Famous Ziegfeld Girls: Original Broadway Stage Girls Roster Index |Page 1|


Plus others (Ziegfelds Chorus Girls, etc) who may have appeared in Ziegfelds show ------- Click here for People portraying Ziegfeld Girls in Film/Movies: [Pg 2]


... There was a difference between the 'Ziegfeld Girl' and the 'Chorus Girl' ... the former was known as a "Clothes Horse" (little or no dancing, just Beauty and Costumes), the later must dance, be attractive and 'Top Beauty' was not a requirement. Out of upwards of 500 girls who auditioned for these shows, between the ages of 16 to 21, only 20 would make it and that came down to how good they could dance in the end. By the age of 21, unless the chorus girl worked her way out of the chorus line or had achieved some recognition somewhere such as in Vaudeville, Films or a Specialty Act, etcetera, they were done¹. We are listing them both here on these pages. Generally, but not always, the more famous ones were or became Ziegfeld Girls.
