She was obviously very wise. Sort of the Oracle of Hollywood.

She rivals Yogi Berra, Oscar Wilde, W.C. Fields and Mark Twain for great quotes!

She was really, really awesome. I hope she doesn't kill you with brilliance!

Omnipotent Poobah: It is interesting that she only appeared in something like 13 movies, and yet has made such impact on popular culture. (Of course she was also on stage as well.)

Splotchy: Hey! That's Monkerstein's line!

Johnny Yen: From your list, she is certainly in good company. I agree. She has some of the funniest lines ever.

J.D.: Ouch! I don't think I am dead yet!

I LOVE Mae West. Following some of the terrible Supreme Court decisions recently, I was motivated to put a Mae West quote on my blog. It's the one where a judge asks if she is trying to show contempt for the court, and Mae responds: "No Judge, I'm doing my best to hide it."

Ha! That sounds like that quote would fit the whole administration!

Favorite Mae West story:

Guy approaches her at a party and says, a few sheets to the wind:

"Y'know...I'd like to fuck you."

She looks him up and down and replies:

"If you do...and I find out about it..."

Ha! I guess that she had a snappy comeback for every occasion.
