The Heat's On

Mae West is cast as Fay Lawrence, a famous Broadway actress who is loved intensely by her producer Tony Ferris (William Gaxton). Rival producer Forrest Stanton (Alan Dinehart) steals Fay by convincing her that she's been blacklisted by moralist Hannah Bainbridge. Add to this Fay's dead-beat brother helping himself to her money and an improbable convergance of all of these characters for a spectacular closing number and you've got the Mae West take on the traditional Broadway musical.
