Good. Put her on.

Mr. Clayton?

I've been thinking over

everything you said and...

I've made my decision.

Good. I'm glad you made up

your mind quickly.

I'm very quick in a slow way.

You see I can't discuss it over the phone.

It's got a lot of angles to it.

You better come up and see me.

I'll be glad to.

In fact, I'll come over right away

if it's convenient for you.

Most convenient.

I'll tell you this much...

you're gonna like what I got in mind.

I'll be ready.


- Hello, honey.

- Good evening, Miss Tira.

If anyone should call, I'm indisposed.

Yes, ma'am.

You know what I mean, don't you?

Yes, ma'am.

Come here, dear.

I haven't had you alone all evening

with all those people.

My public.

Let me take a good look at you.

You were wonderful tonight.

I'm always wonderful at night.

Yes, but tonight you were especially good.

When I'm good, I'm very good.

But when I'm bad...

I'm better.

Don't go away, I'll be right back.

No one loves me

like that New York man

You must've had a good time,

you seem so happy.

If I wasn't, you'd know it.

Get me another gown, Beulah.

I've danced this one around all evening.

I gotta give it a rest.

Yes, ma'am. Which one?

- That lucky one.

- Yes, ma'am.

- That guy's got rhythm, eh?

- Yes, I know what you means.

Bring out a couple of drinks

and then you two dames can retire.

- Yes, ma'am.

- Yes, ma'am.

Open up that door.

Here goes my big moment.

Don't stop, honey, you put me in the mood.

It's good to be here alone with you, dear.

I kind of like it, too.

The only thing I've got to be jealous.

- Of course, if I could only trust you.

- You can, hundreds have.

Do you know I'm mad about you?

I could tell you'd be, the first time I saw you.

Say, I must be transparent.

Honey, you're just wrapped in cellophane.

Mae West

Mary Jane "Mae" West (August 17, 1893 – November 22, 1980) was an American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedian, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned seven decades, known for her lighthearted bawdy double entendres and breezy sexual independence. West was active in vaudeville and on the stage in New York City before moving to Hollywood to become a comedian, actress and writer in the motion picture industry, as well as appearing on radio and television. The American Film Institute named her 15th among the greatest female stars of classic American cinema. Often using a husky contralto voice, West was one of the more controversial movie stars of her day and encountered many problems, especially censorship. She bucked the system, making comedy out of conventional mores, and the Depression-era audience admired her for it. When her cinematic career ended, she wrote books and plays and continued to perform in Las Vegas, in the United Kingdom, on radio and television and to record rock and roll albums. She was once asked about the various efforts to impede her career, to which she replied: "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." more…
