Paramount's show seems long this week as well as topheavy. If someone isn't Boop-Boop-a-Dooping then someone is huddled around a mike. Nevertheless, there are several solid clicks in the show. Outstanders being Al Bernie, 14 year old mimic and protege of Rudy Vallee; Moore and Revel, with their comic ballroom routines and Fred Sanborn and his xylophone routine. Bernie despite his age is one of the best mimics this reviewer has seen and on merit should have been spotted later in the show, possibly where the quartet of Betty Boop girls were set. Latter Bonnie Poe, Mae Questel, Ann Little and Margie Hines, are really a freak booking on the strength of their recent publicity from a legal suit brought by Helen Kane, claiming theft of the Boop. 

Each girl does a solo, then the four work together and it's too much squeaking. Eanborn, next-to closing, landed solidly with his comic routine. Moore and Revel likewise clicked handily. Bad routining found the latter pair following the only dance number by the house girls. Phil Harris - his band does no solos but is limited only to the background - and Leah Ray. Harris girl vocalist, make a good-looking and satisfying duo. Harris works in a manner somewhat like the late Bert Williams. Miss Ray a nifty looker, sings pleasantly. She does a solo and closes the show with Harris. Georgie Tapps on early, fared well with two tap numbers. If the show were cut down slightly it would be improved. A fair house at the supper show with the customers coming in. Thirty-Day Princess is on the Screen.
