until the city refused to remove them and

Dorothy Kelly Goes Through
Flame to Register Scene
In order to secure realism in "The'
Money Mill," the Vitagraph Blue Rib

Kelly, and is the attraction at the
Empress tiieater, Director Robertson
actually bljw up the location which he
had made to resemble ?. mine.
The story calls for fascinating "Dot"
to rush into the blazing enclosure in
order to rescue her father, and prepa
rations were made for the scence to
be filmed as written. 1
When tha camera started to grind
and register the blazi, the signal was
given by the director and "Dot"
started to run towards the spot. A
high wind, however, was causing the
flames to muke a big headway and the
director regretted his act the moment ,
he has given the word "Go," and
called tp Miss Kelly not to attempt it.
. Paying im heed to his warning be
cause she realized that her failure to
enter the structure would spoil the
picture or cnuse the expense of erect

little star kept right on. Two or three
other playeis who were in the soene

her strength, she pushed them aside

Eugene Walter Adds Another
Scene to His "Easiest Way"
Eugene Walter has furnished the
key to a certain question which was
frequently propounded when his
drama, "The Easiest Way," was hav
ing its long Broadway run. The screen
production of this great play has been
made with Clara Kimball Young as
the star, for Selznick-Pictures, direct
ed by Albert Capellani, and for this
purpose Mr. Walter contributed his
own version of the logical ending of
the career of his heroine.
In the play as produced by David
Bclasco, Laura Murdock, an actress,
is abandoned by a man whose influ
ence and money she had accepted, be
cause she did not "play the game,"
and also by the man she loves be
cause in dire straits she took "the
easiest way " to luxury and success.
The last act closed with Laura hys
terically calling to her maid: "Doll
me up, Annie; I'm going down the
When Director Capellani was malt
ing the picture the numerous inquiries
were recalled, and Mr. Walter was
asked to add a final chapter to his
story. He has done so and carried out
the drama to its logical, tragic con

Strand theater for five days,, com
