Episode Summary

Mae West was a show-off--a sensational showgirl whose wit was as legendary as her contempt for the censors. But she also had a passion for the paranormal that saw her take part in séance after séance. Where better, then, to search for her spirit than in New York, the city where she made her name, earned her fortune, and was jailed for upsetting the authorities with her unashamedly brash stage play Sex? Our hunt for Mae takes us to a haunted mansion in the middle of New York City, and a house in the middle of nowhere built by a man who believed spirits gave him instructions and stood over him as he hammered in every nail. Visiting the places in which Mae lived and worked during her colorful career, we try to coax the far-from-shrinking violet into the limelight for one last performance...or will she ask us to come up and see her some time?moreless
