Lady Duff-Gordon Appears far a War Charity---Herman Timberg
A fashion display staged by Lady Duff-Gordon, and including that
personage herself as an added attraction, was the mecca that drew an
unusually large crowd to the Palace Theatre yesterday afternoon. Lady
Duff-Gordon's vaudeville appearance is on behalf of a war charity, and
in that cause she presented a rather naive entertainment entitled
"Fleurette's Dream at Peronne." Its military environment is rather
unnecessary, and an equally striking effect would have been achieved by
dropping all pretense of narrative and merely parading the mannequins
across the stage.
The program also includes the versatile Herman Timberg, fresh from the
Winter Garden, and undeniably an tentertainer [sic] of parts.
Among others on a fairly good bill are Cecil Cunningham and a tabloid
comedy entitled "The Reckless Eve."
