Mae West (1893)

West was an American stage and movie comedienne who started her career in burlesque and vaudeville. In 1926, she began to write, produce, and star in her own Broadway plays, which were often replete with sexual innuendo. A master of the double entendre, she treated sex with broad humor in popular films such as I'm No Angel. As a result, she constantly battled the censorship of the motion picture Production Code. What was dubbed a "Mae West" during World War II? More...

Thanks TFD for acknowledging May West's Birthday today...one of my all time favorite actors who still lights up the screen. A woman before her time, yes, many sexual innuendos but not the garbage today where sex is really out there...now I don't even watch TV...an old movie and a good book is all I need.

Here are some of May West's quotes...too many to list...

“There are no good girls gone wrong - just bad girls found out.”
“I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.”
“Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.”
“When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better. ”
“I'm single because I was born that way.”
“Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.”
“A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.”
“It's not the men in your life that matters, it's the life in your men.”
“Marriage is a fine institution, but I'm not ready for an institution."
“All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.”
“Cultivate your curves - they may be dangerous but they won't be avoided.”
“I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.”
“Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.”
“I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.”
“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!”
“It is better to be looked over than overlooked.”
“I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.”
“Don't keep a man guessing too long - he's sure to find the answer somewhere else”
“Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly."
“Women like a man with a past, but they prefer a man with a present.”


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAY WEST!
