Description: 

The number of girls named Marilyn rose exponentially in the 1920s and early 30s in homage to Marilyn Miller, one of the era's most popular Broadway stars. An actress, dancer and singer, she was a daughter of vaudeville-performing parents who incorporated her into their family act when she was 5 years old. Miller joined the Ziegfeld Follies, cemented her fame by singing "Look for the Silver Lining" in the musical comedy "Sally", and starred in the 1925 hit "Sunny" for Ziegfeld rival Charles Dillingham. Two of her three film appearances came in adaptations of those shows. She is shown here looking as delicate in dress as the flowers she holds, her gaze turned down and away with eyes hidden beneath the brim of her hat.
