Mae West Goes to Jail


I see that on this day in 1927 Mae West’s play “Sex” was declared obscene and she was sentenced to serve ten days in jail.

Ms West was an author, probably known for creating many of her own lines in the many films she starred it, but she also wrote eight plays. This was one, maybe, her first. I’m unclear on that.

For “Sex” she was specifically convicted for corrupting the morals of youth.

I am clear on that…
