My Little Chickadee

My Little Chickadee FINAL Image

Celebrating its 75th anniversary, this iconic Western comedy stars Mae West as the feisty Flower Belle Lee, who leaves her prudish hometown following accusations of having illicit relations with the Masked Bandit. She marries con man Cuthbert J. Twillie for the semblance of respectability, but withholds his conjugal rights by keeping him at bay with a seemingly endless supply of stinging one-liners. Driven by ulterior motives, town boss Jeff Badger appoints the cowardly Twillie as sheriff. After a botched ruse to win his way into Flower Belle’s bed lands Twillie in the gallows, the key to his survival lies in her hands.
