VARIETEASE (1954) ** ½

Irving Klaw produced and directed this filmed variety show whose main attraction is Lili St. Cyr, who is also seen backstage getting dressed and lounging around. She finally comes out of her dressing room for the final number. The film is only remembered today for having Bettie Page in it. Page, who is the first act does "The Dance of the Four Veils" is as sexy as ever and is the main reason you'll want to watch it (even if she's only in one scene). Besides other lesser known strippers, there's Vickie Lynn, a female impersonator, bad Vaudeville comedians, can-can dancing and some pretty awful songs. There's no nudity, but the Eastman color is excellent though. For Page fans only. Klaw also produced Teaserama with Page the next year.
