The introduction discusses the myths surrounding Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. and the many conflicting impressions people had—and still have—about him. Commentary from his friends, employees, and critics reveals his multifaceted character. The introduction sets the tone for the entire book and establishes its primary argument: Ziegfeld the man must be separated from Ziegfeld the myth.

Keywords:   Billie Burke, Ziegfeld Follies, Eddie Cantor, Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.
