I remember liking Ann Jillian’s performance as Mae West in this made-for-TV bio, but except for Piper Laurie who played Mae’s mother I don’t remember much else about it. Glad it’s here to see again, though. Mae West wasn’t pleased with it. She cited the early scenes in the carnival, “I never threw it at ’em.”
