HELLO IMDB.COM:
I WAS SEARCHING AROUND ON THE SUBJECT  OF MAE WEST ONLINE. I FOUND THAT HER BIRTH DATE ON YOUR WEB PAGE IS WRONG. MAE WEST WAS BORN ON AUGUST 17, 1893 NOT IN 1892. THE YEAR NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED. HERE IS A LINK TO THE CORRECT BIRTHDATE BY BIOGRAPHY.COM.  https://www.biography.com/actor/mae-west   & https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/1089/mae-west
THANK YOU,
VICKIE

The year seems to have been changed from 1893 to 1892 within the last six months. Whichever source was used at that time, it may not have been good enough.
