'Playwright and Leading
It Isn't very often Ihat a playwright has
j to offer first aid to his own play by
Jumping Into tho leading part in the ab
sence or the principal
player. O o o r B o
Cohan did It for two
nr three nights In
York, when Gcorsto
Nash of "Tho Mira
;le Man," .was taken
down with fever. But
tho playwright who
scetna to hnvo made
a habit of this under
study business Is
Paul Dlckoy, part
I author of "Tho Mis

II; let the muslo and the action build up
ft around my main idea.
l To finish a play after calling tho flrst
; rehearsal for the flrst acti takes me about
II four -weeks. And you can believe that I
; am some worried and busy during nil
1 that time. Then, after the play Is com-
Dieted. It Is taken out on ths rond for
a few weeks for trying-out purposes. Not
to eeo what people think of it, but to
siYe It the last final going over before
It Is pronounced done. All this Is a long

There are, of course, certain fundamen

fjll tho rules of playwrltins, but If you
haven't a play In you, you can't write
one, I do believe, though, that the teach-
i f? at piayn ruing, HKe i-roiessor uaKer,
Bt Harvard, for example, are doing a good
thlny oven If they can't teach their
tuplls to write plays. They lead their
pupils to learn and love the traditions or

Questions and Answers
The Photoplay Editor of the Even

questions relating to his department.
Queries will not bo answered by let

Photoplay Editor, Evening Ledqer.
When ono takes a strong, woll-bnlanced
drama that has been a great success on
tho legitimate stago; utilizes the author
as tho star; uses tho wild grandeur of
tho Garden of the Gods In Colorado as
a background, nnd then, for good meas
ure, calls upon ono of the best known di
rectors In tho country, not only to act
as producer, but as co-star as well. It
makes a partlcuarly strong combination
for a successful photoplay. This Is what
has happened In Lubln's version of "Ea
gle's Nest," written by Edwin Arden
and directed by Romalne Fielding. Both
men are featured In the production.
Shortly after' the piny was aranged for
the screen at the Lubln studio In Phila
delphia It was turned over to Fielding
with Instructions ta mako it in any part
of tho country he wanted to, and to
telegraph Arden when the details for
making the picture had been arranged.
Fielding, -who knows tho West and tho
Southwest like nn oft-read book, Im
mediately assembled a special company
and made tracks for Colorado, and It
was there the big picture was Aimed.
Arden, the author and player, and
Fielding, the director and player, co
operated on the play and the result was
one of the most remarkable stories of
its type ever Aimed. Fielding's ability
as a director of big scenes may be seen
throughout the entlro picture, especially
In the Indian massacre, one ofvtho most
realistic, thrilling and spectacular motion
views ever Bhown on a acreen. Fielding
planted his camera men on the sldo of
a mountain and had tho action on a
plain below. Ono sees the long wagon
train of emigrants slowly approaching.
Another sudden change and down the
side of the mountain, stripped to the
waist, daubbed with war paint, and heav
ily armed, crawl scores of Indians. Other
Indians, mounted on ponies, are seen sil
houetted against the sky on the moun
tain top, hurrying down for the battle.
The emigrants form a wagon circle for
defense and then follows tho battle. It
Is intensely dramatic nnd remarkably well
done. The Indians win and all of the
emigrants are killed with the exception
of a small boy, and It Is around this lad
that the play Is built. The picture will
be shown Monday at the Victoria Theatre.
A Real Hoodoo Picture
"How Hazel Got Even." the Majestic-
Mutual two reel comedy drama featuring
Dorothy Glsh, was completed after a de
lay of almost two months.
At the Mutual studios this picture Is
regarded as a hoodoo, Donald Crisp
started the production of It two months
ago and became 111 a few days after the
plcturo was started. George Slegmann
succeeded Crisp during the latter 'a Ill
ness. On the second day under Sleg
roann's direction Dorothy Glsh was
struck and Injured by an automobile. She
was confined to her home for moro than
a month. Work on the plcturo stopped.
Upon Miss Dorothy's recovery Slegmann
again started to finish the picture.
On the second day of Miss Dorothy's
return Slegmann was bitten by a dog and
work on the picture ceased again for
several days. When Slegmann 'nad re
covered sufficiently to again appear at
the studio It was found that "Teddy"
Sampson, who has a prominent part In
tho picture, -was sick. This caused an
additional two days' delay.
Several hundred feet of film then were
lost, which necessitated several retakes.
But the final scenes now have been taken,
and Director Slegmann and all members
of his company are breathing a sight of
relief that at last the 'noodoo picture Is
Caught a Real Thief
Captain Harry Lambart, one of the di
rectors of th Vltagraph Company, qulto
recently proved to his own satisfaction
that the real Is more astonishing than
the "make-believe." Captain Lambart

graph Company to film pictures of the
Police Department of the city of New
Yorfc for the Fauama-Paclflc Exposition
and during fne Ust two month has token
