One of the incomparable Mae West’s best films, She Done Him Wrong provides the double treat of pairing her with a very young Cary Grant – before he gelled into his defining Cary Grant-ness.

Featuring the famous line, “Why don’t you come up sometime and see me,” West’s powers of persuasion are on full display as a saloon singer on the make. Made in the pre-code Hollywood era, West’s ribald and forward-thinking antics involving the battle of the sexes will not disappoint.
