Famous for her bawdy double entendres, West made a name for herself in vaudeville and on the legitimate stage in New York before moving to Hollywood to become renowned as a comedienne, actress, and writer in the motion picture industry.
One of the most controversial stars of her day, West encountered many obstacles, including early censorship and sexism. Perhaps her most famous quote is: "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"
When her movie career ended, she continued to perform on stage, in Las Vegas, in England, on radio and television, and recorded Rock and Roll albums.
