The American actress, Susan Fleming got her big break in the Ziegfeld Follies stage show, leading to her Hollywood career. The New Yorker joined the beautiful Ziegfeld girls, who mixed Broadway and Vaudeville variety, with some of the great names of the era joining the ranks along the way.

Her best-known role was as the leading lady in Million Dollar Legs (1932) earning her the nickname “Girl With The Million Dollar Legs”, famously insuring her legs for a million dollars as part of a stunt to promote the film.
