An extraordinary piece of film. Candy Barr was far more than a stripper, she was an improvisational dancer the equal to any jazz musician of the fifties. Friend of Jack Ruby and other Mobsters, her life wasn't pretty, but she sure could move. Ignore buffoons at the start of film, and pick up the book. Quite a story and quite a treat.
