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

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're working with?
    I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    It's in fact very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I just use internet for that reason, and get the
    latest information.

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
