fit know o the SENSATION OF N.Y, FOR THIS "You've got to be god to click York." That is what anybody who "Alain Stem" will tell you. By the same token the same on will tell you that Maurice Chevalier, Idol of the French and British stage, "clicked" in New York recently when 1 he appeared or his firit personal performance the United States at the Ziegfeld Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic. Your Broadwayite very likely will one further and say, "That lad not only clocked, he whirred and hummed!" What it takes to bring a blase York audience' to its feet yelling and cheering, Crevaller has got. is a genius, a marvel In the art entertaining. Here is what the Evening said the day after his appearance at the Ziegfeld roof show: "Every number was received fervent handclapping, and some of the spectators forgot that they were In starched shirts and placed their fingers in their mouths to whistle in the good old-fashioned manner." Commenting on his genius and fun-making magic, The New Telegram said: "Small wonder that, at the witching hour of one, New York gives him a nice big hand. Small the patrons o£ Mr. Ziegfeld's cabaret rise up, a collective Oliver Twist, to beg for more and Small wonder that every paper in the metwolis gave Chevalier the most cordial greeting ever extended to any visiting player. Small wonder, for "the boy's got the stuff that clicks." The audience at the Miller Theater will see and hear Maurice Chevalier in "Innocents of Paris" at tho Miller Theater on Tuesday when .the Paramount all-talking and singing picture opens there 3 days, beginning Tuesday.
