Playing a stripper meant "doing the strips in front of 350 extras and a crew of 75 people," Cynthia said. She also wore very heavy Bob Mackie gowns and "very, very, high heals."

In a review of the movie for Daily Variety, Jonathan Taylor writes:

"...Gibb gives a star-making performance as Louise. Although overshadowed by Rose, Louise is in some ways a harder part to play; she needs to seem an inept wallflower who blossoms into a confident, beautiful Rose Louise - later dubbed Gypsy Rose Lee as she embarks on her stripping career. Gibb pulls this off skillfully, conveying the character's inner goodness, strength and pain." Daily Variety, December 8, 1993.

It's a great movie, and available on video. Rent it now!
