    One thought on “Goodness Had Nothing To Do With It”

    1. A fantastic first person narrative about the early part of Ms West s career Her signature one liners and frank conversation about her life are the stuff of legend Her ability and willingness to take on the censorship of her early work is amazing I really appreciated learning about her vaudeville beginnings Her comedy and sensitivity to her audience s appetites made her a success both on stage and behind the curtain But it s her open and candid treatment of taboo topics is what put her ahead of [...]

    2. I had a sense that Mae West made up most everything in this autobiography for entertainment value.Perfect With color and flare, she describes her life s achievements And achieve she did Her success in movies saved Paramount Pictures after the Great Depression, and she was the greatest woman wit of the twentieth century and possibly the millennium Imagine Kim Kardashian with something to say, and a creative fire that never dimmed Mae West wrote her own dialog or carefully stole it She performed o [...]

    3. Mae West was a star of the stage who successfully transitioned to films Her appearances in My Little Chickadee, She Done Him Wrong, and I m No Angel are unforgettable and entertaining Her uber sexual personality and wry delivery of clever dialogue have inspired characatures for decades This is her story, written in 1959 and obviously meant to boost a naturally diminishing career While she is frank about her many love affairs, the storytelling is somewhat sanitized by the constrants of the era It [...]

    4. 4 STARS This autobiography traces Mae West s indulged Brooklyn childhood, through vaudeville success, a stage career which landed her in jail for the outspokenness of her lines, to spectacular Hollywood stardom Witty and honest, she remained in control of her life, her career and her many, many loves From I picked this up at a local book store for 2 and it was than worth the price A great memoir and as honest as one can be Mae West is cheeky and bold.

    5. Mae West should be every woman s idol Though the prose isn t perfect at every turn, if you want to learn anything about the amazingly prolific, talented, and self assured Mae West, this is a fun and revealing read I learned a lot from her.

    6. I never knew much about Mae West so this landed randomly on my list but WOW am I so glad I read it The writing style is so engaging and kitschy, much like West herself She has such a unique voice, and especially unique experiences for the time in which she lived West would be today s feminists dreamchild there has been so much talk about changing Hollywood, and West has already solved that problem There are no parts you like Simple prove how much money you can make in films, then write and star [...]

    7. Mae West has got to be the most quotable woman ever read She is bold and unapologetic, and I loved her There is no bending of her will, which I found both abrasive and endearing I sometimes wondered how much was bluster, but it was fun to take it at face value.I was surprised to find her referencing the Kinsey Report, which was published about five years before this book Using his research as a premise, she s done nothing abnormal she just lived out the urges that Kinsey says are common but repr [...]

    8. This is another book I love reading She was such a larger than life iconic figure The book is her view of her life It brings her to life and gives a better understanding of the events in her life She is such a great inspiration to people as she appeared to have the self confidence all of us need I love reading this book over and over.

    9. Wise as well as witty I learned from this book to start lying about your age early While I enjoy Ms Wests rampant sense of her own financial value, and healthy interest in her box office returns, the bit where she advocates a project she is investing in, is a wee bit too mercenary and 80 years too late.

    10. I love this book and this woman She really was a pioneer for women and their personal freedom.She talks of the Brooklyn streets where she was raised and the backstage of Vaudville and Broadway when they were the peak of entertainment She is a wit and had control of her own world all the way into Vegas and Television.

    11. I enjoyed reading this book Mae West new what she wanted and would not be denied she was well ahead of he time in Hollywood.

    12. I thought this would be spicier I was hoping for Hollywood dishing However, she was an amazing woman She deserved a better autobiography.

    13. I m so sad to finish this book I SO enjoyed reading it Mae West was certainly a pioneer and a woman WAY ahead of her time It reads slightly as a brag book, but one I d say is well deserved.

    14. Wonderful, witty and wise, West was ahead of her time in her refusal to be hemmed in by social expectation She loved life and loved being a woman She loved men, but didn t them push her around The pattern in her affairs with the unfairer sex always seems to begin with mutual infatuation and end when the poor slob becomes a whimpering, besotted ninny that West cannot stand being around any Most importantly she was a great defender of human rights Today she is remembered as a slinking sex symbol, [...]

    15. She tells a great story But the writing can be clunky in places The pace is a bit sluggishtakes a while to get off the ground, though once it does the pros have a quick quip She will definitely have you laughing out loud at times throughout the book.

    16. I was always intrigue about Mae West being the bad girl What surprised me about Mae is that she wrote many screen plays and acted in them I would probably rather read an biography than an autobiography because it seemed so self indulging

    17. mae west does a great job at promoting mae west oh wait that s all she s ever done, really mildly entertaining.

    18. I love Mae West her writing, her movies, her plays but I was expecting than what this book offered.
