Several of Miss Laughlin’s later numbers are utterly out of the “kid” character she essays to portray, and their purport and wording are entirely at variance with her costuming and personality.
Miss Laughlin wins her auditors at the outset with a novel entrance and a song that is fitted to her capabilities of voice and method.
The boy she employs helps to clinch the generally pleasing effect of this first number. The youngster is mute, but by no means useless. His pantomime is delightfully entertaining.
