Mae West: Orange Grove

On  Saturday, 28 July 1934, MAE WEST's fan base in New Zealand was excited to read this. This is Part 1 of two excerpts.
• • Mae West's Plans • •
• • Films and  Holidays • •
• • Successful Church Protest • •
• • Although Mae West has not yet completed her next picture, "It's No Sin" (re-titled from "It Ain't No Sin") she is far ahead in plans for future films.
 • • Her next will be "The Queen of Sheba," from a story by David Boehm, and a few days ago her studio purchased on her recommendation a new type of story for her. This is the story of an American actress who, during a triumphal tour of Europe, almost wins a kingdom from a monarch. Miss West will again write the screenplay, as she has done for all her pictures. Meanwhile "It's No Sin" is rapidly nearing completion.  When it is finished, Miss West will go for a short rest to her orange grove, which she recently purchased.
• • With Papal Approval • •  . . .
• • To be concluded tomorrow.

• • Thank you for reading, sending questions, and posting comments during these past eleven years. Not long ago, we entertained 3,497 visitors. And we reached a milestone recently when we completed 3,700 blog posts. Wow!   
• • By the Numbers • •
• • The Mae West Blog was started thirteen years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 3761st 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.
