Burlesque: Exotic Dancers of the 50's & 60's (Schiffer),
This review is from: Burlesque Exotic Dancers of the 50s & 60s (Paperback)
"Burlesque: Exotic Dancers of the 50's & 60's" (Schiffer) harkens back to our recent, historical past, with its series of black and white publicity images from the girls who closed out the mid-century movement. Author Judson Rosebush begins by covering the colorful history of the field from names like Mae Dix, Sally Rand, Ann Corio and Gypsy Rose Lee to emporiums such as Minsky's, the Zeigfield Follies and the clubs of Vegas, San Francisco and L.A. Eventually, the field gave way to the raunchier topless clubs and the go-go dancers of the 60's, but for capturing a moment in time, Rosebush's book aptly captures the history and look of a long gone era.
