Mae West looked like the gangster's moll to top them all
"Night After Night" was an otherwise unmemorable George Raft opus of the early 1930's... The scene was the entrance to a nightspot...
Enter Mae West, magnificently dripping in so much jewelery it must have given the lighting cameraman several heart attacks in his attempts to "damp it down" so that it didn't "flash up the bottle" as she moved
Cries the hat-check girl: "Goodness, what beautiful diamonds!"
Mae West: "Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie."
Gangsters' molls... they are part of the legend of the mobster movie And in "Night After Night" it was never openly established just what kind of a dame Mae West was playing, but with all those rocks she looked like the gangster's moll to top them all
