2 -Safurday, Apr. 11, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Kessler twins big hit from iron curtain land loss JOSEFHINE SSAH SocMr Editor By GAY PAULEY UPt Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI)-Patrons o! a posh New York nitery see, double these days—even on gerale. ' For the supper club is featuring the Kessler twins, Alice and Ellen, look-alike blonde beauties from behind the Iron Curtain who've captured European audiences with their staging and dancing. Now, they're out to do the same is the United States. "We were in America to do some television last year," said one of the pair. "And we did a lot of sight-seeing. But tliis is our nightclub debut here." The two, who frequently talk as one, currently are at the Plaza Hotel's Persian Room. Then at the end of April, they're set for Chicago and New Orleans, they said. Of dates in other cities, they were not sure because they must be in London in late May and June for more television. Flight to West • The niglitclub act, rare in show business, got started because the twins could not break into the operatic ballet they wanted. In an interview, they explamed that their father, Paul, an engineer, had fled Leipzig in 1950 with plans to bring his family from East Germany later. The sisters, who had been studying ballet nith the Leipzig Opera Co., jomed their father simply by getting visas in a city other than their home town for a vacation visit m\h him. He had settled in Dusseldorf, West Germany. "We just never went back," said Ellen Kessler. That was in 1952 and the twins were 15. When they didn't return, poUce repeatedly questioned their another. But authorities didn't stop her two months later when she quietly boarded a tram for West Berlin, for a reunion with her family. it was easier to get to Berlm then," said EUen. "We got out before the walL" When, the twins couldn't] break into operatic ballet in Dusseldorf, they decided to try Inightchibs. Dusseldorf s Palladi um.hired them and it was there that Pierre-Louis Guerin, director of the famous Lido in Paris spotted, them. "He takes a world tour every year looking for talent," said Elllen: "I guess we stood out because we were taller than the other girls in the show." They stayed'at the Lido five years while their career eX' pandfA into motion pictures in Italy ;ind Germany, mto model­ ling |pr Ellen, the French Mag azine, .and into television and recording. Parsonilities Differ The twins look so much and seem so-much alike at first you'd call'them identical, but they saytS they're not. They're between 120 and 125, complete sentences for each oth<»r, have the same tastes m clothing—lor. offstage, sweaters and skirts "because we have to dress up so much for our act" "But we have different characters," said EUen. "I'm the clown." "I'm the sentimental, serious one." said Alice. Constantly together otherwise, they've never double-dated because "it just never interested us."
