24x30 montage of photographs signed by America's first sex symbol, Mae West.
Poster signed: "Sin-cerely/Mae West". Color, 24x30, matted to an overall size of 26½x37. A montage of Mae West as Diamond Lil surrounded by six images of her in various roles. Two silver-colored metal plaques (5x3 each) inset below poster contain biographical information on West. Mae West (1892-1980) was America's first sex symbol. For most of her films, she wrote her own lines and collaborated on the scripts. Her witticisms and catch-phrases soon entered the speech of mainstream America. Having debuted onscreen in 1932 in Night After Night, West was the highest-paid woman in the U.S. by 1935. With a reputation as a provocative sexual figure, she was watched carefully by the censors and often clashed with them. Still, West managed to inject much sexuality into her films through innuendo and double entendre such as, to a young man, "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?" and, when told by another young man: "I'm six feet and seven inches, ma'am," she said, "Let's forget about your six feet and talk about your seven inches." Mat slightly worn at edges. Poster in fine condition. Matted in the Gallery of History style, suitable for framing.
