ed,M which will be shown; at I
the dun theater, is an cIct
tnent which carries striking
interest It is the remark
able training of "Peggy,"
which is portrayed by Miss Barris
tale, raised fiom earliest childhood to
the belief that it is rigfit and just to
steal from the rich. In the years that
follow, when "Peggy" becomes fa
mous as he feminine crook, her con
' science is at rest despite her many
crimes due to this fundamental train
ing in ethics, conceived and developed
from the warped viewpoint of her foster-father,
"Patrick Muldoon," who is
widely known' in the underworld as
'The Ear. ' '
"The Ear" Is blind, having lost his
eyes in a premature explosion 01 m-tro-glycerine
while- blowing a safe.
Eacfi da he gives "Peggy" her les
sons in the science which he regards
as his art The safe is kept in "Mul
doon's" living room and the combina
tion is changed each day. It is "Peg
gy's" daily duty to open the safe
without an explosive in order to stim
ulate her already keen sense ofhear
ing. Besides this practical training,
"Muldoon" supplies a daily code of
' moral for her to study which he in
tends shall corrupt her viewpoint of
life. Later in the story when1 "Peg
gy" begins to see the light of honesty
filtering into her soul through the
darkness of ignorance and misunder
standing due to her early education,
Miss Barriscale displays some of the
best acting of her career in the trans
formation of character.
"Pershintt's Crusaders," the first of
ficial war film, will be presented by
the committee on public information
under the auspices of the United
States government, at Jhe Brandeis
theater for one week starring Monday
afternoon, June 3, with daily matinees
1 thereafter. This is really a pictorial
t history of America' part in the great
war, living history, full of human in
terest and patriotic thrills. It should
, be seen by every American who has
given his boy or bought a bond, and
it skjould particnlarlx be seen by those
who have not yet mastered the lesson
of Americanism. Over here and over
there "our boys" in khaki, are seen
in training and in action. Canton
ments spring into being as by magic,
' boys fresh from farm, desk and fac
tory are hardened into fighting whirl
winds, massive ships are launched,
airplanes speed through the air. uni
forms are turned out by the million, in
tact all ot the activities of war creo
aration . are spread before your eyes.
- . In the last half of the him you are
transported to France and see just
what has been accomplished, since the
Start and Stripes were carried over
there, secretary of War Baker and
General John J. Pershing are seen on
their tours of inspection to the battle
front and around the big bases at
. y unknown ports. You can see for your
self that your boys' are as hard as
nailshappy, well-fed and well-clothed.
Watch them on the march with
springy steps and then you will know
that they are ready for the bodies.
You will enjoy every scene in this
varied panorama of events and you
will thrill with pride at every scene. '

Charles Ray has started work off
a new starring vehicle at the Ince
studios, which has the working title
of "The Wise Guy." It is -a unique
story and Charlie has a new charac
terization, that of a youth who comes
back to his home town after being a
necktie clerk in a New York depart
ment store, and proceeds to run his
farther's business according to his own
ideas. There are plenty of amusing

that Charley can be relied -upon to
make the most of. It should, prove a
highly entertaining feature and a sure

visiting her sister, who is ill there.
Hickman has studied the game so
closely, and been in contact so much
with the making of his wife's features
that we should be able to sit right
back, and look forward to some
mighty fine plays with Mrs. Howard
Hickman in the stellar role.
Alfred Whitman has commenced
work in a new Vitgraph production,
"A Gentleman's Agreement," from the
well known novel of that name by
Wallace Irwin. Al has the title role
in this production and is highly
pleased over the story. David Smith,
who directed Whitman, in "Baree,
Son of Kazan," is handling the di
recting end of the present feature. Al
thinks that it is the best story that
he has had so far at the Vitagraph
plant, and is looking forward to its
turning out to be an intensely inter

Mary Pickford has commenced
work in "Captain Kidd, Jr.," following

Thomas H. ' Ince tendered, his
newly-married star, Enid Bennett, a
studio reception on her return from
her honeymoon, spent with her hus
band, Fred Niblo well known star
of the speaking stage in Northern
California. The feature of the re
ception was a private showing of
Miss Bennett's , latest picture, "The
Greatest Show on , Earth." Miss
Bennett is seen in the garb of an
intrepidx animal trainer of a circus,
and she proved her nerve wjien the
picture was being made by entering
a cage of lions at the winter quarters
of the Al G. Barnes circus, near Los
Angeles. The big, shaggy occupants
of the cage blinked and wondered
what the fuss was all about and why
their vocational privacy had been in
vaded and they had to work. Outside
the cage four cameras clicked off foot
after foot of celluloid proof' of the
Bennett daring, while Thomas H.
Ince and half a dozen men stood by,
armed with rifles that were pretty
certain to be discharged at the first
sign of danger to the Ince luminary.
When t)ie scene had been photo
graphed Miss Bennett proved her
absolute femininity by fainting the
moment she stepped out of the
animal cage. .
