Abstract
Burlesque dancer Jada performs a striptease at a night club (likely in New Orleans) as sultry music plays and the crowd applauds.
Description
Jada performs a sultry burlesque routine for a crowd in front of a mirror, in tassled pasties and a sequined thong. Horns and drums accompany her performance throughout; though the sound is garbled, the last song seems to have lyrics referring to Jada.

Jada (Janet Adams Mole Bonney Cuffari Smallwood Conforto Washington [1936-1980]) later became the subject of many John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, as she was the featured dancer at Jack Ruby's Carousel Club in Dallas at the time Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963. She also starred in the film Naughty Dallas (1964).
