Z is for Ziegfeld Follies

We made it!  The final post of the 2014 A-Z Challenge!

The Ziegfeld Follies are one of those things that caught my attention by their funky name. 

They were a series of over-the-top Broadway shows that ran between 1907 - 1931 and then a comedy / musical film in 1945 featuring such talent as Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Lucille Ball, Gene Kelly and Red Skelton (to name a few)

The Broadway show was also known for the "Ziegfeld Girls", a group of beautiful chorus girls (is there such thing as an ugly one??)  

Fanny Brice

Barbara Stanwyck

Dolores Costello
