Girls of the Ziegfeld Follies

Florence (Flo') Ziegfeld Jr. - Sometimes referred to as the man who loved women or Glorifier of the American woman was the son of Dr Florence Ziegfeld (President and Founder of the Chicago Musical College). Florence junior was a rather frail child and had no interest in studying music. Whether for health reasons or to save his parents embarrassment he was sent to a Wyoming cattle ranch. Away from parental control, the young Ziegfeld developed his flamboyant, independant style and a talent for shooting.
While visiting a Wild West show, he was able to out-shoot the legendary Annie Oakley. Buffalo Bill offered to hire him on the spot. Needless to say his parents weren't amused.
