Elaine Lank Ziegfeld Showgirl by DeBarron_profdash 6 September 2013


There are Ziegfeld girls whose lives are entire blanks whom just on the basis of the personality in their portraits you wished you knew. Saucy Elaine Lank leads the list of the persons in the later shows for me. She was in the ensemble in Three Musketeers, followed that with a year on Broadway playing in the hit Ray Henderson Buddy DeSilva "Follow Thru", then became a female crooner on the NBC red network. On radio she sang with the Merry Makers and other ensembles. She also fell in love with and married Donald Howard, another radio singer. They moved to the West Coast in the early 1930s, Elaine had a marginal screen career, and Donald Howard slipped into alcoholism. In 1935 she sued for divorce claiming non-support and intemperance. She then disappears from the record. Alas. These portraits by Paul Barron of DeBarron Studio bristle with vitality. Profdash
