Miss Frederick (and this Is no secret)
Is enamored of screen work. She loves
tho psychology of emotional work and
bclloves that It can bo shown best when
silence Is maintained. While her experi
ence In photoplay acting has been limited,
as compared with her work on the speak
ing stnge, she has done enough to realize
the possibilities In film work.
"I am really enamored with photoplay
acting," she said last night in her dress
ing room In tho Garrlck Theatre, tho
while a well nigh Invisible puppy yelped
angrily at the Intruder. "Tho work Is
fascinating. In 'Innocent' the authors
have given me a rolo which Is fully 50
per cent, pantomime. I- must portray
emotions, not speak them; I must picture

There can be no gainsaying the fact
that society Is rather coy about accept
ing or Indorsing innovations originating
outside Its own set, but thore Is llkowlae
no gainsaying that this much-sought In
dorsement has been accorded to the
photoplay as It Is produced at the Stan
ley Theatre, and that a visit thero Is In
cluded among tho smart things In society.
In fact, tho evening audlonces aro rep
resentative of tho best society of Phila
delphia, and Its best-known business and
professional circles as well.
Tho reason for this vogue which the
playhouse enjoys lies In tho fact that It
has ralBed tho photoplay to the realm of
the really classic production, given
among rich nnd attractive surroundings.
The accompanying music Is of the high
est clnss and a worth-while entertain
ment even In Itself.
