From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George White's Scandals were a long-running string of Broadway revues produced by George White that ran from 1919-1939, modelled after the Ziegfeld Follies. The "Scandals" launched the careers of many entertainers, including W.C. Fields, the Three Stooges, Ray Bolger, Helen Morgan, Ethel Merman, Ann Miller, Bert Lahr, and Rudy Vallée. Louise Brooks and Eleanor Powell got their show business start as lavishly dressed (or underdressed) chorus girls strutting to the "Scandal Walk". Much of George Gershwin's early work appeared in the 1920-24 editions of Scandals.

George White's Scandals is also the name of several movies set within the Scandals, all of which focus primarily on the show's acts, with a thin backstage plot stringing them all together. The best known of these was 1934's George White's Scandals written by Jack Yellen, which marked the film debut of Alice Faye.

Notable Flapper-era cartoonist and designer Russell Patterson worked on Broadway on a number of productions in various capacities, including George White's Scandals of 1936 as Scenic Designer. [1]

George White's Scandals of 1920 was featured in an episode of the television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.
