If you have a minute and want to read something interesting about trail blazers woman in the area of film, entertainment, and using her sexuality to build a career, read the life of Emilie Marie Bouchaud "Polaire." She had a 16 inch waist, chopped off her hair, wore tiny skirts, and wore heavy eye make-up. Al this before these traits were considered feminine or sexy, and she did it all to cheers and jeers while flaunting her overt sexuality on stage. A beautiful and early studio photograph in nice shape from a New York photographer and it presents beautifully with some wear to the lower left corner.
