    In 1931 Ruth Etting appeared in the very last Follies, which opened at the Ziegfeld Theater on July 1, 1931, and ran through November 21 before heading out on tour, for a total of 164 performances on Broadway.

    Ruth Etting revived a song Nora Bayes made famous in The Follies of 1918, Shine On, Harvest Moon. It became one of her biggest hits, and is so closely associated with Ruth Etting, that her recording is considered the definitive version of this standard.


    In fact, she ended up recording the song again for the film, California Weather in 1933.


    She also sang another standard, You Made Me Love You and while dressed as a Cigarette Girl, sang Cigarettes, Cigars
