$600.00

Michael Todd's Peep Show was a 1950 American musical revue produced by Mike Todd, with music by, among others, Jule Styne, Raymond Scott and Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King of Thailand. The book was by comedian Bobby Clark, who did not perform in the show. Peep Show, which opened at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre on 28 June 1950, was a success, closing on 25 February 1951 after 278 performances.

After the opening performances of Peep Show, the New York City Commissioner of Licenses called a meeting with Todd which led to changes in how the women were presented. In Art Cohn's posthumous biography of Todd, _The Nine Lives of Mike Todd_, it is revealed that the naked girls featured in the show's mermaid sequence had difficulty getting the blue dye used in the water, out of their pubic hair.

14" x 11" original silver print with Halsman's stamp on the reverse. Dated in pencil on the reverse 1950.
