Nice to know that she was far more than what you saw on stage or screen. I wonder how many people at the time knew who she really was

I wonder why you have not mentioned the fact that the life-saving jacket which is wrapped around the necks of the pilots is named ( appropriately) 'Mae West'!! What is the story behind this?
