Quinn, Rosie: [ACJ]

ibdb.com

Rosie Quinn performed on Broadway from 1915-1921.

"Because of the vast dimension of the Wintergarden Theater, success on stage required a physical expansiveness of gesture. Stars who developed there, such as Rosie Quinn, cultivated a broad physical style of stage gesture and dancing. Quinn made her mark in “The Passing Show of 1917,” Jake Schubert’s answer to Ziegfeld’s revues, as a loose-limbed dancer-Showgirl. In 1917 Schubert attempted to arrange that his stable of actresses perform sideline in the movies with his taking part of the proceeds. Quinn was one of the named sideliners. The plan reveals the condescension of the Broadway producer to photoplays and did not come to pass. In 1918 she was featured in the “Midnight Whirl,” permitting the front table millionaires to button up her blouse while she sang “Button Me Up the Back.” (Apparently she had adapted to performance in close quarters.) She worked briefly in the 1919 flop “Hello, Alexander,” before gravitating to the revues where her sass, fake French accent, and willingness to ware daring costumes worked to best effect. She and Tot Qualters vied to be the naughtiest lady in “The Century Revue.” Her highlights included singing “A Mouthful of Kisses” and dancing “The Fig Leaf Number.”" [David S. Shields]

According to the theatre program, Vie Quinn performed "The Sidewalks of New York" with Frank Farnum in the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of 1921 (April 11 edition). There is a Viola Quinn on ibdb that seems to fit her profile but no Vie Quinn, only the Vie Quinn on imdb in Alice in Wonderland in 1931.
