Thought this was an interesitng bit about the influence of Irving Klaw's burlesque films.

In her book Striptease: The Untold History of the Girlie Show (Oxford, 2004), Rachel Schteir declared that [Klaw's] movies did more to spread striptease across the country in this era [the 1950's] than any one burlesque short. [...] What they did was spread striptease, drag strips, and burlesque comedy to a provincial audience. In essence, they were giving these audiences what they might see in Miami, Las Vegas, or some other cosmopolitan city.
