.C. Fields team up in their one and only film together, My Little Chickadee. The reputation of voluptuous Flower Belle Lee (Mae West) is tarnished when she is seen embracing a masked bandit in her bedroom. Forced to leave town until she can return married and respectable, Flower Belle boards a train where she meets the incorrigible Cuthbert J. Twillie (W.C. Fields) and soon accepts his marriage proposal. The fun continues as the newlyweds arrive at the town of Greasewood where Twillie's exaggerated tales of adventure earn him the honor of becoming the sheriff of the town and bartender at "The Last Gasp" saloon. Filled with fast-paced one-liners, this comedy classic showcases two iconic superstars at their best.
