Item Description

8x10” glossy bw photo shows “Irma The Body” posed seductively in a revealing gown. 2” tear at top margin with archival tape repair to reverse. VG/Fine. 8-1/8x10” glossy bw photo shows “Irma The Body” posed in Army fatigues, her breasts exposed and holding a bumper sticker reading “We Back Our Men In Viet Nam.” Heading at top of photo reads “Your Goodneighbor Policy In Action,” a reference to Irma’s real name - Mary Goodneighbor. Scattered aging. VF. Lot also includes 3.5x3.5” full color vintage glossy candid snapshot showing Irma posed in a rather low-cut dress standing with musical comedians “One Plus One.” They pose in front of a photograph of the duo. Blue ink text on back reads “One Plus One, And Irma…Sang With Them A Few Times – Great Talent…” Text appears to be in Irma’s hand. Great candid content. Exc. All c. 1960s. Last item in lot is 3.5x5.5” real photo postcard showing a nice bw photo of Irma in skimpy burlesque outfit. Her name appears at bottom and postcard has been signed in blue ink “Love, Irma.” c. 1950s. VF/Exc. Nice lot for this burlesque legend. From the Richard Merkin Collection and comes with Hake’s COA. (G - $100 to $200)
