Dita von Teese is THE burlesque star. She´s a very fascinating artist and you should check out her website. She (who is the ex-wife of Marilyn Manson) is a constant source of discussion.
She starred (as Gala) in a movie called "The Death of Salvador Dali". I´m dying to see the movie, but it is not available in Germany. If you live in the States you can download the movie at iTunes for $2. The others can at least watch the trailer here!
I guess "The Death of Salvador Dali" cannot be compared with "Blooming Dahlia". But at least this strange short film is available for us Europeans too.
"Elizabeth Curt is going to a typical photoshoot for the dangerously sadistic artist Fritz Enoch, only to find there is nothing typical about it. Enoch's demanding oddities leave Elizabeth questioning her safety. But like so many Hollywood starlets, the hope of fame and money dance loudly in her head, drowning out any sense of reality."
