Remember Me?

Hollywood -- While the kids watch a cute little girl called Shirley Jean in old 'Our Gang' movies on TV, their parents can watch the same girl doing bumps and grinds at a Hollywood burlesque theater. In her dressing room at the New Follies, Shirley Jean, now grown up and billed as "Gilda and Her Crowning Glory," points to a picture of herself as one of the 'Our Gang' kids. (1955)

It turns out Shirley Jean has a website and she doesn't shy away from her burlesque background.

Too bad the pictures are so small...

I like that mention of "their parents." Yes, Mom is going to accompany Dad when he visits the local burlesque theater. She'll be wearing a nice hat, decent coat, and matching purse and shoes for the big night out, watching a woman undress in public.
