Ziegfeld Follies Of The Air
Glorifying The American Girl
Many of America's great vaudeville stars are featured on the glamorous Follies Of The Air. In excerpts from the 1936 radio premiere, singer and comedienne Fanny Brice salutes the "master showman" Florenz Ziegfeld! Fanny also introduces the mischievous Baby Snooks character for the first time. The fictional story of a Follies theatre usher, and her dreams of stardom, adds drama to the music and comedy.
