Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Beryl Wallace (c. 1909 - June 17, 1948) was an American singer, dancer and actress. Born Beryl Heischuber in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, New York, she was the eldest of nine children of working class Jewish immigrants from Austria. Pursuing a dancing career, she was in her teens when she saw a casting call advertisement in the newspaper and landed a role in the 1928 Earl Carroll Broadway theatre production of Vanities that was billed as having the "most beautiful girls in the world." Beryl Heischuber adopted the last name "Wallace" as part of her stage name and went on to appear in another six similar such risqu productions that featured scanty costumes for the female performers and full nudity for the first time on Broadway.show more
