Candy Barr with her six shooters

She worked at the Colony Club, with a large placard of her prominently displayed out front. Barr established herself in burlesque and striptease with her trademark costume of a cowboy hat, pasties, scant panties, a pair of pearl-handled cap six-shooters in a holster strapped low on her hips, and cowboy boots.

Candy Barr on a Magazine cover. She acquired the stage name “Candy Barr” at this time (given to her by Barney Weinstein, reportedly because of her fondness for Snickers bars), bleached her hair platinum blond, and quickly became a headliner.

Candy Barr

At age 16, Barr appeared in one of the most famous and widely circulated of the early underground pornographic films, Smart Alec (1951). Because of the widespread “underground” distribution and popularity of this short hardcore 8mm movie, which is no more than 15 minutes long, she has been called “the first porn star.”
