Mae West: Lucky Recipient

Ever popular with those newspaper scribes, MAE WEST popped up in an essay about, yes, Xmas card themes:  "Greeting cards chronicle manners, customs, and events." Let's find out what the writer said.
• • The Daily Banner staff wrote: Personalities who were household words of their times often popped up in Christmas cards.
• • The Daily Banner staff explained: A typical card of 1934 offered five famous faces for the price of one. It showed the Duke of Windsor (then the Prince of Wales), Mussolini, Garbo, Chevalier, and Mae West all wishing the lucky recipient, seasonal greetings in their own particular style.  . . .

• • Photographs of Mae's Los Angeles apartment were featured in the Sunday edition of The Los Angeles Times on Sunday, 22 December 1935.
• • On Sunday, 22 December 1963 • •
• • "Mae West Will Guest" • •
• • Hollywood — — Mae West will make one of her rare television appearances when she is the guest star in an episode of Mister Ed, stated The Fresno Bee on Sunday, 22 December 1963.
• • On Monday, 22 December 2003 • •
• • Those who read The New York Times on Monday, 22 December 2003 and tried to do the daily crossword puzzle, saw this clue: "Mae West, for one."
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • No unanimity of opinion prevails at Paramount over releasing time on the Mae West picture.  George Schaefer said in Chicago the other day July 19 may be the date, conceding in the same breath that the dry cleaning may take longer.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said:  "Every lawyer should have stage experience, not to assist him in deceiving a jury but in convincing them that he is right."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • The Motion Picture Daily mentioned Mae West.
• • "Belle of the Nineties" is now in its second week at the Denham.
• • The latest Mae West film holds the house record at the Denham for money, close to $16,500, but her previous film, "I'm No Angel," still holds the house record for number of patrons. Prices were boosted recently from 15c, 25c, 35c, to 25c, 35c and 50c . . .

• • The Mae West Blog celebrates its 11th anniversary • •    
• • Thank you for reading, sending questions, and posting comments during these past eleven years. The other day we entertained 3,497 visitors. And we reached a milestone recently when we completed 3,300 blog posts. Wow! 
• • By the Numbers • • 
• • The Mae West Blog was started ten years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 3338th 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.
