Reblogging myself, here, but for a great reason! I posted this image set a few days back and mentioned that I hoped there would be a great reference for vintage Paris nightlife on a par with the Voluptuous Panic book by Mel Gordon and what it does for Berlin. Then, wish granted… Mel Gordon himself contacted me to let me know he’s doing a book on just that very subject! HORIZONTAL COLLABORATION: THE EROTIC WORLD OF PARIS, 1920-1946… out next year! Also, he corrected the original attribution.

So… the top is from Fétiche (1927); the bottom two are from Monocle (1932). [Fat Claude is in all three photographs.]

I’m working on an upcoming novel that has a large part of it set in Berlin during the Weimar years… an amazing array of clubs and cabarets of all types. Research has been a combo of online sources and the AMAZING Voluptuous Panic book by Mel Gordon. I wish there were similar books for the Paris clubs of the time, and the early clubs and cabarets of Chicago, New York, etc. Does anyone know of good books on the subject?

I love these looks at vintage perverts. One day I’ll be a vintage pervert, but for now, just a pervert.

Dwight Fiske was a cabaret performer, popularized in the 1930s by Tallulah Bankhead. His songs were usually about sexually needy women or animals. Yes, animals. No, I don’t know why, other than the inherit comedic value.

I wish I could go to this show right the hell now. Six feet and four inches of Louis deFee, hopefully dressed like shown in the ad, and FIFTY more girls, and it costs a quarter. Damn, yo… I got a quarter!

Lois DeFee - Superwoman: vintage newspaper ad for Lois appearing at Minsky’s Rialto Theater in Chicago.  The ad is dated 27 May 1942.  At 6’4” tall Lois was billed as either ‘Superwoman’ or ‘Queen of the Amazons’.  Originally she was billed as the tallest exotic dancer, but would have to cede that honor to Ricki Covette at 6’8”.

Perfect because of the children in the front. First, that they’re there, and then second, their individual reactions.

Classic spanking. Love those socks, and that hand of hers holding onto the shelf next to the photograph.

I like this image for all the colors, and the exuberant celebration of femininity.

I’m a huge fan of this period of tinted photography and inventive fashion.

Paris Plaisirs covers and photographs, 1920s.

While the cover art of Paris Plaisirs doesn’t have the high illustrative standard of other French periodicals of this era like La Vie Parisienne or La Sourire, the photography and Art Deco styling of the layouts does give it a strong visual appeal.

It’s like she’s surveying her dominion… acting the queen who is looking out upon a kingdom granted to her when she pulled not a sword from a stone, but her clothes from her body.

Love how this image is entirely wanton, but at the same time shows absolutely nothing.

Just because I love that vintage dress. Oddly, it kind of goes with that cute hat of hers.

I wish movie poster design was still an art, rather than a half hour in Photoshop.
