Fan Dance Starring Sally Rand (film #6 on Exploitation Mini-Classics, Vol. 1 (Sinister Cinema)). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

Fan dancing was quite the racy thing in the 1930s, though it wouldn't raise an eyebrow today. It basically consists of a woman who just might be naked dancing with a couple of large fans that cover her body most of the time, but sometimes briefly reveal areas of the body that aren't usually revealed. The point was supposed to be the tease that if you watch really closely, maybe you could catch a glimpse of the dancer's naughty bits. Sally Rand was the queen of fan dancers, though it's hard to tell why in this short, since it's obvious she's wearing some sort of body stocking under the fans, which lowers the titillation factor considerably.
