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-1940s.
They were sometimes listed as "Models, Showgirls or Chorus
Dean Martins Gold
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.
