Mae West: Stanford Theatre

MAE WEST was delighting her California fans in early February.       
• • On Tuesday, 7  February 1933, the Stanford Theatre was showing "She Done Him Wrong," a Paramount Picture.
• • The text announced: Now playing "Diamond Lil" herself — — Mae West, stated the bold ad leading the entertainment column.  "Lawyer Man" was the second feature.
• • Source:  The Stanford Daily; published on Tuesday,  7 February 1933.  
• • On Monday, 6 February 1928 • •
• • Mae West mailed her manuscript for "Diamond Lil" to the Library of Congress from the Harding Hotel, West 54th Street, New York, NY. The date of her Washington, DC copyright registration is Monday, 6 February 1928. The play opened on Broadway in April 1928.
• • On Friday, 6 February 2004 • •
• • An article about the full-length play "Courting Mae West" was written by Max Gross and was published in New York City in The Forward on 6 February 2004.
• • On Friday, 6 February 2009 • •
• • On Friday, 6 February 2009, a sparkling new print of "I'm No Angel" opened the 1930s series "Breadlines and Champagne," which was scheduled to run from Friday February 6th through March 5, 2009 at the Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, New York, NY 10014. Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks played a medley of 1930s tunes live on stage and ushers handed out chunks of bread. How delightful to be part of this experience. Every seat was taken in this wonderful NYC movie house in Mae's hometown.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • Zola's Nana, like Mae West, is a song and dance lady.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said:  "When Tennessee Williams received an award as our greatest playwright, he said, "I'm not the greatest playwright, Mae West is." He did use some of my ideas."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • The Columbia Daily Spectator in NYC mentioned Mae West.
• • Glenn S. Dunbar wrote:  The boys on the track squad might be permitted to select their own mascot. Personally, I think Mae West would bring the most gratifying results. But if they like Garbo better, all right.  . . .

• • The Mae West Blog celebrates its 10th anniversary • •    
• • Thank you for reading, sending questions, and posting comments during this past decade. The other day we entertained 1,430 visitors. We reached a milestone this week: 3,100 posts. Wow! 
• • By the Numbers • • 
• • The Mae West Blog was started ten years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 3109th 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.
