Germaine Mitty to appear in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1921, Globe Theatre, New York ‘Germaine Mitty, the sensational Parisian musical comedy actress, used to prove to her Parisian audiences that her costume could be hidden in the palm of her hand. She removed it on the stage and showed them how it was done. She will be the principal attraction in the new Ziegfeld follies show and New Yorkers are wondering if she is going to show them, too.’
(The Fort Wayne News and Sentinel, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Monday, 30 May 1921, p. 6d)
