Mae West, 1892-1980, skirted the delicate sensibilities of Hollywood censors with sexual innuendo and double entendre and her witty observations were as widely quoted as Ben Franklin bromides:Although she cultivated the image of the “tough broad,” West always conveyed a curious Victorian innocence coupled with a winking, self-effacing amusement at her own preposterous creation. Her popularity reached such peaks that sailors were inspired to name their inflatable life jackets after her overemphasized 43-inch “assets,” ensuring West a place, like no other actress to date, in Webster’s Dictionary.
