Vintage Pinups and Movie Stars

My love for vintage Pinups and Movie stars has grown over the years to create a fantastic collection of Photographs and negatives from the past and now i want to share them with you.

Burlesque is a literary, dramatic or musical work intended to cause laughter by caricaturing the manner or spirit of serious works, or by ludicrous treatment of their subjects.
The word derives from the Italian burlesco, which, in turn, is derived from the Italian burla – a joke, ridicule or mockery.
A later use of the term, particularly in the United States, refers to performances in a variety show format. These were popular from the 1860s to the 1940s, often in cabarets and clubs, as well as theatres, and featured bawdy comedy and female striptease. Some Hollywood films attempted to recreate the spirit of these performances from the 1930s to the 1960s, or included burlesque-style scenes within dramatic films, such as 1972's Cabaret and 1979's All That Jazz, among others. There has been a resurgence of interest in this format since the 1990s.
In this Category you will find Photo's of Burlesque Dancers from many different era's.

A movie star is a celebrity who is well-known, or famous, for his or her starring, or leading, roles in motion pictures. The term may also apply to an actor or actress who is recognized as a marketable commodity and whose name is used to promote a movie in trailers and posters. The most widely known, prominent or successful actors are sometimes called "superstars" by writers and journalists. According to an online dictionary, a movie star is an actor or actress who is famous for playing leading roles in movies. In recent decades, there has been an increasing trend to associate the term only with those iconic leading actors whose careers were at their height in the 1930s, 40s, 50s or 60s.
In this category you will find photo's of Beautiful Classic Movie Stars of the Silver screen.

A pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models, fashion models, or actresses.
These pictures are also known as cheesecake photos.
In this category there are lots of lovely Vintage cheesecake photo's of Pinups from a bygone time when women dressed very feminine and always had a beautiful pair of stockings.

The nude figure is mainly a tradition in Western art, and has been used to express ideals of male and female beauty and other human qualities. It was a central preoccupation of Ancient Greek Art, and after a semi-dormant period in the Middle Ages returned to a central position in Western art.
