(May 23, 1887-Dec 6, 1958) Despite the name, Jose Collins was very much a female. She performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1913.

Josephine Charlotte Collins or Josephine Charlotte Cooney, also known as Josephine Charlotte Chatfield, Lady Robert Innes-Ker and Josephine Charlotte Kirkland, was best known as Jose Collins, an English actress and singer celebrated for her performances in musical comedies and early motion pictures.

Jose got her start as a child performer and by age 17 she had appeared in both pantomimes and music halls as a singer and actress. She made her London West End debut in a principle role in The Antelope (1908). On Broadway, she appeared in Vera Violetta (1911), The Merry Countess (1912) and (sharing a duet with Al Jolson) The Whirl Of Society (1912) among others. Her revue appearances included The Ziegfeld Follies (1913) and The Passing Show (1914). She also starred in The Happy Day in London and Alone At Last on Broadway in 1916.

To great acclaim, Jose played the title role of Teresa, the gypsy bandit maid, in the hit musical The Maid Of The Mountains (1917) and as a result became known by the nickname "Maid Of The Mountains." In that show, she introduced the songs "Love Will Find A Way" and "A Paradise For Two."

She spent the remainder of her career in revues, variety, and non-musical roles as well as in films. Her only musical film was Facing The Music (1933).

Cowl, Jane: [ACJ]

ibdb.com

imdb.com

(December 14, 1884 - June 22, 1950) Jane Cowl was one of the finest stage actresses of her time. She eventually found her way onto the silver screen in 1915 in Garden of Lies. She appeared (and became a playwright) on Broadway from 1903-1947. She penned five plays between 1918 and 1941. Cowl also wrote with Jane Murfin under the pseudonym Alan Langdon Martin.

She originated the role of Dolly Levi on Broadway in 1938, when Dolly was just a minor character in Thorton Wilder's original play "The Merchant of Yonkers." Seventeen years later, Wilder reworked the play as "The Matchmaker" with Mrs. Levi as the main character and that became the source of the musical "Hello, Dolly!". In 1943, 28 years after her second film, Jane returned to the big screen with a small role in Stage Door Canteen. Years later, in 1949, she was in Once More, My Darling. After 1950's The Secret Fury, Jane realized she had cancer. She died on June 22, 1950 in Santa Monica, California. She was 67 years old. Her last film, Payment on Demand (1951), was released the following year.

Crawford, Joan: [not Joan, Dorothy Sebastian by ACJ]

Wikipedia: Ziegfeld Girl

Dr. Macro's Annex - Dorothy Sebastian, not Joan Crawford

That image you may think is Joan Crawford is actually Dorothy Sebastian (Thanks go to the Joan Crawford Webmistress who wrote to Dr. Macro who passed the correct info on to me). To date, I have never come across any images of Joan Crawford by Alfred Cheney Johnston. According to Wikipedia, Crawford was turned down for the Ziegfelds. None of her biographies state that she was ever in them though they cover her early life in detail. I hope this puts to rest the idea that she was in the Ziegfeld Follies in her early life.
