Or a jail

That could ever hold him

He's seven kinds

He's the wrong man

But he loves me right

He's the wrong man

But he loves me right

He's wanted in Tacoma

and Oklahoma


Charlie claims

He was put away

in Santa Fe

For robbin'JesseJames

There ain't a pal or a gal

That could ever hold him

He'd do you dirty

if he could

He's a bad man

But he loves so good

So keen, so mean

so tough, so rough

So good

Oh, swell.


Oh, do it.!

Hello, Cleo.

When it comes to you,

I'm dynamite.

Yes, and I'm your match.

You know, I been doing a lot

of thinking about you lately.

Must be awfully tired.

What are

they doing now?

If there was music,

I'd say they was dancing.


You know I always took

what I wanted.

I guess the boys

will give me the laugh,

but I want you so much,

I want to marry you.

Well, that's

darn white of you.

I mean it, honey.

I want to marry you.

Marriage? That will be

a new kind of racket for me.

I'm rich.

I'll give you everything.

Yes, everything I own:

my ranch, the whole works.

Certainly make

it sound attractive.

Then say you'll do it?

I'll tell you what I'll do.

I'll roll you whether

I do or I don't.

What do you say?

It's a go.

Ladies frst.

Oh, thank you.

Let me get this straight.

If I win, I don't marry you,

but I get that strip

of land on the Delta.

And if you lose,

you marry me.

Yes, and I get

everything you've got.

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…
