The two dancers in the Lullaby of Broadway-number


The dancing couple in the "Lullaby of Broadway"-musical-number are Ramon Reachi(1903-1990) and his wife Renita Reachi(1913-1978).
Ramon's former dancing partner and wife was "Rosita",but at the time of the filming of Gold diggers of 1935,the couple had divorced and the dancing-team had split up.
Ramon's new dancing partner and wife was Renita.
Warner bros made a mistake when they billed the dancing team as "Ramon and Rosita".
The former Rosita started a lawsuit against Warners,because she wasn't in the picture,but her name was mentioned as one of the cast-members.
