Nightclub singer Lady Lou (Mae West) finds herself torn between a city mission director (a young Cary Grant) and an ex-boyfriend and criminal (Owen Moore). A classic Mae West film, full of suggestive banter, it exemplifies many pre-Code films’ proclivity for explicit sexual innuendo. Selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry in 1996, many still fondly remember She Done Him Wrong for one controversial line in particular: “Why don’t you come up sometime and see me?”
