Do Not Miss
The 'coming appeareance of Florence
Roberts, Thrulo Bergen and Theodore
Roberts at the North Theatre on
Thursday, November 2, in "Jim the
Penman" will create great interest,
as it is unusual at any time to see
three Stars in a single production.
Bliss Roberts beyond question does the !
best work she has ever done. She is
the Mrs,. Ralston of the play, a wo
man who has been tricked by the
fraud of Jim the Penman, to give up
her lover to marry the forger, with
out knowing his infamy, to bear him
two children and to become the mis
tress of his household of luxury, and
the innocent partner of his villianous
ly acquired position in society.
Toward the end of the play, she
learns the truth and faces the husband
who has tricked her, who has brcught
her face to face with misery. Miss
Roberts' acting makes this the most
Doicmant climax of the play. She
makes the scene vibrate with natural
ness and directness, and flings the
thrill of reality across the foetlghts.
Mr. Roberts as Baron Hartford, the
evil genius of Mrs. Ralston's husband,
the man who has taught him how to
be the expert forger he has become.
The Baron is the arch plotter, the
head of a mysterious band of criminals
who achieve their fabulous crimes
through the expertness of Ralston
the "Jim The Penman" of the melo
drama's title. He is the personage
who drives Ralston to make possible
a theft of priceless jewles from his
The role of the Baron is composed
with the greatest care It is perfect
to the last detail. Mr. Roberts per
sents such a piece of character work
as will not be seen in many a season.
The Baron becomes possessed of just
the right German accent; his cunning
and his cynicism are insisively con
vincing by consistent gesture, inflec
tion and poise, and his smouldering
wickedness and sinister nature are as
sociated with mastery.
Mr. Thrulow Bergen as "Jim The
Penman" gives a force and dignity
to the stronger scenes with the and
Baron again with his wife, that has
seldom been attained by any of our
leading men of the present era, and
makes the cunning and craftiness of
the forger wonderfully realistic.
