This chapter reveals the fate of Ziegfeld’s greatest stars, including Lillian Lorraine, Fanny Brice, and Eddie Cantor. The chapter then returns to Burke and describes her humble lifestyle in her later years. Among other things, she helps create the Ziegfeld Club, which aids ex–Ziegfeld girls who, like Lillian Lorraine, have fallen on hard times. After Burke’s passing, the Ziegfeld legacy almost disappears with the demolition of the Ziegfeld Theatre and Burkeley Crest. Burke’s and Ziegfeld’s remains were finally reunited at Kenisco Cemetery in Westchester County, New York.

Keywords:   Fanny Brice, Eddie Cantor, Lillian Lorraine, Ziegfeld Club, Irving Berlin, Burkeley Crest
