“Hands Up” is not a eue for thumbs down. Many first offerings of every new season are, but the musical review seen for the 6rst time in the 44th Street Theatre last night — the first of the season of 1915-1916 — revealed every indication of having arrived there to stay. Such music, such fast fun and such girls win approval without an effort.
Maurice and Miss Florence Walton spoke lines and sang songs for the first time on the stage, but they were only incidents in a cast of tried and true farceurs like Miss Irene Franklin, Ralph Herz, Miss Alice Dovey and George Hassell.
Edgar Smith, who was responsible for many laughs in the Weberfields [Joseph Weber and Lew Fields] frivolities of other days, obligingly has filled “Hands Up” with a lot of clever nonsense. Not since Lew Fields was a cab driver has an audience near Broadway laughed so boisterously as did that of last night at the scene in a dentist’s office in which Ralph Herz, as the painless operator, and Miss Franklin, as his assistant, pounded the stout Mr. Hassell, who played the rôle of their writhing victim in the dental chair. Almost every one has suffered a similar experience in a modifïed form, and one touch of the buzzing drill makes the whole world kin.
Fortunately, “Hands Up” is devoid of plot. What there is of it involves the pursuit of a stolen necklace, with Mr. Herz as a burlesque détective and Mr. Hassell [illegible].
