Kitty Kar - The Original Geisha Girl

Today's Vintage Burlesque Dancer photos: the lovely Kitty Kar - The Original Geisha Girl

Just "Click the Pix" to see a larger view.

  • From my archives.

  • Apparently she was on the bill one week with these gals, Kim Paris, Carmela, and June Harlow.

  • From my archives, with newspaper ad.

  • She was billed as THE ORIGINAL GEISHA GIRL.

I want to thank the anonymous Kitti Kar acquaintance/admirer who sent along some pix of Kitti, including a candid shot of Kitti taken in the Blue Room at a hotel near Broadway in NYC, along with the following info tidbits:

"... Kitti is alive and well. She is 'around 70' years of age now.

She was a professionally trained classical ballet dancer and was a member of a professional company in NY for a while, as a member of the Corps de Ballet. She then went into musicals and toured with NY companies for about 2-3 years.

She became a headliner "Exotic Dancer", dancing from late 1959 to 1964, and was one of the top earners of the time. In her hey-day she earned anywhere from $800.00 to $1500.00 per week depending on the venue.

She has some amusing ancedotes involving various famous people: politicians, actors, and movie stars that she met. She was twice mentioned in the Walter Winchell column of that time in connection with certain famous personalities. ..."

I could not find any bio/history or other online references to any vintage Burlesque stripper named KITTI KAR, so if you have any info, memories, or stories to share, please email me. Thanks!
