Kalantan      (aka. Mary Ellen Tillotson)
As a California teenager, Mary studied music while attending 'College of the Pacific' in Stockton, hoping to become an opera singer.. Upon graduation, she found those kinds of jobs hard to come by; and worked as a school teacher, for a short time.. Eventually, she landed a job at the 'FOLLIES Theatre' in Los Angeles.. But despite a reputation as a premier exotic dancer,— Kalantan has always regarded herself as a reluctant stripper: "I hate to strip.. I’ve never gotten over being embarrassed about it.."
