Folies-Bergere King Kong

Folies-Bergere King Kong

Faye Wray eat your heart out. Look how the mighty ape loves the sexy babe from the Folies-Bergere. The French always like to combine humor with their provocative stage shows, and King Kong must be the inspiration behind this program cover. I doubt the friendly beast appeared on stage with any of the dancers, despite the cover illustration. The contents of these programs was a predictable mix of posed shots of svelte young women in elaborate feathered costumes, along with panoramic views of the stage in full production.
