Billy Johnson

“supported by four coloured girls, two of them being very light and the others of the medium shade.” Act opens on a jungle scene with the girls in “inappropriate Oriental garb” and Johnson in brown tights. Military number by the girls, the backdrop is a warscene. Ends with a ballroom scene with Johnson in evening clothes and the girls in multicolored princess gowns.
Does a plantation song an it's the best of the act.
"Evolution of the Negro"
lacks snap and smoothness.
