Mae West: Gem Trader

"MAE WEST becomes a gem trader!"
• • That was the headline in The Washington Post on 17 February 1937.
• • With a guard nearby, reported the newspaper, the Paramount Pictures star Mae West has entered the field of gem trading — — and now sets aside one day a week to do deals. [They didn't call her "Diamond Lil" for nothing.]
• • Well, that's better than becoming a germ trader, eh?
