Little Johnnie Lucille (real name of the actress) was ill with rickets, so at least somehow to reduce this ailment, the parents gave their daughter to dance classes. Ann fulfilled her childhood dream and played several performances on Broadway. Noteworthy, in the late 1940s, Ann Miller introduced pantyhose into everyday life. Thus, she solved the problem of constantly tearing stockings during the dance performance. Traditionally, stockings were sewn to the underwear of a dancer, and if even one stocking torn, the dancer had to completely change the whole design. That’s why Miller asked for herself to make pantyhose, which could easily be replaced with another pair, if torn.
