The real story of burlesque is revealed in this entertaining documentary by Leslie Zemeckis and executive producer Robert Zemeckis. Told by the performers themselves, 'Behind the Burly Q' chronicles America's most popular form of live entertainment during the first half of the 20th century; the art of the dance; and its recent renaissance. Interviews include "M*A*S*H" star Alan Alda, whose father was a straight man at burlesque performances; legendary duo Abbot & Costello; Lorraine Lee, who danced for the likes of Bonnie & Clyde and Pretty Boy Floyd; the notorious Blaze Starr; and Tempest Storm, who still performs today and claims to have had relationships with J.F.K. and Elvis.
Special features include bonus interviews; a photo gallery; burlesque timeline; and the featurettes "The Reunion," "Memorabilia & Costumes" and "Behind the Scenes."
