Have you ever seen the stars

On a typical tropical night

Have you ever seen the stars

That would dance while guitars

Would invite

Romance in the night

Have you ever been kissed

On a typical tropical night

Have you ever been kissed

While two arms that insist

Hold you tight

What a thrilling night

In the dark a sigh is heard

Love needs no light

You can never say no

On a typical tropical night

You can never say no

'Cause your heart tells you so

And you're right

Always you think of her. I will not let

this Americano woman take you away from me.

You mean more to me

than anything in the worid.

I've hardly

known you but an hour!

You may kiss my hand, and

tomorrow, perhaps, you may kiss me.

Until tomorrow.

A millionaire planter

and an embassy officer.

Zara, you're doin'

pretty good for yourself.

I thought I told you to leave that key

the last time you were here.

You do not think you can

discard Rico so easily, do you?

If necessary, I'll have

to do it the hard way.

Rico, you're through,

through as an old tomato can.

Oh, that is it, huh? Well, I

am not going to give you up!

Now or ever.

Don't be stupid!

If you'll take my advice, you'll go back to

your wife while you're still in good condition.

That is fine advice after you have

spoiled me for all the other women.

You was spoiled

when I got you.

Women have pampered you all

your life. Rico, you're no good.

Besides, you lied to me.

You said you were single.

And I loathe liars. No man can

support a wife and me at the same time.

Someone's gonna get the short end of

the deal, and, honey, it's never me!

Where is that man?

That-That officer?

Why, he left. He had to leave

sometime. Oh, you sent him away?

No, he left under

his own power.

Look at me! Don't louse

me up. Give me a light.

Isn't she wonderful?


Listen, Rico, where I

come from they call this...

''pulling a fast one on you,

givin' you the business.''

Why don't you make yourself scarce?

I'm betterin' myself.

Very well, Chiquita.

Let us make an end-

An end for the two of us.

What do you mean?

If I cannot hold you in my arms any longer,

no one else will ever get the chance.

Well, why don't

you shoot?

Oh, you can't do it!

You know you can't.

Oh, what am I doing?

What am I doing?

That's what I'm trying to figure

out. Oh, my darling, I love you.

[ love you.!

Zara, who is this?

Who is this man?

Why, I've never seen

the man before in all my life.

Why, Zara!

Get outta here!

Very well. I will go.

Let me tell you something.

She will do the same thing to you

as she has done to me. Get out!

Zara, what was

that man doing here?


Philip, darling, I-

You haven't answered me.

Why did you come? I told you-

I love you. How can you

expect me to stay away?

Day after day I waited for you,

and when you didn't come, I-

Zara. Zara, darling!

Why do you stare at me like that?

Surely this man hadn't-


It's true, Philip.

I don't ask forgiveness.

I'm not worthy of it.

But when you're gone,

remember me kindly sometimes...

for just a brief moment...

when April comes around again with

its blue skies and sudden showers.

Remember that April woman

who drifted into your life...

as casually as the summer cloud

drifts over a green field...

and then drifts on again.

Now, go, Philip. Go!

Ladies and gentlemen, we have persuaded one of

the most glamorous personalities of the screen...

to come here so that you, in the

spirit that is characteristic of you,

may pay tribute in person to what you

have, heretofore, only seen on the screen.

I have the honor

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…
