This is a 1962 brochure for the College of Strip Tease that was held at the Pink Pussycat club, which was located at 7969 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood.   The club was owned by Harry and Alice Schiller.  At night the club was a lavish night spot, but during the day it transformed into the College of Strip Tease.  The school was managed and taught by Boots Mallory – whose given name was Sally Marr, the mother of comedian Lenny Bruce.

This was a advertising insert in the brochure that advertised a package deal suggested as a gift package.  The package includes 1 pin g-string, 2 pink fely bosom bonets (I assume pasties!!), navel jewel and a class on bumps and grinds.

  1. I worked the Pink Pussycat in years gone by and never saw anything to do with a class there, this was 1969 to 70″s In Hollywood for Alice and Harry Schiller, all our names were named after the clan then so I was Fran Sinatra!!!!!

    1. Hi Fran!!
      I have no idea if the school was still operating in the 1970s. Or….maybe you and the rest of the ‘rat pack’ were so good they did not need the school anymore!?!? 😉

  2. I ALSO HAVE AN ORIGINAL…….THE SAME AS THIS! I GOT IT WHEN I WORKED THERE. AS A FEATURED ATTRACTION UNDER MY OWN NAME IN THE EARLY 1960’S….GREAT TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE HAS ONE TOO!
