Sally and her Monkey True Burlesque
Sally Lane, or Sally Majestic, with her monkey Fifi. I don't know if Fifi had more than one name. For some reason burlesque fans seem to love pictures of Sally, but so did famed pervert Irving Klaw, who photographed her many times. I sure hope she didn't use that whip on Fifi, but that's not big news…Irving would shoot any stripper coming through town who would pose in undies or wield a whip, but I can break some BIG news here.
There were TWO Fifis. Yep, just like on Full House when two little monkey-like actresses named the Olsen Twins played one role. Sally had two monkeys, one named Fifi Junior. She also performed with an Angora cat. Sally was most active in the late 1940s and early 1950s. She worked for strip pimp Lou Miller and called her touring troupe the Paradise Revue, which played state fairs in the East, where horny, curious farmers would pony-up a quarter and see the show while their wife competed in the best pie contest. She also posed for Bruno of Hollywood, who would shoot any dame not in a skirt. Fifi the monkey wears special matching leopard skin print for the publicity shoot.
Sally was arrested in 1949 for stripping off too much.
