After the death of Mary Hilton, the sisters were essentially held captive until 1931 by their new managers, Edith and Meyer Meyers (Mary's daughter and son-in-law). The pair would beat them if they did not wish to perform. When the twins got older, they sued the Meyers for $100,000, dyed their hair blonde, and started an immensely popular vaudeville act called "The Hilton Sisters' Revue."
