Reseña del editor:

At Mae West's film debut her co-star, George Raft, remarked, "She stole everything but the cameras". Approaching fifty, this short, plump Brooklynite shot to international fame as an outrageous sex goddess, a role in which she triumphed to the end of her life. Yet, Mae's private life was at variance with her fame. Brought up in vaudeville she was as familiar with gangland as she was with the movie studios, but few penetrated her glittering facade, for there were many secrets Mae wanted well-hidden. Possessed of a voracious sexual appetite, had the truth been known, she would have been drummed out of Hollywood. As a playwright she was imprisoned for "corrupting the morals of youth". Overcoming this slur to become queen of the silver screen, and the highest paid woman in America, within ten films she was out on her ear, chief scapegoat of the moral decency brigade. Bowed but not beaten, Mae fought back hard. Packed with previously undisclosed material and unpublished photographs, this biography brings the legendary sex symbol to life.

Descripción Flamingo, 1992. Paperback. Condición: New. The legendary Mae West died in 1980, yet she is immortalized by glorious one-liners - "Wehn I'm good, I'm very good, when I'm bad, I'm better" and "It's not the men in my life, it's the life in my men" etc. In this revealing biography, Maurice Leonard brings the self-created myth of Mae West to life. He discloses how a mediocre vaudevillian performer, who socialized with mobsters and bootleggers, helped save Paramount in the 1930s. Her notorious image - she was once thrown in jail for 'corrupting the morals of youth' - was vigorously sustained throughout her career. Possessed of a voracious sexual appetite and a penchant for musclemen, she practised her belief in guilt-free sex for women. But despite being the ulitmate sensual icon, she was terrified of personal scandal. In private, reclusive and insecure, she nver smoked and rarely drank. Drawing on previously undislcosed material, Maurice Leonard brilliantly recreates Mae West's finest hours. Nº de ref. del artículo: 031567
