Mayflower -Bud Abbott and
Lou Costello frisk through “One
Night in the Tropics,” current
fare at the Mayflower, with all
the possible vaudeville tricks
on the docket. They are the sole
excuse for the show, which is
wrapped around an anemic plot
concerning a high pressure in
surance salesman who sells his
best friends a $1,000,000 policy
to guarantee his marriage.
Of course, the salesman then
proceeds to fall in love with
his client's fiancee. The scene
shifts to a West Indian island
for a happy ending. Allan Jones,
Nance Kelly, Robert Cummings,
and Peggy Moran struggle val
iantly with the story, but said
tale simply refuses to cooper
ate and give these experienced
people all the backing they de
serve. This has been done be
fore, and better. Abbot and Cos

son as Julius Reuters heads the
cast of “A Dispatch from Reu
ters,” with generous aid and
support rendered by Edna Best
as his wife and Gene Lockhart
as the Aachen banker. The ac
tual story of how the London
news agency was founded is in
teresting, but Warner Broth
ers felt they had to make it
match such epics as “Dr. Er
lich’s Magic Bullet" or “Edison,
the Man.” It was a noble idea,
but they let the play get noble
too, which was not. From the
meagre beginnings of sending
stock quotations by means of
carrier pigeons, through Reu
ters’ handling of quickening
schedules and his selling of his
wire service until Reuters fin
ally became a great news agen
cy, the stuff is there, but it is
all so surrounded by the noble,
little wife Standing By Her
Husband Through His Adverse
Fortunes, and Reuters’ noble
statements that he is trying to
make his agency a going con
cern only in order to "make
the world smaller,” that little
of the original vitality of the
plot seeps through.
