We are in the middle of watching the 2005 film "Mrs. Henderson Presents" a fun offering about an interesting element of 1930s English life.
I just love finding these neat little gems of great film making -- especially (as in this case) when they tell a true story of real people.
Mrs. Henderson (pictured) was a recent widow who was rich and bored -- what seems to have been the perfect combination for something wonderful to happen in early 20th-century England. With nothing else to occupy her time, she purchased a closed theater, and started live shows -- with naked women. Of course, it was a hit.
There is much more to the story, of course. You can find out more from the film, or this website which offers photographs of one of the theater's programs.
