The Men of the Folies Bergere


At a local antique and collectibles event at the weekend I bought two review programmes from the Folies Bergere in Paris in the 1930s and I am utterly enchanted by the deco glory of it all and can easily see myself being seduced into collecting more of them. However, I was surprised, among all the bouncing breasts and beautiful bling to see more than a shadow of well-oiled beefcake. And is it possible... to look at the final image below, that I may have stumbled on the inspiration for the famous Jabba the Hut and Princess Leia scene in Star Wars?
