    Legendary San Francisco stripper Carol Doda, whose splashy act helped introduce topless entertainment to the city more than 50 years ago, died at age 78.

    Doda died Monday in the city from complications of kidney failure, friend Ron Minolla disclosed Wednesday.

    Doda first went topless in 1964 at the Condor Club -- a move that changed every nightspot on busy Broadway in San Francisco.

    During its heyday in the early 1970s, the street in North Beach buzzed with more than two dozen clubs where carnival-like barkers beckoned passers-by to watch bare-breasted dancers. The era spanned some 20 years.
