Ziegfeld Girl Or Not?
Many famous actresses got their start in the Ziegfeld Follies. For instance Marion Davies, Paulette
Goddard, Barbara Stanwyck, Billie Dove and Mae Murray among others. Although I haven't found
any evidence that Dorothy was a "
Follies Girl" (With the exception of an early erroneous press
release saying she was), she was definitely a "
Scandals Girl" in George White's 'Scandals Of 1924'
music revue. Maybe what leads many to believe that she was a Follies Girl are the photos taken by
Alfred Cheney Johnston who is known for his artistic pictures of the Follies Girls.
