After making her mark as one of burlesque's most in-demand performers, Gypsy Rose Lee starred in THE ZIEGFELD FOLLIES OF 1936 and even replaced Ethel Merman at the end of the run of DU BARRY WAS A LADY.

It was while she was starring on Broadway in STAR AND GARTER that she gave this very tame performance for the film "Stage Door Canteen," about the World War II Times Square nightclub for military personnel where Broadway's stars would volunteer to entertain and serve meals.
