On Dec.7, 1941. My Dad took me to a Matinee at the Chicago Theater. When we came out,the streets were full of newspaper Boys. Extra, Extra “WAR”. We saw a very funny Vaudville act that I’ll never forget. A Man, A chair And a Banjo. The guys fingers and hands kept getting stuck on everything. But for the life of me, I can’t remember what else was playing that life changing day. Can someone out there help me ?? Its one of those things that we all suffer from. I just gotta know.
Thanks. Billjr.

My Mother was a Cashier at the “Uptown” in 1932 where she met my Dad who was the elligantly dressed “Doorman”. I was raised between N.Shore and Columbia on Glenwood ave. when I was old enough I spent every Sat. afternoon at the very old 400 Theater. Sheridan Rd. & Columbia area. When we went to the Show as a Family, we, went to the Grenada. And on Dec. 7 1941, My Dad took me to a Matinee at the Chicago Theater. {all Balban and Katz Theaters}, anyway, I can’t for the life of me remember what was playing that miserable day. I seem to remember a Vaudvill act that was about as funny as I have ever seen. A Man, a Chair and a Banjo. The Guys Hands and Fingers kept getting stuck every where. Can anyone help me find out what was playing that life changing Day ?? Thank You.
