The music industry christened them the “Chinese Andrews Sisters.”

Tap dancer Ann Miller dubbed them the “Kimmies.”

Broadway impresario George White billed them as “two sets of twins — two tall and two short.”

Print media described them as “scandalizing,” “those Chinese glamour girls” and, paradoxically, “sort o’ homespun.”

One newspaper accused them of wrecking Rudyard Kipling’s theory that “East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.”

They are Alice, Maggie, Jenée and Bubbles — the four swing-singing Kim Loo Sisters.

And this is their story — in their own words, songs, photos and movies — just to set the record straight.
