Harry Holman and Co. led the comedy section showing number three with his new “Hard Boiled Hampton.” It’s a champ comedy playlet, by Billy Miller and Stephen G. Champlin, who have provided many sure fire lines. There, too, is a sob on the plot which has the patient young widow of a boy lost in France. In “Hampton” Holman has his best vaudeville characterization and it’s an act which should do service for him for seasons to come. One little detail can be improved on. When the bottles of supposed booze are taken from the grip, they ought to contain something – water will do, because of the colored glass of the bottles. From the front rows, it could be clearly seen that they were empty.
