True Burlesque Bring your Trunk Modeling on the side for Ten Bucks
A True Burlesque hard working anonymous burlesquer supplements her income with a home visit. "Bring your trunk…" The major pornographers of the day (that being 1955 or so…) were Leonard Burtman and Irving Klaw, and quite likely a majority of the models they employed for photo shoots came from the stage…or those who failed to make it there. Thousands of young women aspired to show business, and for many it was no picnic. VERY Few reached the top. Most made the rent with modeling jobs on the side.
