    The Casting of Three Musketeers called for women with dark hair and olive skin tone. No Ziegfeld Chorus for any other show had such strict constraints in terms of physical features. When Paul Barron of DeBarron Studios was contracted to provide the publicity images for the theatre lobby & for magazines, he chose, interestingly, to present the majority of the cast in modern street clothes, with relatively few costume or drape shots. The was markedly at odds with the Alfred Cheney Johnston aesthetic--Johnston hated modern women's wear. This file supplies the majority of the images released to magazines for publicity purposes by DeBarron for Ziegfeld. There are, however, a set of drape shots of certain of these performers (see the Elaine Link file in this site for one) that remain elusive.
