Mae West? Who the heck’s Mae West? Really? Well, she ain’t no cancelled stamp, we can tell you that, and if you check out our sockdollager double-feature at the Heights Theater tonight, you, too, can finally say “I know my onions” about the greatest film comedienne of the first half of the 20th Century.
That’s enough jazz age slang for now (or forever), but we will say that the double-feature of I’m No Angel and She Done Him Wrong, continuing our happy Ain’t We Got Fun: Pre-Code Hollywood series is just about the best introduction you’re ever going to get to the wonderful world of West.
The night’s festivities kick off with I’m No Angel, which pairs her with the dapper Cary Grant, and sees Mae fighting to win her man (and, man, does she ever!) “A story about a gal who lost her reputation – and never missed it!”
She Done Him Wrong is a crazy melodrama full of music and double entendres, and once again sees West getting Cary Grant all hot and bothered.
Don’t miss these fabulous pictures–once you see Mae West on the big screen, you’ll see why she was the top box office attraction of the late 20s!
I’m No Angel screens at 7:30; She Done Him Wrong shows at 9:20. One ticket gets you into both shows; however, if you are using a Take-Up Productions Punch Card you need TWO PUNCHES (one per show) for both movies. Purchase tickets here.
Just a taste of She Done Him Wrong to whet your appetite…
