Mae West: Loose Enough

On Saturday, 15 September 2012, a delightful pictorial published in a London newspaper mentioned MAE WEST along with several actresses who were marquee names.
• • Hollywood style: Now that's what we call glamour! • •
• • Sinty Stemp wrote:   Long before Hollywood made stars, there were stars who made Hollywood. And here’s how they did it…
• • Wearing a daring ensemble by Zelda Winn Valdes, Mae West says: "I like gowns that are tight enough to show I’m a woman but loose enough to show I’m a lady."
• • Note: Many Hollywood screen queens are featured. Have a look at this piece.

• • On Tuesday, 15 September 1931 • •
• • The article “Mae West Returns” was printed in The New York Sun on Tuesday, 15 September 1931.
• • The review "Play 'Constant Sinner' Opens" was seen in the New York American on the same date:  Tuesday, 15 September 1931.
• • On Thursday, 18 September 1980 • •
• • It was September when Mae West was in the hospital and not doing well.  On Thursday, 18 September 1980, the Hollywood icon suffered a second stroke, and this left her right side paralyzed.  Dreadful.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • For the wonderful film editing on "Belle of the Nineties," released in September 1934, we can thank LeRoy Stone.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: "Men, in fact, are generally regarded as my weakness. It is instinctive for a woman to want a man to protect her."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • A journalist in India mentioned Mae West in a recent column.
• • Writing for the publication Hindu Business Line, Mohan R. Lavi leads off with a quote from Mae West: The American actress Mae West once remarked “I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.” . . .
