    M/S of theatre impresario Florenz Ziegfeld sitting at a desk; a beautiful dark-haired girl in an evening dress stands beside him. He introduces her as Grace Moore, of the present 'Follies' show. C/U of the glamorous Grace - she really is a stunner! The camera tilts down and up to show us her figure as Mr Ziegfeld says he considers her the most beautiful brunette in the world today.

    Note: I do not think this is Grace Moore the opera singer.
