Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Crazy Horse of Paris

Created in 1951 by Alain Bernardin (d. 1994), the world-famous cabaret Crazy Horse (initially Crazy Horse Saloon) starred some of the most beautiful female dancers and strippers (in five decades, nearly 800 women with funny and exotic names).
Here are 8 great numbers that were filmed in 4 Italian documentaries, "Europa di notte" (Alessandro Blasetti, 1958), "Il mondo di notte" (Luigi Vanzi, 1960), "Il mondo di notte n. 2" (Gianni Proia, 1962) and "Il mondo di notte n. 3" (Gianni Proia, 1963).
Enjoy those jewels of a vintage era gone forever!

Dolly Bell

The song "O Jacky" is performed by Carol Danell.
Little is known about her. She was an American singer, composer, lyricist and actress, especially active in Italy, in the 1960s.
She worked namely with Armando Trovajoli and Piero Piccioni and collaborated in musicals, westerns, spy movies as well as in documentary films.
She went into show business like a meteor, and left it without a trace!
