The Dolly Sisters, twins Roszika (Rosie) and Janszieka (Jenny) Deutsch were Vaudeville performers, and Ziegfeld Follies Girls. Jenny died on May 1, 1941, having committed suicide by hanging herself in the shower of her apartment in the Shelton Hotel. Rosie lived long enough to see a biopic made in 1945 of their lives called, inevitably The Dolly Sisters - starring June Haver and Betty Grable - but in 1962 she attempted to follow her sister in suicide. The bid failed. She died on February 1, 1970, succumbing to heart failure.
