In “Goin’ to Town”, Mae finds herself back in contemporary style in a film choc full of her now famous wisecracks. Mae is once again gowned by Travis Banton - and he doesn’t let her down. Some of the creations are sensational and whereas feathers were the order of the day in “Belle”, fur abounds in this film.

She plays the role of Cleo Borden, a saloon singer who agrees to marry a “bad man” with plenty money who is killed in the first reel before the marriage has taken place. The “message” in this film is a debunking of the “class” system of the day by showing that low morals can be found just as readily in the upper echelons of society as in the beer rooms frequented by the lower classes
The picture began production under the working title of “Now I’m a Lady”, the title of the song that closes the film. That working title was very indicative of the plot line of the film which boils down simply to that of a hard-boiled dame who inherits a fortune, falls in love with a “high hat” and the action centres on her exploits to net him by buying her way into “society”.
The musical numbers in the film are fairly low-key when compared with those in “Belle”. The musical highpoint comes when, in an effort to impress her new society friends, Cleo stages the opera “Samson and Delilah” in her palatial home, and sings the aria, “My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice”. No dubbing for Mae, she sang the song herself and, whether intentional or not, the end result is absolutely hilarious.
As already mentioned, the film ends with the song, “Now I’m a Lady” into which the line “Come Up and See Me Sometime” is woven into the last line.  Mae delivers the line with a bow to the camera at last fade out. It is a sensational end to a highly amusing and in many ways uplifting film.
