The idea was really good.. actually GREAT! A ventriloquist act that centered on Thanksgiving with a turkey, a girl, and an axe, and all for the Orpheum circuit!.. right around the Holiday! No one had ever done it before, and when news of it hit the casting offices, everyone wanted to book it....all the way up to Flo Ziegfeld!.... but then..the sad downward spiral that hits those overnight sensations. The dummy kept falling over or breaking, or couldn't be worked right!... besides, Tom secretly drank...and you could see his beak move every time he had the dummy ask for more cranberry sauce.
