West believed in ‘a single standard for men and women’ (Weintraub 1967: 16). English writer Hugh Walpole wrote, ‘Only Charlie Chaplin and Mae West in Hollywood dare to directly attack with their mockery the fraying morals and manners of a dreary world’ (West 1959). Mae West created female characters that called the shots in business – as well as in relationships. Her leading female characters were not passive, they were, in West’s words, ‘the kind of dame that always asks for more than she expects to get – and then gets more than she asked for’ (Weintraub 1967: 16) Â�Middle-Â�aged and lustful, her female characters were embraced by the audience but considered ‘filthy’ and ‘dangerous’ by the censors.

Thus, amateur film writing can and should be evaluated for its role in production, where it had direct and indirect influences on film form and content, rather than simply as a popular hobby or pastime that served only as a corollary amusement for film fans. These writers and their work furthermore played symbolic roles in industry discourse, often as a counterweight to the demands of potentially unruly productive labour.
