Siri, the Dutch Doll ~ 1950’s #Burlesque Queen Vintage Photos

Siri, the Dutch Doll


Other than many newspaper ads for her appearances in Burlesque theaters and clubs in the 1950s, the only info I could find on Siri was from the FBI’s investigation into Jack Ruby. The FBI looked into his known associates, which include anyone who performed at Ruby’s night club.

This screen shot of the FBI report [link] shows that they contacted Siri, who said she never worked for Ruby.

We can see her real name was Marjorie Alice Putnam, was living in Hollywood, and at that time, 1963, had been in show biz for about 20 years, and stripping for ”the past several years”.
