Mae West: Love Goddess

Released in 1965, the documentary "The Love Goddesses" features fabulous archival footage on MAE WEST — — and one of the movie queens sharing screen credit is attached to August 29th.
• • Using clips from the Hollywood heyday of several bold-faced beauties who graced the silver screen, "The Love Goddesses" shows how the movie industry changed its portrayal of sex and sex appeal from the silent movie era to the present. Scenes are shown from the silent classic "True Heart Susie" starring Lillian Gish, "She Done Him Wrong" starring Mae West (1933), "Love Me Tonight" (1932) starring Jeanette MacDonald (in her pre-Nelson Eddy interval), "A Place in the Sun" (1951) starring Elizabeth Taylor, and many other celluloid sizzlers — — such as the female star of "Casablanca" Ingrid Bergman, who was born on 29 August 1915 and who also died on that date on 29 August 1982.
