While 1916 passed some time ago, the show it left behind is good fun yet, as was attested by ' the joyfu! manifestations of tlie multitude as sembled at the Boyd last night to wit ness the unfolding of this latest of the Winter Garden revues to escape from Broadway. It is in many ways smarter than any of its predecessors; at times its humor almost approaches subtlety, and its travesties never bor der on the coarse, as some have. Moreover, the chorus wears clothes not such as are burdensome, in any degree, or that entirely conceal the female forms intended for display, but lots more garments than some Winter Garden buds have bloomed in. Its music varies from the slow and se date strains of a solemn march to the syncopated noise that keeps "The Pan Alley" awake at nights, and each of fering is a good example of its kind. Ed Wynn is the chief fun maker, but he is not alone. Belle Ashlin, Elida Morris, Stella Hoban, Charles Mack and William Philbrick, Jack Boyle, William Arnold and Herman Timberg are along, and they surely know how to -entertain. Wynn's garage scene is a scream, while his nonsense is distributed all through the evening, breaking out in the most, unlikejy places and always hitting the mark. Herman Timberg gets away big with his dance specialties and his violin solos; in his playing he snows con tinual improvement, and has reached a point where he might give over his acrobatics, let his hair grow a little longer, and become a figure among the virtuosi, did he. so elect. Mack and Philbrick arr droll and effective in their neero sketch. Belle. Ashlin is not only a thing of beauty, but bid lair to be a joy for ever: she can make foolishness sound as serious as any whoever undertook the task. Elida Morris is new to us, but she will be welcome at any time hereafter, because o the quality -of her output Ma-Belle dances well, and with Wilbert Dunn and a competent ballet outs on an effective number. The Ford sisters stilt can jig in lively fashion and Drovide a oleasing inter lude. Stella Hoban is alio good for the eyes,-and adds her bit to the sev eral travesties in manner worthy ap oroval. , The finale to the first act is new, and is of a nature that brings enthusi astic aoolause. with the, audience on its feet.
