When you look back on the brightest stars of vaudeville's heyday, no one shines brighter than Lillian Russell. The woman was a beloved actress and singer who was as well known for her extravagance and paramours as she was for her stage accomplishments. She would have been in her early 50s in this surviving 16-second clip from "How to Live 100 Years," but even here you can see what an exceptional beauty she was.
