A 1948 DVD of the famed San Diego "Hollywood Theatre" Burlesque Stage Show. The last Burlesque House to survive on the West Coast. I visited the show when I was in the Navy in 1960. A few years after that and the show was gone; the Theatre was demolished. This recording is a nice tribute to Burlesque when it was "naughty but nice"! The comedy was good although not quite the standard of Abbott and Costello, the girls were young and appealing. A mild show by far compared to today's movies! Certainly a great attraction in wonderful San Diego back in those days and a must see by every young US Navy Sailor stationed in the area.
The "Peek-A-Boo" footage was taken in a Los Angeles theater and is a bit raw. The comedy punch lines are deleated in the skits. If you've never seen a genuine tassel twirler, heres your chance! Elaborate scenery and staging, some of the "girls" had to be kicking 40 around! A fine Adagio Team is featured in the show.
