Love Moods1952

  • 2.7
Reclining on her chaise lounge in a see-through robe, Lili St. Cyr decides she needs a wash. In a gilded tub fit for Marie Antoinette, she bares all that the law will allow. Then she squeezes into an evening gown and mink coat to paint the town red with you, dear viewer! Well, a guy can dream. This color "ballet pantomime" afforded Average Joes a chance to see its star's "celebrated Bubble Bath, exactly as presented on the world famous Sunset Strip in Hollywood." Burlesque performer and pin-up legend St. Cyr was the most famous striptease artiste of her day, living up to her scandalous image with a well-publicized private life that included no less than six stormy marriages and numerous rumored celebrity affairs. - Dennis Harvey

Lili St. Cyr and her bathtub. Both deserve a special place in the halls of Americana. St. Cyr, one of Burlesque’s greatest stars, was also one of it’s most unique. Instead of playing to her audience, she pretty much ignored them, going about her business, acting as if they weren’t there, performing her delicate precise ballet of fantasy hygiene. It’s all here, captured for posterity on glorious film, thanks to the one-and-only Dan Sonney, founding father of Grindhouse Cinema. Sonney also deserves a special place in the back alley history of American pop culture

It's as I remembered - beautiful teasing, some flirting, some too-quick risk moves, all lightly covered in some magazines, but I was too young to get into the theater.

Sigh. This old clip helps me appreciate the wonders of today's higher resolution.

nice little dance did not show anything my father and grandfather would have a thrill just seeing some skin

Wow. Love old color films. Is that Marilyn Monroe?

lovely images for what it is, but the dynamic between st. cyr and her black maid makes it hard to watch. images of black women made to serve white women should not be celebrated.

well whoever shot this vignette has no idea about lady's bubbly baths.. allow me to correct it... seems he was taken up with leg show and bubbles from out side bit too much, let me give corrections... women or even girls after bath rub creams oils potions in their bodies, spray themselves with fragrances before dressing up, a fact with most civilized women even the non civilized use natural elements to enhance their bath rituals , so there now I need a smiley with tongue out to say boo! you have no idea how women take their bath!

lame

Not bad Classy.
