"Martha Mansfield, who died at age 23 from burns suffered when her antebellum costume caught fire from a careless smoker’s match while filming “The Warrens of Virginia” (1924), was born Martha Schmidt in Mansfield, Ohio. She took the name of her home town as her stage name. After her mother moved her to New York she became a model. Her good looks got her parts in several Max Linder comedy shorts shot in New York in 1917. She was 18 when Florenz Ziegfeld engaged her for the 1918 Follies. Her dark beauty attracted immediate attention. She was a favorite and daring photographers’ model in New York and Hollywood, posing nude for Alfred Cheney Johnston and Edwin Bower Hesser among others. After the 1919 Follies she signed a Hollywood contract, won notice for her role in Barrymore’s “Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde,” and starred in series of hit films, most notably “The Perfect Lover.”" [David S.

Martin, Vivian: [ACJ]

Wikipedia

ibdb.com

imdb.com

(July 22, 1893 - March 16, 1987) Vivian Martin was an American stage and silent film actress.

"Vivian Martin (1893-1987), successful stage and film actress, first appeared on Broadway in 1903 as a ten year old playing in a revival of “Little Lord Fauntleroy.” Her serious career did not commence until 1911 when George Cohen cast her in an ingénue role in “The Only Son.” She then appeared in two hits—“Officer 666” and “Stop Thief”. Yet two less successful productions proved more prophetic in terms of the direction of her portrayals. 1913’s “The Marriage Game” and 1914’s “The High Cost of Loving” showed off Martin’s talent for courtship and marriage plots. She was particularly good at the gestures of romance and was grabbed by the silent movie companies in 1914 who for five years in thirty-seven releases cast her as a tender hearted girl. In 1920 she was allowed to be married and endure the joys and travails of that institution. The new married Vivian Martin appeared in four movies, whose quality suggested that Martin might carry a production. Broadway producers again became interested in her, and she was cast in eight marriage dramas from 1921’s “Just Married” to 1929’s “Marry the Man.” Unfortunately all except 1926’s “Puppy Love” bombed."

For the next fourteen years she worked in vaudeville and dinner clubs, occasionally filling out the ranks of revue choruses for Jake Schubert and Earl Carroll. Her terpsichorean skills were never sufficient to achieve featured status, but her crisp blonde bangs had enough eye appeal to supply stage variety in large scenes." [David S. Shields]

"Florenz Ziegfeld imported Mlle. Mauresette from the Parisian music halls to grace the 1917 edition of the Follies.

Milburn, Mary: [ACJ]

ibdb.com

Mary Milburn performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1921.

"“Pleasant-faced” Mary Milburn was also pleasant voiced, and it was her singing ability that made her a fixture in Broadway revues and musicals in the 1920s. She reminded reviewers of the Irish songstress Christie MacDonald who starred on broadway from the 1890s to 1910s. MacDonald had made a sensation in Victor Herbert’s “Sweetheart.” Milburn would first receive notice for her art in the Victor Herbert’s 1920 musical, “The Girl in the Spotlight.” Ziegfeld contracted her for the Follies of 1921. She followed the Follies with “Molly Darling,” worked as a headliner in vaudeville for four years before returning to Broadway in 1926’s “Sweetheart Time”. In 1926-27 she appeared in the Wintergarden revue, “Gay Paree.” Unfortunately, her style of singing was beginning to sound antiquated by the end of the decade. Her theatrical career took a cropper in 1929 when Vivian Hart replaced her as lead in “The Silver Swan” when the operetta was in rehearsal." [David S. Shields]

"Vera Milton, the English born Showgirl who became a staple in Broadway reporters’ columns for her malapropisms during the late 1920s and 30s, had a much more prominent life in print than on the stage. She came to America in 1927, was immediately engaged in Earl Carroll’s Vanities of 1928, appeared in Carroll’s Sketch Book, and finally in Ziegfeld’s Follies of 1931. A dancer, she lacked the talent to become a lead, but found that her wit could win her column space, so played “The Dumb Blonde” and won a following." [David S. Shields]

Dr. Macro's Annex (pic 01)

(July 4, 1904 - September 9, 1969) Catherine Moylan performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1927 and in Ziegfeld's 1928-1929 Broadway production of Whoopee.

"Catherine Moylan, a Texan who defeated Joan Blondell in the Miss Dallas pageant and then went on to win the Miss Universe title, was one of Ziegfeld’s glorified girls throughout the latter 1920s, adorning the stage in a number of revues, most notably Whoopee in 1929. Noting the success in movies of her pageant runner-up, Moylan departed for Hollywood in 1930 and immediately secured the part of a mannequin in “Our Blushing Brides.” This was followed up by the part of Martha, the snooty gal pal, in “Love in the Rough.” Failing to land roles other than as eye candy, she returned to home to Texas, married, and raised a family. A rather daring model for Alfred Cheney Johnston, she was not shy about dressing up or doing without dresses altogether." [David S. Shields]

Mulhall, Marjorie: [ACJ]

"For Alfred Cheney Johnston, Marjorie Mulhall seemed a dark Madonna: "She poses for many of my pictures. She is about five feet, seven inches tall, has dark brown hair and dark eyes that are very beautiful in expression. Her skin is rich in coloring, with that sunkissed hue so many girls try to attain by exposing themselves to the elements. . . . With her oval face and beautifully shaped ears, like Miss Mulhall's, the 'Madonna' type of girl looks best with slight 'sideburns,' the hair drawn back to reveal the ears, and caught in a graceful knot at the nape of the neck. Ear rings are always attractive on this type." From ACJ's series on the types of beauty for the NEA Syndicate. Amarillo Globe (Oct 3 1928), p. 11." [David S. Shields]
