导演：莱奥·麦卡雷蕾澳·迈克卡雷导演的《九十岁的美女》，很显然更是一部当红女明星梅惠丝特的电影。梅惠丝特提供了故事，并且编写了剧本，同时还担任了对白的编写。在她参与表演的四部故事片中，只有1934年发行的这部电影显得特别突出。与1933年的《她做错了》和《我不是天使》相比，这部由她自编自演的电影为她提供了更多更富有价值的名声。她自己本身就具有非常强大的票房号召力，这部电影业在某种程度上就是她自己真实生活的写照。Ruby Carter, the American Beauty queen of the night club-sporting world, shifts her operations from St. Louis to New Orleans, mostly to get away from prizefighter Tiger Kid. Installed as the prize attraction of \"The Sensation Club\", ran by Ace Lamont, she quickly becomes the toast of the town and also marked as personal property by Ace, arousing the fury of Ace's former flame, Molly Brant. The not-overly-bright Tiger comes to town and is set for a title match with the champ by Ace, while the latter also has him steal some of Ruby's jewels. Ruby, no dumb-belle, figuring Ace has the fix in on the fight, uses some of her other jewels to lay a trap for Ace. Tiger confesses, after the fight, to Ruby his role in the jewel robbery while she hints that Ace was the one who slipped him the knock-out drops. Tiger goes after Ace, who, for his own reasons, has Molly locked in a closet.
