Great post, Peter. I was born too late to see much of Mae in the movies, but what I saw, I thought was great. I love #25!

Val said...

I don't think I've ever seen her in a film, but the fact that she's so well known, even today, says something for the impact she had on popular culture.

Lee said...

How wonderful it would be, to be so quick-witted! Dorothy Parker was also another lady of wicked wit.

Pamela said...

you left out my favorite mae west quote
I'll share it another time.

Dave said...

*LOL* Great one Peter!!!!

Cliff said...

She was a clever one wasn't she Peter. Thanks.

Jack K. said...



Mae had a wonderfully naughty sense of the world/herself/life, etc.

Christina said...

Mae West - great wit! LOL @ 2 1/2 inches!

Big Dave T said...

Many people don't rknow that Mae West was a great writer and humorist. She penned many of the screenplays of movies she starred in.

Vickie said...

Mae West happens to be a favorite of mine---Thanks for sharing this Peter.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Aah, yes...Mae West the ultimate "broad". She was one in a million.

Jamie Dawn said...

#23 is her most famous quote, I think.

She was REALLY something, and very funny.

Jamie Dawn said...

I told my brother about Schapelle Corby, and we looked her up online while at our parents' house.
My brother had never heard of her case before, but he found it interesting and sad. It's funny how huge stories in one country don't make it to the major news programs of another.

Walker said...

I have seen a few movies with Mae West and have seen her on old interviews and read many of her Quotes.
She was a hell of a charactor and a very wise woman.
