#124 She Done Him Wrong (1933)
Director: Lowell Sherman
Cast: Mae West, Cary Grant, Owen Moore, Gilbert Roland, Noah Beery, David Landau
"Come up and see me sometime."
Finally I know where this classic line comes from! I have to admit, Mae West was anything but boring in this film-- though her jewl-clad presence and stage songs were totally bizarro. Cary Grant was graceful and beautiful and fantastic as ever, but it is hard to believe that Mae West attracts attention of every man in the town with her butch humor and excessive accessories. Hats off to old Hollywood-- a great classic.
