      RINGO STARR IS ONE OF THE INTERVIEWEES IN THIS TRIUTE TO MISS WEST.  RINGO TALKED ABOUT WORKING WITH HER IN THIS MOVIE THAT ALSO STARRED KEITH MOON, ALICE COOPER, KEITH ALLISON, GEORGE HAMILTON, TONY CURTIS AND TIMOTHY DALTON (WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY BEFORE 007).  ALSO REGARDING HER LINES FROM THE MOVIE WHEN FILIMING HIS SCENES WITH HER.

      ANY OF COURSE, SHE WAS ON THE COVER OF A "...LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND..." WHICH AT FIRST, REFUSED! 

      "WHAT WOULD I BE DOING IN A LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND?"  Ummmm.....  WELL...RINGO'S AND HIS BAND MATES WROTE HER A PERSONAL LETTER AND SHE CHANGED HER MIND.  PEPPERCOVER

      'COM'ON UP AND SEE HER SOMETIMES...."

        That had to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen! 😂

          I remember seeing "Sextette" when it first came out and rather enjoyed it. Yes, it did require a little whilling suspension of disbelief, but it was fun. I have no idea if I would feel the same now.

            "Myra Breckinridge" (Fox 1970) Rated X, based on the Gore Vidal book starring Raquel Welch as Myra was not a big hit either.   But Mae was great and beautiful.

            "Hi Cowboy.  How tall are ya without your horse?"

            "Well, ma'am I'm six feet, seven inches"

            "Well, nevermind about the six feet.  Let's talk about the seven inches."

            The movie also starred Rex Reed (yeah, him), John Huston, Farah Fawcett (no Majors at that time), John Caradine and a mustache-less Tom Seleck.

            Featuring music from Otis Redding, John Phillips, The Bergmans & Sammy Fain, Frank Loesser (no McCartney publishing), Harry Warren and Mack Gordon.
