The Bare Truth : Stars of Burlesque from the '40s and '50s, Paperback Book

The Bare Truth : Stars of Burlesque from the '40s and '50s Paperback


Following the tremendous success of his first book on the subject, The Queens of Burlesque, Len Rothe has again pulled from his collection of original photographs of entertainers this delightful selection of over 100 images of Burlesque stars.

Together with a revealing text that introduces burlesque to today's new audience, these photographs retain the surprise and teasing elements that endeared the dancers on stage in the heydays of burlesque shows, before television.

In theaters throughout America, striptease dancers entertained grateful audiences.

Here are Tempest Storm, Scarlett O'Hara, Lili St. Cyr, Georgia Sothern, and Zorita and her doves. With this book, they look out again with timeless beauty and show you the Bare Truth.
