Mae West: In the Back Seat

During her career, gutsy MAE WEST never took a back seat — — except when she was being driven by her chauffeur.
• • Here's what Mae was doing seventy-six years ago on 16 April 1934, during the height of the Depression: the Paramount Pictures star had ordered and signed for a 1934 V-12 Cadillac Town Cabriolet. The specifications indicated: a black chassis; wire wheels; the top (or roof) in Landau black leather; and luxurious custom upholstery in black leather.
• • No deprivation for Mae during the Great Depression. Here she is on the April 1935 issue of Movie Mirror edited in New York City by Macfadden Publications. That expression says it all: "Mae's riding high!"
