Mathews and Howard

3 Mins.; One. “All wrong.” Two men. One a vaudeville actor acting as relief for a lighthouse tender (just so they can get in about “light house keeping”). This must have gone big in one of the smaller burgs for the team has a back drop with a lighthouse painted on it. For this, they should be billed as a light comedy act. Very light. After the lighthouse keeper sings a song the comedian (German) arrives and three or four gags are exchanged (including lighthouse keeping) and then the straight sings, received lightly by the audience, followed by the comic putting over a parody on “The Curse of an Aching Heart,” which saw the light of day so long ago it’s time to set a tombstone for it. A double number got one bow at the finish.
