Mae West: Claremont at 12:30

On Friday, 3 June 2016, there's a rollicking MAE WEST event in Claremont, California.
• • Series overview:  This entertaining series takes a look at some of the stars of the most popular “vice” films — — the bad girl vamps and vixens who dominated the 1930s silver screen and never apologized for their independence, bringing compelling, dangerous, and titillating performances to audiences everywhere.
• • Event description: Join journalist and cultural film critic Stacy Davies for an afternoon of biographical stories, images, clips, and a feature film starring these scandalous ladies.
• • Mae West on  Friday, 3 June 2016, 12:30 — 2:30pm
• • See the Queen of the Sex Comedy in her first featured role in a film she wrote, cast, and produced herself, and that was nominated for Best Picture: "She Done Him Wrong" (1933).
• • Where: Alexander Hughes Community Center, 1700 Danbury Road, Claremont, CA 91711.
• • On Friday, 3 June 1911 in The Clipper • •
• • The New York Clipper (a.k.a. The Clipper) was a weekly entertainment newspaper published in New York City from 1853 to 1924.  It reviewed many forms of artistic endeavor from the circus to vaudeville to the legit. Two items in The Clipper, on 3 June 1911 and on 2 September 1911, covered "A Florida Enchantment." This touring show featured "a little French adventuress" played by Mae West and "young Goldberg" played by Frank Wallace, who became her husband in April 1911. The Clipper applauded their "coon shouting."  Mae sang a number "Tiger Love," backed by a burlesque chorus and also delighted the reviewer when she made "several changes down to full tights with good effect."  Woo-woo..
