Mae West: Honey Pie Paul

Sir Paul McCartney wrote music that was used in "Sextette" starring MAE WEST.
• • "Honey Pie" was co-written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney [Maclen Music, Inc.].  Dom DeLuise performed their song in the motion picture "Sextette."

• • "You'd have thought that a favorite bootlegger had come back from Atlanta," wrote drama critic Robert Garland in the New York Evening Telegram in his review of "Diamond Lil" published on 5 April 1928. "Mae West makes Miss Ethel Barrymore look like the late lamented Bert Savoy."
• • Born on 15 August 1879, actress Ethel Barrymore died in the month of June — — on Thursday, 18 June 1959. Praised for her work on the stage, Ethel was an Academy Award-winning screen actress and, of course, a member of the famous Barrymore family.
