[Lively instrumental music]

[Lively instrumental music continues]

[Slow instrumental music]

Tell me, is this white woman

who lives here married to Chan Lo?

- I don't know.

- I hear he is madly jealous of her.

And he makes every white man

keep a respectable distance.

But I am not respectable.

[All laughing]

It's refreshingly scandalous.

Her name is Rose Carlton,

better known as The San Francisco Doll.

That's fine. I like dolls.

But this is a different kind of a doll.

Look at that figurine there.

As rare as the dodo.

MAN 1:
I wonder if it's for sale.

MAN 2:
Everything has its price.

All my treasures except one,

may be purchased at a price.

Your Excellency.

Your Exalted Excellencies,

beautiful ladies.

Now see what I have recently added

to my collection.

MAN 1:
By Jove, what a stunner.

Isn't it wicked looking?

Gives one the creeps.

Magnificent. What exquisite craftsmanship.

- It must be very old.

- It is indeed, sir.

There is a legend attached to this Malay kris.

Through centuries, its history tells...

it pierced many times

the hearts of beautiful ladies...

who were unfaithful to the trust

imposed in them by their lords.

Prince, when are we to have

the pleasure of meeting...

My pearl of lotus flower?

If you'll all be so good as to excuse me...

I shall see.

[Doll playing a slow tune]

[Singing] I'm an occidental woman

In an oriental mood for love

And I feel a thrill of China

When I see a yellow Buddha moon above

And when it weaves

its magic spell around me

Saying love is all I'm dreaming of

I'm an occidental woman

In an oriental mood for love

I'm an occidental woman

In an oriental mood for love

And I feel a thrill of China

When I see a yellow Buddha moon above

And when it weaves

its magic spell around me

Saying love is all I'm dreaming of

I'm an occidental woman

In an oriental mood for love

Languor becomes you, my beautiful one.

But I trust you're not too weary...

as many persons

are gnawed by anxiety to see you.

So they want to see me.

I'm tired of being showed off,

like one of your curios.

Am I not proud of you, my pearl of pearls?

This pearl of pearls is getting unstrung.

You grow impatient with me?

You stifle me.

That is unkind.

I have provided for your comfort,

lavished luxury upon you.

I've had enough of your fancy speeches.

I'm saturated with them.

My only wish has been for your happiness,

white doll.

I know you're lying.

You consume me with unjust words.

I want you to be happy.

Why do you keep me

from having men friends of my own race?

Because it is written:

"There are two perfectly good men.

"One dead, the other unborn."

Which one are you?

We will talk about these things later.

It is rude to keep our guests waiting.

Do a dance or show them some card tricks.

I'll be down in a minute.

Very well.

Shall I say they may anticipate

your presence almost immediately?

You never can say anything the short way,

can you?

No, my beautiful.

[Soft Chinese music playing]

I am afraid for you.

Chan Lo would kill you

before he lets you go.

I know, but I've got to take that chance.

I'm tired of being a prisoner.

You think I want to stay here...

when they're picking up gold

right off the streets in Alaska?

I'm going to join up with that gold rush

and nobody's gonna stop me.

Maybe you take Fah Wong with you.

Sure, I'll take you along.

I'll drop you off at Seattle.

You can see that sweetheart of yours

you've been talking so much about.

How does that sound?

Oh, lovely flower,

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…
