I was surprised at no mention of the Marx Brothers, but then I check my facts

"I'll say she is," the Marx Brothers' Broadway debut, didn't come out until 1924, a bit too early for this 1920 publication.

Oh, well.

Not that this is relevant to the main entry, but my parents were born in 1920. They would not have read this when it first came out.

I can think of only two famous performers who might have been active in 1920: Will Rodgers and Fanny Brice. Brice was in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1920. Rodgers may or may not have been. Those are the breaks.

Anyway, thanks for the high level of snark.smiley - smiley
