“Through These Portals...”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 24, 2004

    “Through These Portals Pass the Most Beautiful Girls in the World.” This was a sign long associated with Earl Carroll and his Broadway Vanities revues, a rival to Florence Ziegfield’s Follies. Signs spoofing this can be seen in Shop Look and Listen (Freleng, 1940): “Beautiful Girls” changed to “Talented Shoplifters”, and in Mouse Menace (Davis, 1946), painted by a mouse above a pseduo-mouse hole to fool the robotic cat.
