Mae West

1892- 1980

Comedian

The bawdy personality and comic persona of Mae West made her a star in the Hollywood of the 1930's with her appearance in films such as Night After Night, She Done Him Wrong, and My Little Chickadee.

Though she seemed to epitomize aggressive vulgarity, audiences loved her. It was only the changing tide of Hollywood movie mores that halted her movie career in 1939.

Nevertheless, Mae West remained an undeniable American original and found renewed fame in the decade and a half before her death.
