Jennie Lee And Her Bazoomers Fan Club: The Burlesque Great In Photos

JENNIE Lee (nee Virginia Lee Hicks; 1928-1990)  was the “BAZOOM GIRLS”, main attraction of the “BAZOOMERS Fan Club”. She promised “Miss 44 and Plenty More”. (Although she was a 42-26-37.) As well as stripping for joy, she “formed the ‘Exotic Dancers League’ in 1955 to fight for dancers’ rights.. And by ‘57, began to hold annual conventions where dancers could reunite and hand out a “Fanny Award” (seen in the photo) to a public figure they deemed promoted the spirit of Burlesque.. Mickey Rooney, Walter Winchell, and Tony Curtis, were some of it’s earliest recipients.”
