VERY Popular: J-104 All Burlesque - This is a compendium of almost 2 hours of burlesque entertainers and strippers from the 1940s and 50s. We're not allowed to advertise the names of a couple of the entertainers here, though these particular videos are perfectly legal to show. Some of the dancers are great, but most are mediocre or just plain bad. But they all seem to be enjoying themselves. NOT FOR CHILDREN! This kind of video plays well in a hipster environment or an old-fashioned corner bar or tavern.
