Mae West: Hot and Happy

The Mae West Blog wishes all our visitors a hot and happy Fourth of July — and take a moment to note on your calendar that the next MAE WEST Birthday Gala in New York City will be on Thursday evening, 16 August 2012 in lower Manhattan.  Save the date and don't be late to the party where wine, women, and song await.

• • The Mae West Blog was started eight years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2352nd blog post. Unlike many blogs, which draw upon reprinted content from a newspaper or a magazine and/ or summaries, links, or photos, the mainstay of this blog is its fresh material focused on the life and career of Mae West, herself an American original.
