True Burlesque Double Header! Luscious Young Showoffs

Well, I am not sure where the "50" comes from for Tempest Storm measurements.  Seems to me True Burlesque is being exaggerated in this poster for Peep Shows of Paris.  The "luscious young showoffs" could be correct, however.  Dozens of dancers started young.  Tura Santana at age 15...and It was a brutal, horrid business for many.  The second flick sounds good!  .
