Gilbert and Katen

Working in good clean Hebrew make- up the pair are tinging four or five brand new parodies, the medley number of popular songs being one of the best heard in some time.
Katen makes a first-rate comedian, and judging from the little talk now indulged in, it would perhaps be advisable to let him extend himself. His eccentric dance is genuinely funny. If Mr. Gilbert must "plug" his own com- position, which is not a good one, and furthermore is similar to a fireman song heard recently, he should remain in the character while doing it. With this final number dropped or replaced the boys will have as good an act as any shown in their line.
