Stage name: Candy Barr: Burlesque Dancer, Entertainer, Actress. One of the most well known exotic dancers in the country. At 16, she starred in one of the most famous stag movies, "Smart Alec," made in 1951. She was known for her choreography and even trained actress Joan Collins for the 1960 movie "Seven Thieves." In 1971, a book of her poetry titled "A Gentle Mind Confused," was published. In 1976, at the age of 42, she was on the cover of Texas Monthly and granted the magazine her last known interview in 2001. Eventually Candy Barr fell out of the public eye, and moved from her home at Lake Brownwood to her hometown of Edna, Texas, in 1992.
