The Pawn of Fate" Reveals the
Peasant-Painter of Paris as the
Dupe of Rich Parisians.
In securing George Beban for the
stellar role in "The Pawn of Fate"
the World Film company has found
one of their greatest successes and the
brilliant master of characterization
certainly has won great approval
v.hereever he has appeared in these
pictures. "The Pawn of Fate" will
be shown at the Air Dome on Tues
day August 22nd. The story of the
play is os follows:
Pierre 'Dufrene and wife Marcine
live contentedly on their picturesque
farm in Normandy, France. They
know nothing of the gayer, broader
life, in the world beyond their rich
meadows and green hilltops.
With Pierre's old father to aid them
they pursue their simple rural lives
as wholesome and happy a young cou
pie as could be found in the province
Pierre tends his sheep and Marcine
fulfills all the duties of the housewife.
occasionally coming down into the
fields to see her husband and plague
him with some simple childish trick
While romping through the mead
ows, Marcine stumbles upon Lesar,
young painter from Paris, who
sketching at his easel. Pierre, in pur
suit of his wife, finds her and Lesar
picking up the scattered parapher
nalia with which she had collided
This is the beginning of the ro
mance. Lesar, who is a wealthy Par
isian and dabbles in art on the side
is attracted by Pierre's pretty wife
He returns to Paris for a few days

Pierre, who has become deeply in
terested in watching Lesar at work
conceives the idea that he too can
paint. With Marcine as his model he
daubs upon one of Lesar's canvasses
a crude portrait, which, to the simple
untrained ideas of Marcine and Pier
re's old father, appear as a marvel
ous work of art.
Lesar returns to find the little fam
ilv imbued with the idea that Pierre
is a potential genius. The unscrupu
lous voune Parisian sees the humor
of the thing and also a chance to
make Pierre's artistic ambition the
means to a successful culmination of
his interest in Marcine.
The young painter from Paris de
clares his unbounded admiration for
Pierre's first work of art and assures
him that he has onlv to come to Paris
to make the sensation of the century
in artistic circles. lie induces Pierre
and Marcine to come to the city as
Tierre and Marcine are established
in luxurious quarters and Pierre en
thusiastically begins what he hopes
will be a picture that will make him
famous. While Pierre labors at his
canvass, Lesar pays insidous suit to
Marcine, who slowly but surely finds
herself drifting under the spell of the
young Parisian's charms and the bril
liancy of the gay Parisian life, of
which Lesar is giving her her first
At last Pierre's great picture is fin
ished and Lesar arranges, as the cli
max of his joke, to unveil the canvass

Lesar works the hoax to its climax
with malicious cruelty. Suspecting
nothing, Pierre is led to the veiled
painting: and proudly draws aside the
draperies disclosing his crude and ri
diculous attempt to paint a rural land
scape. The peals of laughter and
satilical comment come as a terrific
shock to the poor peasant painter, and
he undergoes all the tortures of bitter
To add to Pierre's fury when he dis
covers that he has been the butt of i
ghastly joke, comes a seemingly well-
founded suspicion that his wife Mar
cine has been as unfaithful to him
as his supposed friend, Lesar. With
the rage of a maddened bull, Pierre
springs upon Lesar and a terrific
fight ensues, ending with Pierre the
victor and Lesar apparently in a dying

through the streets of Paris in des
pair. He attempts to bolster up his
courage with absinthe and is about
to end it all by leaping into the Seine,

sar, conscience-stricken Dy the result

heart of Normandy.
