SID GRAUMAN PROLOGUE


Tuesday, September 5, 1933

Variety House Reviews - Chinese, L. A. - Hollywood, Aug 29.

There's a flock of class in Sid Grauman's prolog to "Dinner at Eight." but with a picture that runs more than two hours, embellished by a Pete Smith short and a Mickey Mouse cartoon, the stage end of the program needs considerable cutting. Opening night, the performance (prolog and pic) started at 9:10, broke at 1:15 a. m., and there were no holdups.

Prolog is in two sections. First half represents entertainment of the 90's, latter half is modern theatre. Setting for the first part is similar to the piece used by Fred Karno in his "Night in an English Music Hall" with occupied boxes on either side of the stage. Orchestra in the pit all wear handlebar muffs, indulge in musical renditions of the period including 'Over the Waves' as a trumpet solo, triple tongueing and everything. Overture got away to a great start with a flock of the names in the audience having their memories jogged by remembering earlier days.

Opening has the line girls doing an olf-fashioned can-can routine in front of an advertising backdrop. Following are the Three Cossacks, skaters. Trio has three fast routines, get the show off to a hot start. Next is the 'Florodora' sextet singing 'Oh, Tell Me Pretty Maiden." This is another laugh getter for the old-timers. Ruth Harrison and Alex Fisher follow in a slow waltz which can be eliminated. Team is to (sic) classyto have it opening with this dance, particularly considering the impressionistic dance in the second half which stops the show cold. Latter effort is the same routine they did with 'Strike Me Pink' in New York last season. Class performers, they should do something in pictures while on the Coast.

Radio Rubes next. Quartete slow to start, build to a strong finish with their hoke vocalizing, but stay on too long. Offering should be limited to three numbers. George Pentiss and his Punch and Judy show follow. Prentiss scores with his raspberry bit.

Harrison and Fisher open the second half of the prolog with their 'Manhattan Serenade'' Working in white silk costumes before a black cyc, they exude class from start to finish. Kitchen Pirates follow, with a control kick number by the line. Adagio quartet knocks the opening night audience silly with sensational cathes. Gary Leon catcher for the group, rates consideration from pictures.

Buck and Bubbles, next to closing. Colored team indulges in too much stalling, taking the edge off their work. Chatter is hard to hear in the large house with the address system turned off. Later when the loud speakers went into action, lads got a better break, but the stalling continued.

Closing is a 'happy days are here again' affair, a good finish for the prolog with everybody working in a routine similar to 'Forgotten Man' from 'Gold Diggers.'

Cut from 75 minutes to about 50, prolog should be one sock following another. — Call.


An unused ticket from the day before the "Dinner at Eight" premiere; theatre was dark that day, so it is a mystery.



The chorus line for the Grauman Prologue to Dinner at Eight pose on the roof of the theatre.
