Vintage Vidya in Sabyasachi


This has been colorized and it is beautiful. Jean Ackerman - Ziegfeld Follies Girl - Performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1927, the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of 1929, and in Ziegfeld’s musicals Rosalie, Whoopee 1928 and Smiles 1930 - @Mlle

Doris Eaton Travis, the last surviving Ziegfeld Follie and silent film actress, died regal age of 106. Wasn't she just stunning! Her face is very ethereal and fairy-like. She was only 14 when she joined the Follies, the youngest to debut with them ever. She was such an inspiration. It really is the end of an amazing chapter in burlesque and vaudeville history.

I never knew that Paulette Goddard had been a Ziegfeld girl! What a beauty.

Paulette Goddard began performing with the Ziegfeld Follies as a teen.
