From Johnny Meah:
"By the time I worked with Tanit Ikao on the Hunt Bros. Circus in 1954
her hair was no longer dark, as the poster and photos show but now snow
white----still teased out like an exotic pom-pom and still a lovely
woman. She performed as the show's "concert" or after-show attraction
doing her reptile and alligator hypnosis routines and finishing with a
sword ladder climb which concluded with a neck hang on the top sword.
Altogether a great presentation."
