Fanny Brice skyrocketed to fame in the tumultuous 1920s, the era of Ziegfeld, Texas Guinan, speculation, speakeasies and racketeers.

Brice was a Lower East Side Jewish girl who never hid her origins; she was the daughter of a saloonkeeper with a burning desire for stardom fulfilled by Florenz Ziegfeld, who for years featured her in his lavish revues.

But by the the time of her death in 1951 she was known better for her "Baby Snooks" radio characterizations and her occasional appearances in films.

She was well known for singing the song "My Man" and for her appearances in "Be Yourself," "The Great Ziegfeld," "Everybody Sing" and "Ziegfeld Follies."
