Description

In the 1940s and 1950s, strip artist Patti Waggin was billed as The Educated Torso, The Sex Oomph Girl, and the Fresh Faced Girl Next Door. Amazingly athletic, performing routines few others could manage, Patti was a "Headliner." She was also one of the friendliest performers on the burlesque stage, loved by her peers and fans alike. In this unique book, readers come to know Patti Waggin through the letters of her fans. She was committed to recognizing and writing back to her ardent admirers because she understood their need for her during the difficult years of the Second World War. The letters and an engaging text reveal her marriage in the 1950s to baseball player Don Rudolph. Over 280 photos of Patti on stage and at home, along with paper ephemera associated with her career, accompany the heartfelt letters included in the text. For anyone interested in burlesque, this book provides a unique look at one of its stars.
