Inspired by the Parisian Folies Bergère, Florenz Ziegfeld and his wife Anna Held, founded the Ziegfeld Follies in New York, in 1907. The Follies produced lavish revues mingling the aesthetic of top Broadway shows and vaudeville variety. The productions featured beautiful chorus girls, the Ziegfeld Girls, who sang and dance, adorned in Erté or Lucile costumes. The Girls who revealed some of the high Hollywood figures of the time such as Marion Davies, Paulette Goddard or Barbara Stanwyck were the objects of popular adoration. When the Follies ended, it became a radio program and rapidly the subject of crowd-pleasing films such The Great Ziegfeld with Myrna Loy, in 1936, Ziegfeld Girl, in 1941, starring Lana Turner and Judy Garland and Ziegfeld Follies, in 1946 featuring Fred Astaire.
