Mae West: Annual Testimonial

MAE WEST was once feted on March 21st. Grab a glass of champagne and follow me.
• • On Sunday, 21 March 1982, Miss West and her career were the subject of the annual testimonial dinner put on by the Friends of the Libraries at the USC campus in Los Angeles, wrote Jon Tuska in his book "The Complete Films of Mae West."
• • The event was organized by Stanley Musgrove, president of the group, and his co-author George Eells. They summoned this gathering to introduce their biography about the Brooklyn bombshell which had been published by Morrow that year: "Mae West: The Lies, the Legend, the Truth."
• • Jon Tuska continued: "Paul Novak was there. He stood up and took a bow, but he didn't say anything. His image of Miss West in her declining years would probably have been a damper on the whole occasion."
• • Oh, my. Don't you wish you had been invited to that annual testimonial dinner and gotten a free autographed copy?
• • Timothy Dalton's Birthday • •
• • Mae West's co-star and screen husband in "Sextette," Timothy Dalton was born in March — — on Thursday, 21 March 1946. He is 68 today and we wish him a Happy Birthday!
• • On Saturday, 21 March 1936 in the Hollywood Reporter • •
• • The trade publication Hollywood Reporter followed the back-biting between Will Hays and the film starring Mae West "Klondike Annie." They printed an article about this in their issue dated for Saturday, 21 March 1936.
• • On Monday, 21 March 2005 • •
• • Talented Tom Tierney, who does the enjoyable series for Dover on celebrity paper dolls, released his beautiful work "Mae West Paper Doll" in paperback on Monday, 21 March 2005.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • Hollywood, who loves a good, hearty feud, was anticipating with much enthusiasm the opportunity of seeing George Raft and Mae West crowding each other in the close-ups of "It Ain't No Sin."
• • George Raft was eager to play opposite the voluptuous star feeling, not without reason, that he could hold his own.  "No matter how small my part is," George insisted, "I'm going to play it if I can write one line of dialogue into the script."
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: “Sometimes I think I'm a narrow-minded woman."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • A poetry calendar mentioned Mae West. 
• • Christine Kennedy is a Sheffield-based writer and artist. Her publications include contributions to Reality Street’s 4Pack 4: Renga+ and the chapbook Possessions (2003). Recent work includes the group show 10x10x10 at Sheffield’s Bloc Studios and Dusting the Mae West Memorial Library.  ...

• • The Mae West Blog was started nine years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2875th 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.
