Mae West: John Leipold

Original music was written specially for "I'm No Angel" [1933], "Belle of the Nineties" [1934], "Goin' to Town" [1935], "Klondike Annie" [1936], and "The Heat's On" [1943] starring MAE WEST.
• • One of several uncredited collaborators for all of these motion pictures starring Mae was John Leipold, who worked on more than 250 projects in Hollywood from 1929 — 1953 for Paramount Pictures and other movie studio companies.
• • Born in Ulster County, New York during the month of February — — on 26 February 1888 — — John Max Leipold composed stock music as well as the score for many cinema stand-outs. His work amplified big screen documentaries, family entertainment, dramas, comedies, Westerns, mysteries, patriotic military-themed pictures, the "Blondie" series, and more. He also created atmospheric music for "Go West, Young Lady" [1941] released by Columbia Pictures — — a title that sounds suspiciously familiar. Leopold did not work on "Go West, Young Man," however.
• • John Leipold died at age 82 in Dallas, Texas on 8 March 1970.
