It is August 17th which call Mae West Day.
She was born on August 17, 1893. She was a star on Broadway before she became a movie star at 40 years old.
She is one of my favorite classic movie stars. She is what I have called her before: brassy and sassy. How could she not coming from Brooklyn?
If you go through Swan of Dreamers, I have written many posts about Mae. This is one birthday post I wrote two years ago with favorite quotes from her autobiography.
I love this picture from Catherine Was Great that she starred on Broadway. I wish that it had been filmed, I would have loved to see this.
I adore that Mae wrote all her films and plays! That is remarkable then and now. She said she wrote for women;she knew they were audience!
Happy Birthday, Mae. You are still much loved!!
