WALTER IN LOVE

A gay dog until he sees Spanish spaniel Tita dancing on the stage, caned and top hatted Walter then goes all moony and sends her flowers, candy, and love letters after each performance. Walter's trouble is that he makes his letters backwards, so that although she receives the messages (as ""TO TITA"" is made up of letters that read the same both ways) she never knows who they're from -- until, at the dressing table with her looking glass, she catches the reflection of the ""Chinese"" fan letter she had pinned on her dressing room wall. Hoffman's mock elegant black and tan pictures extend White's sophisticated drollery, and both maintain a light easy tone right through to the wedding trip in Walter's Rolls Royce.
