Variety reports that Faye Dunaway will play Mae West in the upcoming film The Calling. Although West is considered an icon of outspoken sexual expression, her own sexuality remains a subject of conjecture--in recent interviews, West's Myra Breckinridge costar Raquel Welch maintains her conviction that West was really a man. Dunaway will premiere her directorial debut short film, The Yellow Bird, at next week's Chicago International Film Festival, which is honoring her with its Career Achievement Award.
