Sally Rand, American Sex Symbol

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
 Her name was Sally Rand and two ostrich feathers in a second-hand store rescued her from obscurity. She would appear in more than thirty films, be named after a Road Atlas, be arrested six times in one day for indecency, and live on as the iconic symbol of the Chicago World's Fair of 1933. She would pave the way for every sex symbol to follow from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga, and would die penniless and in debt. William Hazelgrove will tell you the full story of Sally Rand.
