Mae West: In Palo Alto

In Palo Alto, California, the Stanford Theatre invites you to come up and see MAE WEST.
• • From Saturday January 31st — Monday February 2nd, 2009, movie buffs can enjoy two classics from the pre-Code era: "She Done Him Wrong" [1933] on the same bill with "Gold Diggers of 1933."
• • One original billboard was pretty frisky. "Swinging hips, bedroom eyes, and the throaty growl of an amorous cat — — she just doesn't give a damn!" slavered the hand-colored poster, describing the Lady Lou character.
• • "She Done Him Wrong" will be screened at 6:15 PM and also at 9:20 PM.
• • Mae's break-out screen gem was first released by Paramount Pictures on 9 February 1933.
• • "Gold Diggers" features Dick Powell, Ruby Keeler, Warren Williams, Joan Blondell, and Guy Kibbee. Marian Anderson dubbed Joan Blondell's singing voice. Choreographed by Busby Berkeley, this is extravagant eye-candy indeed.
• • Contact: Stanford Theater — — 221 University Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94301 — — Cross Streets: Between Emerson Street and Ramona Street; Tel: (650) 324-3700.
