CHIPPENDALES, PLAYBOY and the murder of Dorothy Stratten

Chippendales was born in 1979 from a West Hollywood club called “Destiny II” owned by Somen ‘Steve’ Banerjee and Bruce Nahinwned when promoter Paul Snider suggested that they have an all-male strip revue. Destiny II’s owners were trying anything to attract attention to their club, so they decided to try out Paul’s idea. He was inspired by an all-male strip club in Canada that catered to gay men. His idea, however, was to have an all-male show for women. Paul’s idea turned into an international sensation but ended in murder and mayhem for him.
