  • Short Summary

    Good comedy "Apache" routine and some fantastic costumes in these Cochran revue extracts.

  • Description

    Mr C.B. Cochran's famous "Palace" London production " The Music Box" Revue.

    Renie Riano and Solly Ward perform a satire on modern dancing. Comedy dance routine in front of a large curtain. At one stage Solly throws Renie on the ground as if in an Apache routine. He then pulls her up by a tassel on her dress which comes off in his hand.

    There is a "Legend of the Pearl" routine featuring Ethelind Terry. Chorus girls in very elaborate costumes parade in front of an ornate set. A silver curtain is drawn over the scene.

    Note: Jessie Matthews made one of her first stage appearances in this show. Don't think she appears in the dance sequence shown here though. The outfits in the Legend of the Pearl routine are absolutely fabulous!
