She Done Him Wrong
Directed by Lowell Sherman • 1933 • United States
Starring Mae West, Cary Grant, Gilbert Roland
“Why don’t you come up sometime and see me?” purrs a seductive Mae West to a fetching young Cary Grant in this star-making smash hit based on West’s successful play, “Diamond Lil.” She is at her absolute peak playing glamorous Bowery saloonkeeper Lady Lou, who falls for Grant’s idealistic young mission priest, marrying winking eroticism with scalding wit in a rapid-fire salvo of eyebrow-raising double entendres. More than a film, SHE DONE HIM WRONG is the announcement of a sensational new screen personality who pushed pre-Code innuendo to its limits.
