This is how burlesque began
Attending the BlogFest was… intense, to say the least. Seriously, there is no chance for me to write anything intelligible before catching up with my normal (read: on antipodean time) sleep cycles.
So, please just enjoy Ms. Laverie “Charmion” Vallee’s aerial burlesque act. The year was 1901, she was a world sensation and this film was shot by no less than Thomas Edison himself. Modern burlesque invented nothing.
