Mae West: A-Mae-Zing Toast

MAE WEST is bejeweled and ready to party hearty. Are you? Smile and enjoy it all.
• • On Saturday, 31 December 1927 at Club Deauville • •
• • Mae West spent New Year's Eve on Saturday night, 31 December 1927, entertaining a crowd.
• • The nonfiction book "The Year the World Went Mad" is exclusively focused on the most vibrant events and the most fascinating individuals of 1927. Author Allen Churchill wrote: "Another New York night club listed a gala unveiling for New Year's Eve. This was Mae West's Club Deauville, at Park Avenue and Fifty-ninth Street. Here a New Year's Eve Supper was advertised for a cover charge of ten dollars. Together with this went "A Program of Distinctive and Unique Entertainment Conceived and Directed by the Distinguished Star in Person." ... How we wish we knew more.

• • Wishing all of our readers a very happy and safe and wonderful New Year's Eve.
• • Around the World with Mae West • •
• • Did you know you could find Mae West in Alaska? There is a location popular with fishermen called Mae West Lake in Valdez-Cordova.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • Her take-off on Eva Tanguay, the unrestrained, hippy favorite of soldiers, sailors, college boys and tired business men of that day, invariably won her the greatest applause. It practically gave Mae West her start in show business.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: "Lady Godiva was the greatest gambler. She put everything she had on a horse."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • The Guardian mentioned Mae West.
• • Chris Petit wrote:  Compared to Brando, Beatty or Granger, Mae West was a paragon of the Protestant work ethic. Few worked harder in Hollywood. Her famous sexual innuendo and throwaway style were the products of much rewriting and rehearsal. She remains a theatrical, and rather Victorian, figure and the film career was limited by censorship battles and studio politics . . .

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.
