She Done Him Wrong is a American film directed by Lowell Sherman and starring Mae West, Cary Grant, and Owen Moore.

Lou becomes entangled with the law when her ex-boyfriend, a criminal, is sent to jail for robbery. She goes to visit him and quickly becomes involved in illegalities that leave her disposing of a body. A federal agent, who has been watching Lou and the Bowery, intervenes and Lou's life changes for the dramatic' and romantic. Also starring Gilbert Roland and Rochelle Hudson, She Done Him Wrong was hugely successful upon its release in 1933 and is famous for many of Mae West's quips and one-liners.
