  • I always did like a man in a uniform. That one fits you grand. Why don't you come up sometime and see me? I'm home every evening.


Misquoted or misattributedEdit

  • Is that a gun [or pistol] in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?
    • Despite many claims, this line was never uttered by anyone in this or any other film that starred Mae West, prior to Sextette in 1978. According to the Quote Investigator she ad-libbed something similar during a rehearsal for her comedic play, Catherine was Great (1944), which was told in The Nine Lives of Michael Todd by Art Cohn (1958).
