Hippodrome, Tonypandy.


Hippodrome, Tonypandy. For a breezy twenty minutes France and Stewart take the proverbial cake. They present a clever racing comedy sketch, The 100 to 1 Chance." which has a distinct American flavour. Another turn of unusual interest is Jimson's novelty sketch, entitled Jimson's Pets at Home: or, The Burglar's Surprise," introducing the original canine policeman, Rover "—a large St. Bernard dog- that was trained in Philadelphia to catch burglars. Sounds odd, doesn't it? Never- theless, a visit to the Hippo will show that it is true. Master Chris Rees, the wonderful boy flautist, appears at each performance and draws forth rounds of applause. The Atans are very successful in their original aerial act, whilst Henri Albano, solo harpist and the world's greatest English concertina soloist, is greatly appreciated. The pictures again are hard to beat, and the Hippodrome Orchestra continues to play excellently.
