She Always Knew How
Mae West
Charlotte Chandler - 2009-02-10
Goodreads Rating
A Hollywood icon ahead of her time, Mae West was more than just a sex symbol. Convicted of obscenity for her scandalous play, Sex, she emerged from prison a star and went on to become the number one box-office attraction in the 1930s. Behind her notorious one-liners was a deep desire to see women treated equally with men, making her a pioneer for sexual equality during a time when it was not yet mainstream. Author Charlotte Chandler draws from extensive interviews with Mae herself, fellow actors, and directors to offer insight into the fascinating life of this iconic star.
