The Ross Sisters
The Ross Sisters were a trio of female sibling dancers consisting of Aggie Ross, Elmira Ross, and Maggie Ross (whose real names were Veda Victoria, Dixie Jewel and Betsy Ann Ross). The Ross Sisters performed as a 3-part harmony trio wherein they also danced and did acrobatics and contortionism. Their public attention peaked during the 1940s, during which they were featured prominently in the film Broadway Rhythm. This footage has since gained popularity on YouTube. This clip also appears in the compilation film That's Entertainment! III (1994).
Although millions have seen it, some may have missed it.
This is really a very good example of the innocence of the 1940's.
It is also an amazing display of body contortion. What are the odds that three sisters would all be as flexible as this.
