There seem to have been a great many transparent or semi-transparent materials used in the sets and costume ornamentation of "La Chatte". The advertising of the day had it that the whole thing was made of cellophane. Photos and survival artifacts of the production reveal that a number of different things like mica, islinglass, gel and yes, cellophane were used. The last-named is actually a cellulose product, like rayon, except in sheets rather than fiber. It must have been a riot to dance on and in!
