Gypsy Rose Lee real name Rose Louise Hovick HITS THE ROAD
Gypsy Rose Lee travels light in this undated photograph. Her birthdate is undated too! Her mother faked Rose's birthday on documents to avoid child labor laws. Such is the nature of true burlesque. One would think a woman synonymous with stripping would have learned to carry less clothes, but that's showbiz. The girls look more comfortable. Road warriors!
