Declared by critics to be one of
the greatest photoplay classics of all
time a human epic of triumphant
realism "Hail the Woman." Thos.
H. Ince's drama of American life,
opens today at the Rialto theater.
The story is said to ail overpower
ing reflex of American life by C.
Gardner Sullivan, foremost motion
picture dramatist. It represents a
veritable human epic and is as such,
interpreted by a brilliant cast.
The v scenes, constituting a tense
succession of emotional situations,
shift from the harsh and rugged New
England hills to the rush and tur
moil of the world's greatest metrop
olis; from the peace and plenty of
the country to the misery and the
want of tenement life. Interwoven
in the theme is a beautiful Christmas
story of "peace on earth and good
will to men," in a picturesque yet
Florence Vidor, Carl Sandburg's
"unforgettable woman," takes the
role of Judith Beresford, the beauti
ful flower sprung from harsh New
England soil, whose spiritual courage
and noble character redeem the faults
of those she loves, as she goes out
into the world to escape from her
tyrannical and unjust "Old Testa
ment" father, and to care for her
brother's neglected child.
' "Burn 'Em Up Barnes."
Johnny (Torchy) Hines' initial
feature length starring vehicle, "Burn
'Em Up Barnes," which comes to the
Moon theater this week, is said to be
packed with thrills. Mr. Hines, who
temporarily deserts the title role in
Torchy comedies, has in "Burn 'Em
Up Barnes" the role of a speed-mad
youth, and automobile racing en
thusiasts will find it thoroughly to
their liking. Winsome Betty Car
penter is the leading woman, and the
supporting cast includes such artists
as Edmund Breese, George Fawcett,
J. barney Sherry, Matthew Betts,

Dealing with historical facts and lo
calities, Mr. Griffith took great
pains to make the costumes, settings,
incidents and characters from his
tory absolutely correct. While
many of the costumes, particularly
of the women, may seem strange to
time. 1 he models for his Parisian
buildings and streets, and costumes
of the period were taken from prints
and colored plates loaned by the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New
York. Mr. Griffith's authorities were

Never lie to' your best girl, or

A Superspecial If There Ever Was One
- presents a.
"Why Announce Marriage."
Elaine Hamriierstein in "Why An
nounce Your Marriage?" is announc
ed as the featured attraction at the
Sun theater this week. ' Unlike most
of the pictures in which this charm
ing star has recently appeared, "Why
Announce Y'our Marriage?" is a
comedy of the lighter type which is
said to afford the star new oppor
tunities of which she makes the most
at all times. ' V v '
The story deals with the determin
ation of a young married couple to
keep their wedding secret from their
friends and public. In doing so they
involve themselves in a mire of scan
dal that grows deeper and deeper all
the while, finally resulting in a situa
tion that threatens them both with
lasting disgrace. Then, of course, the
truth comes out and it is learned that
their seeming indiscretions .were but
the natural deeds of a man and wife
who considered their marriage of im
portance to themselves alone.
In the picture a notable supporting
cast is seen . with Nilcs Welch at its
head. ' ; .
"Fools Paradise." ,
Siam, mystery land of the far east,
has been transferred to the screen
in all its oriental magnificence in
Cecil B. De Milk's production,
"Fool's Paradise," which continues
its engagement at the Strand theater
this week. A technically perfect and
artistically' beautiful reproduction of
a portion of this little known country
has been reproduced as a background
for a portion of the action of this
story. ; The props include a wide
range oi Siamese equipment ranging
from incense burners, dancing girls'
jewels, head pieces and costumes, to
many-armed idols and crocodiles.
The story of "Fool's Paradise" is the
joint product of Buelah Marie Dix
and Sada Cowan and it was suggested
bv Leonard Merrick's short story,
"The Laurels and the Lady." A cast
which includes Dorothy Dalton, Mil
dred Harris, Conrad Nagel, Theo
dore Kosloff, John Davidson and
Julia Faye present the principal roles.
"Orphans of the Storm "
In "Orpharis of the Storm," now
fn its thkd week's; engagement at the
Brandeis theater, Mr. D. W. Griffith
took the story of Kate Claxton's
"The Two Orphans" and gave it the
thrilling background of the French
revolution. The result is an histor
