You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.    Mae West

Mae West (born Mary Jane West; August 17, 1893 – November 22, 1980) was an American stage and film actress, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned over seven decades. She was known for her breezy sexual independence, and her lighthearted bawdy double entendres, often delivered in a husky contralto voice. She was active in vaudeville and on stage in New York City before moving to Los Angeles to begin a career in the film industry.

Also the lady’s name was used to denote a certian type of life jacket in WW2.

“From the name of the American film actress Mary Jane ‘Mae’ West (1892-1980), renowned for her generous bust, the informal noun Mae West (plural Mae Wests) denotes an inflatable life jacket, originally as issued to Royal Air Force aviators during the Second World War.”
