She Done EVERYTHING RIGHT!
11 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Well here it is…legendary blonde-bombshell Mae West's smash hit screen version of her smash hit stage play Diamond Lil! It is a fine film to be sure. This movie has been selected by the American Film Institute as one of the best black and white movies of all time (it has also been recognized by other organizations like-wise).

Mae is fantastic in this comedy/drama about the escapades of 'Lady Lou.' This movie was a HUGE success and saved Paramount Pictures from bankruptcy when it was released because it made so much money. It was also nominated for an Academy Award.

The movie features Cary Grant (this is the film that made him a star) and there is magic in the air when Grant and West get together. It is full of legendary Mae West one-liners. When Mae tells Cary to 'come up' and see her sometime there is electricity in the air!! Mae drips with diamonds, funny sayings (that have since became history), fabulous gowns and amusing situations.

Of course this movie is in black and white, which may make it less desirable to some people. I was a bit surprised by some of the comments here, considering the legendary, classic status of this film. It is in every way one of the ALL TIME film classics, and should be viewed as such. This is not just my opinion; it is considered one of the true classics of all time. I would definitely recommend it, as do MANY organizations! It is a wonderful showcase for one of the greatest stars of all time.
