    Chorus girls and stage starlets (250+) vintage oversize photographs. (1890s-1940s) Widely varied and comprehensive archive of (250+) vintage oversize approx. 11 x 14 in. single- and double-weight glamour portraits and scenes of chorus girls and ingénue starlets of vaudeville and the legitimate stage, vast majority of which are from the first few decades of the time frame covered. An impressive array of the essence of female glamour on the stage, both in female beauty specifically, and costumes and choreography in general. A few of the many dozens of productions represented here include: Klaw and Erlanger's Around the Map, the "lingerie scene" in Flo-Flo, Mlle. Mischief, the "Beauties" in My Lady's Glove, the "Sailor Maids" in The Merry-Go-Round, Kissing Time, Tumble In, His Little Widows, the Winter Garden chorus, All for the Ladies, A Girl from Dixie, the Keene twins in Daffy Dill, Greenwich Village Follies, Present Arms, The Merry Widow, Beth and Betty Dodge in A Night in Venice, the Radio City Music Hall "Rockettes" plus many "Passing Shows", Earl Carroll Vanities, and various Florenz Ziegfeld musical productions, all of which are best remembered for their lavish chorus-girl numbers and, in Ziegfeld's own words, "the most beautiful girls in the world". Condition varies significantly, though majority of the archive rates very good to fine.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
