Mae West: Outdoor Surprise

Thank you for visiting MAE WEST on Valentine's Day!
• • Next time you're on the Seminole County Trail, see if you can spot this intriguing fence.
• • Mae West at Film Forum • •
• • As part of their salute to 1933, New York City's premiere movie house Film Forum is presenting a gold rush that is one month long — — mining the best motion pictures from 1933. This four-week festival runs from Friday, 8 February 2013 through the first week of March, ending on Thursday, 7 March 2013.
• • Mae West will be on hand for two separate double features and the first date will be on Wednesday, 27 February 2013 when fans can enjoy a two-fer: "She Done Him Wrong" and "Broadway Through a Keyhole" (based on Walter Winchell's columns).
• • Another 1933 favorite on the schedule is "I'm No Angel" on Friday, 1 March 2013.
• • Come up to see Mae on West Houston Street.
• • On Tuesday, 14 February 1933 • •
• • Variety's reporter "Bige" wrote an article on "She Done Him Wrong." The magazine ran it on pages 12 and 21 in their issue dated for Tuesday, 14 February 1933.
• • On Friday, 14 February 1964 • •
• • The publication was the Watertown Daily Times and the issue was dated for Friday, 14 February 1964. The bold headline (on page 5) was: Mae West Lures "Mr. Ed" To Equine Dream House.
• • "I've vamped a lot of males in my time," purred the 72-year-old veteran of stage, screen, and night clubs, "but this is the first time they've asked me to charm a horse!"
• • Until Wednesday, 14 February 2001 in NYC • •
• • In December 1999, Hourglass Group presented the first New York City revival of Mae West's notorious 1926 play "Sex," the show that helped land West in jail and made her (in)famous. Directed by Elyse Singer, the play starred Carolyn Baeumler in the role of Margy LaMont, originally created by West and featured music by Steven Bernstein's Sex Mob. "Sex" ran Off-Broadway to standing room only audiences at the Gershwin Hotel until Wednesday, 14 February 2001. Bravo.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: "Guess I was way ahead of my time. And maybe the time is right now for a Mae West comeback."
• • Mae West said: "I may be a bad woman but I'm a good actress."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • In February 1933, Variety mentioned Mae West.
• • Variety's reporter "Bige" wrote: Mae West in pictures should stand out as she did in legit — —  as a distinct personality ...

• • By the Numbers • • 
• • The Mae West Blog was started eight years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2577th 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.
