"Born in Pittsburgh, Myrna Darby, appeared in six Ziegfeld productions—“No Foolin’,” “Rio Rita,” “Follies of 1927,” “Rosalie,” “Three Musketeers,” and “Whoopee”—before her death from an inflammation of the heart at age 21. She fell ill during the run of “Whoopee” and though reputedly one of the highest paid showgirls in New York, left an estate of only $750. Strikingly photogenic, she was one of the most photographed of the Ziegfeld girls in the 1920s. Johnston’s images are generally reckoned the finest taken of the short-lived beauty." [David S.

imdb.com

NY Times

(January 19, 1902 - March 18, 1979) Marjorie Daw was a silent film star who performed from 1914-1927.

"Film star Marjorie Daw was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1902 as Margaret House. She took her screen name from the title of a popular story by Thomas Bailey Aldridge when she entered the movie business at age thirteen in 1915. She played in 66 releases during the twelve years of her career. Among the prettiest of silent film ingénues, Daw could count on work until the coming of sound. Johnston’s portrait was taken in 1920 when her role as Mary Josephine in the Canadian gold fields drama “The River’s End” made her a dramatic star."

"In 1923 she married Eddie Sutherland, Chaplin’s assistant director, the first of several husbands. The marriage lasted two years before dissolving for incompatability. In 1929 she married film agency head Myron Selznick. They were divorced and he sued $1,000,000 for excessive cruelty in 1939; the case cleared in 1942 with Daw receiving $1,200 a month alimony and custody of child Joan." [David S. Shields]

Shannon Day performed as Miss Day in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1913 and perhaps in other Ziegfeld Follies and Midnight Frolics.

From Bob Hudovernik's fabulous book "Jazz Age Beauties: The Lost Collection of Ziegfeld Photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston": "Shannon Day was an Irish Follies performer and film star, directed by the DeMilles."

The NY Times: "Shannon Day had brown hair and deep blue eyes. Of course, the color of her eyes - a major attraction when she was a Ziegfeld showgirl - was lost to cinema audiences... A veteran of both the Follies and Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolic, Day had begun her screen career in 1920 and ended it with Hotel Variety (1933)."

Broadway Photographs: Biography

Dr. Macro's Annex (pics 01 - 03)

(January 9, 1892 - March 18, 1984) David S. Shields on Rubye De Remer: "Here is what I wrote at my Broadway Photographs site: Rubye DeRemer (1892-1984) Blonde silent star Rubye DeRemer was born and educated in Denver, but heeding the advice of a family friend headed to New York City to seek fame and fortune. She won a place in the 1917 Ziegfeld Follies and became one of the featured girls in the 1918 Midnight Frolic. Weber and Fields in Spring of 1918 enticed her from the Amsterdam Theater’s rooftop with the promise of speaking as well as dancing parts in their revue, “Back Again.” Yet reciting dialogue would not be De Remer’s path to fame."

"From her days as a Follies chorine she had worked on the side during the daytime as an actress for various New York-based film companies. Certain of these films—“The Auction Block” and “Ashes of Loves”—found an audience. She was signed by Lasky who presented her in feature after feature as an incarnation of feminine passion. Her greatest success was in 1922’s “The Unconquered Woman.” She retired at the peak of her powers in 1923 after playing the lead in “Don’t Marry for Money,” and spent years indulging her passion for breeding German Shepherds."

""The most beautiful blonde since Venus" was photographed repeatedly by ACJ from 1917 to 1923. The latter sittings were done as part of publicity campaign for Arrow pictures." [David S. Shields]

Barbara Dean performed in Ziegfeld's musical comedy Sally (1920-1922).

Info from member stanwong paraphrased from Bob's JAB book: "She was a private secretary who seem enamored with the photos Mr. Johnston took of the Ziegfeld girls. She went to his studio and paid him a tidy sum for a photo portfolio. It seemed Mr. Johnston thought of Ms. Dean as one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen in New York. It's possible he asked her if he could publicize her photos to the public. The shy Ms. Dean said "no" and made Mr. Johnston swear to never release any of their studio photos. Well, alas, with the death of Mr. Johnston in 1971...we finally have pictures of the beautiful N.Y. secretary, Barbara Dean, to enjoy in the 21st century!!!"


Dell, Claudia: [ACJ]

NY Times

Dr. Macro's Annex (pics 01 & 02)

(January 10, 1909 - September 5, 1977) Claudia Dell performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1927, the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of 1928, and in Ziegfeld's musical Rosalie (1928).

"Blonde Texan Claudia Dell first gained notice as a singing Showgirl in the Schubert revue “Gay Paree” in 1925 where she attracted the eye of Florenz Ziegfeld who cast her in Rosalie. While she was playing in “Three Muskateers” in 1928 she took part in an experiment by Columbia University Professor William Marston subjecting three blondes and three brunettes to emotionally inciting scenes (Garbo clinching with John Gilbert in “Flesh and the Devil”) to determine which group was more emotional. Conclusion: the brunettes."

"Dell participated in Ziegfeld’s unsuccessful attempt to revive the “Midnight Frolic” in 1928. In 1930 she went to Hollywood and enjoyed a career characterized by a surprising lack of judgment about which films might further her art. She was capable of fine acting, as in “Fifty Million Frenchman” and “Destry Rides Again,” but found herself doing serials by 1934." [David S. Shields]

(July 25, 1893 - September 25, 1995) Dorothy Dickson performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1917.

"Dorothy Dickson emerged as a dancer in the public dance hall, Jardin de dance, in New York, in summer of 1914. Later, partnered with her husband Charles Hyson, she was featured in the musical “Oh Boy” and at the Cocoanut Grove in 1917. By April she was billed, without partner, as “The Greatest Dance Personality in the World.” This extravagant claim attracted Ziegfeld who hired her as featured dancer in the 1917 Follies."

"She followed her Ziegfield stint with the musical “Girl O’Mine” at the Bijou in 1918, her first speaking part. She teamed with Hyson again for Jerome Kern’s “Rock-a-bye Baby,” yet her success was so pronounced that the New York Times on May 26, 1918, ran a feature announcing her the successor of Irene Castle as the mistress of ballroom dancing. Everyone was struck by the expressive way she used her shoulders. During the First World War she was often on stage performing for troop benefits. In 1919 she appeared briefly George M. Cohan’s “The Royal Vagabond” and in the operetta “Lassie.” In that year she began her film career, dancing in “Eastward Ho.”"

"Signed by Famous-Players Lasky, she finished 3 films before crossing the Atlantic to London to star in the English edition of Ziegfeld’s “Sally,” in which she enjoyed enormous success. Dickson stayed in London, shaping a distinguished career on the English Stage recorded in photographs by Johnston’s friend, James Abbe. “The Cabaret Girl” sealed her renown and earned her the friendship of the Queen Mother. During the Second World War she founded the English version of the Stage Door Canteen. She lived to be 102, one of the revered figures on the English theatrical scene." [David S. Shields]

Dolores (Dolores Rose & Rose Dolores): [ACJ]

ibdb.com

Dr. Macro's High Quality Movie Scans Website

(1892-1975) Born Kathleen Rose, this tall English beauty was a popular fashion model when Ziegfeld hired her for the 1917 Follies. Although she could neither sing nor dance, her extraordinary looks made her a favorite, and she appeared in various Follies and Frolics walking across the stage in spectacular costumes. She appeared in the long-running Sally before retiring to marry a millionaire.

From interview with Doris Eaton: "...the showgirls were tall, willowy creatures, anywhere from five-six to five-ten. Dolores was the tallest one. She was just over six feet, I believe. She usually came on last in these parades of beautiful girls that would open up with a big fan."

Dolores performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1917 and 1918 and in the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of July 29, 1918. According to the theatre programs, she also performed in the Ziegfeld Follies-Frolic Ball of 1918, the Ziegfeld Nine O'Clock Revue of September 22, 1919, and the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of 1920 (May 31 edition). I also have a NY Tribune Rotogravure pic showing her performing in the Midnight Frolic of July 1918. She appeared in the long-running Sally before retiring to marry a millionaire.

"Rose Dolores was the most famous Ziegfeld Girl, the apotheosis of the style of patrician, self-possessed, beautiful woman around whom the spectacle of the Broadway revue radiated. Featured in the Follies and Frolics from 1917-1920, her amble cross the stage in a Peacock costume designed by Pachaud of Paris in the 1919 Midnight Frolic is cited by many as the most spectacular single visual effect in any Ziegfeld production. “Dolores” was born Kathleen Marie Rose to a poor English family and became the hired girl of fashion designer Lady Duff Gordon, (“Lucille”) the couturier. Realising that the girl’s height and cornsilk blonde hair would make a great effect on the runway, Gordon, taught the girl how to walk, talk, and pose like a duchess. When Lady Gordon transferred her business to New York City during the First World War, she brought Dolores and several other models with her. Ziegfeld attended a fashion show in 1917, hired Lucille to be his costume designer and “Dolores” to be a Ziegfeld girl. Combining the stage tutelage of Ned Wayburn, who taught her to strut, with the runway tutelage of Lucille, “Dolores” elevated attitude to stratospheric heights. Mobbed by well-heeled admirers, Dolores in 1923 finally consented to wed St. Louis millionaire and art collector, Tudor Wilkinson, who ensconced her in his Parisian mansion along with his Joshua Reynolds paintings, renaissance bronzes, and Louis IV furniture. They lived happily ever after." [David S. Shields]

Donegan, Nellie:

(c.1870 - 1945) Nellie Donegan performed in the Ziegfeld musical comedy A Parisian Model (1907-1908).

Biographical info with many thanks to grapefruitmoongallery for providing the incredible research from the Circus History message board!:

Nellie Donegan is reported as being born about 1870 in White [County?], Indiana. After her death, her birthplace was also given as far away Melbourne, Australia. She had a public roller skating career that started by 1903 and was advertised in national publications by 1907. Her father reportedly operated a large rink in her hometown of Rensselaer, Indiana, though the circa 1907-1910 published lists make no reference to it. It likely existed during the earlier skating craze.

She appeared in 1907 under the "personal direction" of Earle Reynolds, with a contact address given as 1440 Broadway, New York. Nellie also appeared in the January 6 to 25, 1908 production of "A Parisian Model," appearing as "Henriette." Thereafter they did exhibition skating together, 1909-1916. In 1912 it was [Earle] Reynolds and [Nellie] Donegan and they were booked by Pat Casey of New York. "Decorative Dancing" was their roller skating forte.

The second boom in roller skating had taken place about 1906-1909, and then it went into another decline. Skating exhibitions by Nellie can be found through 1912. Nellie was hired by Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish, a wealthy man's wife, to present a program in her private ballroom. The couple's image as paired skaters was on the cover of the 1915 sheet music "The Skating Waltzes," published by Charles K. Harris. At the time they were performing in the Winter Garden in "The World of Pleasure." The couple is also mentioned in the book "Vaudeville, From the Honky Tonks to the Palace" as being roller and ice skaters.

Reynolds and Donegan trained many skaters in a "garage gym" in Rensselaer. A Reynolds Donegan Company did exhibition skating on fairgrounds, in vaudeville, etc., in 1918, 1919, 1922, 1923, 1925, 1930 and 1939 and presumably other years. It would seem that their base was in Indiana, from which they traveled around the country doing exhibition work. If their birth years are accurate [Earle Reynolds, October 28, 1868], they were still on skates when approaching 70 years of age, quite an achievement.

Nellie appeared as a ballet girl in the Ringling circus spectacle "Jerusalem and the Crusades," definitely in 1903, possibly also in 1904, the second year of the production. It was apparently at that time that she came to know Edith [Mrs. Charles] Ringling, who later arranged to have her son, Robert Ringling, hire Reynolds and Donegan for Ringling-Barnum. Donegan and Reynolds were with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey in 1943-1944 as skaters. Nellie gained some incidental fame as a steam calliope player between 1943 and 1945. She's the only Ziegfeld girl to have played the calliope, as far as I know. Donegan and Reynolds also managed an act as early as 1941 called "Six Pyramid Girls." They were later booked on RBBB, comprised largely girls from Rensselaer. A problem was that they were all pretty and had to be replaced when they found a beau and got married.

Reynolds and Donegan were married at White [County?], Indiana on August 12, 1913 [also given as 1908]. [Family Search website] They had twin daughters, or step-daughters, Helen and Maude, who were also skaters. Maudie had a daughter, Patricia, who was also taught skating. Nellie died in October 1945 [interred October 31], more than a year and a half after the 1944 disaster. Earle Reynolds died October 1, 1954, age 85, at Home Hospital in Lafayette, Indiana [interred October 4]. They're both buried at the Weston Cemetery in Rensselaer, Indiana. Obituaries were printed for both of them in "Billboard," November 10, 1945, page 42 and October 9, 1954, page 80. There was surely coverage in the local newspapers on their passing as few in Rensselaer likely had such illustrious careers performing before the public. Reynolds' obituary relates that he had two step-daughters, Mrs. Francis Le Maire of New York and Mrs. Helen King of Rensselaer, and grandchildren.


Donna (Medrano and Donna), Donna Landwehr and Robert Medrano: [ACJ]
