Description[John F. Kennedy]. Blaze Starr Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8.5" x 11", no place; no date. Self-portrait and lipstick mark present. Addressed to a recipient identified only as "David," recounting a mysterious tryst with John F. Kennedy. It reads in full:
"Just a line to answer your letter. Oh yes, there was a lot of things I didn't tell in my book or the movie ‘Blaze.' In Jan. 1960 J.F.K., Jackie, and L.B.J. came in the Show Bar in New Orleans to watch my show. They joined Governor Earl K. Long at his table. I joined the party after my show. I was engaged to Governor Long at the time. Jackie left after about ten minutes. I had known J.F.K. since 1952. He was a regular at a club I worked in D.C. At closing time, the party plus several of Earls cronies, and myself and a dozen show girls, went to the Roosevelt Hotel, where Earl kept a suite. L.B.J. said lets make Earl jealous. So I took J.F.K. by the hand and led him into another room. He led me right on into a large closet. I took my Bra, and tied it to the door knob, onto a clothes hanger. We were having a grand old time, when we heard Earl yellin and screamin, Now where is Blaze and that young Kennedy feller? I put my sweater on, I had my skirt and shoes on, and came out. Earl said now what on earth are you doin in there! ‘With Panic' I said my mink coat is missing. J.F.K. slid to the back of the closet while Earl and everyone hunted for the coat, J.F.K. slipped out of the closet. J.F.K. said it was harder to win my body than any Election he had ever been in." Signed, with a star around her name, "Blaze Starr."
Accompanied by an 8" x 10" black and white topless photograph of Blaze, signed "Bustfully yours / Love Always / Blaze Starr."
Condition: Near fine. Boldly signed.
