Her bosomy hourglass figure, swathed in feathers, furs and diamonds, languid postures and her bawdy double entendres.
This daring ‘mistress of vulgarity’ with her naughty and cheerful sense of humor, started off in vaudeville and on the stage.
Then Mae West moved to Hollywood to become a comedian, actress, and also a writer in the motion picture industry, as well as appearing on radio and television.
This Hollywood icon was notorious for her self-written plays which dealt with so-called adult subject matter.
Among them are: Sex, The Wicked Age, Pleasure Man, and The Constant Sinner
