Mae West in Hollywood 1932-1943 10 film Blu-ray box set in November

12 August 2021

On 22 November, Indicator presents a six-disc, ten-film limited edition Blu-ray box set dedicated to the truly one-of-a-kind Mae West.

Already a major star when she went to Hollywood in the early 1930s, having sensationalised Broadway, West found herself in a unique position of power and control. She would, as legend has it, pick her co-stars (including a young Cary Grant), receive screenwriter credits, and bait audiences and censors alike as the pre-Code era gave way to a more sanitised form of American filmmaking.

Encompassing all of her classic studio pictures, from her supporting turn in Night After Night through to the musical extravangaza of The Heat's On, Mae West in Hollywood, 1932-1943 presents all ten films from the finest available materials, with an extensive array of new and archival extra features, in a numbered, limited edition with a perfect-bound 120-page book.

The set includes an exclusive double-sided poster only available with direct orders from this website (poster features original designs for She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel). While stocks last.

The films are:

  • NIGHT AFTER NIGHT (Archie Mayo, 1932)
  • SHE DONE HIM WRONG (Lowell Sherman, 1933)
  • I’M NO ANGEL (Wesley Ruggles, 1933)
  • BELLE OF THE NINETIES (Leo McCarey, 1934)
  • GOIN’ TO TOWN (Alexander Hall, 1935)
  • KLONDIKE ANNIE (Raoul Walsh, 1936)
  • GO WEST YOUNG MAN (Henry Hathaway, 1936)
  • EVERY DAY’S A HOLIDAY (A Edward Sutherland, 1937)
  • MY LITTLE CHICKADEE (Edward F Cline, 1940)
  • THE HEAT’S ON (Gregory Ratoff, 1943)
