For his blog, Michael Musto has dug up a clip of Faye Dunaway playing Mae West from a 2002 flick THE CALLING. Her impersonation's not too good and although she does once give you that buck-toothed look which Mae sported in later years due to her face being yanked back so far that her mouth could no longer close, Faye doesn't really sink her teeth into Mae as she did Joan Crawford. For some rotten reason (Faye's reluctance to wear a wig, perhaps?) Faye West isn't even sporting the classic light blonde hair color that was Mae's trademark. But never mind that! Guess who's coming to dinner!


This clip is a must-see!
