Plot & Details

Beginning in the mid-1920s, the name "Minsky's" was synonymous with Burlesque. Not even Mayor LaGuardia's closing down of all the burleycue houses in New York was able to completely topple the Minsky empire. This 60-minute tape is a paean to the Minsky strippers and top bananas of yore. Contemporary comedians Phyllis Diller, Rip Taylor and Stubby Kaye recreate several of the comedy chestnuts that many burlesque habitues have committed to memory. And of course, there's that famous runway, and those fabulous strippers (a lot prettier and barer than their counterparts of 60 years ago).
