Haven't seen you here for more

than a month. Where have you been?

Here, there, and everywhere.

City's getting so big,

it takes time to get around it.

One of these days, we'll be walking

across a bridge to Long Island City.

Walking? We'll be riding over

in one of them horseless buggies.

I'm thinking of buying one of them

for me and Lou.

- By the way, Gus, how is she?

- She's in demand, I tell you, Flynn.

The Bowery Savings Bank

and Rupert's Brewery...

are fighting to use her pictures exclusive

on their New Year's calendars.

She sure is a handsome girl, Gus.

I wonder you don't get jealous,

all the men are so crazy about her.

I do get kind of mad at the attention

some of them show her.

But it ain't bad,

having a girl that all the men are after.

Shows I must be pretty good, eh, Flynn?

Take a look at that.

Just bought it for her. Ain't that a pip?

Big as a nickel.

What would you do if somebody tried

to take her away from you?

Probably, nothing...

to her.

Say, the flies here are terrible.

You pick out the ones you don't like

and I'll kill them for you.

- Someone wants to talk to you in the office.

- All right, Spider.

Excuse me, Dan.


Lou is the swellest girl

that ever came down the Bowery.

You fellas don't know nothing about Lou.

But I do.

Just before the battle, Mother

- When did you get in, Rita?

- Two days ago.

But I did not come here direct,

you understand.

Good girl, Rita. Take no chances.

We are very discreet, Serge and me.

Gus, you must like Serge.

He's been a most valuable assistant.

- Sure you can trust him?

- You know Rita.

We've got to be especially careful.

I can't take chances of having headquarters

watching around this way.

- They will find nothing.

- No, not if we stay awake.

But don't forget. No talking to anyone.

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…
