My favorite moment from Bodo playing Mae West and singing "Sex Appeal" in 1937

We'll be doing this song Sex Appeal at our concert Saturday night at the ArtsCenter but nobody will be in drag. Isn't this clip so full of life? You can see him sing the whole song (in Polish - we'll do it in Polish and Yiddish) at Youtube.

Mae West? Or perhaps Gilda Gray? She was Polish and Jewish and popularized the shimmy shake in Milwaukee during the Roaring Twenties.

Hi Craig, good thought! But the announcer at the beginning of the scene says, "Mae West!"
