Mae West: Vegas Memories

Anita Harris, age 67, met MAE WEST during the 1950s when she was invited to perform in Las Vegas. Here's a snippet from a recent interview that News of the World did with the perky Scottish songstress.
• • NOTW: Once you got to Sin City, you found yourself rubbing shoulders with Mae West and Frank Sinatra. What are your favourite memories from that time?
• • ANITA HARRIS: Mae was a very large lady. Very statuesque. But she loved her men. The male dancers from our production often used to go out on the town with their counterparts on her show. And Frank? Well, Sinatra was beautiful. When he performed you could tell he wanted to give his best and that was a great lesson for me. The way he engaged you as if he was just singing to you. ...
• • Currently, Anita Harris is back onstage delighting audiences in Scotland with a special 25th anniversary production of "Stepping Out" at Dundee Rep and elsewhere. Good luck, Anita!
