Brox Sisters sing "Falling in Love Again"

The Brox Sisters are one of the many Jazz Age musical acts included on RadioLulu, the online radio station of the Louise Brooks Society. The trio of singing sisters can be heard performing a medley of songs from the Ziegfeld Follies of 1927, in which they starred along with Eddie Cantor (who can also be heard on the station). The sister act are pictured below tuning into RadioLulu using a special trans-dimensional receiver able to pick-up digital signals across time and space.

The Brox Sisters were among the earliest artists to appear on Vitaphone sound shorts in the late 1920s. There are a number of video clips of the act on YouTube. Here is a clip of the trio singing "Falling in Love Again" from the film short Hollywood on Parade (1932). It has a clever "special effect."
