Patho serial featuring Lillian Ixirralne
nnd William Courtlelgh, Jr. Tho llrst two
reels contain a rcmarknblo view of a town
destroyed by a volcanic eruption. When
the film, was first staged, an attempt was
made to "fako" tho volcano. The result

In the original film of tho ruined city

their way to Lake. Placid, N. Y where
they were to work In two feature pictures.
when Miss Chllders had tho good fortuno
to be presented to ex-President Taft. As
was natural, tho conversation drifted to
motion pictures, their production, educa
tional and amusement value and the qual
ity of pictures turned out by the various
producing companies. Ex-President Taft,
so Miss Chllders avers, favored the Vlta
graph pictures In every particular anil
was heartily enthusiastic over the blue
ribbon feature, "The Island of llesenera-
tlon." which he had seen four times.
"Word was received yesterday by tho
Chestnut Street Opera House manage
ment from Triangle headquarters that

Tb Triangle's plan of presenting scv
eral stars and playJn ouch week's enter
tainment haB attracted wide attention
and Is a distinct novelty in stage affairs.
Aa a matter of fact. It Is a return to
the older tradition of tho theatre when
generous and well diversified entertain
ment prevailed. Four or nvo plays In a
night In a single playhouse were not un
common. As In tho palmy days, the Triangle will
offer comedy, tragedy, farce, historical
drama, etc., all In one bill, with the most
distinguished actors on the American
stage In the principal roles.
Blllie Burke and DeWolf Hopper are
now Jn California working on their plays
for Griffith and Ince. Collier has just
signed a two-year contract. Hitchcock
and Farnum have completed their plays

the first star combination are Mack Sen
nctt. Mabel Normand. Harry Booker,
Fred Mace, Enid Markey, Seena Owen

"Sign of the Cross"
at the Walnut
Outside of Shakespeare, history hns
never got Its duo on tho English speak
ing slnne. Mnsefleld showed clenily
enough In "Pompey, the Great," what an
Intelligent treatment of antiquity could
do. Yet neither Shakespeare's Julius
Caesar" nor Mansefleld's "Pompey"
dealt with that remarkable period of
tragic loyalty to faith and terrlblo per
secution when tho Christians were
spreading their propaganda through
Home The Inherent dramatic qualities
of that age, ns typified In tho period of
Nero, are enough to carry to. a very
groat success such few nnd nit alto
gether marvelous plays ns have been
written about It.
"The Sign of the Cross," which was re
vived at the Walnut last night is ono
of theso. By very modern standards It
Is aging. Its often effective language Is
marred occasionally by commonplace
modernisms. ItB tale of love's tribula
tions Is not by any menns unusual. But
thero Is an undeniable pull In fno pic
turesque, period nnd in the bitter tragedy
of theso beginnings of tho Christian
faith. Against tho magnificence of Mar
cus' Supcrhus, tho persecuted Christians
fitnml out with rare effectiveness; t'no np
peal is heightened by tho drawing of tho
proud Marcus himself Into their fates.
Tho production at the Walnut seemed
remarkably satisfactory for a stock pres
entation of so elaborate and dllTicult n
play. The light and color wero warm
with the Itomnn sun. Soldiers and slaves
and dancing girls, well costumed nnd re
hearsed, added atmosphere. Moreover,
the cat,t was good. All the familiar mem
bers of the AValnut Players committed
themselves well, while small parts Hkft
that of Virturlus displayed young actors
of such' excellent volco and lgor as
Daniel Jorret, Jr. Richard Buhler, star
of tho occasion, coming from his long
experience with "Ben-Hur." Dlaved tho
Roman patrician with an easy, handsome J
grace. Ono begins to think he spent too
mnnv Vftnra nn n .tnirln nncf .n..n. l.....v. 1
It made him a very excollent costumo
player. It will be a greater pity if the
movies now absorb him.
"The Chorus Lady"
at the Knickerbocker
"It's a bad season for a bad show
with bum backing," says Patricia
O'Brien, chorus lady. Which ought to
mean that tho Knickerbocker and tho
Knickerbocker Players should keep pros
perously open for a (rood many weeks
If everythlnu they do Is ns good ns the
production of James Forbes' comedy this
"Tho Chorus Lady" has a spirit of
downright hilarity about It that won't be
denied. Somo very poor actors, Indeed,
could "get across" with the slangy, tangy
Amorlcnn "Josh" of the chorus room
scene. It would tako some very stagey
acting to kill "Pat's" violent efforts to
savo her little sister from the primrose
path by tho side of tho jray White Way,
or her "big" scenes with the particular
tempter, Dick Crawford. The whole thing
is tempered with a reckless humor that
makes It all seem a good deal more nat
ural and plausible than it Is. Which
la tho principal dramatic gift of Sir
rorucs, a useiui, prontablo one.
Now take such matter as "The Chorus
Lady" presents, give it the enthusiasm of
Evo Marsh and the eight young ladles
that form the underpinning of the Long
acre Theatre, BUpply It with perfect lttn
bits like the callboy of Walter Woods, let
In some good male support such as Mr.
Brackctt and Mr. La Sallo furnished, add
Henrietta Vnders to dream of the days
when she made "such a cute little sailor
boy," nnd tho question of entertainment
can't be In doubt for a second.
And don't forget, a letter-perfect Mon
day night and some well painted, simple,
unpretentious and therefore effective
at the People's
Half a dozen years ago If a dramatic
crltlo had beon offered a prize for tho
namo of the play least likely ever to see
the American stage or to achieve any
success at all thereon ho could have
named Brleux's bitter drama of the rav
ages of congenital disease, "Damaged
S?,dB-", Yet " n'snt It returned to
Philadelphia for the fourth time In two
years. Its popularity in New York and
on the first-class circuits was undeniable.
Now It la achieving quite as much pros
perity In tho popular-priced houses, and
this is hardly likely to be the last time
that we shall see this powerful and preg
nant sermon at the People's, where Wch
a.rd Bennett's co-workers presented It last
This could be Justly called Old Home
Week at Keith's. On the bill are many
Pbtladelphlans who made all America
laugh, and then came back to town to
urprUe the natives. Foremoit of the
Quaker City talent la Lou Anger and
Sophie Barnard. They are tho chief
foundation, and most of the building for
that matter. In a tabloid called "Safety
First" Lou'a true-to-Ufe rharacterliatlon
frequently brought laugha to life where
they were not conceived, and Miss Bar
nard sustained several numbers by her
remarkably pleasing voice. From what
could be learned of the plot It seemed to
deal with, the troubles of a down-and-out
"movie" producing company. By booming
tho business with fake orders for pic
tures, the manager induces an easy,
irolng Jew and on Englishman to invest
in the company. Of course, they get

Good variety is given by an caual blend
