Mae West must be one of those actresses that you either really love or don't like at all. I've heard people say that they thought she was great. I had never watched any of her movies until about a month ago when TCM showed one, "My Little Chickadee", I think it was. I started watching it because of W.C Fields. I always thought he was an "Ok" actor. I only made it through about half of the movie because I could hardly stand watching Mae West. I thought she was terrible. I thought maybe it was just that particular roll, so I gave her another look in "I'm No Angel". She's no better in it than she was in "...Chickadee". I don't see what the big fuss was with her. Her acting is bad, her singing is terrible, her voice is annoying, she was overweight (compared to other actresses), and her "sexy" walk looked more like she needed a hip replacement or at least a tube of Preperation H. I guess they all couldn't be Carol Landis', Bonita Granvilles, Myrna Loys, and Priscilla Lanes. I know some of you will agree with me and others will say that I'm totally wrong about her. It's just my 2¢ worth.
