Golden Horseshoe Revue 1955

Before Betty Taylor took the role of Slue Foot Sue, Judy Marsh was the singing and dancing saloon owner. This is a nice early image in color of Judy and the Golden Horseshoe Girls dancing the Can Can on stage. The early program lists the girls as Shirley Towers, Gloria Watson, Glenda Guilfoyle and Susan Reed. All of the box seats are filled, even the ones on the second story that are now closed. If you look closely at the tables you will see the card tent menus which featured Pepsi and Frito Lay chips. Also all the cups are marked Pepsi. This image came from the collection of the stage manager Ralph Adams.

BEAUTIFUL shot! Thanks for posting - this is still one of my favorite places in the park, and I love it when I snag a box seat!

I wonder when Coke stepped in. The soft drink contracts may have been different back then. Maybe back then Coke and Pepsi lived in Disneyland in harmony...

Coke became the sole soft drink provider in 1982 in order to help pay for EPCOT center. In the 1950s Coke and Pepsi did live in harmony (with the exception of the sporting contests. See my post on Coke Corner.)
