Lot 534: Stripper Blaze Starr Handwritten Letter with Racy JFK Content
This is a truly unique find. This personal letter written by Legendary ecdysiast (born 1932) Blaze Starrs whose story detailing her life in and out of clothing was the subject of the book and subsequent film, Blaze. There is no date on the letter sent to a man named David but it is obviously a response to a letter sent to her. She explicitly states much was left out both the book and the movie and goes on to chronicle an encounter with then President JFK who apparently excused himself from a critical Cuban Missile Crisis meeting to have an interlude with the infamous dancer. She even includes a quote from JFK in reference to their tryst, "Boy, if Fidel Castro had something like you, he would think more about making love, and less about making war." Pretty incredible stuff here.
