Icons of the Jazz Age, the delectable dancing Dollies were stars of cafe society on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1920s. Gary Chapman reveals the untold 'rags to riches' story of identical twins Jenny and Rosie, set against the glittering backdrop of pre-war high society in America and Europe. Jenny and Rosie Dolly Deutsch were born in Hungary in 1892 and moved to America at the age of twelve, where they began making their living as entertainers in big shows. They were close friends of the elite of Broadway and Hollywood - including Mary Pickford and Irving Berlin - and became the essential prerequisite of any celebrity social gathering. Their talent, their celebrity and their lavish loves and lifestyle enchanted generations and they became models for the 'New Woman' of the liberated 1920s. But lurking behind their glamorous story of fame, fortune, mistaken identity, millionaires, love and sisterly devotion is another tale of rivalry, duplicity and tragedy. "The Delectable Dollies is Some like it Hot" mixed with essence of Hello! - a dizzying cocktail of delight.
