Attending the BlogFest was… intense, to say the least. Seriously, there is no chance for me to write anything intelligible before catching up with my normal (read: on antipodean time) sleep cycles.
So, please just enjoy Ms. Laverie “Charmion” Vallee’s aerial burlesque act. The year was 1901, she was a world sensation and this film was shot by no less than Thomas Edison himself. Modern burlesque invented nothing.
