STRIPORAMA (1953) ** ½

Lili St. Cyr headlined this ensemble of strippers, but Bettie Page is far and away the sexiest and best known of the bunch. She plays as a harem girl who takes a hot bubble bath. She also appears in a dream sequence where she talks for the only time on film. "Of course I'm real. Feel me, touch me, caress me!" There's also an act that involves trained doves and a silly wraparound story involving two morons trying to get a Burlesque movie shown. Page and St. Cyr were both in Varietease the following year. After some risqué bondage pictures threatened her career, Page retired and now refuses to be photographed. Since then, she's become a cult celebrity and has been the subject of many books and a 2006 movie.
