Ladies Who Entertained Us

They entertained by stripping off their clothes on stage, it started in Vaudeville where they went from fully dressed to a tiny costume, Burlesque became a  genre of its own where the show was just ladies stripping on stage. 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.

Stripper Lili St. Cyr

Lili St. Cyr took Ballet lessons as a child and started dancing in Hollywood as a chorus girl such as at the Florentine Gardens Nightclub. Realizing she could make more money nude she made the change. Lili’s debut as a stripper was at the Music Box nightclub but was a flop. She got her big break in Hollywood in 1951 when she was charged with indecent exposure during a bubble bath performance at Ciro’s nightclub. By the time she beat the charge in court, the publicity had made her a headliner and led to series of low-budget movies.
