1941 NUDE STRIP TEASE DANCER SALLY RAND PHOTO
1941 NUDE STRIP TEASE DANCER SALLY RAND PHOTO
This photograph shows Sally Rand, nude, with feathered fans. 1941.

Although she served as an actress to such directors as Cecil B. deMille, Sally Rand is best known for her famous "fan dance". She was born as Harriet Helen Gould Beck in the Ozark Mountain town of Elkton, Missouri on Easter Sunday, the 3rd of April, 1904. She was interested in dance from an early age and, literally, ran away with a carnival as a teenager. She later pursued such career opportunities as night club cigarette girl, artist's model, and cafe dancer.

Experience with the carnival led to employment with the Adoplh Bohm Chicago Ballet Company and the Ringling Brothers Circus. Later she started acting. While appearing in Los Angeles, Rand caught the eye of the famous "Keystone Cops" director, Max Sennett, who gave her a role in one of his films. She also worked for Cecil B. DeMille in the biblical film, King of Kings, and several other.
