* 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.

* AuthorAppeal: Although she was only six years old when the decade ended, she seemed to have a thing for TheGayNineties. Four of her films take place then.

Starting off - like most stars in her time- in vaudeville she rapidly became notorious for her sexually risqué singing style. Her Broadway play, ''Sex'' (1927), caused so much scandal that the police arrested her and the entire cast. She barely spent a few days in jail while the press elevated her to national fame. Her next play, ''The Drag'' (1928) was never staged because the Society for the Prevention of Vice took offense of its homosexual themes.

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), ''Film/SheDoneHimWrong'' (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.

Fashion Designer Elsa Schiaperelli formed the bottle for her perfume, "Shocking", after Mae's curvaceous dress form; a reference to her own reaction at seeing the form after it was delivered for custom dressmaking. She is even featured on the cover of Music/TheBeatles ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' album.

* 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."
