Golddiggers See Below!

       1) These famous Golddiggers were originally basically a musical stock company of female dancers who appeared in many musicals. These were not the original Gold Diggers of Broadway fame, but rather the girls who portrayed them in the movies.

    Many of these ladies danced as the Goldwyn and Ziegfeld Girls as well as other musicals and movies in the 1920s to 1940s. They were sometimes listed as "Models, Showgirls or Chorus Girls."

         2)  During the early 1970's NBC hosted the Dean Martin Variety Show and would feature the Dean Martin Gold Diggers ( Debuted in 1965 as Dean's Girls.) They were not as famous as some in the movie version Golddiggers above, but gained alot of fame during their time.

    They started out in 1965 and totaled over forty in number through time, but only ten or twelve would perform and by 1970 there were no originals left in the line up. In 1971 they would become syndicated and receive there own half hour Television show which lasted till 1973.
