Mae West was one of the first actresses to use her figure to lift her career and this photograph plays off this fact like no other in the world. An airline executive and pilot is seen giving West a look over as the reverse paper caption talks all about her streamlined figure that would make any aeronautical engineer, or any other man, excited! Dated from 1934 and taken on the set of her latest Paramount film, this is one of the most sexually charged images from the era we have ever handled! The photo really does show why West was so popular in an era of stick figure flappers from the roaring twenties!
