I wonder if Ziegfeld ever had her pose for nude photos, the way he did with a number of showgirls.

If you'll excuse my idle curiosity, where did you dig up the Snooks pic? It's a doozy...

I wish I could tell you with certainty, but I honestly can't remember, Ivan. I think I got it from a site with other images of OTR/Broadcasting figures, but that's a guess. I've had it a long time.

Thanks again for the MJH info, old sport!

On the old MGM Dawn of Sound laserdisc boxes, there are some great early variety shorts with a female performer (whose name escapes me) who seems to be doing a note-perfect rip-off of Fanny Brice's act, and doing it rather well I might add. "I'd Like to Be a Monkey in a Zoo" is one of the songs that comes to mind, although they also show her singing a straight dramatic number too. But it's the kiddie act that remains memorable.
