Variety – Legitimate – January 28, 1925

Borrah Minevitch – What Paderewski is to the piano, Kreisler to the violin, and Lopez is to jazz, Borrah Minnevitch is to the Harmonica.

Now featured in Elsie Janis’ “Puzzles of 1925.”


Variety – Legitimate – February 4, 1925


Review in two acts produced Charles Dillingham at the Fulton Feb 2: material and numbers by Elsie Janis, Blanch Merrill, Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, Vincent Scotto.
Musical numbers staged by Julian Alfred. Elsie Janis starred with Jimmy Hussey featured, supported by Helen Broderick, Lester Crawford, the Commanders, Dorothy Appelby, Walter Pidgeon, O’Donnell, Blair and Co., DeHaven and Nice, Janet Stone, Shirley Vernon, Cyril Ritchard, Edward Hickey, Irma and Dorothy Irving, Cortez and Peggy, Georgie Hale, William Holbrook and Borrah Minnevitch.

A surprise score in the first act was annexed by Borrah Minnevitch, a harmonica virtuoso; in fact this youngster was the first hit of the evening. Minnevitch has been something of a novelty around the picture houses and was groomed by Hugo Riesenfeld. He scored recently at a Vincent Lopez concert. Minnevitch coaxes real music from his mouth-organ, and he was called on before the curtains for encore.
