Mae West: Eerie Experience

MAE WEST is part of a spooky night-time tour of Manhattan's Upper Westside.
• • Eerie experiences of Mae West • •
• • NYC tour guide Philip Ernest Schoenberg states that he will weave the eerie experiences of Mae West, Irving Berlin, and John Lennon during his weekend tour:  From “Ghost Busters” to John Lennon: The Ghosts of the Upper West Side.
• • This tour begins at what has become famous as the Ghostbusters building: 55 Central Park West (at West 66th Street), New York, NY.
• • On Friday, 13 June 2008 • •
• • In August 2005, media mainstay Joe Franklin enjoyed seeing scenes from the play "Courting Mae West" — — and in June 2008 he had a chance to get acquainted with an entirely different cast when he popped in on a dress rehearsal in Times Square on Friday the 13th [13 June 2008]. Joe Franklin took photos with the actresses and you can see the pictures on some earlier posts. When he hosted his TV show "Memory Lane," Joe invited Mae West to be his guest half-a-dozen times and recounted some of her naughty quips.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • A Hollywood fancy "Male Harem" will return Mae West's name to lights.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: "The popularity of Mae West will continue just as long as Mae West wants it to.  I never let anything stop me, once I set my heart on it. I've never had a wishbone where my backbone should be."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • Some United Press columnists mentioned the "visual bon-bon" Mae West.
• • The United  States Army will throw an infantry battalion at Win this summer. The troops, along with such other visual bon-bons as Kim Novak, Mae West, and Elvis Presley, have been lined up for future assignments on NBC-TV's upcoming Steve Allen show, "The Allen Hour." ...

• • The Mae West Blog was started nine years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2935th 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.
