Persistence paid off last week once again, as I spent a few hours digging around some dusty old mounds of midcentury paper goods (mostly dullsville post cards), to eventually stumbled upon something at the very bottom suggestively titled, "Flip-Teez." Okay, in 1940, The Morton Company, based in Miami FL, produced a series of cute little pocket-sized celluloid striptease booklets --presumably for our boys in uniform fighting the good fight overseas, but of course any lonely 'ol boy (or girl) would do! Highlighted by funny cartoon art on the cover, followed by a truly awful poem on the inside front cover (the less said about that the better), and finally the main event delivery: 3 clear pages of hand painted, layered, celluloid clothing that you slowly remove, cel animation style, one-by-one to reveal the wonton woman, as well as most of her beautiful bare essentials underneath. The girl featured here is of asian persuasion, but researching these online you can find a vivacious variety of others ranging from bouncy burlesque babes, to Manhattan guzzlin' barflies, to curvaceous cowgirls, to lights-out lingerie lasses, and more! A fun little bit of wartime era naughtiness-- anything to ignite those home fires and keep that morale UP, *wink!
