The Ross Sisters | Amazing Contortionists

The Ross Sisters (Aggie, Maggie, and Elmira) were singing acrobatic contortionist triplets who rose to brief fame in the 1940s. The scene above is from a 1944 MGM musical entitled “Broadway Rhythm.” The term “solid” was period slang for “excellent” ... watch beyond the first minute of the video to see the rather remarkable athleticism of these young ladies.
Very bend-y.
