"The Amazon Yolanda" Burlesque Newpaper Ad (1945)


  1. Amazing coincidence! I have been gathering info to recreate a missing scrap book about my Mom and this is the first ad I've found! She passed away last Feb. at 92 and I haven't been able to find any of several of her scrap books or anything relating to her career. In late '40s and early '50s, many of the LA newspapers had ads for "The Amazon Yolanda" and later, "The Glamazon Yolanda", up to a 1/4 page at times. She became a nurse in the early '60s. Don't dump the clipping, I'd like to have it. Ray

  2. I was looking up Yolanda, and came across this page and andragon's comment. My name is Robin Slack (nee Behlow), and I am a great-grandaughter of Yolanda. I am scanning some of her pictures onto my computer this weekend... Ray, if you'd like me to send them to you in e-mail format, let me know. You can e-mail me at robin dot b dot slack at gmail dot com.
