8. DVD: Satan's Angel: Queen of the Fire Tassels
Surely a worthy piece of lesbian history, Satan’s Angel is director Joshua Dragotta’s delightfully fascinating look at the lesbian burlesque star of the same name. Now 68, Angel Walker is a ribald bad girl who has been setting nightclubs ablaze with her legendary flaming tassel act from the early 1960s and who still brings in thousands of fans to her shows. The documentary goes through Walker’s rebellious childhood and her affairs with both women and men, to her most recent long-term relationship with a devoted, adoring butch gal named Vic. Both a look at one pioneer and brief glimpse at the vast history of burlesque — all with a dose of campy goodness — Satan’s Angel is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all (adult) audiences. Bring Satan's Angel home with you on DVD Tuesday from Breaking Glass Pictures.
