With the launch of the surprisingly good Christina Aguilera / Cher movie Burlesque, I thought it might be interesting to review the history of this scene with its close links to jive and rockabilly. Here are some of the key personalities in the genre:

1) Tempest Storm had her pair-fect assets insured for $1m at Lloyds of London and even at 82 can still be sometimes persuaded to take the stage:

2) Lili St Cyr was famous for her range of underwear and was known as the anatomic bomb:

3) Blaze Starr had the gimmick of sitting on a sofa and it would burst into flames around her:
