Dagmar... "The Original Dancing Dagmar," "Miss Po Po."

Vintage Burlesque Dancer, Exotic Stripper and Model: Dagmar. Miss Dagmar was probably most famous for her 'Half and Half' dance routine entitled 'The Devil Dance' whereas her costume was half Devil or Mephistopheles. The act was tailored after reading 'Faust.' It was reported by Billboard Magazine that this was spectacular and the audience was stone cold quiet during her performance of it. Her regular peeling was also top notch.

During the 1950's another Dagmar surfaced whose name was Virginia Ruth Egnor (aka Jennie Lewis) and was sued by Miss Blair over the use of the name. Obviously Blair didn't win at least a name change as Egnor still used the name and even hosted her own TV Show using it... That's why the 'Original' in her billing.
