From Dr. Mysterian’s blog:
Joan Collins describes visiting the actress [Mae West] in the Seventies, a tale that surpasses the soiled Hollywood Gothicism of Sunset Boulevard for sheer ghoulishness. In Collins tale, West, then in her eighties, dressed in kabuki-styled makeup, a long blonde wig to cover a developing humpback, and rubber band wrapped around her face to give her a chin line, didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t deign to speak with the younger actress, instead sitting on a soiled white sofa, staring sideways at her in silence.
