Born in a working-class section of Brooklyn, she became a show-business giant, a personality so distinctive she transformed forever the way women and sex would be presented on stage, in films, radio, TV and cabarets around the world. Her name was Mae West and she was the first and the most outrageous of all "blonde bombshells." Included in this retrospective are clips from such films as Night After Night, She Done Him Wrong, I'm No Angel, Belle of the Nineties, Klondike Annie, Go West Young Man, Every Day's a Holiday, and the evergreen My Little Chickadee. Also included are period archival footage, rare home movies, vintage stills, and interviews with Anthony Quinn, Robert Osborne, Rex Reed, and others.
