'Marie George gives the audience twenty minutes of sparling fun, and makes them regret very much the powers that be which prevent her continuing her part for double that period. She is delightful in her songs, ''That's a Cinch,'' and ''Over again.'' She is most ably assisted by Mr. Herbert Sparling, whose make-up as a pianoforte turner and acting throughout is wonderfully clever.'
(Brighton & Hove Society, Brighton, Sussex, Thursday, 12 July 1911, p. 4482b)
