Yoou have no doubt already been corrected that the President of Paramount
was ADOLPH Zukor, and you doubtless further know how much West admired him,
being the only man whose portrait graced her piano.

> - June 20, 1930: Mae West arrived in Pasadena or Los Angeles, and
> held a press conference to announce her arrival in Hollywood. She was there
> to shoot her first movie role, Night After Night, with George Raft. I know

> hot stuff / saving Paramount from bankruptcy
> - Anything with Duke Ellington (musician), George Zukor
> (Paramount president), George Raft (actor) or Marlene Dietrich (actress)
> talking about working with Mae West.
> - Anything with Walter Winchell, Rona Barrett or Jimmie Fidler,
> or other radio gossip commentators commenting on Mae West
