It’s Great to Be Alive. 1933. USA. Directed by Alfred L. Werker. With Raúl Roulien, Edna May Oliver, Gloria Stuart. 35mm. 69 min.

In Fox’s frisky pre-Code sex comedy, Brazilian matinee idol Raúl Roulien croons his way through a plague of “masculitis” to become the last man on Earth. While a team of women scientists, led by Edna May Oliver, scramble to invent a synthetic surrogate for the world’s male population, a cigar-chomping lady gangster (Dorothy Burgess) hatches a plot to kidnap the reformed Lothario and auction him off to the highest bidder.
