VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 8 April 1921
VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES By BERT LEVY On the stage at Proctor s , Newark , under the spotlight I snapped this nifty couple , Wilbur Mack and Nella Walker , the pioneers of the dainty and refined act In one . There is no denying the fact that Wilbur could write and stage smart stuff just to suit sweet Nella and himself . Mack was certainly the personification of Hart , Shaffner &amp; . Marx , while Miss Walker s merry girlish laugh and her fascinating -smile helped to win ( and keep ) many friends for their act . Thirteen years ago , at Chase s Theatre in Washington , I gave Nella a book on the cover of which I penned : To One of the Sweetest Women In Vaudeville . P . S . I must explain the absence of the crease In Wilbur s trousers In the above picture . This snapshot was made between shows on a very damp day .

WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 8 April 1921
WHAT ARTISTS SAY ABOUT THE NEW ERA IN VAUDEVILLE EARL MOBSMAN Artists who have played his theatre I am sure will agree with me that Mr . Gallagher , manager of Miles Theatre in Cleveland , O ., is one of the very best theatre managers in the country . He is the sort of a man who never allows an artist to leave dissatisfied . At B . F . Keiths Theatre in Greenpoint , the theatre attaches back and front are all fine boys . When I appeared there last , every artist on the bill voted them regulars . At another theatre I found a grouchy crowd back stage , but I later learned the reason . An artist had come in with the proverbial chip on his shoulder and needless to state he made the entire date miserable for all of us . ELSIE LAMONT It strikes me that this is an era of good will in vaudeville . This is the right spirit .

PERSONALITIES The call of the newspaper proves so strong an attraction for Thomas Duray , who was a sterotyper before he turned actor and began appearing as star in For Pitys Sake on the Orpheum tour , that he frequently removes the grease-paints and seeks the mechanical rooms of the newspaper offices . This always results in much publicity . The San Francisco Chronicle was recently visited by Duray . He made a matrix and cast a plate just as he used to do in the old days . The Chronicle carried a story and picture of the stunt . Manager Sol J . Levoy , of the Harlem Opera House , reports that Lawrence Golde reviewed the show there on Monday night , March 21 , according to custom . Two of the try-out acts on the bill were immediately booked by him . Randolph &amp; Riesner , two girls , piano and singing , were booked to play Keiths Jersey City , while . Lavier &amp; Collins , man and woman acrobatic act , were booked into Proctors 23 rd Street Theatre , both for the ...
