^TMdElR Coliseum panto date having now finished, Joan and Doris Fred-Emney are back again in Variety with their famous sketch â A Sister to Assist âer.â They are at Shepherdâs Bush this week, where I found Doris battling bravely against â flu.â and with only half a voice. Joan told me that it was the result of their appearance together at the Metropolitan, last March, that Sir Oswald Stoll paired them in panto as the Ugly Sisters. Now they seem together for good.

BIG ACTS & LITTLE ACTS
No. 20. Macari and his Accordion Serenaders
SELDOM have 1 seen an accordion ^ band with so much life, vigour and humour that one could call it â a complete stage entertainment in itself.â But Macari has got together a combination of musicians and comedians that really deserves this title.
From the moment the curtain goes up, to forty minutes later when it drops on his act, the audience have a good time.
Maybe the costumes have a lot to do with it. They are as gay and as colourful as could be seen in any village in Holland, and the L'utch idea is carried a little further with the beautifully designed scenery behind.
Macari himself is resplendent in a crimson and black silk cape, whilst the boys are attired in the traditional patchy trousers and wooden clogs that must have reminded many of the lads in the Forces of their Army boots !
Starting off with a light music medley, in which Jack Lowton on the Lafleur stage organ takes a prominent part, the band swings through into three or four popular songs. Here pretty Rosa Macari, looking very demure in a Dutch starched peasant costume, comes into her own and puts the words over beautifully, sometimes with, sometimes without the aid of the microphone.
Sam Herman, seventeen stone or more, Iâll bet, is a drummer and comedian
combined. Why is it, I wonder, that all stout skin-thumpers are also first-rate comedians ? Sam manages to send the audience into tucks of laughter with the aid of nothing more than his fresh complexion and double-chin.
No Dutch band would succeed without one or two yodelling numbers, and here Van Luun earns big hand. Leslie Childs, vith his childish impressions (no pun intended), simply reaps applause, and although he was very talented indeed, especially when he cross-talked with a loud-laughed member of the
audience, 1 felt his act was a trifle
Accordion solos, featured by Larry Macari, proved to be as popular as ever, and whilst complimenting Larry on his marvellous speed on the keys, he told me that his instrument, an Excelsior, cost him Â£230.
[ can well believe it. The tone Larry got out of that box was superb.
Macari himself, conducting, compering, and playing now and again, makes
the ideal leader. His handsome appear-
ance and smiling announcements would warm any audience to the act.
I should say that this band is one that would appeal to any type of theatregoer, and after hearing Macari and his boys I felt like going straight off and buying an accordion for myself.âD.K.
JAMES, who took his skeleton along with Arthur Salisburyâs band to entertain fifteen hundred Polish officers last Sunday, tells Jackdaw that the most impressive thing about the affair was their singing of their National Anthem at the conclusion of the show Landseer took this picture last week at the Paradise.
Eric Cardi now uses â Band Wagon â as a medium for his ingenious paper-tearing act. Landseerâs pictures show him â before and after.â

VI/ATCHING GeÃ²rgie Hayes get up on her toes and tap to the rhythm of Poet and Peasant at the Dominion this week, I found it hard to believe that at the age of six she was paralysed and unable to walk.
Motherlove and the patient skill of Chicago's best surgeons effected a miraculous cure and at ten she was studying ballet. GeÃ²rgie tells me that her ambition is to dance in -ballet. Meanwhile, her twinkling toes are bringing her plenty of renown in Variety.

J OS VAI.ENTOS must have been born on wires. What they didn't do at their first appearance in London at Finsbury Park last week makes up the usual wire act. They begin where the others leave off. I believe they could go to sleep on the wire. This is an act which is definitely tops of its kind. They are at Blackpool this week.
ll^ELCOME home to Jenny Y* Benson, who has been delighting Australian audiences with her Sophie Tucker numbers for all too long. Jenny opened at Leeds last week in Len Urryâs bill and Len tells me she went over in a very big way. She goes to Sheffield with the show this week and her engagement book is filling up rapidly.
J ESL1E FRANCIS, who has stage-managed more West End Variety bills than he cares to remember, is the creative genius behind â Meet the Girls,â an "Allwomen Crazy Show,â which is cleaning up round town lately. Leslie devised and staged the whole show for John D. Roberton and tells me that he is interested in further productions which are to be presented by a new company called Craven Productions, Ltd., with whom he is associated.
ALAN SHIRES was busy last week on some of the dance routines for â Beyond CompÃ¨re.â With his partner, Evelyn Dar-velle, he will be dancing in cabaret at Quaglinos shortly.
