Mae West: Midwest Screening

MAE WEST will be applauded in Hyde Park today at 7 PM.
• • On Thursday 13 January 2010 you will have the opportunity to watch Mae's 66-minute cinema classic "She Done Him Wrong," co-starring a young Cary Grant.
• • "She Done Him Wrong" directed by Lowell Sherman • •
• • "Why don't you come up sometime and see me?" Mae West oozes sex while firing off brazen double-entendres in this racy pre-Code classic — — her first, finest, and most jaw-droppingly salacious vehicle. West plays Lady Lou, a singer at a Gay Nineties saloon, where she performs crowd-pleasing numbers like "Frankie and Johnny" and the suggestive “Where Has My Easy Rider Gone?” while also finding time to seduce an upstanding young temperance-leaguer (Grant) investigating the bar owner for corruption.
• • WHERE: University of Chicago Doc Films, 1212 E. 59th St., Chicago, IL 60615; Tel: 773-702-8575.
