She Done Him Wrong

Mae West was one of those classic broads from the silver screen.           She Done Him Wrong, directed by Lowell Sherman was a top-grossing film in 1933.  Released by Paramount Pictures, it starred Mae West (as Lady Lou) and Cary Grant (as Capt. Cummings.)  In 1935, the Hays Office deemed the film too racy and would not allow it to be shown again until Paramount made the necessary edits.  Other films released that year?  King Kong, Duck Soup, and Baby Face.                                                                                      

She Done Him Wrong.  
Screenplay by: John Bright, Mae West, Harvey Thew

Notable quote from the film:

"I wasn't always rich.  No, there was a time when I didn't know where my next husband was coming from."

Now, doesn't that sound like something a Kardashian might say?
