The Heat's On (1943) is a film by Mae West for Columbia Pictures, a satire on censorship. Mae hated the film but she did it anyway to keep the producer from bankruptcy. The film initially did not work so well, but it has also became a cult favorite. Mae's performance in it did attract some good reviews one of which said she was still "the freshest thing on the screen". In this film, Mae appeared at her thinnest. She looked astonishingly youthful and the film has become a late night favorite. Mae West, an early target of the Catholic Legion of Decency, may have had the Legion in mind as the model of the fictional Bainbridge Foundation.
