Mae West signs a check to pay Beverly West $125.00.
Check signed: "Mae West", 8x3. Endorsed:"Beverly West". Los Angeles, California, 1980 January 22. Drawn on her personal account at the United California Bank, made payable to Beverly West for $125.00. Typed memo: "Maintenance & care of the ranch." 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. Usual bank stamps. Bank stamp on verso shows through faintly at signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
