I wonder if anyone remembers the House of Rinck Nitery located near Stark Street and Central Parkway (near Brighton Corner) in Cincinnati. I would love to hear some stories from any one who might have visited the Club or met the proprieter John C. Rinck. He was my father and operated the club for at least 10 years. I found some references to it in The Billboard. The earliest references I've found is 1942 and the latest reference is 1952. The club booked aero dancers, magicians (the Great Jaxon) Strippers, Singers, Bands and so on. Someone reported to me that Rosemary Clooney may have sung there prior to her breakout carreer. Also I heard that Smitty's Band played there. Does anyone have any stories or recollections? In the 1950's Billboard reports there was an altercation involving Emerald Forrest an aero dancer who was clobbered in her dressing room by a stripper, Tana Louise. A complaint was filed with the American Guild of Variety Artists against the stripper by Ms. Forrest. If anyone has an recollections regarding the House of Rinck I would enjoy hearing about them.
