Gypsy Rose Lee (1911 - 1970) was an American burlesque entertainer legendary for her classy, witty striptease act. Her casual strip style as opposed to the 'herky-jerky' styles of most burlesque strippers emphasized the "tease" in "striptease" and she brought a sharp sense of humor to her act as well. She was also an actress, author, and playwright whose 1957 memoir was made into the stage musical and film "Gypsy".
