Mae West's Wit and Wisdom

By March 14, 2010

Follow me on:

Mae West was best known as a comedian and actress whose bawdy plays and movies were full of double entendres and attracted the attention of industry censors. Less well known is her role as writer in many productions. Her film career -- mainly at Paramount in the 1930s -- seemed to stop in 1943, but she returned in the 1970s for Myra Breckindridge, a cult classic. Today, Mae West and her spirit live on in the quotes from her life and characters -- even Warren Buffett has said about investing, "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful."
