Hippodrome, Tonypandy.


Hippodrome, Tonypandy. Perhaps the greatest attraction at the Mid-Rhondda 11 Palais de Plaisir this week is the splendid film illustrating the 20-round fight between Jimmy Britt and Johnny Summers at the National Sporting Club, London, on February 22nd. Every phase of the famous fight is clearly por- trayed, and the interest—where both men were evidently so evenly matched—is sus- tained right up to the very end. Another celebrated picture—the first of a weekly s,orier-is that recording the" Adventures of Nick Carter." All who have read this famous story will know what to expect, and the first instalment this week is a "tour de force of dramatic interest. Chief among the variety turns is a one act sketch, A Daughter of the Revo- lution," presented by Miss Georgette Thierry and her talented company. This playlet is based upon an episode in the French Revolution of 1793, and Miss Thierry, together with Mr. Bernard Liell and Messrs. Thompson and Avery, do not fail to do the piece justice. Dramatic art of a high standard is reached, which can- not truthfully be said of all such repre- sentations on the variety stage nowadays. Will Punch, the tramp juggler, is another interesting importation; indeed, were all the nomadic fraternity so gifted as Will, a great joy would have been lent to our humdrum existence. Miss Ken Ware is a lady with a decided eye for the striking in costume, and sings a song with a peculiar guttural that hooks one like a fishing tackle. Fred Dice, a capable comedian and dancer; and George Rae, a Scotchman brimming over with charac- teristics of his canny brethren, complete a splendid programme.
