I loved Mae West from the first minute I saw her — which was probably in one of her lesser movies, My Little Chickadee. At the time (the late 60s) there was a lot of interest in W.C. Fields, and this film was shown a lot. The pairing was indeed funny, if uneasy for the two of them, but at the time he was the admired iconoclast and she was basically just a sex symbol. That was admirable in its way; but no one realized what a complete original she was — or what a creative force.
