A Devil with Women is the best way to describe soldier-of-fortune Jerry Maxton (Victor McLaglen). At large in South America, Maxton romances anything in skirts, though he seems most attached to fair senorita Rosita (Mona Maris). Unfortunately for his libido, Maxton must contend with a band of Mexican bandits who, as capper to their other misdeeds, kidnap the heroine. Racing to the rescue are Maxton and his new pal, wastrelly rich man's son Tom Standish (a surprisingly clean-cut Humphrey Bogart, in his third film). Legend has it that A Devil with Women was supposed to be the opening volley in a McLaglen-Bogart series; thank heaven this didn't happen, else Casablanca would have starred Ronald Reagan after all.
