89-years old Tempest Strom is the stage name of Annie Banks, who is an American exotic dancer, burlesque star, and motion picture actress. She is best known for burlesque performance of the 1950s and 1960s. Her career lasted around six decades.
Early life and Education
Tempest Storm was born on February 29, 1928, in Eastman, Georgia, United States of America. Strom’s study lasted up to seventh grade and in 2016 recalled, she had been sexually misused around that time.
Therefore, Tempest was not able to promote again her study seriously. She belongs to American nationality and her ethnicity is white.
Tempest Strom began her work as a server in Columbus, Georgia when she was 14 years. She moved to Los Angeles approximately in 1945 when she was 17, where she worked as carhop server at Simon’s Drive-in. She also worked as a cocktail server, even still underage.
Tempest Strom was a regular actress for several years at EI Rey. It is a burlesque museum situated on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas. There she worked along with Lili St. Cyr, Sally Rand, and Blaze Starr. She appeared in many movies like ‘Buxom Beautease’ (1956), ‘Teaserama’ (1955), ‘Striptease’ (1952), and many others.
Later Tempest Strom went to Portland, Oregon in 1953, and worked at the Star Theater. She told her life story to writer Bill Boyd, whose transcriptions of Tempest’s dictations set up the 1987 book named Tempest Strom: The Lady is a Vamp. Her career course was even longer than Strom’s contemporaries.
Although Tempest Strom ceased to her professional work in 1995 when she was 67 years, she sometimes danced on stage until June 2010.
Personal life and Affair
A representative of the storytelling here is the chapter about Tempest Strom’s most enduring marriage to Herb Jeffries who was Duke Ellington’s singer and the first black cowboy star. He died on May 25, 2014, who-as we see briefly lived to 100 years. Subsequent birth of their daughter effectively destroyed her career.
The subject is hung down as the movie begins to detail Tempest Strom’s many successes. She unquestionably did not succeed where Strom’s child was concerned, and family alienation becomes a dramatic through-line, which leads nowhere, emotionally. Tempest Strom married a Columbus shoe salesman when she was 15 years old.
His sister worked with her at a hosiery mill. In 1968, Tempest Strom said in her interview with film reviewer Roger Ebert, which after six months in that marriage, “I just left one day. I still had it in my mind to Hollywood. I couldn’t get it out of my system.” Tempest Strom also had romantic linkup with Mickey Cohen and Elvis Presley.
Net worth and Body Measurement
Information about Tempest Strom’s net worth and salary is yet to be revealed on any internet site and other Social medias. She stands tall at the height of 5 feet and 6 inches and her weight is 60kg. She has an hourglass figure with her famous body measurement of 44-25-35 inches. She also looks very beautiful with her naturally red hair.?
