'ORDER TO VIEW'
By FRED COYNE
THE TWO ODDMENTS
(Ethel Revnell and Gracie West)
THE B.B.C. THEATRE
Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
HEBE HAWORTH and Dennis Redhead met at Felixstowe in a concert party, started out at the end of the season as a double turn, and have been ' He, She, and a Piano ' ever since. Hebe comes from a theatrical family, and showed it by winning a prize for singing ' She Sells Sea-Shells on the Sea-Shore ' when she was three years old.
George Buck is one of that select band who were the first to give out laughter over the air from the little studio at Marconi House. More recently he did a lot of good work with Charles Brewer in the Midlands.
In ' Order to View ' Bobbie Comber is to play a Cockney caretaker of a house to let, which will be a distinct change from the irate father in the sketch he has been playing for the last seven months.
Mario Lorenzi is the only harpist to play hot jazz ; but he is just as much at home playing a classical solo. He has played in concerts, music-halls, jazz-bands, symphony orchestras, on the air, and even appeared in television.
Leonard Henry , unique in that he comes from playing Lancelot Gobbo in The Merchant of Venice to Variety, has the incorrigible habit of re-writing his patter at the last minute. He says he always thinks of something better. He always used to walk on the stage with a black cat under his arm, but it died, and he was too fond of it to replace it, though he has several black cats at home.
' The Two Oddments ' were such a success as the Ugly Sisters at the Palace, Manchester, last Christmas, that Julian Wylie has booked them for his next year's pantomime in the West End.
