Show Notes

In the tradition of the Folies Bergere and the Ziegfeld Follies, cinema had their own ideas to present what was referred to as "cheesecake" back in the mid twentieth century. It was also known as a chorus line. 

Busby Berkeley offered a bevy of beauties in his 1930s Warner Brothers productions. Movie Mogul Samuel Goldwyn created the Goldwyn Girls to many of his light-hearted comedies and musicals of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Among the talent to emerge from this collection of models... Lucille Ball, Betty Grable, Jane Wyman, Ann Southern, Joi Lansing, Virginia Bruce, Marjorie Reynolds and Paulette Goddard.

Host Manny Pacheco provides the audio narrative on this enchanting history of this lost art form. Award-winning journalist Gary Lycan presents his Backlot report, with news and notes that reference Hollywood's past.
