74. She Done Him Wrong

She Done Him Wrong

It has been a while since I saw this movie, but I don't remember liking it enough to watch it again.  I am not saying it was bad, but it just didn't make an impression on me.

Mae West is mixed up with a bunch of crooks.  She also loves diamonds.  Cary Grant plays her love interest.  I was so astonished at seeing Cary Grant that young that I wasn't even sure it was even him!  This movie is smart and sharp.  Just as a sidenote, I can do a really good Mae West impression.  I can also do Meryl Streep and Frenchie from Grease.  My sister can do Sarah Jessica Parker and the weird woman from High Noon.  We are quite the act. 

Anyway, this movie is fun.  You will probably enjoy all 66 minutes of it and then completely forget about it.  Unless you are a huge Mae West fan.  In which case, you are probably very interested in my Mae West impression.  It is quite impressive, I can assure you.

RATING: ***--

Interesting Facts:

"Why don't you come up sometime, see me" was voted #26 in AFI's top 100 movie quotes.

Shortest movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture.

I heard someone say today that they hated black and white movies.  Sigh...


  1. Unimpressive, was my reaction to this one. I do not see the attraction of Mae West. In fact she is pretty gross.

    1. Haha that comment made me laugh out loud. I didn't see her that way before but now I might not be able to help it.

  2. "Sarah Jessica Parker?? She looks like a foot!"

    1. Ah yes back when I could stomach Family Guy. Good times.
