Who was the most famous flapper of the 1920s? – Fringe Flapper Dress

The most famous flapper of the 1920s? Mary Ward was a flapper and entertainer and one of her famous routines was for the TV show “Little Women” — in which she had a few lines, including, “It’s a boy!”

Mary was always the youngest girl on her show, but had the stage presence of an adult. The popularity of her was such that her act was broadcast in over 200 countries all over the world before it ended in 1926 (the show was later turned into a movie directed by Robert Benchley). Mary was a star in her own right. Her own autobiography was published on October 26, 1926, the year after “Little Women” was broadcast. I know I saw it on opening weekend at the theater.

What did Ward look like before she met Mimi?

She had a very feminine and elegant look, and would never have looked out of place in New York City if she were a little older. Mary Ward was one of the most beautiful women of her generation. She was also a devout Christian.

Her most famous “little” thing to say on the show was “God save the queen.” What led to the “little” remark?

Ward told Mimi in a series of phone calls in 1923 and 1924 that she would have a daughter in the fall. Later that year, Ward met Mary Lou Retton and Mimi was born on September 27, 1924.
