"Without doubt, one of the most unique fabrications of the twentieth century was the show business phenomenon known as Mae West. She was assertive in an age when women were supposed to be submissive; she was openly bawdy when decorum was the order of the day. With her buxom hour-glass figure and her lascivious frame of reference, she shocked, intrigued, captivated, and amused many generations of fans. For over seven decades, she was an active performer, shrewdly promoting what she knew and understood best--Miss Mae West." --James Robert Parish and Michael R. Pitts ("Hollywood Songsters" 1991)

"She's a plumbers idea of Cleopatra!" --quote attributed to W C Fields
