Description

“JFK ... led me right to a closet.... We were just having a grand old time”

Legendary ecdysiast (born 1932) whose story detailing her life in and out of clothing was the subject of the book and subsequent film Blaze. ALS, one lined page, 8.5 x 11, no date. Starr’s notorious “report” of a liaison with John F. Kennedy. In part: “Oh yes, there was a lot of things I didn’t tell in my book or the movie ‘Blaze’…. In Jan. 1960, JFK, Jackie and LBJ from Texas came to the sho-bar [sic] where I was performing…. [At the Roosevelt Hotel in Washington] I took JFK by the hand and led him to another room. He led me right on into a large closet…. LBJ stood guard at the door. I took my bra and tied it to the door knob, and over a hanger…. We were just having a grand old time…. I put my sweater on, I already had my skirt and shoes on, I came out, and left the bra hanging…. JFK slid to the back of the closet…. While Earl [Long] had everyone hunting for [my mink] coat, JFK slipped out of the closet. JFK told me later, I took longer to win my [sic] body, than any election he had ever been in….” Starr has also added a color self-portrait, a small sketch of a rose, and a lipstick print kiss. In fine condition. R&R COA.
