Here’s A Look At The Real Gypsy Rose Lee

Gypsy Rose Lee (known also as Louise) was a stripper and burlesque dancer who found fame in the 1940s. She initially started in the vaudeville circuit at a very young age with her sister, June, who was thought to be the star of the show. When June left the act at 15 to get married, Gypsy, having few other options, entered the world of burlesque. She eventually became renowned for her sexy yet clever act. Gypsy’s life has been made into a move twice, once in 1962, starring Natalie Wood. And again in 1993 with Bette Midler as Louise’s mother, and Cynthia Gibb as Louise.
