I was inspired to that thought by this picture
When? Where? Are they stage chorines or filmland lasses photographed outside the studio door? As Noel Coward sang-spoke 'I wonder what happened to [her]'.
This one is easier to date. London publicity picture for probably the Windmill ... chorus of four?
I think this one might be from a moving picture. The 'scenery' looks rather permanent for a stage show
This Mancunian lot may be the youngest ...
New York Turnverein
No idea who this bunch of bored scrubbers are ..
These lasses are from the world of "revue". These two lots are prom Paramount Pictures stage shows, groups of girls who were used for decoration when a film needed some background performance or other
And this one is from a wilfully titillating show staged by Mons André Lasky (Andrei Laski from Goshinin) as 'The French revue' for the vaudeville circuits. As the critic noted it was 'more revue than French'. Just another girlie variety show.
. This cute group is from Earl Carroll's 1916 West Coast musical Canary Cottage ... which went on from its San Diego beginnings to showings in New York and Australia. I see this photo is by an SF/LA house, so I imagine this is the original cast.
