Sally Rand - vintage 8x10 photo
This is an early Silent film era photo of Sally Rand. Sally is now famous for her fan and balloon dance routines, but prior to becoming a burlesque star, Sally was a successful silent film actress. She had prominent roles in at least 26 films, and worked with the famous director/producer Cecil B. DeMille. In fact, DeMille is credited with giving Sally her now famous stage name, prior to meeting him she had been performing under the name Billie Beck - Beck being her real last name. Unfortunately, when ‘talkies’ - films with sound - came out, Sally was unable to continue with her film career, due to a lisp.
