Rooney and Bent

Then the reception for Rooney and Bent started with the flashing of signs on both sides of the stage. On at 10:10 and continuing to go until after 11, the revue kept up continuous record of “hits” throughout the entire time, with the quintet of music “hounds” helping to no small degree. They wanted Pat to dance. It was evident that he wanted to dance and he did dance – it was enough. Just getting rid of pantomime, though, held his stepping down. Forty-five, or more, minutes of amusement all the way, with never a doubt as to the final outcome, showed that this is one of the revue class that can repeat wherever it likes.
