Dorothy Mackaye

“An extremely youthful looking, red-haired girl sings four songs, the first with the aid of a telephone, a table, and a chair.”
"In one of the ditties she has some lines running somewhat like these: 'I'm going to beat it back to home and mother.' The country is at present in the throes of labour problems, the costs of production, customs duties, commercial relations, and the regulation of corporations. [...] But these trifles will have no effect on little Dorothy, who will probably plod along industriously lipping out her four little ditties [...] with small likelihood of being eligible for anything beyond the small time."
