Notes This Irish-born actress and dancer (of ballet and various folk dances) billed herself as seductive Spanish siren Lola Montez. She lived an outrageous life, marrying several times, and dancing the scandalous Spider Dance, in which she shook and shimmied all over the stage, as if her dress was infested with spiders- sometimes she would tuck rubber spiders into her costume, so that they would fly into the audience during the performance.
