Kalantan ... "'the heavenly body | Goddess of Love and Beauty | Sweetheart of the Follies Bergere'"
"Aphrodite and Venus rolled into one face and body one poster for her states." Vintage Burlesque Model, Striptease artist: Kalantan aka: Sherrie Knight, Aileene Dupree. She was billed as an "interpreter of Afro-Cuban dance" in one of her Burlesque 16mm stag stripper films, but didn't really posses the Latin rhythms needed to pull it off, however her Burlesque Striptease interpretations were danced well even if not very Latin in nature however she had a great body and could strip well.
