Trivia: Mae West
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: While she does say something along the lines of, "Come up and see me sometime," in her films, the wording is somewhat different. Also, her "Or are you just happy to see me?" line is only said once in her old films.
  • Memetic Mutation: References and caricatures of Mae West were ridiculously common in her heydey, particularly in cartoons of the 1930s. One of the most noted examples is Disney's Silly Symphonies short "Who Killed Cock Robin?", which so effectively caricatured her beyond the level of a Shallow Parody that she herself lauded the parody, according to the account of The Illusion of Life.
  • Short-Lived Big Impact: For such an iconic star, she has a surprisingly small filmography.
  • What Could Have Been: Animator Jack Kinney's biography mentioned that he and Mae planned a cartoon series about her called Pretty Mae, which never got off the ground.
