Forced to leave town until she can prove she is respectable-- and married-- Flowerbelle boards a train where she meets incorrigible Guthbert J. Twillie (Fields). Believing he's quite a catch, Flowerbelle accepts Twillie's marriage proposal.

It is well documented that Fields and West did not like each other.

With "My Little Chickadee" now being 76 years old - I certainly did take into consideration that attitudes and opinions towards everything (including that of comedy) changes over time - But, all the same - This flick really should've been a whole lot more comical than it actually was. In fact - The teaming up of W.C. Fields and Mae West should've made this picture an absolute laugh-riot. It's true.

What I found ironic was that this film's script was actually a "team-of-two" collaboration between Fields and West, exclusively.... And, with that in mind - I found that the scenes in the story where Fields and West were placed together, conversing with one another, were always the moments when things were the least amusing.

From closely observing Fields' and West's interaction with one another - I'm dead-certain that I actually detected a subtle hint of genuine animosity going on between these 2 entertainers. I could be mistaken about this, but I don't think I am.

Anyway - That about wraps up my review of "My Little Chickadee". Even from a purely nostalgic point of view this film wasn't very good comedy-entertainment. Nope. It sure wasn't... (*Watch movie-trailer*)
