Satan’s Angel: vintage 8x10 photo from 1954
This is not Angel Walker, the fire tassel twirler that started using Satan’s Angel as her stage name in the early 1960s. This woman was an East Coast performer that was active in burlesque in the early 1950s. According to a letter written by Marty Whyte, her agent, she was a talented tassel twirler, did a ‘breast control’ number, and a bubble act using a bubble machine and colored lights. I have a press packet packet Marty Whyte sent to A.L. Meakin, the owner of the Rialto Theater in Seattle, WA, in hope of securing Satan’s Angel a booking at his theater.
Burlesque performer Misty Vie Va Voom backstage at Jaks…wonderful corset. (Part of a series of portraits of burlesque dancers).
Got confirmation that one of my burlesque portraits is going to be featured on a new, and really interesting, website. I also got to write a piece that goes with the image which was fun to do…I’ll post the details next week.
