Mae West's Secret Italian Husband

Presented by LindaAnn LoSchiavo

When they met in 1913, he was a vaudeville headliner, an accordionist and a composer who recorded for the Columbia label, a star who earned $600 a week. She was a hopeful 19-year-old, a singing comedienne, who opened for larger acts. They fell in love, married, and toured vaudeville together. This is the untold story of Guido Deiro (1886-1950), born in Salto Canavese, Italy, and Mae West (1893-1980), born in Brooklyn, NY, who became his second wife and, eventually, a star on Broadway and in Hollywood motion pictures.

This presentation will feature the music Guido Deiro composed for the Broadway show “Kismet” along with some of his other pieces and clips of Guido Deiro performing in 1928.

The talk ends with a free sampling of imported Italian cookies to celebrate the birthday of Mae West (1893) and an exciting raffle.
