I received a little treat in my inbox this week -- a message from Mary Ault, who used to perform as Peaches Lulu. She shared some memories of Lili St. Cyr and graciously said I could dish 'em up on the Candy Pitch.
"When I was about 9 or 10, still living in West Hollywood in the mid sixties, there was a theater on Hollywood Blvd. where Lili was taking a bath in a window to promote a film," wrote Mary. "I remember being intensely fascinated by this and went to see her do it twice. This started my crooked path into the business. ... Later, when I moved back to West Hollywood, she had a lingerie shop which I used to go into just to look. She would be there but I was petrified to talk to her."
