As things got more adventurous Strippers would offer their act even on Night Club floors. Later in the Century as technology evolved Ladies would perform on film and then video tape.

Barr was also in relationships with Mickey Cohen and Jack Ruby.

After serving three years in prison, Candy Barr went to South Texas. She returned to stripping in the late 1960s, and posed for Oui magazine in the 1970s, then retired. In the early 1980s, Candy Barr was acknowledged in the magazine Texas Monthly as one of history’s “perfect Texans”, along with other Texans, including Lady Bird Johnson.
