children she didn't know what to do," perhaps either Wilder or
Blanding asked for a little help and the ball suddenly became a joint
effort. Mentions of the ball in later years give credit to both men
for the project.
Whenever I read of Quat'z Arts ball or Blanding's elaborate 1920s
revues such as "Dream Girls," "Tropic Topics" or "Hula Moon," I
can't help but wish that a modern producer could recreate the event.
My imagination pictures a cross between Rudolf Friml's operettas and
MGM musicals -- Hawiian style!
