"CEASIDE FROLICB" is the title of ** the new revusical comedy m peason at His Majesty's Theatre, Wellington, by the stud Foley Follies Company.

* * * ''Seventh Heaven "
WILLIAM FOX has given to the pub- < lie some excellent moving picture productions over the pagt few years, but his latest effort In "Seventh Heaven" is easily entitled to the de^ signation, '^special/ . It provides one of the most appealing love stories ever seen on the screen, haying, as a background, an entirely new war angle. The theme. has practically been thrashed threadbare m the moving picture world, but this producer achieves a triumph m his new idea alone.
As a revelation In acting, Janet Gaynor, new to the screen, and undoubtedly captivating, establishes, a claim to stardom with her portrayal of Diane. Tfie beautiful love scenes with Charles JTarrell are perhaps the most poignant -r-yet most praiseworthy— features of the entire picture. ' • '
THE Black Diamonds Band, m Zono- * phone 2841 gives us "Varietyland," selection (Parts 1 and^), a first-class medley, introducing "Valencia," "Dinah," "In the " Gloaming of "Wyoming," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," "Brown Eyes, Why are you Blue?"; "Lonesome and Sorry," "Meet Me at Twilight,'" "Have you Forgotten, Yvonne?", "Behind the Clouds," "Oh, Chax-lie, Take It Away."
This is the type of record which is issued regularly from time to time, embodying a selection of the most popular recent songs. The tunes are cleverly arranged to make an harmonious whole, and the execution by the Black Diamonds Band, of course, leaves nothing to be desired,
fOLUMBIA .3948: "Maori — Hula — ** Medley" (fox-trot) and "Rigoletto" (fox-trot). Played by Bert Ralton and his Havana Band. "
Everything of Bert « Ralton's had a happy touch about it and the "Maori-Hula-Medley" was one of his happiest. Poor chap! He I* still sadly missed m the palaces of jazz.
This medley introduces the famous "Yacka-hula-hickey-dula" song and there is also incidental singing 'm Maori and English — fine singing, too. On the other side, the same band gives a fox-trot compounded of the more tuneful bits of Verdi's opera, "Rigolettp," and makes a fine swinging dance tune out of them.
MILDRED COTTELL, vyho does excellent work m "Outward Bound." Centre: The PONY BALLET rehearsing for "Tweekie."
