You would not think that Life magazine would have a backlog of unpublished nudes, especially from the 1940s, but I guess upper case Life was as full of surprises as lower case life. Noel Toy was a fan dancer in the 40s, and quite a famous one at that. She was known as the Chinese Sally Rand, and performed to packed audiences in New York and San Francisco. You can get all the info you need from her obit in the S.F. Examiner. I guess she was famous enough and deeply engrained enough in pop culture that Life sent out a photographer to record her act for posterity. You can tell from the final picture below that their pictorial was shot during an actual performance.

They must have known that they couldn't publish these pictures in the forties, but I don't know the full story behind the gallery. Perhaps they did an article on her and snapped hundreds of pics but but only used the most modest ones.

Anyway, the nude pics from the pictorial do exist, and here they are:



  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.
