The Whirl of New York
by David for group historicalziegfeld Jul 8, 2012

Gustav Kerker in Spring of 1921 had the idea of rewriting and restating his hit musical Belle of New York (orig. 1896), updating plot, dialogue, and songs. In order indicate that he was not offering a revival, so much as a renovation his changes were radical. Dorothy Ward, who could sing and dance, had a prominent spot in the proceedings. And she contributed greatly to the show's going 24 over the century mark in terms of its viewing. Apeda had the contract for the portraits, but Luther White and others impinged on the monopoly.
