~Biography~
According to her publicity, Shannon Day had brown hair and deep blue eyes. Of course, the color of
her eyes -- a major attraction when she was a Ziegfeld showgirl -- was lost to cinema audiences, who
only saw this ravishing beauty in crisp black and white in such lavish surroundings as Cecil B.
DeMille's Forbidden Fruit (1921) and The Affairs of Anatol (1922). She didn't have much to do in
either -- the stars were Agnes Ayres and Gloria Swanson and neither took any prisoners -- but she
certainly was a sight to behold. A veteran of both the Follies and Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolic, Day had
begun her screen career in 1920 and ended it with Hotel Variety (1933), a low-budget revue in which
she appeared with vaudeville headliners such as Hal Skelly and the notorious Sally Rand.
