About the Movie
In her final film, 87-year-old Mae West portrays Marlo Manners, a movie star who has just married her sixth husband, a very young aristocrat. All Marlo wants to do is consummate the marriage. But her attempts are frequently thwarted, thanks to interruptions from her ex-husbands, the media, her fans, a gymnastic team, a group of diplomats, and even a few secret agents. And if that weren't enough, Marlo has another problem: an audio tape she's made of her steamy memoirs has mysteriously disappeared…

Rotten: Mae West's swan song to cinema at age 86 is one of the world's all-time worst movies, but that doesn't detract at all from its immense charm and lewd fascination.
I had to watch this as part of a college class on the history of censorship. Mae West figures very prominently into the history of censorship for always pushing the envelope with her risqué double-entendres and sex jokes. The thing is, what was considered "funny" back in her day was not considered funny anymore by the time she made "Sextette"...and it's CERTAINLY not funny by today's standards. I give Ms. West props for daring to make a movie in her old age, but the movie is an absolute mess. It's painfully unfunny, the music is dreadful, the actors put on very campy performances, and the script is......just....BAD beyond any witty description I can conjure up. Easily one of the worst movies ever made.
Where are her classic movies???
I dont understand why this is the only Mae West movie available...please give us the films that made her a star!
