    The Dolly Sisters, Rosie and Jenny
The Dolly Sisters, twins Rosika (Rose) and Jansci (Jenny)  Deutsch, were born October 25, 1892 in Hungary,  and emigrated to the United  States in 1905. They perfected a single-sex “tandem” dance act -  practising in front of mirrors - under the name of ‘The Dolly Sisters’  they began earning money in beer halls as early as 1907. Barred for  being under age by the New  York City stage, they toured the Orpheum circuit until 1909 when  they debuted on the Keith vaudeville circuit till 1911 when they signed with the Ziegfeld Follies for two seasons.  It was                        here that they got their theme … “Siamese  Twins,”                        which they used throughout their career.
In addition to making about a half dozen films from 1913 to 1920,  they toured the theatres and dance halls of Europe.

    Rose Dolores (1892 - 1975) was born to a poor family as Kathleen Marie Rose in England. She was discovered by Lucille (Lady Duff Gordon) and worked as a fashion model from then on.
She was hired by Florenz Ziegfeld for the Ziegfeld Follies of 1917 after he has seen her in a fashion show in New York. She also appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1918, the Midnight Frolic of 1918, the Midnight Frolic of 1919, the Ziegfeld 9 o’Clock Revue, the Midnight Frolic of 1920 and “Sally”.
She wasn’t really talented in Singing and Dancing, but because of her looks she became one of the most famous Ziegfeld Girls.
In the Midnight Frolic of 1919 she wore an elaborate Peacock costume which was considered by many to be most spectacular single visual effect in a Ziegfeld show.
According to Doris Eaton Travis, Dolores was the tallest Ziegfeld Girl (about six feet) and “usually came on last in these parades of beautiful girls that would open up with a big fan”.
Dolores had many admirers, but in 1923 she decided to retire and marry the millionaire and art collector Tudor Wilkinson.

She performed in the “Ziegfeld Follies of 1926”, the “Midnight Frolic” of 1929, the “Ziegfeld Follies of 1931”, “Whoopee!”, “Rosalie” and “Rio Rita”.
She was some kind of the successor of Rose Dolores - she had not much Singing, Dancing or Speaking to do, but her mere presence was fascinating.
She was married to Mark Hellinger, who was the theatrical columnist for the New York Daily News and later went on to be a writer and producer of Crime Films.
After her career as a Ziegfeld Girl, Gladys started a beauty advice column for the New York Daily News and dabbled in radio.

    Marilyn Miller - September 1, 1898 - April 7, 1936
One of the best  female tap dancers of the 1920s, Marilyn began her career in vaudeville  as part of the “The Five Columbians”, her family’s vaudeville act, where  she was billed as “Miss Sugarplum”. Marilyn had arrived in New York  City in 1914, - immediately began working on the New York stages.
But it was Florenz Ziegfeld who made her a star after  she performed in his Ziegfeld Follies of 1918, at the famed New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street, with music by Irving  Berlin. Sharing billing with Eddie  Cantor, Will Rogers and W.C. Fields, she brought the house down with her  impersonation of Ziegfeld’s wife, Billie  Burke, in a number entitled Mine Was a Marriage of Convenience.
She followed as a headliner in the Follies of 1919, dancing to  Berlin’s “Mandy”, and reputedly became Ziegfeld’s mistress,  though this was never proven. Miller attained legendary status in the  Ziegfeld production Sally (1920) with music by Jerome  Kern, especially for her performance of Kern’s “Look for the Silver Lining.” The  musical, about a dishwasher who joins the Follies and marries a  millionaire, ran 570 performances at the New Amsterdam. 
She was married to Jack Pickford, brother of Mary Pickford, from 1922 to 1927.
Miller had a long history of sinus infections, and her health was  compromised by an increasing dependency on alcohol. According to reports  shortly before her death, she entered a New York hospital in early  March 1936 in order to recover from a nervous breakdown.  Three weeks after she entered the hospital, however, she developed a  toxic condition and died from complications following surgery on her nasal passages. She was 37. She died in New  York City on the morning of April 7, 1936 and was given a funeral  at Saint Bartholomew’s church on Park  Avenue which drew 2,500 people, including former mayor Jimmy  Walker, Beatrice Lillie, and Billie  Burke.

    Susan Fleming - February 19, 1909 - December 22, 2002
Her big stage break which led to her Hollywood career was as one of the  famed “Ziegfeld Girls” in the Ziegfeld Follies.  After starring in the Ziegfeld Follies productions on Broadway, she started appearing in movies. Fleming combined her dancing and cinematic interests in the 1932 movie Million Dollar Legs, in which she played the  daughter of W. C. Fields’ character. As part of a publicity stunt for  the film, her legs were insured for the eponymous million dollars.
Susan retired from show business when she married Harpo Marx in 1936.  They dated for four years and she proposed to him three times before he finally accepted.  They remained happily married for 28 years, and he died on their 28th wedding anniversary in 1964

    Bee Palmer
Beatrice C. Palmer was born in Chicago September 11, 1894, the daughter of Swedish immigrant parents Charles and Anna Palmer. She was a  musician, songstress, Ziegfeld Follies performer, dancer, and song  writer who had an all-around beauty and naughtiness that made her a very  popular act in the Roarin’ Twenties. She first appeared on the New York stage in Ziegfeld’s Midnight Frolic of 1918 where she sang ballads to her own accompaniment on the piano (Bee was  an accomplished pianist in her own right). It is during this time that  Bee invented one of the 1920’s most popular dances “The Shimmy”.

    Helen Morgan - (August 2nd, 1900 - October 8th, 1941).
She was the orginal torch singer; the first woman to get really drunk,  sit on top of a piano and sing sad songs about how she loves her man but  he treats her like dirt but she loves him anyway.  During her hey-day,  the 1920s and ’30s, she ruled supreme from atop a Steinway in dozens of  cabarets.  Her sad songs made even the hardest bootlegger cry in his  beer.  Literally placed on a pedestal, she was the true “untouchable” of  the Jazz Age.
She performed in The Ziegfeld Follies of 1931, and Ziegfeld’s “Showboat”.
