Mata Hari

Do you know the exotic dancer and accused WW1 double agent Mata Hari? Crazy story! She’s an icon.

“The problem was not what Mata Hari said but who she was. She was a woman travelling alone, obviously wealthy and an excellent linguist – too educated, too foreign. Worse yet, she admitted to having a lover. Women like that were immoral and not to be trusted.” (In 1917.)

This pinball machine was in an old dive bar where I used to go to listen to country western music. One of my buddies remembered and bought this on Ebay! Now it hangs in the living room. I love her bejeweled outfit, the awesome tiger rug and the fantastic snakes.
