    THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: APRIL 22. 1917,
WOMANHOOD GIVES
NEW ANGLE TO WAR
Film of Unusual Quality to Be
Shown at Strand Next
Week.
ITS FEATURES CONVINOB
Perhaps the most vivid battle icenei
ever filmed will be offered to Strand
audiences for the week of April 29,
when "Womanhood, the Glory of
Nation," the soul-stirring patriotic
spectacle by J. Stuart Blackton, will
be presented. A notable east will be
seen in the production, which Includes
Harry Morey, Alice Joyce, Peggy
Hyland, Naomi Childers, Mary
(Mother) Maurice and many others
who are favorites with the public It
is being released through the Greater
Vitagraph, which also produced "The
Battle Cry of Peace," and although
this in itself was a wonderful preach
ment for preparedness, it cannot be
compared to this latest and greatest
of all patriotic pictures. It was taken
in conjunction with the United States
army and navy, and wherever shown
has aided much , in obtaining recruits
for this country. , .
Will House Audience.
It has often been said that Omaha
audiences are "cold" and unresponsive
but if during the unfolding of the
story they do not raise to their feet
many times and cheer it will surely
be strange, for it shows this country
actually invaded and in control of a
foreign foe and how America finally
rallies and "licks them to a frazzle.
This foreign foe is disguised under the
name of Ruritania, but can be recog
nized tove meant for Germany. If
there are any slackers and they see
this picture of events that might
happen, if they have a drop of good
old Yankee blood in their veins it
will come to the front if it ever does.
Some Moments of Power.
One of the most tragic moments in
the entire visualization is when a girl
is stood up against a brick wall and
shot down before thousands of people.
Other great moments are Theodore
Roosevelt making a rousing patriotic
ipeech, New York being bombarded
from the sky, with Zeppelins hovering
above, gas attacks as conducted on
the battlefields reproduced with
fidelity to actual conditions, a new
invention the aerial torpedo, the
heroine of a nation kidnaped by the
enemy in an aeroplane, President Wil
son delivering an oration to a vic
torious nation, and sights that will so
impress themselves on your mind that
they will never be forgotten.
Woman's Answer Here.
It is the reply which the American
woman makes to those who would
betray or despoil her flag. It por
trays the three great loves of a wom
an's life, the love of a maid for a
man, the love of a mother for her
child, and the love of a woman for
her country.
Aside from being a patriotic spec
tacle, the story which is interwoven
throughout is gripping enough that it
would alont hold you in a gripping
tenseness.
Pauline Frederick hows Her
Real Talent as Mother
Those who have followed Pauline
Frederick's film career will note the
wide range of subjects and characters
her work has covered. While there
is no doubt about the act that Miss
Frederick's best work is dona in heavy
emotional types of pictures, still the
fact remains that tins gittea actress
of the screen possesses a scopa seldom
nnaled. For instance, she has played
an old woman in "The Moment Be
fore," a wild young girl in "Audrey,"
an adventuress in "The World's Great
Snare, a quiet, home-loving woman
in "The Woman-in the Case," again
, a young girl, but this time a sus
pected Shoplifter, in "Ashes of Em-

That Does Not Call
For Fancy Gowns
At last the almost impossible has
happened. Valeska Suratt, famed
throughout the world as the "Em
press of Fashion," appears in a film
drama without wearing an array of
gowns which would stock a modiste's
shop.
In William Fox's picturization of
Rider Haggard's famous novel, "She,"
her latest production. Miss Suratt ap
pears only in the beautifully simple
nntvino- 4f-anr!i. rf anin, Pnnl
But here she reveals that same artist
tic skill which has made her modern
creations famous the world over.
Miss Suratt personally chose the
rare silks of which the draperies were
made, and with characteristic love of
variety wears during She as many
different varieties of draperies as she
does gowns in her photoplays of
modern life.
"She" will be the attraction at the
Sun theater Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, and great things are ex
pected by Manager Goldberg from
the production, as Lester Sturm, local
manager of the Fox Film corporation,
is just in receipt of a telegram from
W. R. Sheehan, general manager of
this concern, stating that he had just
witnessed a pre-review of "She" and
he considered it to be the moat won
derful Valeska Suratt picture they
had thus far produced, and that any
one showing this picture could boost
it strong, and they or their patrons
would not be disappointed.

The announcement that the United States has declared
war, seems to have given the Allies renewed vigor, and
victory after victory Is marking their every effort

Many Americans are now seeing service in this mighty
conflict. The American aviators and the gallant
American ambulance corps have been proclaimed by
all countries to be the bravest in the world.
