Annette Bade ... "Ziegfeld Girl," "the Precise, Nervous, and Intelligent Legs"

Annette's father died when she was young, sometime between... 1905 and 1910. She would make her professional debut in 'the Century Girl' (1916) which Ziegfeld, of course, noticed her. Annette's legs were mentioned to be one of the best of Ziegfelds girls and her personality was very cheerful. She was on the cover of the 5/1921 Tatler Magazine and would do about ten or so stage performances in her career. She would perform until about 1923 to raise her daughter.

Her daughter, Anne Mace, would grow up to be a showgirl as well, she was blonde and six foot three inches tall ... she headlined in Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe at age 18 in 1941¹ and was coached by her mother (Anne married LT. Al Dobbs in 1943.) Annette died in September of 1975 in Florida.
