The Ross Sisters were a trio of female sibling dancers consisting of Aggie Ross, Elmira Ross, and Maggie Ross (whose real names were Veda Victoria, b.11/08/1927, Dixie Jewel, b.08/09/1929, and Betsy Ann Ross, b. 06/20/1926).
The Ross Sisters performed as a 3-part harmony trio wherein they also danced and did acrobatics and contortionism. Their public attention peaked during the 1940s, during which they were featured prominently in the film Broadway Rhythm. This clip also appears in the compilation film That's Entertainment! III (1994).
The Ross Sisters were born in West Texas, to Charles Adolphus and Veda Cordelia Ross. Shortly after they made "Broadway Rhythm," they moved to Europe where they appeared in "Piccadilly Hayride," a post-war London stage revue that ran from 1946 to 1948. They also recorded "Five Minutes More," a song later covered by Frank Sinatra.
All three sisters eventually got married and became even more famous as Mrs. e4bannan, Mrs. Sloop and Mrs. Papapang.
