Johnson and Deen

11 Mins.; One. This team of colored entertainers was one of the three real hits of the bill at Hammerstein’s this week. Johnson has a new woman partner, as far as America is concerned, in Josephine Deen. She makes a splendid stage appearance and wears three gowns nicely. She is also possessed of a soprano voice that passes her in the single number she does. Using “Follow the Crowd” for an opening number starts the act nicely. “You’re Here” and “Dancing Mad” also help along and give opportunity for dancing. Johnson is doing eccentric stepping as usual.
