MAE WEST
Black and white publicity photograph of an advertisement promoting Mae West in person as "Catherine Was Great".
Advertisement signed: "Mae West". B/w, 8x10. Photo of an advertisement promoting Mae West in person as "Catherine Was Great". Image of West (b/w, 5¾x5½) printed above a series of critical reviews of her in the role. West starred in Catherine Was Great on Broadway (1944-1945). She wished to make a movie of it but, regrettably, the studios demurred. The vivacious, risqué Mae West (1892-1980) had such success portraying Lil in the play's first production at New York's Royale Theatre that she became the acknowledged queen of camp with her sexual innuendoes and double entendres. Her nearly single-handed sexual revolution took Hollywood by surprise in the early 1930s, when West starred in such films as Night After Night (1932) and She Done Him Wrong (1933), the film version of Diamond Lil, in which she uttered her famous line, "Come up and see me sometime" (to co-star Cary Grant). Although she made only 12 films, most of them have become classic comedy hits, including Klondike Annie (1936) and My Little Chickadee (1940), which co-starred the inimitable W.C. Fields. The talented lady from Brooklyn also directed some of her plays, such as Drag (1927), and wrote most of her own nightclub material and scripts. Fine condition.
