Paramount Window Card Trimmed to 14x18 Very Good to Fine

We anticipate getting this Mae West window card restored. Until then we are offering it at a discount. Original Paramount Pictures Window Card for the Lowell Sherman romantic comedy, SHE DONE HIM WRONG (1933) starring Mae West, Owen Moore, and Cary Grant. Mae West was already a veteran of burlesque, vaudeville, and Broadway by the time she made her first movie in 1933 at age 39. This is Mae West's second film and first starring role in an adaptation of her smash Broadway hit play, "Diamond Lil," which played to packed houses for years. Indeed, West would go on to write 9 of the 14 screenplays in which she was the star, and by 1935 she was the most highly paid woman in America. This film coupled with her other hit from 1933-- I'M NO ANGEL-- saved Paramount from bankruptcy. The film was so wildly popular that it made Cary Grant into an instant star. West is the queen of sexual innuendo and suggestive dialogue in this precode comedy; indeed, this film is cited as one of the reasons for instigating the code. Seven countries banned the film as lurid, and the film contains her most famous retort, "Come up sometime and see me." This original window card has been trimmed to 14 x 18 and has some water stains. These can be addressed in restoration. Please note that the male image on the poster is Owen Moore, not Cary Grant. A one-sheet for this film sold at Heritage Auctions in Dallas for $19,120.00.
