Description
The biographer of Alfred Hitchcock, Ingrid Bergman, Groucho Marx, and many other Hollywood favorites, Charlotte Chandler here draws on a series of interviews she conducted with Mae West just months before her death in 1980, and the warm rapport they developed is evident throughout this biography. In West, Chandler finds a proto-feminist—an actress, playwright, screenwriter, and iconic sex symbol of the 1930s who deliberately made herself notorious in her efforts to battle the double standard that permitted men to do things that women would be ruined for doing. Learning all she could about the business of filmmaking, she wrote some of Hollywood's most enduring one-liners ("When I'm good, I'm very good. When I'm bad, I'm better.") and, according to Adolph Zukor, single-handedly saved Paramount Studios in the Depression.
