    Star Theater 13 NW 6th Ave Portland, OR 97209

    Tempest Storm Returns To The Star

    In 1953 she moved to Portland, Oregon and worked at the Star Theater. A few months later she moved over to the Capital Theater down the street after her then-husband John Becker bought it. The owner of the Star then brought Becker's ex-wife, and rival burlesque star, Arabelle Andre to the Star to perform as "John's Other Wife". This sparked a "burlesque war" that made it into the pages of LIFE magazine on November 30, 1953.

    In the late 1950s, her breasts - "moneymakers" as she called them - were insured by Lloyds of London for one million dollars. She acted in several motion pictures both as herself and in a character role.

    At age 85?

    What exactly is she going to do?

    She still does her show....

    The burlesque queen emerges stage right. A slinky purple gown hangs off her shoulders. A rhinestone necklace envelops her decolletage. The snakelike boa pours into her hands.
    For a few seconds, her face flashes her nerves.
    And then she hears the cheers.
    When she performs, Storm smiles, leans back and walks on her heels, leading with her pelvis. Her hands float back and forth as if in water, until they fall below her hips and sweep up in tandem with a full frontal thrust.
    More cheers. Whistles.
    The boa disappears stage right.
    The next number picks up the tempo, letting Storm cock a hip on the down beats. She loses the gloves and steps off stage to put on the negligee. It's gone almost as quickly as it came.
    And with two flicks of her orange fingernails, the dress goes, too.
    Two-finger whistle. Hollers. Applause.
    Staring up at the 80-year-old woman in fishnets, a sheer rhinestone bra and a G-string, a young woman turns to a young man and declares:
    "I want to look like that when I'm her age."

    Pretty sure everyone who attends will know what they are letting themselves in for.....So no surprises in the majority of cases I presume...

    I'd be more into going to that than seeing the ROLLING STONES, actually. Tempest is a legend.

    This is pretty damn cool...

    "One of the Lonely Ones was secretly recorded by Orbison at a pivotal time in his life. The musician was coping with the despair he suffered after two of his sons died in a house fire while he was on tour. Barely two years earlier, his wife Claudette died in a motorcycle accident.

    The video for the album’s title track, “One of the Lonely Ones”, was directed by the husband and wife team of Michael and Alana Lawrence (billed as Daya & Wolf). It was shot on location at Little Darlings strip club in Las Vegas. Michael Lawrence says that for months he and his wife had been obsessing over the idea of using a mature woman in one of their films. “Roy Orbison has had a great effect on both our lives long before now. His music gives insight into the human condition, and his own life. Alana became fixated with the intrepid burlesque dancer Tempest Storm, 87, beautiful, and with a lifetime of stories. Equally fascinated, we intertwined both characters in the story – our image of Orbison’s words and Tempest’s beauty.”"
