SHE DONE HIM WRONG
December 1, 2014  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 9:30 p.m. ET

 

Mae West plays sexy and suggestive nightclub singer Lady Lou in this 1933 comedy, her first starring role – and one of only two films she made before censors at the time clamped down stringently on the type of double entrendre, and straight-out sexual aggressiveness, that was her stock in trade. He co-star here is a young Cary Grant – but even he is bowled over, if not steamrolled over, by West’s self-penned, tossed-off one-liners.
