I'm No Angel (1933)
This Mae West/Cary Grant film came out just before the Hays Code took effect, which explains West's saucy dialogue. P.S. We need this quote embroidered onto a T-shirt.
To Be or Not to Be (1942)
Long before Unsolved Mysteries, Robert Stack was quite the stud. At least Carole Lombard thought so, resulting in some risqué banter. Eat your heart out, Samantha Jones.
