From R. Barton Palmer, "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die":

"In the early 1930s, Hollywood - beset with financial difficulties and production problems related to the conversion to sound cinema - turned to stage performers of proven popularity to lure customers back to the theaters.  Among the most notable of these was Mae West, whose play 'Diamond Lil' (which she wrote as a kind of showcase of her several talents) was immensely successful on Broadway and elsewhere."
