THREE NOTED STARS ON
BILL AT STRAND THEATER
The Strand this week keeps up its
hiRh .standard of photoplay with Tri
angle and Fox offerings.
Sunday and Monday Norma Tal
madge appears in "Children in the
House." In this number tP'r one
of the most thrilling scenes ever en
acted on the screen when an auto
load of bank robbers plunges, after
a battle with the police, over a pre
cipice .100 feet high, Its occupants
shot down one by one by the pur
suing officers, the car is seen to zig
zag as it speeds along the mountain
road. At last a bullet strikes the
man at the wheel, and there is a ter
rifying swerve. The next picture is
taken from below looking up at the
summit of the cliff. The spectacle
of the big ear shooting over the rliif
and plunging to the bottom is war
ranted to be enough to give any spec
tator at least one good gaip. Another
thrill in the picture is the rescue of
four of the Triangle kiddies from ;i
burning house where they have been
tied and gagged by a band of erookr,.
"The Heggar of Cawnpore" with
H. J!. Warner in the leading role
romes Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday. The story begins in a
crumbling, ctiuking mud hut on the
Indian desert about the year 1857. Al
Knglish doctor is striving with might
ami main to. save Werner, (he engi
neer, the mil;.' other white mail for
miles around.' Despite everything the
engineer dies. He resorts to mor
phine to stimulate himself; he be
comes a wreck, and through the aw
ful drug loses the girl that he love.
He becomes the worst of beggars
and the story of how he finally over
comes the drug and is restored to his
own is a great piece of work.
Friday and Saturday the offering
is Virginia Pearson, the Fox star, in
"Blazing Love,," a photoplay of
heart interest by Bernard C'hapm.
STRONG SCREEN BILL AT
THE ROHLFF THIS WEEK
Lillian (iish seen at the Kohlff

Louisiana railed "Daphne and the
Pirate." While this is a costume
play, the action is fast and much
human comedy is introduced, Miss

who used to be leading man at the
American theater of this city, when
that house played stock.
Wednesday, William S, Hart is
seen in a story of the west called
"Hell's Hinges' It stands in a class
by itself as far as westerns are con
cerned. The balance of the week is espe
cially strong. Monday, "The Iron

Drifter;" Thursday, Frank Keenan
and Charles Ray in a return engage
ment of "The Coward;" Friday,
Theda Rara in "Gold and the

"Wife and Auto Trouble."
"OFFICER 666" OFFERING
AT REX THEATER TODAY
For today's attraction the Rex is
offering George Klein's famous com
edy "Officer 6o6." It would be hard
to imagine a subject better adapted
to picturization than the uproarious
Cohan & Harris comedy, whose
quaint humor and ludicrous situations
made the nation chuckle. The original
stage version played nearly five hun
dred American cities, the surest kin I
of test. The film version is even
funnier, as it permits a much greater
latitude of action and is not confined
to the conventional four acts of the
Accompanying the film play will

Richard Tizard, proprietor of the
i'alace theater, is about the most
popular man among the photoplay
managers. "Dad" as most of the
younger fellows call him is always
on hand when there is something
doing in movie circles. Whether he
has decided to lead the grand march

termined a' yet. Our guess is he
wants to wait and take his pick. In
the mran time he offering a dandy
