FIVE REASONS WHY PHOTOPLAYS AltE POPULAR

Discussing tho future of the photoplay,
Thomas H. Ince, ono of the best known
men In tho business, declares that It all
depends 'upon the producers of film plays.
Ho denounces the cheap melodrama as n
menace, which he trusts public opinion
will scotch ero long. Mr. Inco expressed
Within tho past year thero lins been
a general heglra of all branches of
the theatrical, world to motion pic
tures. I predict that It Is only a ques
tion of time when motion pictures will
supersede everything else In tho
amusement world. Everything points
The permanency of motion pictures
depends upon tho producers alone.
Just as long as they can plcturo
scenes of human Into: eat and supply
enough variety to keep the public
mind focused on moving, pictures,
just so long will motion photography
retain Us vitality. It must have tho
same diversity of subjects as tho dally
newspapers, together with prppor tech
nique nnd the loftiest standards
known to tho art.
Cheap melodrama Is ono UiThff which
is proving a menace to tho permanency
of the motion picture. In my opinion,
It is something which tho public toler
ates rather than enjoys, and the quick
er It Is eliminated tho better It will be
for the craft. ,
, Time and proper censorship In each
community will undoubtedly correct
this evil, but It Is to bo regretted that
certain producers still believe tho pub
lic to be extremely gullible, when, as
a matter of fact, they have already
condemned the cheap melodrama.

Ono of the letters, from a life con

years, rather purzles Adolf Zukor and his
associates. It reads:
"That play was splendid In fact, the

New York Is to hae an all-night photo
playhouse. Tho promoter, Jeanette A. Co
hen, argues from her observation of
metropolitan oxlstence that New Ydrkers
must have something doing at every hour
of tho day and night, nnd since most of
the restaurants now close at 1 a. m. many
persons do not know how to spend their
The scheme contemplates a strictly mov

operation each night after the regular
performance at the theatre has termin

promoters, waiters, mail clerks and em
ployes In other callings who, because of
their hours of service, are prevented from
attending the theatre. They will be relied
upon to fill the house after the midnight
hour. Moderate prices will be charged.
"THE CHRISTIAN" A MASTERPIECE.
The photoplay version of "The Chris
tian" at tho Chestnut Street Opera House
has proven far mora effective In present
Ing Hall Calne's masterpiece to theatre
goers than even the play did, on account
of the unlimited scope of the moving pic
ture camera. Whereas In tflay form only
some half a dozen scenes were utilized.
In the film version there aro more than
600 different scenes. In fact, every scene
and all the Incidents in the book have
been reproduced In the film drama. Among
the. big scenes that have caused o. great
deal of comment during the last week
are the English Derby, the attack of the
mob upon John. Storm's Mission House
the hospital ball. Glory's discovery of
Polly's seorat, and others.

Ho was In the very midst of things when
hostilities broke out and In person, took

"Poetry," says Francis Gricrson, "af
fects the heart arid tho mlml; music af
fects tho heart and tho nerves." It would
bo decidedly worth while to record tho
nervous states of a normal person, could
ho bo found, nt yesterday's concert of the
Philadelphia Orchestra, becnuso not ono
of tho orchestral numbers was nevrose
yot each had Its nervous effect.
Certainly tho auditor of sensibilities. If
ho had to listen to Mr. Stokowski's read
ing of tho "Molstcrslnger" prelude at tho
beginning of tho program, would havo
cried out at it. To make Wagner febrile
and "Die Melstcrslnger" dull is certainly
nn achievement In Interpretation. For
tunately, beforo It, Mr. Stokowskl had led
vthe smooth ovcrturo to "FIdollo" and the
"divine adagio" of Beethoven's fourth
symphony. And completely to redeem his
work, Mr. Stokowskl put all his energies
into "The Flying Dutchman" nnd
achieved all its sonorous powers.
Tho playing of tho orchestra In the
symphony and In tho two overtures re
flected somewhat tho criticism which the
Now York trip had evoked. Tho strings,
In spite of successive mlshap3, sang well,
and tho brass labored with some success
to acqulro a tone which would bo sweet,
yet not lack strength. It was again made
ovldent that of tho choirs of tho orchestra,
tho wind Is the one which can bo depended
upon with tho greatest degreo of assur
ance not to falter or misbehave. It seldom
reaches tho height of the string choir
when that organ is nt Its best. But It
docs not jield to weakness or to dulness
Miss Elena Gerhaidt was tho assisting
artist. She sang, first, an aria of Goetz.
but those who had hoatd her before could
hardly forgive her for Blnglng an nrla at
all. Miss Gerhardt's work In tho singing
of llcdcr Is so marvelous that ono would
have "her forever at It. She sang threb
songs of Wagner nnd sent memories flying
to the "Dlchterllebo" and to every other
song cycle of benuty with the wish that
she might slug them. Her "Traoumo" was
rich in voice, a soprano which oven In Its
lowest notes remains clear and fine, yet
misses none of the dramatic power of a
mezzo tone. And tho nrtlstlc moderation
which fulfilled that song, nnd tho others,
was so humanly and so nobly right that
tho superb technique behind It passed un
noticed. So that tho artist seemed for the
moment to stop singing and seemed to
communicate feeling uirccuy to lecung,
