Mae West: Lucky Watts

On Friday, 4 December 1936 MAE WEST was on page 1 along with her two racehorses:  Art Dillon and Lucky Watts.
• • "Horse Races Here Next Sunday" • •
• • Mae West, screen actress, has two favored horses competing in the Sunday races. The famous film star’s speedsters, Art Dillon and Lucky Watts will have W. E. Bakeoff driving them for a winning place at the Palm Springs Field Club. Considerable interest has been shown among local Palm Springs men, many of whom plan to purchase or lease some of the fine horses entered here Sunday so they will race under their colors.

• • On Sunday, 4 December 1932 • •
• • It's more than amusing that Billy Sunday chose a Sunday to pay a visit to Mae West with his plain-faced wife. On 4 December 1932, Mr. and Mrs. Sunday posed for several cheeky photographs on the set of "She Done Him Wrong." In one shot, Billy is pretending to smash the set's saloon with a chair. Too funny.
• • On Monday, 4 December 1933 • •
• • Motion Picture Herald ran an article on Mae West, who had been robbed, in the issue dated for Monday, 4 December 1933.
• • On Monday, 4 December 1978 • •
• • Hollywood icon Mae West, still surrounded by young and handsome men and gorgeous bodybuilders, piqued the interest of the editors of People Magazine. They did a piece on "Sextette" in the issue dated for Monday, 4 December 1978.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • Presenting "Go West Young Man" — — and make hey-hey while Mae shines!
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said:  "It's what they see in my eyes that counts."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • A San Francisco nightspot mentioned Mae West.
• • The Golden Gate Night Club went big time recently when they offered “Female Impersonators.”  There were four of them and they were billed under the names of popular stage and screen stars. They were Bronze Mae West, Peaches Browning, Miss California, Miss Texas, Miss Petite, etc.  
• • The unique makeup and different personalities, together with clever showmanship, packed in the paying customers and the manager were all smiles.  . . .
