Mae West: Noble Obit

A champion, who had many triumphs to recall, most fondly remembered working in a motion picture with MAE WEST.
• • Horse trainer, humanitarian, and historian, nobody put together as long and meaningful a life as Noble Threewitt, who died this weekend at age 99, writes Steve Schuelein.
• • "I used to tell people that one of the wonderful things about this business is that you meet people from all walks of life," Noble Threewitt told THOROUGHBRED TIMES in January 2002. That included meeting actress Mae West when he played the role of a jockey in the 1935 Paramount Studios movie, "Goin' To Town."
• • Born 24 February 1911, in the Southern Illinois agricultural town of Benton, Threewitt trained more than 2,000 winners after taking out his trainer's license at Agua Caliente, Mexico, in 1931, notes Steve Schuelein.
