Video Friday!

Check out this footage of Marlene Dietrich as ringleader at a benefit in 1955. The benefit was held on the opening night of the Ringling bros. show at Madison Square Garden and boasted a parade of stars. Jimmy Stewart, Marilyn Monroe, Sonja Henie and more all represented each month of the year in the parade. And, super fun fact, my tap dance teacher was the baton twirler in that circus! How cool is that?
