Mae West: Making an Impression

Mae West always gets her guys (emphasis on the plural). And once she gets them, they stay. In her classic She Done Him Wrong, Lou (West) is en route to visit an ex in prison. Her companion on the visit questions whether her ex will listen to her, given that he’s probably “sore” at her for infidelity. She claims a visit from her will make him think he’s “on vacation.”

“Yeah, he’ll listen to you,” her companion admits.

“Who won’t?” says West. “Once I get ’em, they’re branded.”
