Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Did somebody burst her bubble?
She had fans even before she worked with bubbles. (And she lent her name as a nickname for a Canadian ship - HMCS St. Laurent was nicknamed "the Sally Rand.")
She also lent her name to a prototype one-man flying gunship (see it on youtube) and to a football play. Her patent on her bubble was requisitioned by the military during WW2. Yes, the fans came first.
My mom saw her perform, and said she had a ring on her ass from sitting on the toilet. True story.
the ring on her ass was also patented and later used in military applications. True story
by the way, I saw Sally perform many times and as she got older--into her seventies--the men in the audience were transfixed and the women looked angry
