Thank you for continuously contributing some fine eye candy here. Somehow I had missed the "Naked Island" spread - what classic text, hilarious!

That "Made in Western Germany" writing on that equipment case I believe refers to the Arriflex camera in an old sound blimp they used.

Yeah right, a likely story!
After our TC eyes have been sensitized by the extensive Frank Bowers research on this site:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=34053&forum=1&start=0

...we could not fail but notice his characteristic brush work in the background, and did not hesitate to identify the true location as being the Zamboanga, home to Bowers' most famous mural of them all:


(also found on page 144 of Tiki Modern)

It looks like Dee's cymbals...



...are replacing the gong that hung on the left side of the stage:



And it seems she is striking a similar pose than the three native basket bearers behind her.
Nice work, Dee!




Cabaret
volume 2 number 11
march 1957
http://martiantiki.com/cabaret-v2n11/

The reason I bought this issue was for the cover model Judy Bamber. She is best known for her film career in such classic movies as "the Atomic Brain" and "a Bucket of Blood."
She was also in the tv series "Hawaiian Eye"

This is an article on the Zamboanga club and its lead dancer Dee Evil. Obviously the photos are from the same source as the posts a few pages back - though clearly the Cabaret article is vastly more factual.

Great find! This supports what I said earlier here in another thread:

On top of a new generation with different musical tastes growing up, I believe the entertainment genre of the supper club where music and meals went together was gradually killed by the growing numbers and use of color television. More people stayed home more often. With a dwindling audience the venues could not support the cost, and the entertainers who could switched to appearances on the tube themselves.

The final devolution happened when TV-sets started appearing in bars....it now continues with invasion of the internet in the form of the I-phone, and Facebooking in bars.



And though we might think that to start having strip acts in supper clubs was a sign of devolution into a "seedier" genre of entertainment, it makes sense: WHAT was the only thing that TV could not offer to the adult audience?: Nudity and sex! That's the one thing where it could NOT compete with the nightclubs.

I'd love to get a better scan of that article.

I second that request for better scans. I'd love to "flesh" out some of the finer details of the decor of.......uhhhh......ehhhhh......Yeeeaaaaahhhhh.....what place were we talking about?

Martian-tiki provides all of his content in much higher-resolution...

http://martiantiki.com/cabaret-v2n11/

Yes, this was a significant find in documenting the history of the Zamboanga. Thanks Martian-tiki !!

It also shows that Martian-tiki's earlier related post in this thread wasn't just a one-off photo shoot.

Kind of puts Fantasy Island on Pico in a more relevant light from a historical devolution perspective, no?

Nice stuff as always, martian-tiki. That tiki in the shadows of the "Pleasure Cruise" cover might be a Witco. Bigbro would know for sure.

Found another Zamboanga photo. This time the dancer is Libby Jones, and the photo is dated January 1956:

Nice find Sabu. Was that a press photo or out of an issue, or other, I'm curious how other people look for things?

Cabaret Queens Quarterly
Volume 13 Spring 1967
http://www.martiantiki.com/cabaret-queens-spr1967/

This issue has actresses Jayne Mansfield on cover and Mickey Jines as centerfold (why I bought it). Also a rehash of the article on the topless Tiki Kai from Modern Man July 1966. There are some differences between the two. (Both magazines were by the same publisher)

Also a profile of a Stardust Casino showgirl - considering "stardust" has 200 hits on tiki central it doesn't strike me as inappropriate to include. Also an article with a go-go dancer in a hula outfit.

The thread on the Tiki Kai which just got bumped due to the tragic lack of images - prompted me to scan this issue.

Stocking Parade #2 1965


So anyone know what that primitive jetage art item is?



Some stuff I found - the redhead and that bar are in this thread somewhere already - but not at the same time...





EDIT: Ron Vogel's tiki bar with model Emily Badgett

Lately I've been finding stuff on library, museum, and newspaper archive sites. That Zamboanga photo was from the Los Angeles Library archive, if I remember right.

Here's a recent piece by Ben Newman I found on the usenets:
