Mae West: How to Misbehave

On Thursday, 14 June 1934 the Australian fans of MAE WEST were reading this news.

• • "She Done Him Wrong," the novel based on Miss West's first Paramount picture, and the one which skyrocketed her to film fame, already is one of the world's best sellers. Nearly a million copies have been sold.
• • Now Mae West is at work on a new book, "How to Misbehave," and she is contemplating turning into a novel her original screen story, 'I'm No Angel.' If she finds time, it is expected that she also will write a novel based on her next Paramount screen drama of the Naughty Nineties, "It's No Sin."
