Q. We hear that a new movie is being planned on the life of Mae West. Who do you think is sexy enough to play her? â€” G.H.
A. Hollywood, sexually forthright these days, has plenty of actresses who can generate her on screen. But do they have that special off-hand humor of the late La West? That’s the question.
One famous director I know is seriously preparing Mae’s life story for the screen. He disclosed to me an interesting choice for the lead â€” none other than Bette Midler.
The Divine One hasn’t had much luck making movies. But she has the same kind of spunk and sexy humor that West so pleasurably displayed. We’ll see.
