In all that time Mr. Williams has been making Vitagraph films in the studios of the east nd there wasn't a happier actor fn the world than Earle when he was told that the entire company would go to the Pacific coast to make, a num ber of Blue Ribbon features. Williams was educated, in the pub lic schools of Oakland, and attended the Polytechnic school of thai state, but the lure f the stage drew him away before obtaining his degree. , His first regular theatrical engage ment was with the Baldwin-Melville stock company in New Orleans in 1901 and following that he played in several stock companies and in a number of stage successes over the . country. His last stage play was with . George Beban, also now a movie star in' "The Siam of the Rose." .The entrance of Williams into the moving picture business was as an "extra man." Although considerable of a star in the legitimate, he became tired of loafing one summer and wan dering into the Vitagraph Brooklyn studio he told them he was an actor , and would like a little work to fill in the idle months.! Actors of merit were scarce that year and Eerie drew a part heavier than that generally ai ' lowed to a stranger within the gates Me made eood so fast before the camera that Vitagraph never let him ; get away back to the legitimate. -It has long been known that Alice Brady's charming photographs hold a olace in collections of film fans, on the walls of college youths and on the dressing tables of other artistes. but that it held any charms against the wiles of a submarine was a new one to the Select Studio crowd. well-bronzed nephew of Uncle Sam made this disclosure while on shore duty recently. -"All us fellows like her best of those we have seen in New York and we lnok for a chance to see her in Pic ture always, so we want to know if you won't give ns a picture for our ship?" and the manner of the asking betrayed that a real admirer was the committee. .When it came to a matter of choice of which, oose he wanted he couldn t decide and got away with them all 1 !lj-lJ r "Yon know he said." we're sure we met her in a store at Long Beach the other day. bhe was drinking soda water and one of the fellows stepped up to her and said, Excuse me, miss, but you look very much like Alice Brady.' and the young lady laughed and replied, 'well, that's the funniest thing I I've been told that several times.' " . 1 Miss Brady's favorite sport is catch ing a train as it pulls out. She never wants to leave and wait at the station but takes a keen delight in running with a grip in one hand and climbing on the back platform, as trie engine gives the first few puffs. When the company was at Asheville, N. C, on location tor the outdoor scenes in "The Whilrpool," she had the pleas ure oi rutving ine entire company come marathoning past the hotel, grabbing their baggage off the hotel porch and all piling onto the train, with the little job of washing oft the grease paint left to be done outside before entering the caj in docile order. In his new offering "Shark Mon roe Williams a. Hart demonstrates that he is not only a master inter preter of the character of the western bad and eood men. but that he is an artist of no mean ability in portray ing any part calling for a virile player full of life and action.

His is a remarkable character and it is drawn in vivid colors by Hart. In addition to being the chief actor in the play Hart is al so director of the picture and he has proven that he has mastered the technique of pictures. In one of the most thrilling scenes of the play Hart is to save from the bowspirit of the vessel George Mc- Daniel who plays the part of Web ster, the worthless ' brother of the heroine whom Monroe has come to love. The scenes were taken during a storm and when McDamel got out on the bowsprit and Hart started af- ter him it was nip and tuck whether either of them would ever get back, as heavy waves dashed over them. threatening to wash both overboard. But as Bill said when safely back, "that'll make some scene."
