Mae West tells Cary Grant to "come up and see me sometime!", 15 October 2004
Author: mdm-11 from United States

A True Mae West Gem! This is Ms West's first feature film, and it certainly has her "signature" come-back lines throughout. For the first time her most famous line "come up and see me sometime" was taken in by cinema goers, and for years to come it was America's favorite "quote".

The plot centers around New York's bowery ca. 1900. Mae West is "Diamond Lil", the mistress of a big-time gangster, who two times her man because she can't resist tall, dark and handsome Cary Grant. The heat is on, but soon the story takes a twist (nothing that could take away any "cool confidence" from Diamond Lil, of course; she laughs it all off with more clever come-back lines).

This movie is a classic Hollywood gem. It was a smash hit when it opened, and since then it has lost none of its appeal. Mae West remains one of my favorite true movie stars, and she was never given proper credit for her screen writing genius! You're gonna like this picture!
