La Savona Vintage Burlesque dancer, Singer photo 1

La Savona ... "The Modern Scheherazade," "Miss Atomic 1953," "Czech and Double Czech."

Came to the United States in 1947 from Czechoslovakia and by 1953 she had became La Savona of the Burlesque stages across America. Best known for her "Scheherazade Oriental Act," her Salome routine and the "Outer Space Number" hence the 'Miss Atomic' moniker. Was inducted into the Burlesque Hall of Fame 'Legend of the Year' 2012. Posed many times for Irving Klaw photo's.


Photo 1: Miss Savona is seen here on the Cover of Cabaret Magazine: Queens Quarterly.
