As the first "blonde bombshell," Mae West reigned supreme and changed the nation's view of women, sex and race - on stage, in films, on radio and television. Her bawdy humor challenged taboos of the day and she braved jail for her so-called "pornographic" plays. When censorship issues drove her from films, she toured in stage shows that became classic. Dom DeLouise narrates the program; clips are from Night After Night, She Done Him Wrong, I'm No Angel, Belle of the Nineties, Klondike Annie, Go West Young Man, Every Day's a Holiday and My Little Chickadee. In addition to rare home movies and archival footage, Anthony Quinn, Rex Reed and Robert Wise provide interviews.
