She Done Him Wrong
Mae West and Cary Grant

Although not made until 1933, was based on a play West wrote much earlier. She started out in the burlesque houses of New York after the turn of the century. West was born in 1893, same year Silver Dollar was born. They were both writers. West wrote three plays and had them produced, went to jail on obscenity charges and donates 1000 bucks to start a library at the jail when she left.
