The Fashion Plate Tenor A Talk With Peter Brooks [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

Tie Fislton Plate Tenor A Till Will refer Brarts I wonder if there is anyone in this city who can honestly say they have never heard of Peter Brooks, better known in the vaudeville world as 'The Fashionplate Tenor.' Well, there may be, but I'll wager any amount from a peanut to a shilling piece that they are strang ers to the city. Peter has visited our city on nu merous occasions, and has each time been received with 'open arms' by the vaudeville-loving public of Perth. Peter is a big favourite, and an ex cellent draw card to any local the atre. Some twelve months back, he was instrumental in opening up the Shaftesbury Theatre as a vaude ville house, and since that day the theatre has not looked back, as . a matter of fact, the management is still known as the 'Brooks Amuse ment Company.' Shortly after Peter stepped off the 'Limited' on Tuesday morning, I cornered him for a few minutes chat for 'The Mirror.' 'Welcome back to our city, Peter.' 'Thanks, Allan. Funny, isn't it, I simp...

Film Chat Continued [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

Fill mt ctttiuec 'Checkers' Coming to Perth.— The scene is a race track, the horses are at the post, and1 after three false starts get under way. In the home stretch two of them fight for the lead, nose and nose, and in one of the greatest racing scenes ever wit nessed an unknown horse, ridden by a girl, dashes under the wire as the winner. That is one of many thril ling scenes n 'Checkers,' the well known racing play, which has been made into a big special moving pic ture by William Fox, and which will open on 13th July at the Majestic Thsatre. It is a masterful produc tion, rich in romance and prodigal in wholesome sensation. Priscilla Dean, the girl who can ;nake her eyes jazz, comes back to Our film zone once more. Priscilla won her screen name with the film, 'The Virgin of Stamboul,' which is one of the finest subjects the Univer sal Exchange has released to date. This time Priscilla has to offer 'Pretty Smooth,' which comes to the Palladium next Wednesday. The literature, whic...

"IRENE" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

'IRENE' I would ike to give you some sight ' idea of what the story of 'Irene' really hinges around. Now for a start, the production is a smartly-written and skflfuJUy con structed story, with an American at mosphere for a background. It -is rich in humour, and has a 'g&ior- life' action about it. The centre ?jf the story is a little Bowery girl who has a longing to shake off the environment and atmosphere of the squalid quarter in which she lives. She is anxious to follow the primose path of pleasiire. The drudgery of a department store is obnoxious to her, and so she continues her daily routine, making a study of the airs and graces of the customers with whom s'iie comes in daily contact. Possessing initiative ability, she copies them and with her com panions plays the part of the fine lady. Her idea of real happiness is consummated when she vi-its the swagger fiat in which a dubious friend of hers is installed. The gaiety of it all attracts her. Her friend gives her a mos...

CYCLING Youth's Fine Ride. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

CYCLING Youth's Fine Ride. C. H. Gibbs, who won the recent 70 miles road race in New Zealand from Phil. O'Shea (scr.), the Australasian road champion, is only a youth of iO. He certainly had e big start — so min. in 70 miles — but was entitled to it Des cribing the ride a Maoriland paper states: 'Tor the greater part of the way the roads were good, though loose metal at times, and occasional watcr-rarcs. made riding hard. Gibbs, the winner, who is only 16 years of age, had to ride a hard race, unpaced for many miles, and he thoroughly deserved his win. O'Shea's performance in finishing second was a magnificent effort, and, while all ex pected that, barring accidents he would put up fastest tune, practically nobody thought that he would finish In a place. The fastest lime (over half limit) was secured by Hill, and Gibbs received the prize for fastest time tinder 18 years.' Gibbs rode the 70 miles in 4 hrs. S min. 31 sec.

CRICKET AUSTRALIA ROMPS HOME IN 100th TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

CRICKET AUSTRALIA ROMPS HOME IN 100th TE8T. 'The Mystery Team,' as one hostile English critic clubbed them after the match against Lionel Robinson's XL, put it all over the reps, of the Cold Coun try. The man who gave them the mon nicker quoted above reckoned it was a mystery hew they won the five tests in Australia. The 'mystery' doubtless will now deepen. Some or the Eng landsrs took their latest dubbing- with good grace, but the majority squealed — wanted Gregory taken off — too danger ous; hooted when a rising oall from the young 'Aussie' hit an English player. Same crowd, like Brer Rabitt, 'kept on saying nothing' when Armstrong was laid low with a similar ball. Men like 'Johnny' Douglas, Archie McLaren, and 'Plum' Warner must surely wish their countrymen had more of the Australian ways, practically all admit that Bards ley's dismissal per ibw decision in a recent match was a bad one but did Warren stop and debate that point with the umpire? Ho. The good sports among the Englis...

Health Giving Corsets [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

Healtk Giving Corsets ? O ? Corset are being placed on a new basis as an important health-giving article of women's apparel by seve ral leading medical authorities in London and New York. These ex perts declare that if corsets are de signed scientifically, and with pro vision for the needs of women in various occupations, they may prove invaluable assets in strengthening weak muscles and improving the ge neral carriage instead of having a reverse effect on the wearer. No less an authority than the con servative Life Extension Institute of New York, which aims at making mankind liye longer, is now justify ing the existence of this muchma ligned article of dress. Dr. D. M. Dunn, head of the wo men's department of. the Institute, which is a public health organisa tion — declared recently that of 15,000 women examined last year, not one had a coirect posture, and that with out corsets the feminine figure 'slumped.'

Be Individualistic! [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

Be IiuUvtduaVi&ic ! 'Miaouw'VHave you ever noticed how comparatively few women live up to their type— both physically an4 mentally. It's part of their muddled brain state. Every girl should find out what is her type, and then dress to it-^and not only dress to it, but also suit her sur roundings to it. Hardly one of them dresses indivi dually. If the fashion is to drag the hair off the forehead, they all do it, and if big hats are the fashion, everyone of them trots along wear ing an inverted soup-plate. jlf- you, therefore, have smart, :-ievel eyebrows., high cheek bones, .and slant eyes do not go and dress yourself in flowered muslin and ' pink- and blue ribbons. Cut your hair in a straight fringe, bind a gold en fillet above your head — and wear bright colours. Do not, for the love of Mike, invest in a blue serge! [t doesn't cost any more to have a striped, purple skirt, to knit your self a purple jumper, and to have a purple and crimson cap crushed on to your head and dr...

Colors versus Black FOB THE SILVER-HAIRED MATRON. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 4 June 1921

Colors versus Black ? u ? FOB THE SILVER-HAIRED MATRON. 'Bobserbashus' wonders whence came the edict that gray-haired wo men and women over the thirties should wear naught but black. And such black as has been the rule of previous years! Surely it has been some long, lingering horror that was inflicted upon women dur ing the Victorian period. B. heaves a sigh of relief that, in this year o2 grace — 1921 — women over thirty, gray-haired and otherwise, can choose from a whole world of colour. As for the gray-haired woman, she has come into her own at last. The realm of colour is hers to wander in and choose from, and there are none of ill-grace to say her nay- Abun dant, beautifully dressed1, gray hair, A simple yet neat skirt made of serge or Gabardine, witn belt and pockets finished with bone buttons. and a gown of colour — such colours! Jades, rose pinks, turquoise blues of shades unthought of since the Louis periods. What beautiful women there are who have previously hid den their...
