Figure Strong in This Film
Many were the adventures which
befell Sessue Hayakawa and his com
pany, who will be seen at the Muse
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
in the Lasky-Paramount production
of Robert Louis Stevenson's famous
story, "The Bottle Imp," when they ,
were in Hawaii. Mr. Hayakawa, his
director, Marshall Neilan, and the
camera man, with a corps of assist
ants and several American members
of the company, journeyed over to the
islands expecting to engage a Ha
waiian cast there. The leading wom
an, Lehua Waipahu, is a member of
a very high Hawaiian family, and,
while she is a talented amateur
actress, it was with great difficulty
that they secured her parents' consent
for her appearance in moving pic
tures. Nearly a week was consumed
before this consent could be obtained,
but Mr. Hayakawa and Mr. Neilan so
won over her parents that they per
mitted many of the scenes to be pho
tographed on their estate. The com
pany journeyed lo Kilauea, the fa
mous volcano, and a number of scenes
were taken in its depths. Mr. Haya
kawa and Mr. Neilan were nearly
overcome with sulphur fumes, so
great was their excitement in getting
some of the views.
