THE PICTURE PALACE. I Pictures have been hoff," as the waiter woiuld say, at the Picture Palace, Royal Hall, Ledbury, thi-s week, and instead .patrons have had the Attractives Comedy Costume Party, a band of half-a-dozen happy entertainers who delighted and amused fairly good houses on the first three nights oif the week. The visit of the "Attraetives" has proved a pleasant break in the pictures, and the hall has resounded with laughter and applause each night. Miss Hilda Thurlow has proved a popular figure in the programme by her clever dancing and singing of catchy songs, especially some of the latest rag-time ditties. Miss Mabel Austin, too, as a comediene and entertainer, has aeh-ievedmuch success, notably with her renderings of two of Kipling's works Gonga Din" and The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God." Mr Frank Monekton is a really clever humorous entertainer, and all the time he is on the stage it is difficult to restrain one's risible faculties. Whether single-handed, in duets, or concerted numbers, sketches or burlesques he has proved to be a born humorist, and he is quite the most popular member of the party. Mr Reggie Dingle is a comedian who does excellent work all through, and that his numbers have been appreciated is proved by the number ofeiaeorei3 he has received. Mr Norman Dale is the possessor of a fine baritone voice which he knows how to use to ad vantage, and encores have been the rule for his songs. He is not without a faculty for humour, too, as shown in his general contributions to the remainderof the programme. Mr Ron Montague, the pianist, is undoubtedly a clever musician, whose work does much to maintain the general excellence of the pro- gramme. "The Attraetives" appear to-night (Friday), and at three performances to-morrow (Saturday), when there should be. real good houses. The "Attractives" deserve them, certainly. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday pictures will be resumed at the Palace after a rest of 10 or 11 days, and The Queen's Jewels," by the Itala Co., is a film that is bound to attract attention and admiration. People who have seen this splendid production in the Cities are full of praise for the ingenious plot and the effective staging of the same. For Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, three star features will form the main body of the programme—and we would point out that there are very few Picture Houses in the world that favour their patrons with three feature films in one programme. Don't forget 6. Fantomas III on February 9th, 10th, and 11th, and make sure of a seat now.
