Mae West: Back in Brooklyn

Cary Grant made a memorable male lead for MAE WEST in two crowd-pleasing comedies.
• • Cary Grant's first screen partnership with Mae West was in "She Done Him Wrong" [released in the USA on 9 February 1933]. And the Brooklyn Academy of Music has devoted August 3rd — 20th to screening Cary Grant classics.
• • Though the Gay Nineties Bowery classic is not on the bill, they will be screening the Pre-Code charmer “I’m No Angel” [originally released on 6 October 1933].
• • This month, treat yourself to a number of Cary Grant titles such as Monday’s “Blonde Venus” [released in the USA on 16 September 1932], the Hollywood vehicle that provided Cary Grant with his first leading role — — opposite Marlene Dietrich.
• • BAM's website has details about when you can enjoy that tall, dark, and handsome gentleman in George Cukor’s “Holiday,” an energetic collaboration with Katharine Hepburn; an appealing laugh-fest “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House,” co-starring Myrna Loy; Alfred Hitchcock’s “Suspicion,” with Joan Fontaine, and other favorites.
• • BAM Rose Cinemas [30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217] is the place to be on Tuesday evening — — when "I'm No Angel" will be shown on 4 August 2009 at 6:50 PM and again that night at 9:15 PM.
