Letu- ps Belle did remarkably well for P opening act and brought to the wre a girl of highly engaging per- sonality in Xancy Belle. No one with as much youthful magnetism has been around in a month. Doro- thy Wahl was an instantaneous success, gauging her matter to Pal- ace requirements. Sebastian and Myra Sisters fur- nished the only miscue, but could be excused because of the sparkle ahead and following. Chester Spen- cer and Lola Williams were im- mense. The pair just toyed with lbs crowd and rocked it almost at will. Their reception was vocifer- ous. Lola Williams is looking splen- did after her illness.

Gordon, here also in the pictures, drew heav- ily from the ranks of movie fans. Her act, "Lullaby," by Edgar Allan Woolf, while pretty turgid with emotion, scored moderately. She is rivaled in Philly by Yvette Rugel, a local product, whose mixture of popular and classical was well re- ceived. Bert Levy's sketching made its annual—or semi-annual—appeal, and other acts on a well balanced bill included The Randalls, sharp- shooters; Yvette, supported by Ed- die Cooke and Kino Clark in "A Smart Production," a musical offer- ing; Claudia Coleman, impersona- tor; Lou Clayton and Cliff Edwards, with some appropriate chatter; Alex Ruloff and Shura Rulowa, whose Russian ballet effects are new her? and went big, and Millard and Mar- lin in a sketch that needs some pruning, but has its points. GLOBE.—"My Tulip Girl," mu- {sical tabloid, has Lorraine Sher- wood and some jazzy tunes to rec- ommend it. Ryan and Lee have a novel skit. Other acts include Lor- imer and Carbrey, dance review; Babe Latour, ccmedienne; Bert Wilcox & Co.. sketch; Friend and Downing, funsters; "Ting-a-Ling," juvenile act, and the Franchisi Brothers, acrobats. ALLEGHENY.—"Hanky Panky," tho headliner, has the usual assort- ment of pretty girls, and consider- able new business. In addition, a well rounded bill includes Adrian, In a surprise act; Frank Whittier, sketch; Mareoni Brothers, accordion experts; Mori-ion's Dogs, and the photoplay, "Harriet and the Piper," with Anita .Stewart. WILLIAM PKNN—De Haven :uid Nice, with n program of com- edy dances, head the hill, which otherwise Includes Anderson and Burl In ;i sketch; Marie Sparrow, songs; Will and Blondy, comedians, and "The Penalty," Goldwyn pic- ture, with Lon Chaney. BROADWAY.—Havcrman's Ani- mals billed to lead. Other acts that went over well include: Morris ajid Townes, songs; Coakley and Dun- IcTy, travesty; Trans'ield Sisters, musicians, and "Midsummer Mad- ness," William De Mille picture. Keith's report an unusually heavy week, the attraction probably being the combination of Vera Gordon, who is playing here In several pic- ture houses, and Yvette Rugel, a local girl.
