Photographs of news clippings of Hollywood Playhouse, Southern California, 1927. "Hollywood Magazi[ne]; 16; Churchill Stars in Opening -; AN ACE and a pair of knaves named 'Sullivan and Tony,' were the nucleus of the hand that drew a full house at the dedication of the new Hollywood Playhouse Monday night last, and the hand, deftly played by the King of Dealers, one Berton Churchill--the real ace--was one that cleaned the board of all honors. There have been few performances given in this town that were as easy to watch as that of the suave, easy-mannered, gentle, cunning, lovable pseudo churchman. He sure knew his cards, and he made the presentation of 'Alias the Deacon' one of the highlights in the Hollywood history. It was quite an occasion. The elite of Los Angeles were on the job, and they were amazed at the beauties, the new theater had to office. The lighting effects were magnificent, the appointments rich and rare, and at the same time there was not the least taint of gaudiness, it was too decorative and soothing to offend in that respect. A very interesting task, that of master of ceremonies was carried out perfectly by Emmett Corrigan, while Edwards Davis, although suffering acutely from an illness which made it really an effort for him to talk at all, made a very interesting and impressive dedicatory speech.; - ‘The M[ilg]; THE history[y] [ilg] [ilg]tion of ‘[ilg] [ilg] spectacle [ilg] Shrine A[ilg] four weeks, beginning [ilg]; WHAT’S GOING ON--? ‘An American Tragedy’ – (Wilkes’ Vine Street Theater)—We are brought awfully close to the more sordid things in life in this Theodore Dreiser play, but it is well done, and although bitter in its message the dose is sweetened by the perfect acting of Leslie Fenton, Betty Rush, Helene Millard and a fine cast. ‘Alias the Deacon’ – (Hollywood Playhouse) – The low-down on this interesting play is to your left. ‘Music Box Revue’ – (Music Box Theater) – Next week Fanny Brice and her high class fellow players make their homes in this great little showhouse, under the direction of Louis O. MacLoon and they have a splendid production to offer. This is the last week of Lupino Lane and his gang and they have indeed done yeoman service. ‘I’m Sittin’ Pretty—(Belmont)—Ruth Helen Davis’ light comedy is drawing more than the ordinary amount of attention, being played by an unusually strong cast, with Lillian Leighton, Roy Stewart, Kathlyn Kirkham, Mia Marvin and others. ‘Magda’—(Biltmore)—Bertha Kalich will play the Herman Suderman play the first week of her stay, and ‘The Riddle Woman’ in the last week. To be reviewed later. ‘Queen High’—(Mason)—Kelb and Dill with an unusually funny who reviewed in this issue. They should be well patronized during their stay here. ‘Easy Come, Easy Go’—(Morosco)—; Hollywood Magazine“ -- on newspaper.
