* ICanChangeMyBeloved: Mae was not fond of this trope. As she put it, "Don't marry a man to reform him. That's what reform schools are for."

* DuelingStarsMovie: Creator/WCFields and Mae West were co-stars in ''My Little Chickadee'' (1941). We can only sigh at two such notoriously filthy comedians only being able to work together in an era where their material had to be severely curtailed on film.

* BadassBoast: Most of what she said, including the quote on top of this page.

* CoolOldLady: Mae was already in her forties when her movie career took off. Even in old age she was still very sexually active and kept totally self-confident and witty about herself.

* ReallyGetsAround: Her characters were known for this.

By the time she became a movie star she was already 38 years old, but became an overnight success. Classic films like ''Night After Night'' (1932), ''She Done Him Wrong'' (1933), ''I'm No Angel'' (1933), ''Klondike Annie'' (1936) and ''My Little Chickadee'' (1940) featured West intimidating her co-actors with her witty and sexually risqué wisecracks and double entendres. She played the same part when appearing on radio shows. Creator/SalvadorDali designed a wood and satin sofa after her lips and during World War II Allied aircrew units called their life preserver jackets "Mae West", due to its resemblance to her bosom. She is even featured on the cover of Music/TheBeatles ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' album.

* HiddenDepths: Contrary to the public image she liked to present, Mae tended to avoid glitzy nightlife and elaborate premieres (except for her own productions), preferring to stay at home and apply herself diligently to mastering the writer's craft through a long, painstaking process of trial and error, endlessly drafting and redrafting notions and themes for her plays.

Later in life Mae West tried her best to keep her status as former sex symbol, despite looking nothing like it anymore. She recorded a few rock 'n' roll albums and even appeared in a few {{Cult Classic}}s like ''MyraBreckinridge'' (1970) and starred and wrote the very campy ''{{Film/Sextette}}'' (1978).

* DoubleEntendre
to:
* DoubleEntendreDoubleEntendre: West was a master of giving seemingly innocuous phrases a suggestive spin, which allowed her to beat at least indecency charge. The lines themselves were not salacious, it was all in the delivery.
