In the big mail that Charlie Chap- 
lin received aboard the schooner 
while doing Shanghaied, was a paper 
from London. On the Drat page was 
a large picture of e movie theatre. 
Standing In front was a full figure 
of Charlie. An old lady was standing 
on the walk looking at the paste- 
board figure. The note under the 
picture said: NEAR SIGHTED OLD 
LADY: "Pity that poor fellow. He's 
so small and thin. Six months In tbe 
army would certainly make a MAN 
of him " And the figure was only 
about four tall!

"I am llrmly of the conviction that 
the Mm as a medium of expression 
has not only come to stay but that It 
Is going to develop to one of ins high- 
est forme ot expression we have, it 
Is a great thing to be Able to visual-

thrown on the screen that have left 
me breathless for their sheer beauty. 
It Is s new art and a great one. 1 
only wish I could elt down and write 
rully how I (eel about It." 

The above opinion on motion 
Pictures was written recently to the 
Sellg Polyscope Company by Mary 
Roberts Rlnehsrt. the world-famous 
novelist. Her wonderful story. "The 
Circular Staircase." Is soon to be re. 
teesed by tbe Sellg Company as n Red

returned from Europe where she 
proved the only woman war corre- 
spondent who got to the front with 
the Allies. 

Mrs. Rlnehert says: "The Cir- 
cular Staircase" was so easy to write 
that it Is difficult for me to remem- 
ber how or why I did It. My methods

DRINKING SCENES 

Motion Pictures Hare Accomplished 

More for Temperance Than 

Any Oilier Force 

The Manufacturers' and Dealers' 
Association of America baa address- 
ed letters to the prominent film man- 
ufacturers and state In part: "Vari- 
ous regulatory and restrictive bills, 
which vitally affect the great motion 
picture Industry, have been Intro- 
duced In legislatures throughout the 
United States. It has been shown In 
most Instances that these bills were 
not only absurd but tending toward 
the destruction of the motion picture 
business. We believe In ths elimin- 
ation of drinking scenes and drunk- 
en brawls, because there Is absolutely 
no real necessity for euch portray- 
al." 

Officials of the Sellg Polyscope 
Company In alluding to the letter 
assert that drinklnr scenes, so tar as 
Sellg photoplays are concerned, are 
few and far between. Neither are 
drinking scenes uaed unites they 
tend to teach lessons of morality and 
abstinence. Scenes are Invariably 
shortened, very frequently to mere 
rushes; according to leading temper- 
ance advocates the motion pictures 
have accomplished more for the cause 
Id tlve years than any other opposing 
agent ever known. Prices are each 
that the laboring man can seek an 
evening's amusement with Ms family 
at a price within his means, when 
before the advent of the motion pic- 
ture nlckela and dime* flowed into 
the till of the saloonkeeper.

pictures and he 
qualities of being 
mt in the widely 
mventlfl and char- 



•eara in motion 
combines the ran 
thoroughly profit 
separated arts of 
acter acting. 

The enviable reputation that he 
built up in the eastern states is a 
sufficient introduction to Lob Angeles 
but he doea not depend upon this 
being determined to exhibit his abil- 
ity by showing what he can do now 
rather than depend upon past per- 
formances. Up to date Mr. Howard 
has not become identified with any 
fllm producing company In Southern 
California but Is looking about to aee 
where he will fit in to the best ad- 
vantage and It is quite safe to say 
that the director who chooses him aa 
an aditlon to li is acting company will 
never regret the step. 

Mr. Howard possesses a supply of 
good looks thai would turn the head 
of a less sensible young; man and Is 
possessed of a very complete ward- 
robe both of which are of great as- 
sistance in his chosen profession. The 
long list of parts that he has suc- 
cessfully portrayed In the footllght 
drama will prove of great benefit to 
him throughout hla career aa a sun- 
light actor. It will be no great sur- 
prise to those who are acquainted 
with him to see his name In big 
type on the billboards before many 
months have passed.

fa considered a very flne dancer, Is 
taking advantage of her extensive 
terpslchorean knowledge and In "The

Miss (lluli. Is taken from the "Cour-

from It sad It had much In com-

vorite dance of Louis VIV, who was

templating a novel Berles to be called 
"Who is Guilty?" or "The Struggle 
for Life." which will be along lines 
somewhat similar to the very suc- 
cessful "Who Pays?" series recently 
released. 

"Who Pays?" a series of twelve 
three-part dramas rounded on social 
crimes and problems of everyday ex- 
istence, enjoyed country wide pub- 
licity and there was an Insistent de- 
mand for a not Her feature along these 
lines. The new series will deal with 
actual problems of modern life, pre- 
senting them in a forcible and 
graphic way. Each chapter will be 
complete In itself, and the Pathe name 
is assurance of the Quality of the 
—pictures. 
" Mr. Louis J. Gasnier, general man- 
ager of the Pathe Exchange, is now 
making the necessary arrangements 
Cor this great series and It is prob- 
able that the pictures will be re- 
leased In the fall. They will be put 
out In conjunction with a strong 
chain of newspapers which will carry 
the story simultaneously with the

AT THK CiAllllUK 

Mary Plekfortl. the dainty little 
queen of the movie world. wLll por- 
tray the part of a queen at the liar- 
rick theater during the coming 
week, where she is scheduled to ap- 
pear on the screen in Channing Pol- 
lock's noteworthy drama. "Such a 
Little Queen." It was one of her 
first big feature pictures, and many 
of her admirers believe It the photo- 
play In which she had done her ben 
work. The story resembles a Harold 
McCrath novel. In that It deals with 
a mythical principality in Europe, 
in which the young prince Is forced 
to flee to America by the revolution- 
ists. The adventures of the prince, 
the little quaen. and tha prime min- 
ister In New York city, without visi- 
ble means of support makes any num- 
ber of Interesting and thrilling situ- 
ations. "Such a Little Queen" wan 
Charming Pollock's first big play, 
which he wrote white a dramatic 
reviewer on the Washington PostI 
Little Mary fa supported by a well- 
known cast of stars. The fact that 
the negatives for this dim ware de- 
stroyed In the recent Famous Play- 
ers studio Ore 1n New York makes It 
probable that this will he tbe public's 
last chance to see "Such a Little 
Queen." As an added attraction the 
latest Installment of "The Diamond 
From the Sky," will be shown. It Is 
nearlng the end and each release 
seems to be mote crowded with thrills 
than its predecessor.

And still does Thomas H. Inee con-

bus been devising divers means of

multiple-reel masterpieces and each 
week has announced new wrinkles, 
su to speak, from his Incevllle plant. 

The most recent, and perhaps the 
most Important, innovation Is & danc- 
Intt school. This is designed to fur- 
nish Inatrucllons In Terpslchorean 
art tO every actor and actress at the 
studio who is anything but a recog- 
n 1 7.i' il expert. Frequently do the elab- 
orate society dramas produced by 
Ince require pretentious ballroom 
scenes at which only the latest steps 
are expected to be -danced. Ail at 
Incevllle are not elegant dancers, 
but luce wonts to make them such, 
Consequently lie has detailed four 
men and fopr women from the Ince- 
vllle ranks to dispense instructions 
three times each week to every Ince- 
vlltlan,

In engaging Eugene Nowland Mr. 
Thanhouser selects an artist or an 
unusual versatility. He Is an actor, 
stage director and fatuous musician. 
It was only when he broke his hand 
that he abandoned music for the stage 
and In a short while was shining 
brilliantly at Barah Bernhardt'* The- 
atre In Paris: he also took compan- 
ies to Brussels, Berlin and London. 
He then returned to the United 
States, where he was engaged for 
several years In stock company ac- 
tivities on the Pacific Coast, after 
which he Joined tbe Edison company 
in the East, as director. He direct- 
ed Mrs. Flake in "Vanity Fair." and 
some of his work has been the best 
successes of the Edison company, 
such as "McVuadB of the Traffic 
Squad," "The Boston Tea Party," and 
"According to the Light."

iSigmund Lubin, president of the 
Lubin Manufacturing company, and 

ncss in the United Stales, arrived in 
Los Angeles eariy this week- 
Mr. Lubin is stopping at llie Hotel 
. t xandria and is considering Los 

lishmem of one of the largest motion 
picture studios in the world. 

his mission here, but admitted lhal lie 
was jn Los Angeles on important 

business thai might terminate in a big 
deal. 'The deal involves the purchase 
of a large trad of land near the city, 
and, if the proposition is carried out, 
another gigantic moving picture stu- 
dio will be added to the large number 
now in and about the city. 

"This is my first visit to Los An- 
geles in thirty-five years," said Mr, 
Lubin, "and J marvel at the wonder- 
ful changes that have taken place. I 

do not wonder that it has become the 
mceca for the molipn picture men, for 
the conditions here arc ideal for the 
business. The climate is wonderful 
and the business can be carried on 

here without the interruptions that 
are encountered in the east. Aside 

from the climatic conditions, the scen- 
ery about Los Angeles is all that can 
be wished for, and it is plainly evi- 
dent that no other place in the world 
is so thoroughly adapted to the re- 
quirements of the business. 

"WhDe we have large motion picJ 
ture interests in the east, yet I heft 
are many difficulties to overcome 
there which are absent in California, 
and I predict that Los Angeles is des- 
tined to be the greatest motion picture 
field in the world."

doped, and loo, Mr. Selig would not 
permit such an action to be taken

"We just reduce all riikl to the 
smallest possible minimum and then 
we take a chance," said the charm- 
ing Kathlyn. "There you have the 
whole thing in a nutshell." 



Syd I'hapilin was painfully injured at 
the Keystone slndios last week. In 
making a water sectte in the artificial 

lake he fell from a height of about 
seventy feet and struck the water hori-

"SPARTACUS" AT CHAUTAUQUA 

What is probahly the largest uatli- 
rriiiR that ever witnessed a moving 
picture performance, was the mons- 
ter crowd that packed the great am- 
phitheater at Chautauqua, N. Y., last 
week to sec "Spartacus." 

The production was the biggest 
event in Ihe season of Chautauqua. 



The 



1 -life 



audie 



thrilled the 5 
thusiastn, assuring a continuation of 
the novel innovation of motion pic- 
tures in thia famous center of art and 
learning. 

One of the interesting features of 
the performance was the incidental 
music. Modest Altachuler, who orig- 
inally arranged the score shortly after 
the subject reached America, was en- 
gaged by the Chautauqua. 

Says the Baltimore American: "The 
film itself is one of the triumphs of 
motion picture photography. Many 
familiar Roman settings were seea, 
including the Circus Haximus, tl.e 
Apian Way, the hills above Rome a*n 
the Senate Chamber, alt accurate with 
respect to furnishings and detail.

RUTH ROLAND GETS LETTBE 
FROM WAS «OMB 

for two years, Ruth Roland, the 
Balboa favorite. hsa been receiviirtf 
letters regularly from the scion of ■ 
prominent English family. So ardent 
il the correspondence on the young 
man's part that even the war hai not 
been able to interrupt it, although the 
writer is enlisted and serving his 
country as a Lieutenant in "The King's 
(Liverpool) Regiment." To reveal 
his name would be unfair to both par- 
tita. It promises to come out in due 
time, for in his last to Miss Roland, 
the soldier says he's sorely coming 
to California to see her, if he comes ' 
out of the war alive. 

"I wish it wis all over," he write! 
of the dreadful conflict, from the 
front. "However, we haven't nearly 
finished yet by a long way. The end 




RUTH ROLAND 

of Ibis war seems like California to 
,m( — a darned long way off. But I'm 
jolly well going there some day. 

"Really, Ruth, 1 don't suppose you 
know how ripping you arc. Lord, 1 
wish I could hear you sing, and speak 
to you. Life here is sickingly hard 
work. Somewhere or other, 1 saw 
that you sang a song at a charity rc- 

eemly entitled 'California and Vou.' 
I'm jolly well going 1 lo get it. The 

. title seems just about to express my 
thoughts. 

"On reading over what I've written, 
it sounds pfettf average bosh; but 
anyway it's genuine. It's awfully 
weary and nagging here. Letters arc 
the only solace except drink, and 
that's no use to any decent man. Your 
letters arc worth a dozen others. They 
simply can't be compared to others. 
I've kept all you ever sent me. Any- 
how, you know what I think of you. 
even though I can't express it" 

Then, he continue* trying to "ex- 
press it": but Miss Roland was too 
considerate to reveal any more. That 
her admirer comes from a family of 
standing is evidenced by the fact that 
his pater invested half X million 
pounds in the latest war loan floated 
in England. 



BROADWAY COMEDIANS AT 
KEYSTONE 

In accordance unit I lie present pol- 
icy of Managing Director Mack Ben- 
nett of the Keystone Film company to 
feature a series of famous comedians 

in the Sennett-Keystone pictures that 
will be released on the new Triangle 
program, two new stars arrived at the 
Edendale studios this week. Joe Jack- 
son of world-wide fame, preceded Bert 
Clark by one day, They were greeted 
by Weber and Fields, Eddie Foy, Vin- 
cent Bryan, Hatry Williams, Aaron 
Hoffman. William Jerome and a host 
of other New Yorkers who are now 
.Keystoning and for a few minutes the 
studio lloked like a misplaced bit cf 
Broadway. 



TOM PERSONS BACK 
Thomas Persons, superintendent of 
the Selig Polyscope company's Pacific, 
Coast studios, ha* returned to Los 
Angeles to resume his duties after 'x 
pleasantly spent vacation in Chicago 
and New York City. Mr Persons 1* 
enthusiastic over the outlook -for pro- 
ductions in course of preparation at ' 
the Selig Pacific Coast studio*. "Not 
only arc we preparing some magnifi- 
cent spectacle* tut forthcoming Selig 
pictureplays in one, two and three 
reels will be away above the average." 



Films For Children 



Producers, releasing agencies, ex- 
change men and exhibitor* unite in 
declaring there ii no money in to- 
talled "Children's Films," yet there 
has never been but one or two leriou* 
effort* to go after this business. 

Children are full of imagination. 
They dream things the "grown-up" 
never feels; the occult, the mysteri- 
ous in nature, find vent in the childish 
lave for, and belief in, fairies, witches, 
magic transformations and the like. 

Librarians will tell you thai eighty 
per cent of the books loaned are lo 
children— and they arc books of fairy 
tales, imagination and so-called "non- 
sense" volume*. This prove* thai 
ehildren demand such stories and at 
the kiddies are enthusiastic supporters 
of motion pictures they flock in large 
numbers to the right son of screen 
pictures. 

When the exhibitor puts cm a 
strong drama he caters to cither otic 

or ihc other — sometimes both— par- 
ents. He limits his field lo two in 1 
family. When he puts on the right 
sort of a "child's film" he cater* to

SOME ROYALTY 1 
Mr. H. F. McGarvie, manager of 

exploitation of the San Diepo expo- 
sition, paid Francis X. Bushman and 
Beverly Bayne one of the highest 
compliments tbat one person could 

pay to another. He said: "I w*as very 
prominent in affairs at the Pari) Ex- 
position a few years ago and during 
that lime witnessed the coronation of 
King George, and 1 must say that the 
Coronation services given at the ex- 
position last Saturday, and the dig- 
nified king and queen so far sur- 
passed the real coronation of King

the custodians lo obtain beds in var- 
ious hospitals for 'the treatment of

A large number of subscriptions

amount indicates there will he little

FOY SUBS KEYSTONE 

Noted Comedian Claims $6,000 Due 
Him for Three Weeks Unpaid Sal- 
la ry — Alleges Broken Contract 

Much interest has been attracted in 
motion-picture circles by the break 
between Eddie Key and the Keystone 
management, because of an alleged 

On Monday of this week Eddie 
Foy, through his personal attorney, 
John F, Clark, filed suit against ilic 
Keystone Film Company for $2,000, 
one week's salary. Next Monday, Oc- 
tober 11, Attorney Clark will file suit 

for another $2,000, and on Monday. 
October 18. for $2,000. Total $6.00(1. 
This money, Foy claims, is due for 
three weeks' salary. 

In an interview with Pholoplaycrs 
Weekly, Mr. Foy said: "The suit is 
caused because the Keystone com- 
pany broke their contract with me. I 
was employed with my family for ten 
weeks at a salarv of $2,000 per week. 
After appearing in various rough-neck 

comedies and suffering many indigni- 
ties for seven weeks and being re- 
peatedly bullied by directors, the con- 
tract was terminated and my salary 
held Up. My contract also called for 
expenses and return transportation 
for myself and family to New York. 

"The Keystone management at- 
tempted to make me break (he con- 
tract through discourteous treatment 
and indignities in so-called comedy 
scenes, humiliating mc very much, 
hence trouble brewed, with the result 
that I was 'fired,' speaking literally. 
I am simply suing for what is Justly 
due me." 

It if'dtateii by Attorney John P. 
Clark that an additional suit for $100,- 
000 damages to Mr. Foy's famous 
prestige and reputation aa a world- 
beloved comedian will also follow the 
three salary stilts. 

The Keystone management refuse 
to discuss the affair.

Strong Denial leaned to the Report

The" New York offices of the Oliver

emphatically deny the report printed 
in various papers that Myrtle Sted- 
nun. the popular star who has beci 
appearing under this banner since it: 
inception, has left to join the farces of 
another producing company. 

Miss Sled m an is at present actively 
engaged nt the studios of the Oliver 
Moroaeo Photoplay Company in Los 
Angeles, with whom she has a long- 
term contract, A telegraphic dispatch 
from Los Angeles states that Miss

To those contemplating entering 
motion pictures through the ranks of

the popular esteem of a good follow-

splendid model from which to pat- 
tent. A little less than two years ago 
Miss Kirkby was playing extra parts 
with Kalem Company, and today she 
is playing leads, and endowing her 
work with such talent and exquisite 
interpretation of the parts assigned to 
her that it stands out clear-cut and 
fine in every picture in which she ap- 
pears.

of Edgar Allan Poe. Miss Kirkby was 
educated at Bryn Mawr, which college 
was built and founded by her grand- 
father, Mr. George Ott. While at- 
tending college Miss Kirkby special- 
ised in dancing, hoping some day to 
make this her vocation. Upon gradu- 
ating, however, pictures attracted her 
and she joined the Kalem Company. 



In order to stop all arguments as 
to who will be the next star to occupy 
the famous Geraldine "Farrar dressing

been divided into "three star" dressing

still maintained and the scheme car-

"CAPT. JACK" JOINS PHOTOPLAYERS' WEEKLY EDITORIAL STAFF 

We take pleasure In announcing that Photoplayers' Weekly bns secured 
lbs personal services and co-operation of "CapL Jack" Poland, tbe noted 
California descriptive and motion picture writer, as saslstant editor and 
personal aide to J. Frederick Ryan, managing editor. 

"OapL Jack" will devote much of his time to the ndwa and editorial de- 
partment*, cover Important, subjects, Interview people of note and prominence 
in motion pictures, and work wit* manufacturers and producers for the con- 
tinued advancement, gro«ua and progress of this wonderful Industry that 
is creating new history for Cnllfoni.-i and the world. 

All courtesies and favors extended "Capt. Jack" Poland aa a member of 
the editorial staff of Photoplayers' Weekly will be heartily appreciated and 
reciprocated by the publishers of tbla paper. 

This well known wl-Her will beat be" remembered among motion picture 
people aa the former editor and manager of Static Flashes, which during Its 
existence wan recognised u one of tbe newsiest weekly papers ever issued 
la picture fields. It la a pleasure to Welcome him among other representative 
writers and specialists now jwlth Photoplayers' Weekly. The Only Exclusive 
Motion Picture Newspaper In the World. 



MOVIE TRUST DECISION. 

Judge OicslniBu's swiwpLift oeclsloJ! lb (he Untied States District Court at 
Philadelphia, tbstt the Generai Film Company waa In fact a "troat" In the 
meaning of the Sherman law wilt undoubtedly cause a great readjustment 1/ 
tbe motion picture business in so fur as It relates to the arms Involved In 
tbe decision, it la a Utile early, yet to tell Just bow the decision will affect 
thB Industry in Lea Angeles, which la today recognised as tbe center ol tbe 
Industry. 

As tbe production of pictures Is contingent on the public demand there 
seems to he no reason why a curtailment of production should result- In fact. 
It anything, the production should be greater than ever. 

Heretofore tbe Motion Picture Patents Company has sued every Inde- 
pendent producer of pictures and made them "give up" thousands of dollars 
or quit Some producers bad ceased production rather than be held up — others 
paid. Wii.h tbe field free end no chance for further suits independent pro- 
ducers should find encouragement In a situation that places them on an equal 
footing aa far as production goes v.-lth tbe General Film Company. 

Thomas Parsons, general manager of Selig western plants, la quoted as 
saying tbet from 43 to 53 branch offices of his company will have to be 
discontinued. Selgmuud Lubin, head of U« Lubln company of Philadelphia, 
thinks an entire readjustment of tbe motion picture business is now Impera- 
tive. "This re-arrangement will Involve millions of expense and mean a big 
loss." he said. "Tbe General Film Company was organised from the leading 
motion picture company of the country to facilitate the handling of Dims and 
their distribution throughout tbe country. The films of Lubln, sells, Vria. 
graph, Edison. Kline, Bssenay, Blograpb, Pa the and Kalem have been dis- 
tributed through she General Film Company, an organisation that represents 
$"0,000,000. Ho etttesupt will -be made to carry the fight further. We wilt have 
to readjust tbe business to conform to tbe law."

Princess, one of the two Sumatra 
tigers of the Universal roo, . created 
considerable excitement at San Pedro 
when she escaped from the trainers 
and made (or the business section dt 
the city, Thekeepariand members 6T 
the company gave chase. Turning on 
them, the enraged beast attacked one 
of them. Two shots were fired at heir, 
one of which took effect. She turned, 
then and ran. She was caught later 
and returned to the picture city. 

Ulysses Davit, former director with 
the western Vitagraph company, this 
week joined the Universal City forces 
Mere he is to direct the action of 
Hobart Bosworth in the production of 
Universal Broadway features. 

More than two hundred girl stu- 
dents of the Los Angeles Polytechnic 
High school visited Universal City at 
the invitation of the company officials, 
they were shown throughout the plant 
and saw a number 'of the producing 
companies at work. Later it happened 
that Otis Turner was staging several 
scenes in which they could be used 
and they were granted permission to 
get into I lie in. This was made even 
more of a treat by the fact that J. 
Warren Kerrigan was playing the 
leading role in the production. 

Officials at Universal City arc still 
wondering whether or not they are 
victims of a practical joker, They 
this week received a communication 
evidently from a well-known hosiery 
manufacturing company asking for 
permission to establish a branch 
agency at the picture city. They even 
went so far as to enclose a tingle 
sample of their hose. 'Inasmuch as 
there are no one-legged men about 
the city, it is doublful*f it ever sees 
active service. 

Jacques Jaccard, former director of 
the Kcrrigan-Vietaa^company, this 
week Started production on the first 
of what is to become a series of five- 
reel western features, starring Harry 
Carey, The first of the scries was 
written by Carey himself under the 
title, "A Knight of the Plains." Every 
member of the company will be an 
adept at "topping broncs." That is 
one of the two things Jaccard insists 
upon. The other is that they be real 
actors with it Olive Fuller Golden, 
daughter of the founder of the White 
Rats, is to play feminine leads oppo- 
site Carey.

AT "LASKYHURST" 

(By Kenneth McGjfTcy) 

According to word received from 
Blanche Sweet, the Lasky star, now 
■n Hew York it will take a special 
train to bring her trunks to California. 
She writes that she has purchased all 
of the new gowns in sight and is out 
with a spy-glass looking ior more 
Heretofore Miss Sweet has designed 
her own gowns, but when she discov- 
ered that she had sixteen changes as 
the, twin sisters in "The Secret Sin," 
she discharged herself as designer and 
engaged one that did nol have to act. 
On account of the dull season in 
New York, the easterners along Fifth 
avenue are planning to give the Lasky 
star a loving cup on her departure for 
Hollywood. 

Immediately upon arriving in Cali- 
Fornit !or his long engagement in the 
"Chiminic Paddcn" scries, Victor 
Moore hunted ut> the United Stales 
consul and renounced his allegiance 
to his former country. He is now a 
native »on and can lie about the 
weather, liTag about the good road* 
and sing "I Love You, California" 
with the best of 'em. The one fly in 
his ointment is the fact that his wife, 
Emma Littlcficld, still keeps the New 
York license tag on their automobile. 

Minncttc Barrett, one of the best- 
known actresses on the American 
stage, has been engaged by the Lasky 
Company as a member of the all-star 
stock organisation. 

One of the biggest sets ever built 
by the Lasky Company is now being 
erected on the Hollywood stage, for 
"Mr. Grex of Monte Carlo." It is the 
entire lir:-i floor of the big casino. 

Since he has returned from his vaca- 
tion, Ceeil R. DeMille, director general, 
of the Lasky company, has been able 
to go through some of his back cor- 
respondence, -which heretofore be has 
been loo busy to attend to. 

Jeaie L. Lasky it now endeavoring 
to arrange whh the Santa Pe railroad 
to have them put a new production 
outside of (heir car windows. The 
head of the Lasky company has trav- 
eled over the road so often between 
the studio and New York that he says 
he knows every set piece and back* 
drop of the scenery along the entire 
road. He suggested that Instead of 
using their desert set all thctime the 
railroad should send it back to the 
paint frame, have it touched up and 
fake up some good-looking water stuff 
for these hot days. He even offered to 
lend them a canoe from the prop 
room. 

The first work done on "Mr. Grex of 
Monte Carlo" were some night scenes 
in Laurel canyon. The company 
worked from o'clock until $ o'clock 
in the morning. Carlyle Blftxkwell,

PHOTOPLAYERS' WEEKLY 



AT INCEV1LLE 
By Kenneth CHars 
Billic Burke is having "the happiest 
experience ol her life". That is rather 
. a brad statement, but the truth of ii 
is attested by the fact that she said so 
herself during the course of an inter- 
view the granted this week in her 
elaborate dressing quarters at the big 
i New York motion picture plant in the 
Santa Monica mountains. 

Miss Burke has been extremely 
busy since her arrival on the coast- 
For a week the work progressed slow- 
ly became of the fact that the dainty 
artist was making her debut before 
the, camera. There was no time then 
for interviews. 

The second week, too, was too'' 
crowded with schedule work to admit 
of such time-consuming things as in- 
terviews. So interviewers were po- 
litely turned away with instructions to 
return at a time when Miss Burke 
would be better able to devote a few 
minutes to talking instead of acting. 

Tliat tiiiic presented itself this week, 
when Miss. Burke found herself, with 
nothing to do but keep cool and com- 
fortable .in her palatial "nest" in the 
canytifa. Ince was busy making some 
scenes, with William H. Thompson 
and other important members of the 
supporting cast, so he gently informed 
his celebrated- star that she iiiiplit 
rest, if she so chose. Consequently 
she repaired to her reception room, 
and, reclining leisurely on a luxurious 
divan, -made herself ready to receive 
callers. 

"I am having the happiest time nf 
my life." said the tit ian-h aired star. 
after she had greeted her visitor with 
the winning smile that has made mill- 
ions love her. "I really never bc- 
, licved it could be possible for mc to 
so thoroughly enjoy the experience. 
Of course, 1 knew it would be a new 
iphere for mc in which to work, but 
I did not think For a moment that I 
would be able to combine work with 
, pleasure. And yet 1 cannot remem- 
ber when I have ever had a better 
time. Mr. Ince has been so lovely to 
ma that J feel like a queen. His pa- 
tience has been little short of remark- 
able. You know, what 1 didn't know 
about moving pictures when I came 
out here would fill many volumes. In 
■ fact, I had only twice gone to a pic- 
ture theater. 

"They can say what they like, but 1 
was truly nervous the first time I 
stepped in front of the camera, May- 
he I didn't indicate it. but I was. Per- 
haps it was because I had no lines to 
speak; perhaps it was because I had 
to act within prescribed lines— side- 
lines. I heard Mr. Ince call them and 
perhaps it was because I was afraid 
that I would stare into the tens. But 
Mr. Ince persuaded me to place confi- 
dence in him. I did, and 1 realized, 
on the second day, that the nervous- 
ness has completely left me. 

"Oh, I think it just wonderful, this 
photo-play business. I admire every- 
thing I see about the studio, admire 
it with a sincerity, and yet, frankly. I 
can't help laughing at some of the 
things I have seen. For instance, the 
way they take the scenes. First they 
make you say "good-bye" and exit and 
then maybe an hour or two later they 
make you enter. You know what I 
mean — ba ckwards 1 
"But I like it; yes, like it immense- 
■ ly. Not because of its novelty, but 



because ot its educational value. Oh, 
how I wish 1 had known several years 
ago what I know new about panto- 
mime. Within these few weeks I have 
learned more about pantomime than 
I could have hoped to 1 learn on the 
legitimate stage in a life time. I can 
see how much better I could have 
played certain porta had I penciled 
the knowledge of pantomime that I do 
now." 

The subject in which Miss Burke Is 
starring is a little less' than half fiu- 

Plans for the ground-breaking of 
the twelve-acre tract at Culver City, 
where Producer Thomai H, Ince will 
erect a new $30,000 studio for the pro- 
duction of luce-Triangle features, are 
assuming concrete fomi, this week. 
According to an announcement made 
ftom Inccvitle, the epoch-making 
event will lake place within another 
fortnight. Architects have completed 
their pJans for the structure work and 
the various contractors of Southern 
California arc now bidding on the job. 
With bids in by the end of next week, 
the contract will immediately he let 
and work commenced. 

Robert Brunton, noted throughout 
the country, hut especially in the Mid- 
die West, as an artistic director of the 
first calibre, is the latest acquisition 
to the ranks of Producer Thomas H. 
Ince. He arrived this week and w 
now cxpcditinK hi* imtiM as chief 
technical director under the supervi- 
sion, of course, of Ince himself. 

Bruce McKac, Hit popular Broad- 
way lcadin K man. who is supporting 
Bessie Barriscalc in a current Incc- 
Triangle feature, received a letter litis 
week that has turned the actresses of 



rifle 



It 



from Mr. 
McKae's cousin, a major in the British 
army, and contained a pitiful plea lor 
woolen mittens, sweaters and other 
such articles of apparel that will help 
to keep his soldiers warm during itlc 
coming winter nTOBtttS in the trenches. 
Dated from England, whence the 
writer was about to sail again for Che 
front, the letter read in part; "It is 
good to pet letters over there in 
France, from you, Bruce, so drop mc 
n line occasionally. And if you know 
any-knitting societies or things of that 
kind, I wish you would please ask 
them to send you some of their knit- 
tings, so that you can send tlicm to 

me- You sec. I've got a regiment of 
my own now, and I don't want the 
boys to suffer any more than they 
have to during the cold winter months 
that are coming. Best luck ever to 
you and yours."

Swimming, walking and picture 
BtlOWS are the hobbies of Haniel (lil 
fcTlier, the polished old actor who is 
prominent in so many Balboa feature 
films. It is unfair in accuse him of 
being aged, in spite of the fact that Ju- 
lias passed sixty, for he is younger 
than most youths, but for the annual 
iiiilCMoncs he has passed.

William S. Hart, America's premier 

pretation,. with Clara Williams, his 
lcadina woman, and Jack Standing,

In the forlhroiuing production of 
the Lasky company of James Forbes" 
comedy-drama, "The Chorus Lady," 
fifty of the prettiest girls in Holly- 
wood and Los Angeles will be seen on 
the screen. Many of these young wo- 
men, home from school during the 
late summer, were enthusiastic lo a-:t 
before the camera and several of the 
scenes of the photoplay production 
show a large musical comedy chorus 

Edna Goodrich i* at the Lanky stu- 
dios delighted with her new work of 
acting before the camera. It \, the 
first experience as a photoplay star 
which this beautiful American actre** 
ha* had, and *he has "caught the 
fever" as badly a* did Gcraldine Far- 
rar, who was at the studios all sum- 
mer. Miss Goodrich i* under a long- 
term contract with the Lasky com- 
pany and announcement that she has 
become a Paramount star hat been 
enthusiastically 'received by exhibitor* 
and the public throughout the eottn- 
fry. 




"SALVATION NELL" 
- Nell Shiptnan, the popular photo- 
dramatist, ha* covered her»elf with 
new glory by establishing the unique 
record of writing, acting in, and co- 
directing with Mr. Kerrigan, the 
three-reel feature entitled "The Trou- 
badour of El Dorado." 

This wa* the last of four feature* 
especially written for Mr. Kerrigan 
by Mis* Shipman at Lake Tahoe, and 
wo* finished complete in five days 
without one foot of retake being nec- 
essary. 

Mr. Kerrigan and the "boys" showed 
their appreciation of this speed and 
" by christening Mis* Shift- 
"is Nell,"' 



allow of their picture work in the day 
time, thus permitting Hie »creener» to 
maintain their grip upon t |, c .peaking 
stage and to add an extra salary to 
their exchequer. 

"While enroute to a location where 
a great battle scene in -The Coward," 
the five-part lncc-T riangle feature, 
was filmed, Frank Keenan, the star, 
dressed in Confederate «ray, pawed 
the home for war veterans, which is 
located at Santa Monica, a few miles 
from lncevillc. One of the veterans 
of the Civil war, dressed In blue, sa- 
Icd Kccnau as he drove by, Keenan 



led the 






his machine lo explain tha: 
going to a moving picture battle. A* 
a result of the conversation which fol- 
lowed, the old soldier accompanied 
Keenan to the scene of tlic battle, and 

there, by the permission of Thomas 
H. Ince, the old soldier joined the 
aetOTI on the Union side and all day 
long fought through rjte many thrill- 
iug scenes, Ir, fact, by night he 
seemed lo have dropped twenty years 
in his age and was leading a com- 
pany of bis own in one of the cllKfgci. 

Come* now VV. C Seal of Uncle 
Sam's navy, and claims lo he the real 
"Weal of the Navy." Not that his ca- 
reer resembles the thrilling life o( the 
hero of Hie patriotic photo-play se- 
rial which Balboa f« filming lor Path.-, 
1,1,1 Realise of his last name this man 
ii known in the service as "Xeal n r the 
Navy," alio. VV. C Ncal is a chief 
yeoman and hns served his country 
eight years. At present he is attached 
to the reuniting office in Sa n Fran- 
cisco. He is one of the most inter- 
ested followers .ii the big Balboa pic- 
ture play, and say* it gives a true pic- 
ture of nz\y life. 

N'ot long ana a picture producing 
company announced that it had ac- 
quired the screen rights to "Davy 
Crocket" from the Mayo estate, Prank 
Mayo 111, one of Balboa'* leadin K 
men, denies this. From his illustrious 
grandfather. Frank Mayo of "Davy 
Crocket" and 'Tuddin' Head Wilson" 
fame, the present Frank Mayo inher- 
ited the rights to the said play?. 

Since moving pictures have become 
so popular, Long Beach erstwhile 
baseball fans have no further interest 
in the national sport. As a conse- 
quence, Business Manager Mannin R 
«f the Balboa company is wrecking 
the grandstand and bleachers. The 
lumber will be used lo make further 
ciilarjjcments at the studio. Thus it is 
*ccn that everything finds its way into 

the movies, wotier or later.

MAJOR COMNENU9 PALAEOLOGUS 



djced there during the past twelve 

mont hs. ■ * 

.■..■"major's "connection tSBTTSm-" 
venal production dales from about 
tbis time last year when Francis Ford 
engaged him for his Indian Mutiny 
story "The Campbells are Coining." 
After this feature production was 
completed he remained with the 
Francis Ford-Grace Cunard combina- 
tion for some time playing amongst 
others the part of one of the bad men 
in "Three Bad Men and a Girt/ 
Oriental, Central African and military 
production are bis forte, however and 
he was next engaged with the J. War- 
ren Kerrigan company producing the 
"Terranee O'Rourke" series. 

The Major's greatest work was m 
'■Under the Crescent," the twelve-reel 
Egyptian feature directed by Burton 
King— featuring the Princess Hassan 
—the finest Oriental picture produced 
in America. The major played the 
part of the aide-de-camp to the pnnce 
—designed the costumes which, were 
,„adc especially for this production- 
helped the technical department in de- 
signing the elaborate sets and pro- 
perties — passed j udgmettt on th e 
make-up of the heuad**** of eatra 
People—and was on hand to inform 
the director of the manners, eustoms, 
and other details pertaining to the 
everyday life of the Egyptian people. 

■ The success of this picture was in a 
great measure due to the ability and 
oriental knowledge and experience of 
the major, » whom Director Burton 
King fonwd an enthusiastic and valuV 
hle assistant 

Major Palaeologus has had a very 
unique and interesting career. He 
■was born in Constantinople, his 
mother being the daughter of the 
British military attache to the Otto- 
man Porte, his father a high military 

' official of the Sultan's service. He is 
a graduate of the University of Con- 
stantinople, an officer of the Third 
Nizam Cavalry, Imperial Ottoman 
Army; has seen active service in four 
Turkish campaign!, including the 
Turfco-Greek war of 1897, and was 
military attache from the Ottoman 
Government to the British forces in 
the South African -war of 1899-1902. 
The Major has honied big game in 
bom India and Africa, and is one of 
the very few who have mad* the Cape 
to Cairo traverse. 

Previous to the Young Turk revolu- 
tion -of 1408, 'the major was ior-iCT- 



times, which occupied the throne and 
controlled the destiny of the Greek 
or ~ BysantmX" Empire of"~Coir»tan- 
tinople, during the last four hundred 
of that great empire's eleven hundred 
and thirty years of existence, previous 
to the Turkish conquest in 1453. 

After the revolution of 1908, and 
previous to his connection with the 
Universal Film Manufacturing Com- 
pany, the major circumnavigated the 
globe six times, acting as companion- 
courier to families and private parties, 
lo whom his extensive and intimate 
knowledge of Greece, Turkey, Pales- 
tine, Asia Minor, Egypt and India. 
and general knowledge of all Europe, 
Asia, Africa, America and Australia, 
made him a valuable traveling com- 
panion. The major ia also something 
of a lecturer and journalist — he has 
lectured on Oriental affairs before 
nearly all of the most prominent clubs 
of California — and is the author of 
"The Love Stories of the Ages," the 

scries of two-column stories which 

appeared three times weekly in the 
Hearst newspapers during the spring 
and summer of 1914. 

Whilst the major has been a great 
traveler and has conducted all kinds 
and conditions of people around the 
world, there is still one thing he 
wishes to do — and that is — to take a 
swing around the circle with a n»*tioti 
picture company, Universal preferred, 
but if that is not forthcoming, with 
any aggregation which will put up the 
money and honestly endeavor to pro- 
duce the results which his invaluable 
services arc entitled to.

AT MILLER'S THEATER 

Valeska Sural, the "Red Rose of 

the Great White Way," and America's 

fashion plate, will be seen at Miller's 

for one week, starting Monday, in the 

wonderful Fok masterpiece, "The Soul 
of Broadway." This production mark* 
an epoch in the art of the silent dra-

bine fire, niac-nclisni and power. The 
story is one that shows the flaring 
lights and dark shadows of the "Great 
White Way"; revealing the heart of 
the big city with all its good and evil 
impulses. Many intimate scenes ol" 
New York life and people are shown, 
and Mr. Brenon, who wrote, con- 
ceived and produced the picture, may 
well be proud of his work, Mr, Fox 
gave him carte blanche in the matter 
of expense and nothing has been left 
undone to make it the screen event of 
the hour. The added feature is the 
second of the famous J. Rufus VVaJl- 
ingford comedies entitled "Three 
Rings and a Goat," a circus story in 
which J. Rufus and his crony Blackic 
Daw, sell a circus they don't owi. 
FJgeh of these comedies are complete 
i-.i themselves and will be enjoyed by 
both the young and old. 



PLAYERS HAVE HEARTS 
IN THEIR PRODUCTIONS 

Few movie fans have not wondered 
at times ii their favorite players really 
lived in parts in which they appear, 
Because of the consistently Interesting 
work they do it would seem that their 
whole heart was wrapped up in their 
work, but when one considers that 
they must work all day, six days s 
week, it would seem that they would 
in time come to regard their efforts 
merely as "work" and not pay so 
much attention to quality. 

Mr. Tyrone Power, featured star of 
the Selig Polyscope Company, who 
recently made his debut In this com- 
pany's Red Seal play "A Texas Steer," 
made an Interesting statement anent 
this matter recently, 

"The question of commerci silting 
art," said Mr. Power, "Is largely a 
question of individuals. As In other 
pursuits, (Jit stage has men whose sots 
aim is the dollar mark. Luckily, how- 
ever, these are in the minority and the 



who plat 



the 



i why 



art 
There 



should deny himself and herself any 
of the necessities of life in order to 
better art, but there Is lets reason why 
they should neglect their art and use 
ii merely as a means to. gain fiiianchl 
reward. 

"It is the player who strikes a happy 
balance between com me retail am and 
iirt that is the real success, both on 
ihe stage and In real life. He gives hia 
entire time and thought to his work, 
while engaged In it, and Uvea every 
part he portrays. Away from the stu- 
dio or theater, however, he ii like all 
others— just a man— and there Is no 
reason why he should not Have gained 
sufficient rewards, for hia labors to fol- 
low his inclinations, as others do," 



A few photoplay directors believe In 

tailing a spade a spade and then using 
ii to dig lip somebody's past. 

I Ford cars and movie actors have 
ifiuch In common.

SPECIAL ITEMS FROM INCEVILLE 

KENNETH A. O'HARA. Publtoity Director, and BARNEY BARNARD 



Thomas H, Ince has been Initired 
(or $250,000. The beneficiary is the 
New York Motion Picture Corpora- 
tion and the itep haa been taken to 
guard that concern 1 ! intereit in the 
Triangle Film Corporation, for which 
Ince ii now making hie multiple-reel 
photo dramas. 

Six big American companies share 
the responsibility of compensating the 
Keisel and Baumanit organization in 
the event of loss to it, by death, of 
Tliomai H. Ince, the great producer. 
Tlicy arc the Mutual Benefit of New- 
ark, N. J., 57S.OOO; Pennsylvania Mu- 
tual of Philadelphia, $50,000; Mutual 
Life of New York, f.SO.000; "Travelers' 
of Hartford, Conn., $50,000; Pruden- 
tial of Newark, N. J., $25,000; and the 
Equitable of New York. $50,000. The 
latter amount w». taken out only to 
cover b contingency which might arise 
through a possible hitch in the pro- 
eeedings. 

Two hundred and fifty persons wCf* 

engaged at Inceville this week, in sup- 
port of Bessie Barrlscale, appearing in 
the big masquerade ball scenes of the 
current Ince-Trian K lc feature in which 
Miss Barriscalc will be starred, and 
for which a mammoth hall-room set- 
ting was erected on the main stage, 

Not, perhaps, since Ince staged his big 
fairy stories last winter, has Mich a 
gorgeous array of costumes been seen 
at the hig plant. All colors of the rain- 
bow arc in evidence, as the procession 
of merry-makers winds its way about 
the stage, and the deplorable fact is, 
most of the participjants (him, that 
the camera cannot photograph color. 
Miss Barrlscale herself appeared in a 
vari-colored domino gown, and Bruce 
McRae, the Broadway leading man, 
supporting her in the principle male 
role, was garbed in a unique ereali-m 
of purple and white. 

An entire new western village waajf 
erected this week at Inceville for 1MB-;- 
in the production in which William &.*■ 
Hart is to be starred. The buildings 
are twenty-si* in number. There ia n 
dance-hall, saloon, laundry, livery, 
boarding house, etc. Each ia sturdily 
built. This additional work and con- 
sumption of material were made nec- 
essary by reason of the fact that the 
entire aet ii lo be baraed. folloi 
the fUjBie«-Qf-tKj!rJM!i 
within it?The fire wMe* Tfelroy*

duction are Clara Williams and Jack

she was working under the personal

whom the great producer recently an- 
nexed to his staff of writers. 

That "The Coward," the five part 
luce-Triangle Civil War drama, in 
which Frank Kcenan makes his debut 
as a screen star, is not only the best 

production ever made, but the 

exhibited by the Triangle, was 

consensu* of opinion among the 

York dramatic critics, following 
its premiers on Monday, October 4, 
according to advices received this 
week at the Inceville studios of the 
New York Motion Picture Corpora- 
Producer Thomas H. Ince employed 
the long-distance telephone from Los 
Angeles to Chicago, this week, to en- 
gage another man for his staff. The 
man is J. Parker Reed, well-known in 
motion picture circles as a promoter 
and producer of features, and his pres- 
ence at Inceville will, it is believed, 
add strength to the general producing 
forces at the plant.

AT THE GARRICK 

Mary Pickford, "Queen of the 
Movies," has a truly royal role in the 
photoplay production of "Such a Little 
Queen," which tops the bill that opens 
Sunday at the Garrick theater. As the 
appealing little sovereign who is tem- 
porarily without a throne or a king- 
dom, "Little Mary" shows all the 
charm and grace that made her fa- 

Thc plot of the play, which made a 
big hit on the legitimate stage, is an 
intensely interesting one. It deals with 
the queen of a small kingdom who is, 
forced to flee after her troops are de- 
feated by those of a pretender to the 
throne. She comes to this country and 
as her finances get lower and lower 
she is forced into several delightfully 
humorous situations. 

The cast is an excellent one and the 
play ia well mounted throughout. As 
there is a delightful love theme in it, 
it has an appeal from every angle. 
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 
only, the latot thrilling installment of 
"The Diamond from the Sky" will 
also be shown. 



Mr. Kolker will soon be Hta on 
the screen In the Holfe-Metro fea-

prior to Mr. Kami's leaving, starting 
with a theater party at the Garriek 
theater, where they witnessed "The 
Tempters" and listened to Kanny 
jokes sod Universal funnyisms across 
the footlights, during which the or- 
chestra played the Universal fox-trot. 
After the performance the gay party 
repaired to Busts noby** celebrated 
cafe, where a feast of tempting viands 
and other good thins* were enjoyed. 
During the dinner Vice- President R. 
H. Cochrane, 'Manager Joe' Brandt 'of 
tbe New York offices, Julius Stem and 
Other representative guests spoke 
highly of the newly elected business 
manager beaded for tbe California stu- 
dios of the Universal. Amidst gifts 
and appreciated sentiments, George 
Kann was given one of the moat en- 
thusiastic send-offs ever accorded a 
motion-picture official. 

An especially appreciated gift was 
a soljd silver cigarette case with Mr. 
Kann's initials inscribed on -the out- 
side in gold aid inside with the in- 
scription, "Yetirs for Universal Pros- 
perity, October 2, 1915." 

With this rousing good-bye meeting, 
the newly selected business manager 



left his home city and is now "making 
good" along the same lines at the big 
Pacific coast plant. 

We welcome you to Los Angeles 
anoUlriiyersal City, GcorKC.Kaji_ni.and 
hope your success here will be equally 
as bright and successful as was your 
achievements in the New York offices 
of the Universal Film Manufacturing 
Company. 



What promises to be the most not- 
able screen organisation of the coun- 
try is tbe newly formed Motion Pic 
turc Directors' Association of Loa An- 
geles. MBnyj.Leading directors of the 
larger firm -producing concerns have 
become members. It is proposed to 
secure the co-operation of every rep- 
resentative director in the United 
States, Canada and Europe, as resi- 
dent and non-resident members. 

To become an active member of the 
association the applicant mutt have 
had one year's practical experience as 
a director of pictures, and be properly 
recommended by active members in 
good standing. The proposed mem- 
ber must also have a prestige and rep- 
utation befitting his associates. The 
idea being not to make (lie associa- 
tion too exclusive, but thoroughly rep- 

Arrangefiitnts are being completed 
for* he establishment of a comfortable 
club house and official rendezvous, 
presumably to be located in the 
heights of the Hollywood section of 
Los Angeies, where nearly all the 
local studios and motion-picture col- 
onics now producing pictures in Cali- 
fornia arc located. 

The association was incepted for the 
purpose of advancing the cause of pic- 
ture productions and lo bring direc- 
tors closer together, socially and pro- 
fessionally. To stimulate the highest 
class of development into the hearts 
and brains of its members. 

Social functions will be frequent

honor of prominent screen stars, man-

tributed dolls, specialties and their

tbe last night of the bio- event, and it 
is expected that thousands of people 
will be in attendance.

Efforts of Boosters Meeting With 

Some Success — Temporary 

Officers Elected 

Another meeting of photo players, 
newspaper correspondents and others 
who believe in the fraternity, was held 
rtt Hoffman's cafe Thursday evening, 
and steady progress reported by the 
Irmporary officers and membership 

Because of the organization of the 
Motion Picture Directors' Associa- 
tion, which is hacked by many former 
representative members of the late 
Photoplayers' Club, the enthusiasm 
was not as strong as it might be. Yet 
the boys at the helm of the reorgan- 
ization movement feel confident of 
making a success of the proposed club. 
The organizers, have the co-operation 
of such well-known newspaper cor- 
respondents as Clarke Irvine of the 
Moving Picture World-Pacific Coast 
staff, who is temporary secretary, and 
J. C. Jesseo, Pacific coast manager for 
the Motion Picture News, heads a 
committee searching for suitable club 
headquarters. 

The invitation to attend the organ- 
ization meetings are interesting 
achievements of Mr. Irvine, and it 
looks as though a club will be per- 
fected that will add pleasure to. tbe 
social events attending the Los An- 
geles representatives of the moving- 
plcture fraternity backing It, 

Fred Mace is announced aa tempo- 
rary president, A! W. Filson as tem- 
porary treasurer, and Del Henderson, 
former president of the old" Photo- 
players' Club, is named at the new 
vice-president.

OTHEMAN STEVENS TALKS 
ABOUT MUCH REAL MONEY 

Noted Dramatic Reviewer Mentions a 
Few Items About Big Tri- 
angle Producers 

The following news Story written by 
that gifted portrayer of professional 

matter, Otheman Stevens, reads aw- 
fully good. As it appears in the Ex- 
aminer and is royally backed up, it is 
a pleasure to reprint it in Photoplayers 
Weekly. 

"This Triangle photoplay company 
has begun its drive. 

"It seems to have pierced the speak- 
ics" first and second lines of defense 
and is reasonably expecting to lake in 
quite a few million dollars during the 
coming year. 

It has three model picture theaters 
open now, the Knickerbocker in New 
York, the Studebaker in Chicago and 
recently the Chestnut street opera 
house in Philadelphia. 

"This is the combination made of 
three big producers hereabouts — 
Thomas H. Ince, Mack Scnnett and 
David W. Griffith. 

"Just a little money has fallen into 
their strong box already. 

"H. A. Sherman has paid them $250,- 
000 for the rights to show- "The Birth 



of a Nation" in sixteen western states. 
"W. H. Kemble of the Crescent 

theater in Brooklyn has contracted for 
all rights in Brooklyn to the Triangle 
pictures for the sum of $750,000. 

The company's productions now 
playing at the Knickerbocker in New 
York are Frank Keenan, in "The Cow- 
ard," the Griffith players in "Old Heid- 
elberg"; Raymond Hitchcock in "Sto- 
len Maggie," and Eddie Foy in "A 
Favorite Fool" (the story does not 
say whether with or without the cus- 
tard pie face emolient), and a booking 

system has been devised to cover the 
entire country. 

"Something of a business. Eh? 
What? 

"And this is only a part of the entire 
lot of producers here who spend be- 
tween twelve and twenty million dol- 
lars a year in our midst 

"Not that we' need the money at all 
— but it is an agreeable detail of the 
alliance of art and business." 



Richard Stanton is producing anoth- 
er multiple reel serial entitled "Graft." 
The story and scenarios were written 
by Joe Brandt, manager of the New 
York office of the Universal Company, 
and Hugh Weir, well-known news- 
paper and magazine writer. Hobaft 
Henley will appear in the leading role.

BREAK GROUND FOR 

NEW INCE STUDIO 

Big Celebration Held at Colver City 

this Week in Which Movies 

Predominate 

Official ground-breaking at the new 
Ince tract ai Culver Cily, where 
Thomas H. Incc will erect a new $50,- 
000 studio (or the production o! inc;- 
Triangle features, was held this week 
amid simple but impressive ceremo- 
nies. Surrounded by a galaxy of stars, 
whose aggregate yearly incomes ap- 
proximate three-quarters of a million 
dollars, Ince, himself, pushed a silver 
spade into ihe earth and the formality 
of the occasion was over. 

Due to the dynamic activities cur- 
rent, at the IneevtHe plant in the Santa 
Monica mountains, it was found im- 
possible to bold an elaborate celebra- 
tion of the event. It was lace's sin- 
cere wish, however, that all of his em- 
ployes be in attendance if only for a 
fev'mttivtea. So promptly at noon 
work at Inceville ceased and the some 
five hundred actors, actresses, mechan- 
ics sad others from the New York 
Motien Picture Corporation jumped 
into automobiles, costumes, make-up 
and all, and were whirled ten miles to 
Culver City. 

Scarcely had he stepped from his 
machine when Thomas H. Ince hur- 
ried to the spot selected for the 
ground-brewing and, enlisting the at- 
tention of his subordinates, turned 
QV^r the first spadeful of earth. Flank- 
tfur him on either side were such dis- 
tinguished stars of the stage a* Frank 
Keenan. Biilie Borke, William S. Hart, 
Bessie Barriscale, Wary Boland. Will- 
am H. Thompson. Bruce McRae, K. 
B, Warner, Frank Mills, Truly Sbat- 
tack and William Desmond and inch 
equally prominent celebrities of the 
61m world as Clara Williams, Louise 
Glaum, Enid Markey. Jack Standing. 
Margaret Thompson, Charles Ray, 
Bamey Sherry and Howard Hickman. 
,AD of the foregoing are to be seen in 
the near future In Ince-Trlangle fea- 
tures.. 

Immediately following the ground- 
breaking, Ince addressed a few re- 
marks to titOfC gathered about him.

Ralboa studio;, not his older brother 
Maclyn, of legitimate stage fame. Yet 
the two look enough alike to be peas 



of the 






"Andy" Arbuckle is also a comedian 
and a good one. too. Some of Ihe 
best work in his entire career has 
been done in Balboa feature films re- 
cently. He came to the Horkhcimer 
brothers with a good reputation for 
work done at Lasky's and in a num- 
ber of Griffith's pictures. 

Born in Texas, the year that Grovcr 
Cleveland first became president, An- 
drew Arbuckle has had a varied ca- 
reer. He began his young manhood 
in mercantile pursuits. But seeing 
how easy his older brother made 
money on the stage, "Andy" thought 
he'd have a try. So he organised a 
quartet and went into vaudeville. 
Then he played in several sketches. 

Coming to the Pacific coast, he 
thought he'd have a try at the picture 
game. Being fat and good-natured.

in "The Woman." Next he played in 
"Old Heidelberg" under the direction 
of John Emerson. He was also in 
"Peer Gynt" with Cyril Maude and 
"The Reformed Candidate" with his 
brother Maclyn. 

Since joining the Balboa company, 
Andrew Arbuckle hai had a rapid 
rise. In a five-reel production entitled 
"A Message from Rome," he is fea- 
tured with Ruth Roland. For charac-

The lollowinf* interesting story ap- 
pears In Motogrsphy, the Chicago mo- 
tion picture trade journal, under date 
of October 23: 

"California ii just as good ai it ever 
was" for motion picture making, and 1 
like It Immensely, but New York of- 
fers facilities (or producing elaborate 
features which outweigh alt the con- 
siderations of climate and consistent 
atmospherical conditions which arc 
the Golden Slate's biggest assets." 

This declaration was made by 
Francis X. Bushman at the Metro 
offices in the Heidelberg building, in 
announcing the fact that he intended 
making his permanent headquarters 
in the East. Mr. Bushman arrived in 
New York from the Quality- Metro 
studios in Holly-woo.!. Cal., last Sat- 
urday, bringing with him the first 
print to reach (his city of "Penning- 
ton's Choice," the Utcil production of 
the Quality Pictures Corporation (or 
the Metro program and the first Metro 
rejease starring the beautiful Beverly 
Baync with Mr. Bushman. 

He was accompanied by Miss Bayne, 
Lester Cunco and Helen Dunbar. 
Other members of the company 
reached New York early this week 
and will at once begin work on two 
important screen productions. 

The first will be a picturizatien of 
"The Yellow Dove." a stirring ro- 
mance of the international secret serv- 
ice by George Gibbs. The other will 
be "Richard Carvel," the great Win- 
ston Churchill historical romance. 

Both oi these productions are 
planned on a scale somewhat more 
elaborate than the average high-class 
feature, and in both Mr. Bushman and 
Miss Bayne will divide stellar honors. 
The interiors will be taken in' New 
York. For the exteriors of "Hieliard 
Carvel," Mr. Bushman and Miss 
Bayne will go with their company to 
Maryland and Virginia to obtain the 
requisite historical settings demanded. 

Mr. Bushman's latest pieture, re- 
leased on November 8, is "Penning- 
ton's Choice." This is a drama of 
physical prowess and is a distinct 
contrast to his last picture, "The Silent 
Voice," in which he starred with Mar- 
guerite Snow. In this ptay Mr. Bush- 
man battles with jack Jeffries and per- 
forms many feats of manly endeavor. 

Marprue rjt'f fi now- f bf pther.mcrn .frtr 
of the triumvirate of stellar talent un- 
der contract with the Quality Pic- 
tures Corporation, will remain at the 
Hollywood studio until her newest 
picture. "Rosemary— That's for Re- 
membrance," is completed. Then she, 
too, will come EasL 

The Hollywood plant win be main- 
tained by the Quality Pictures Corpo- 
ration for such pictures as the Metro 
may deem it expedient to have pro- 
duced.

anU directress with Francis Ford, is

Journal of Lord John." William Gar- 
wood Is playing the leading role In 
this feature. Each of the stories will 
be complete In Itself. 

John Nickolnus, former head of the 
laboratory department of the Univer- 
sal'* Pacific coast studios, has arrived 
on the coast after a stay of more than 
a year at the company's eastern stu- 
dios. Nickolaus is now employed in 
an executive position at Universal 
City.

vorite and vaudeville headliner, has 
started to work in Universal pictures 
under the direction of Joseph De 
Grasse, in a filmhation of George 
Ade's success, "Father and the Boys," 
The screen adaptation was arranged 
by Ida May Parle. 

The American Electric Railroad As- 
sociation and the American Eleeirie 
Railroad Manufacturers' Association 
visited at Universal City this week, 
while en route to San Diego from San 
Francisco, where they had been meet- 
ing; In convention. The Universal

along the eastern seaboard, -having: 
won several medals in those waters

ming. She Is among the most per- 
fectly formed women in ihe world, her

George Hall's powerful story of the 
underworld, "Tainted Money." 

Marjorie Lake, known along the

rival at Universal City. She has just 
ended an Orphcum engagement in

vengeance. 



One more chapter remains to be

success of it has remained unbroken, 
and it will be with a feeling of great 
relief that the company completes the 
last of the scenes.

THEDA BARA IN "CARMEN" 

AT MILLER'S THEATER 

Theda Bara, the incomparable, re- 
turns to Miller's for one week, start- 
ing Monday, in her greatest triumph, 
the title role in the far-famed dramatic 
masterpiece "Carmen." As a portray- 
er of "Vampire" roles, Mile. Bar* 
stands supreme and alone and the 
flouting, pouting gypsy flirt of Prosper 
Merimee's master work is one of the 
world of literature's most renowned 
temptresses. This role is made to 
order for Mile. Bara, who might really 
be Carmen reincarnated, with her ra- 
ven black hair that wreathes eyes that 
ever lure and mock; eyes that caress 
into forgetfulncss of duty and honor, 
that glitter in fiendish triumph over 
the dead lips that have not lived to 
Speak slightingly of another woman, 
and that coolly tantalixe the suitor 
who has accomplished his revenge. A 
complete two-reel J. Rufui Walling, 
ford comedy is the added feature. An 
extra performance will be given each 
morning at 10 o'clock, and a special 
midnight matinee will be- put on Sat- 
urday night.

Appreciating the splendid future of 
Los Angeles, Mrs. J. Isenheim, for- 
merly of Seattle, has opened an ex- 
clusive fur parlor at 835 South Broad-

tastefully equipped and a beautiful line 
of goods is shown. A specialty is be- 
ing made of the most exclusive fur 
novelties, and it is a moat interesting 
place for ladies to visit while shop- 
ping.

while on the Pacific coast, is adding

Little theater. Manager Frank Egan 
has booked the New York Little the- 
ater success, "Snow White" for the 
October 11th -opening of the Los An- 
geles play house where Blsnche Hall

picture of the same name, was called 
upon to administer an artistic thrash- 
ing to Webster Campbell. In spite of 
her tender heart and Mr. Smith's

RQMAINE FIELDING 
5T IN FROM THE CACTUS 

Popular Director Taking Real While 

Planning Fall and Winter 

Campaign 

Making his temporary headquar- 
ters at Hotel Alexandria, Romaine 
Fielding, late director and manager 
of the; Western Lubin Plant at Phoe- 
nix, * Arizona, is greeting his many 
friends and acquaintance™ while plan- 
ning a campaign for the coming sea- 
Mr. Fielding baa been connected 
with the Lubin interests for the pdst 
five years, during which time be Jias 
won prestige as an actor and director 
of ability in films. Pleasant connec- 
tion-.! were severed with the Lubin 
people because Mr. Fielding preferred 
remaining in the west, where he has 
gained his fame, to going East and 
working in inside atmosphere. Since 
arriving in Los Angeles the riling 
young director and producer has 
been the recipient of several offers 
from local studio heads. As yet he 
has not announced an acceptance, and 
it is hoped Mr. Fielding will decide 
to remain with one of the producing 
companies in [his section. 



NEW EXHIBITORS LEAGUE 

Strong Organization Formed for Pro- 
. tective and Development Purposes 

Judge A. P. Tugwell, chairman of

ganized Exhibitors League, which 
succeeds the Southern California Mo- 
tion Picture Exhibitors League. 

President Tugwell is also the head 
of the California State Exhibitors 
League. He states that the newly 
formed local organization would 
make its first bow to the public this 
winter, with a grand photoplay hall 
at Shrine Auditorium. Seth D. Per- 
kins, manager of the Mew Gerrick 
theater, has been ■ttpointed director 
general to handle this event. 

The Exhibitors' League has affili- 
ated with the national organization of 
exhibitors in order to combat adverse 
legislation and to be able to deal with 
the producers and exchanges as a 
unit.

This story was sent out by our own 
publicity writer, and it was a grievous 
mistake. Bushman was simply mak- 
ing a striking scene and his sparring 
partner was Jack Jeffries, a brother of 
the noted fighter. The bout was ex- 
citing, but no knockout blows were 
exchanged. 

We ask that you kindly correct this 
statement in your next issue, inserting 
therein the true facts as above stated. 
It is very urgent that this matter be 
rectified at once, and we kindly re- 
quest that you give same your imvue- 
date attention. 

Thanking you, we remain, 

Your, very truly,

BALBOA NEWS NOTES 

Walter J. Desmond, postmaster at 
Long Beach, Cal., has completed the 
negotiations started some time ago by 
the Balboa Amusement Producing 
Company for a million of the green 
one-cent Balboa postage stamps. This 
is one of the largest orders ever exe- 
cuted by the United States postofftcc 
department, according to the author- 



Bruce Smith might have made a 
good newspaper man if he hadn't 
taken to the stage. At the Balboa 
Studio, where he has been playing in 
pictures almost since it opened, Smith 
Is considered one of the beat news 
sources, for he recognises a story a 
mile off and never falls to "tip off" the 
press department. And seldom do the 
storW concern hhnielf. 

Hnving scoured the seven seaa be- 

itjre the ma it, buffooned Jn comic 
opera, made sood In mercantile pur- 
suits and tried hia hand aucceiafully 
at half s doitn other things, Henry 
Stanley it now rounding out an ex- 



ceptionally active career in Balboa fea- 
ture films. The dean of character 
players at the Long Beach studio is 
not related to the African explorer of 
the same name, although his .life has 
been filled with many adventures. 

Col. Harris Weiastock, head of the 
California State Industrial Commis- 
sion, who is known as the "million- 
aire commissioner," recently made an 
inspection of the Balboa studio. It 
was the first moving-picture plant he 
had ever visited. Hence, everything 
he saw proved interesting. 

Do the people who attend 'the mov- 
ing picture theaters, particularly the 
women, study the clothes worn by the - 
players? Mollic McConncll, the well- 
dressed grand dame seen in Balboa 
feature films, knows that they do. She 
receives letters from women all. over 
the country right along asking for pat- 
terns of her clothes.

in Los Angeles October 31. 

Stephen Norton is perhaps one of 
the best-known cameramen at present

has been a valued member of the Uni- 
versal staff for several years, making 
feature pictures, and is a booster for 
efficiency in the cause he so ably rep- 

A few months ago Mr. Norton was 
stricken with illness, which necessi- 
tated an operation and complete rest. 
He took an extended leave of absence, 
visited his mother at Buffalo, N. Y., 
and looked the big metropolis. New 
York City, over, met many friends, 
and returns home via toe great Pan- 
ama-Pacific International Exposition, 
wheer, chaperoned by his friend, Chief 
Cameraman W. L. Griffin of the Fa-

wonders of the big fair. 

Mr. 1 Norton is also treasurer ami

ies in the northern city. He returns

Notable Moving Picture Operator 

Slated lor Important Political 

Position on Board of Edu- 

N'ews has josi been received by 
PHOTOPLAYERS WEEKLY, stat- 
ing that Colonel William N. Selig, 
president of the famous Selig Poly- 
scope Company, had been nominated 

as a member of the Board of Educa- 
tion of Chicago. This board is among 
the most important and representa- 
tive educational bodies of the coun- 
try, and the. nomination is an honor 
highly appreciated by the motion pic- 
ture magnate, who is now in Los An- 
geles inspecting the extensive Selig 
studios and zoo. 

Co Bltrul filing jjpon-his nominations, 
Mayor Trrorrrfjson said: "I think my 
appointees are the best group of in- 
dividuals ever suggested for member- 
ship on the board." 

Mayor Thompson classifies CoL 
Selig as a self-made man and one 
4 ui lifted m every way for member- 
ship on the school board. He is 
known as one of Chicago's most in- 
fluential business men and is prob- 
ably one of the most widely read men 
of the present day. Hi* personal 
friendship with literary men and wo- 
men of high standing is also very 
extensive. For many year* Col. Se- 
lig personally read and selected ' the 
novels, short stories and original 
photoplay* submitted to his company 
for motion picture filming, and his 
conception of the style of work of 
authors of high clan is probably un- 
surpassed by any book or magazine

Firmly E«tab-

Official announcement states that 
the name of the new organization 
will be Los Angeles Pals No. 2. The 
arrangements were all completed last 
Saturday, October 30, at a rousing 
meeting at Hotel Hayward Cafe. 

It was Palsnite and Bab gave the 
boys a dinner of real game that was 
most appetising. The viand* were 
washed down with tempting liquids, 
and all Pals were happy in their con- 
tentment. 

H, Guy Woodward is Big Chief Pal 
and J. Schuyler Clark, Keeper of the 
Lucre, while Carl H. Pafcnbach is 
Scribbler. 

Big meeting will be held next 

Saturday night in honor of Major 

Edsel: W. I. Highson, Domo, Chas. Murray guest of honor, 

at 11 p. m. Bab will serve a Creole 

dinner New Orleans style. 



Henry Ford, automobile king, 
multi-millionaire, globe trotter and 
peace advocate, added new laurels to 
his steadily increasing lame and pres- 
tige by a greeting with the King of 
Beasts, a huge African lion, at the 
Universal City studios last Monday. 

Covering the huge lion with his 
steady eye, Mr. Ford stood calmly by 
while the camera artist photographed 
the scene as a special Ford -Universal 
feature. Then he grasped the animal 
by the mane and gently palled his 
great head while he quietly and fear- 
lessly backed out of the jungle scene. 

As a special guest of honor, Mr. 
Ford and his party were accorded 
many courtesies by Universal officials. 
He was accompanied by Mrs. Fcfrd 

president of the Kissel Kar company 
and B. L. Graves, distributor in 
Southern California for Ford automo- 
biles. 

The auto king was very expressive 
of the greatness of this film metrop- 
olis and the splendid grouping of the 
hundreds of buildings, studios and de- 
partment structures. Everything in 
its place and complete. 



William Wolbert is starting his 
third picture for the Vitagraph Com-

Fires started both fore and aft and

of smoke pouring from the charred 
and blackened hull. 

Although filled with several hundred

close range, ripped open the bull. The 
craft then sank, stern first, in fifteen

NEWS FROM UNIVERSAL CITY STUDIOS 

M. 0. JONAH, Publicity Manager, and PORD I. BCEBE 



By the uae of glass bottom boats, 
'Diractor Henry Olio has secured, in 
Santa Barbara Channel, ionic unusual 
undcr-watcr effecta for his produc- 
tion of the German fantasy, "Undine." 
Ma Schnall, the internationally fa- 
mous swimmer and diver who was 
employed by the Universal for this 
one .picture, performed some extraor- 
dinary feats caught by the camera 
with admirable effect. 

Paul Bourgeois, animal trainer at 
L'niversal City, was scv-cfely, al- 
most seriously, injured Monday by 
Princess, a Sumatra tigress. The big 
beast leaped at him while Director 
McGregor was staging one of the 
scenes in tlic "Recoiling Vengeance." 
The tiger fell ihort in her tint jump, 
which gave the trainer time to pre- 
pare' for the onslaught. A* >he made 
the second spring, he stepped back- 
ward and struck lier twice. Bour- 
geois was not quick enough, however, 
to prevent the tiger from reaching 
him, His clothing was torn from his 
shoulders, and he was . scratched 
about the face and neck. The train- 
er's presence of mind saved his life, 
and marks on his back called for 
several stitches to be taken in them 
at the Universal hospital, 

Lloyd CarlelOn, former Srlig and 
I.ubin producer, lias joined the Uni- 
versal City forces. He will direct 
Hobflrt Boswonh in five-reel Univer- 
sal Rroadway features. The first pro- 
duction will be a version of Bret 
Harte's play. "Two Men of Sandy 
Bar," adapted Io the screen by Olga 



second episode in the Universal se- 
rial. "Gran." 

nircctor Joseph Dcfirasae has pro- 
duced splendid results in the screen 
version of George Ade'a play, 
"Father and the Boys." Digby Bell, 
the vaudeville hcndlincr, played the 
role of father. Dc Gmile'l work in 
this feature is regarded as among the 
fastest yci recorded. 

A number of elaborate sets have 
been constructed on tile feature stage 
in anticipation of the return of Phil- 
lips Smallcy and Lois Weber and 
company of Universalites from San 
Francisco, where llicy spent len day* 
making exterior scenes in the pro- 
duction of Rufus Steele's five-reel 
story, "Hop."

A fire, suspected of having been of 
incendiary origin, des roved the $5000 
western street set at Universal City 
Monday night. The blaze first at- 
tracted the attention of the cowboys. 
By the lime they reached the scene, 
the fire bad gained too much head- 
way for any of the buildings Of the 
set io he saved. The fire fighters 
saved the remaining buildings in the 
vicinity. The fire was especially in- 
opportune, in view of the fact that 
Jacques Jaccard and company of 
western feature players had several 
scenes which they were to make in 
this street. The set was rebuilt in 
duplicate of Hie original. 



KEYSTONE SPECIALETTES OF INTEREST 

By 
FREDERICK PALMER. Publicity Manager 



For the past ten days the Keystone 
studio has absorbed the atmosphere 
of an Alabama cotton field, even to 
the Southern dialect. Ford Sterling 
is playing in a release in which he 
and a large supporting company arc 
made up in black face. In the same 
company arc several others, who. like 
Sterling, spent years behind the burnt 
cork in the large minstrel OTganiia- 
tions of the country. George Allen 
and Clarrv Lyndon of Lyndon. & 
Wren have probably walked 10,000 
miles in minstrel parades, while Guy 
Woodward spent several seasons with 
Dockstadcr and Primrose. Ster- 
lings first minstrel experience was as 
n choir hoy with Havcrlcy's Minstrels 
in Chicago, ten or twelve years ago. 
Polly Moran iniroduccd Paris and 
London to American black face com- 
edy when she took ibe first troupe 

of pickaninnies to these two cities In 

1902. 

Mabel Normand has completely re- 
covered from her recent serious ill- 
ness and has none to San Francisco, 
where she will spend several weeks 
takin K a complete rest visiting the 
Exposition, Miss Normand was in 
Sin Francisco with Roscoc Arbucklc 
and a company early in the year, and 
while there made a number of com- 
edies, but was unahlc to spentf much 
time at the Exposition. She is now 
taking advantage of the opportunity, 
And as soon as she has sufficiently 
rrstcd, will return to Los Angeles 



and resume work in Tmnglc-Key- 
ttcrnc comedies. 

Roscoc Arbucklc has just returned 
from a fast louring trip in his hip; 
Alco car which carried him through 
the southern and central parts of Cali- 
fornia. He covered over 750 miles in 
less than llircc days and by relaying 
at the steering wheel with his chauf- 
feur, the car was kept on the go bolli 
night and day. 

Maria Golden has returned to the 
fold and is playing will Fred Man-

SENNET RAZES MOUNTAIN 

In planning the reconstruction of 
the Keystone plant ai Edendale, much 
available land surrounding the orig-

with this additional property It was 
found that the plans required a great- 
«» area as a site for new buildings. 
The land lies at the foot of a high 
hill and after figuring every possible 
way to gain more apace, Mr, Sennctt 
sent for a Steam shovel, and enough 
of the hill was cut away to add a flat 
space of two acres to the ground 
ares. 

The first structure in the new group 
has been completed. It is a five-story 
building In which carpenter ihcjps,

PROMOTER ARRESTED 

Alleged Photo Play Stock Manipu- 
late U Held 

Charged with swindling a. number 
of men and women out of various 
sums of money, totaling $6000. D. W. 
Goodrich, a promoter, was placed in 
the city jail Wednesday. 

Mrs. Belle Rabb told the polk e 
that Goodrich represented himself as 
the president and manager of tbe 
Consolidated Motion Picture Com- 
pany and that he held tbe interna- 
tional right to k famous film, "The 
Shame of a Nation." She said she 
was to receive other aunts of. money 
in the form of a salary and at any 
time she demanded, the return of her 
investment she would be paid 100 per 
cent dividend*. 

Accortihg^to City PtesrtutorrWei*- 
ren Williams, Goodrich got from $50 
to $100 each from Harry Woodward, 
Miss Frances Hall, Arthur Jackson, 
VV, £. Freer, E. J, Musso and others, 

Goodrich is alleged to have prom- 
ised fabulous returns to investors and, 
according to- the specific complaint of 
Mrs. Belle Rabb, she mi to have re- 
ceived $1000 for each $100 Invested. 

Goodrich, in the city jail, denied he 
was a swindler end stated ' that V. 
given an opportunity be would 
straighten up the entire affair to the 
satisfaction ol all investors. 

It if a notable fact that there .are 
rtufoy alleged promoters and 



i quick artists claiming to have cvery- 
/ thing, alluring in motion picture aian- - 
/ ufacturing and productions behind 
them now at work in Los Angeles 
and other cities. Because of the 
great magnitude of the industry rep- 
resenting hundreds of millions of dol- 
lars, would be promoters with, noth- 
ing behind them are using the indus- 
try to float worthless wildcat schemes 
and propositions. Some of them arc 
getting by with the game. Others are 
being arrested. And it will ever be 
thus. The credulous public is usually 
craay to inveat'ifcerc large profits arc 
promised. They do not investigate 
tbe promoter or the officers or men 
behind the business. Naturally they 
lose and then shout for police aid. 

No man or woman should invest a 
dollar in any motion picture enter- 
prise or any other investment that is 
not vouched for by representative 
people interested b this great indus- 
try that is making new history for 
Los Angeles and Southern Califor- 
nia. 

There are a number of meritorious 
Organisations being promoted and: op- 
erated here, and in many* instances 
these companies are "making good" 
and will pay profits to the Investor.

PERSONAL NOTES 

OF THE PLAYERS 



In talking of her experiences in 
learning to twim, May Allison said 
that the chief trouble to mailer was 
her (ear of the ocean. Once she got 
over that, the rest was easy and aho 
only took a week to overcome the 
fear and manage to paddle along 
nicely. Now, if Mill Allium had not 
been in the picture game ihe would 
not have learned how to swim, and 
the movies arc responsible for many 
of the accomplishment! acquired by 
both acton and anremi. 

William D. Taylor, the latest Bos- 
worth, Inc., director, hai itarted his 
fint picture, "He Fell in Love with 
hi* Wife," by E. P. Roe. with Flor- 
ence Rockwell as the star. Taylor 
has an excellent supporting company 
in Forrest .Stanley, Howard Davits, 
Pa B e Peters and Lydia Ycamani Ti- 
tus, The feature will be in five reels. 

Vivian Rich of the American Com- 
pany ii just a girl— all girl. Her big- 
gest hobby is collecting dolls! 
Vivian has all her old lime .loll, and 
lots of ones added, all sorts and sizes 
and shapes, from a kewpie to a life 
size child doll. There are stranger 
fads than this one, and no one wants 
to see Miss Rich grow old, 

According to the many letters 
Anna Little is receiving, it is very 
clear that her many admirers arc 
glad to see her back in Western pic- 
tures again. She achieved her first 
popularity in Western roles with tlic 
old Bison Company, and llicrc is no 
actress who can so thoroughly and 
naturally saturate a part with iht 
true Western atmosphere. She can 
do anything pn a horse that a man 
can and has no fear whatever on 
horseback. 

Arthur Shirley, from Australia, has 
been burning the candle at both ends 
recently. He has been acting in pic- 
ture) by day and o'nigMs at the Little 
Theater of Los Angeles. In both 
cases he has done well and Cali- 
(ornians have had an opportunity of 
judging just why he was such a 
favorite in the antipodes. 

Charles Clary has many good 
things to his credit and one of them 
i» thai he took the chief part io the 
Selig play "Columbus" which was the 
first picture witnessed by the Pope at 
Rome. Clary has' appeared in a large 
number of pictures since that time. 

Sarah Truax of the Fine Arts 
Films has been joined by her Mother 
and her little girl •'DrusilU." This 



I bung: 



' of ( 



Hiss Truax is both a distinguished 
ictress and a lady, her place in the 
Photoplayers' Colony is assured. 
-ler First appearance in "Jordon Is a 
lard Road" demonstrated what a 
-aluable addition she is to the screen. 

i Mai 



Edna Maison, Universal'* brunei 
beauty, has invented a new face 
Cfcain. Several of her friends have 
tried it and say it is "great." 

Richard Stanton is engaged on the 
second of the "Graft" serial install- 
ments which is entitled "The Tene- 
ment House Evil" and he is getting 
every ounce out of this dramatic 
chapter. Hobarl Henley as the male 
lead. Glen White as the heavy and 
Jane Novak as the heroine are all do- 
ing strong work undef their virile 
director and as one of the actors re- 
marked "This is going to he SOME 
serial!" 

Mary Anderson of the Vitagraph 
has just finished a picture under the 
direction of Rollin S. Sturgeon which 
is bound to increase her popularity. 
"Flower of the Desert"' is a combina- 
tion of a good story by Marie Wing, 
good acting and superb direction, for 
Sturgeon has extracted all the charm 
from little Mary in this fascinating 
story. It i s the best thing the young 
actress has done and if gives promise 
of many good things to eome. 

On the evening of October 27th, 
Grace Cimfird entered her dressing 
room attired ai a bride and sinking 
into a chair fervently, ejaculated 
"Thank the Lord," for ihe and 
Francis Ford had juit been married 
(for stage purposes Only please); and 
the "Broken Coin" Universal serial 
waa at last completed. Of late "Brok- 
en Coin Las been synonymous with 
broken reit and Grace Cunard is go- 
ing to be busy doing nothing for a 
week or two while Frandi Ford will 
hie him to his home in Portland, 
Maine, for the itme length of time. 
They both dcierve the holiday too. 

Director Ed, J. Le Saint of the 
Big U, is busy on the second install- ( 
ment of the serial "The Journal of 
Lord John," featuring William Gar- 
wood, with Stella Raiclo heading the ' 
supporting Mat, This chapter" Is cat- U 
led The Gray SUterboosr and deals : 



Henry B. Walthall 
advertised men i 



he^t 

day. ft was not always thus for 
when he was still doing wonderful 
work with [he Biograph Company 
audiences were wont to say "Who is 
that aetoe with ihe expressive face?" 
This was due 10 the objection the 
company had of ever giving out the 
names of their artists. However. 
peniuesr' like Walthall could not well 
slay hidden. 

Keva Gerber acknowledges that 
she possesses a peculiar name but it 
is her very own. She changed it 
once when acting opposite Edwin 
August who did not think it sounded 
romantic enough, so for a time she 
was billed as Neva Delorei but she 
turned back to "Gerber™ when ihe 
left August to play with Carlyle 
Blackwcll. 

Helene Rosson has become *n ac- 
complished swimmer since her affilia- 
tion with the American Cpnipaiy at 
Santa Barbara and the instructor 
complimented her on her proficiency 
in such a short lime. Helene is just 
the age to acquire things quickly. 
She is an excellent musician and is 
studying voice culture and music all 
the time. In fact the Rosson house- 
hold is a hotbed of music and the 
neighbors enjoy the unpremeditated 
eon certs nightly. 

The next big V. I_ S. F Blue Rib- 
bon Western production for the Vita- 
graph "God's Country and the Wo- 
man" has been eonuneneed under the 
direction of Rr>llin. 5, Sturgeon, a 
past master at this class of story. 
William Duncan has the male lead 
and Nell Shipman, an excellent type 
(or the part, will play opposite Dun- 
can. George Holt will tike eare ol 
the heavy role as usual. The dog 
teams arc assembled at Big Bear Val- 
ley. There arc some wonderful 
teams among them. This feature 
bids fair to be a sensational photo- 
play. 



Hei 



lenry Utto, the big "U" producer, 
was at his old stamping ground, 
Santa Barbara, last week, directing 
the big spectacular play "Undine" 
wtih Ida Sehnall, the swimmer and 
high diver, in the title role. Douglas 
Gerrard and Edna Maison have big 
acting parti, and Otto is striving to 
make this one of the most artistic 
photoplays he has ever produced. 

One has but to visit her home to 
form an adequate opinion and judge 
Louise Glaum's taste. Her likings 
run to riotous colors and oriental 
furnishings. Reds, greens, blue* and 
yellows predominate, with East India 
and China largely in general schemes. 
It is the same in the garden where 
the flowers are in mailed bunches of 
color. Mill Glaum's taste in dress 
rum to the bitarre and orientallty is 
the keynote of her fancies. She car- 
ries this originality into her work, 
and' Inceville has become accustomed 
to the stars taates and quaint wayi. 

It ii curious that Charles Ray. 
leading juvenile at Inceville, should 
be in successful In parti which fea- 
ture wayward sons and the like. He 
had iuch a part In "The Coward," 
which won universal admiration, Now 
Charlie Is one of the moil straight- 
forward and manly aeVon In the busi- 
ness and there la nothing of the 
'waiter or coward about him, In the

with a io called charitable Institution 
which turns out to be otherwise. 
Laura Oakley plays the part of the 
head "Siller." Le Saint ha* had some 
remarkable fine ieti built for the 
serial which will be in fifteen install- 
ment!, 

Tom Chattenon is thoroughly en- 
joying the three reel picture "A Man. 
« Maid and a Liar," in which he is 
playing Opposite Geo Madison. Most 
of the action lakes place by the sea 
shore. The photoplay is a well con- 
structed drama. 

Myrtle Siedman was asked to of- 
ficiate as Queen of the Hupmobile 
and Maxwell exhibits at the Auto- 
mobile Show last week, and a very 
attractive Queen she proved. One 
little girl gave her a big bunch of 
flowers and said: "I think you arc 
lovely, but they ought to call you 
Princess instead of Queen— Quecni 
don't smile like you do!" 

Once upon a lime there was a 
■plcndid "Mission" set at Inceville, 
but Bessie Barriscale it the cause of 
its ruinl Miss Bessie supported by 
Willism Desmond is appearing in a 
feature photoplay which has its 
locale in the "Balkan States" and the 
"Mission" has been altered and turn- 
ed into a Palace wherein the little 
actress holds sway, She is, as usual, 
giving a notable performance and is 
adding yet another type of part to 
her extensive repertoire.

PRESIDENT OF CENSOR BOARD FORCED OUT 

Prominent Exhibitor Showa Where Favoritism Is Being Shown and Council 
> Acts Quickly 

For many months trouble baa been brewing in motion picture censorship 
circles in Loa Angeles. Exhibitors claimed they wera not getting a square 
deal from officer* and members of the local board.* Pictures have been rigor- 
ously censored and penntosJon refused showing unnecessarily. The result was 
■ specially called man meeting at tha Majestic theater last week, called by 
repreaerjiatlve exhibitors o; tbls city. 

Tthe censorship was strenuously attacked and personal charges were Intro- 
duced agamat the president of the Board of Censorship, A. P. Tug wall. He 
was charged ■with favoritism and securing favors from mamittacturers because 
of hls'pOBltlon on the board. E. T. Jorgeoeen, secretary of the board, was also 
under fire, charged with having accepted ravora M d receiving money for writ- 
ing advertisements for J. A Qulan, featuring certain productions. The city 
council took a hand and develop men la this week oame thick and ML Jorgen- 
aen tendered his reeignattoo to tie council and TugweU was aaked co quit. 
He decided to light, and In the absence of the mayor. Acting Mayor Betkouskl 
summarily removed htm. with the approval of the council, the fight agaJnal 
bkn being headed by Eateile Lindsay Lew.on. a friend or clean censorship, who 
really favored the_ abolition o.* the board eotlrely. 
"^ When Mayor Charles E. Sebastian, who was absent, relumed to the city. 

be strongly endorsed the action of Betkouskl and the council and notice of 
Tugwell's retnoial was tmmedkacely makled to hUn. 

J. A. Quinn, owner of the Superb* theater, Oled statements ,with lie council 
to the effect that Togwell had charged 12 per 'week for carrying Hlmi to and 
ftcm the censor board office* from each oxohan«e. Thla Tugwell denies and 
states he wai llghn the ease to a nnuaa. In the meavntime he ts flred. He is no 
longer president of the Loe Angeles Soard of Censorship. 

Tugwell la aresldeni o.' the Exhibitors League and has been quLte a flgure 
in local censorship atTaln. 

In the meantime the council haa Instructed the city attorney '.o draft an 
ordinance to provide that no persons financially Interested In tie motion-pic- 
ture business can serve as a member of the Board of Censors. 

Local exhibitors take the Etand that they have been knposed upon In the 
rigorous censorship and expense attending thla feature of showing pictures. 
They feel that the menufacnarers themselves know If a picture Is worthy of 
showing be "ore they make It. This Tneans .that the manufacturer! and exhibit- 
ors win get together and work,Au harmony for the steady advancement and 
educational InmrucUon of feature films, and It Is to be hoped that the new 
board will be fair and Impartl^ In their opinions and judgments.

FAY TINCHER INCEPTS 

A NOVEL CREATURE 

Fay Tincher, the charming Fine 
Arts comedienne, has become a Studio 
iashion plate. This clever actress is 
continually introducing something dif- 
ferent in female attire. Her most re- 
cent departure from the stagnant 
nclhod of dress, is a severely tailored 
mannish eoai, vest and skirt, with a 
hat made of the saute material — collar, 
tic and shoes to match. 

Miss Tincher is now in the midst of 
playing "Dulcinea," whom DeWolf 
Hopper as "Don Quixote" makes his 
queen, as was the custom in days of 
knight errantry, in the film version of 
Cervantes' "Don QuiKote," as pre- 
pared by Chester Wither, who is also 
playing the part of "Don Fernando" 
under the direction of Ed ward. Dill on,

The wisdom of the L'niversal Film 
Company officials in building stages at 
their Pacific coast plant, which may be 
at a minute's notice changed from out- 
door to indoor studios, was made evi- 
dent this week when the Erst rain of 
the season struck Universal City. 
Work was not stopped as at many of 
the other studios. Men were called to 
pull the ropes and make the neces- 
sary changes: banks of Copper-Hew- 
itts were dragged forth from their cor- 
ners, where they have been standing 
for the past several months and the 
stages were soon doing service as in- 
terior, artistically lighted stage*. Work 
was continued, and so far as can be 
determined at present, there wilt be no 
lime lost at the itudio this winter on 
account of rainy weather. 



BLANCHE SWEET IM A 

BIG NEW PHOTODRAMA 

Blanche Sweet appearing* exclusive- s 

ly in Lasky Feature Play productions, 
will be seen in "The Secret Sin," a 
five-part photodrama, written for Miss 
Sweet by Margaret Turnbull, She ap- 
pears as twin sisters and during long 
stages of the action on the screen. 
Miss Sweet is seen by the audience as 
two entirely different persons. 

"The Secret Sin" gets its title from 
the theme of the story which probably 
is ihc most severe arraign men t against 
Ihe drug habit ever presented in film. 
In one of her characters Miss Sweet 
is addicted to the drug habit, having 
contracted a desire through ignorance 
and temptation. How she evehtoally 
overcomes tbe desire, a struggle in 
which hfcr sister assets her, is the 
basis of the photodrama. 

The Lasky company baa surround '.d 
Miss Sweet with a cast consisting of 
Th onus Wcighan, who plays opposite 
the star; Sessne Hayakawa, the Japan- 
ese actor, Hal Clements, Alice Know- 
land and others.

bought the machine to add to his own

on a locomotive pilot. 

Thomas Santichl stopped hit big

riot in progress. Tom longed to de- 
scend and aid the side of law and

right, boys, let's make it again!" Then 
it was that Santseai realised that he 
had ridden right into a scene in "The 
Making of Crooks," the first Selig.

As the guest of D. W. Griffith. 
Thos. & li.ee and Mack Sennett, 
vice-presidents of the Triangle Film 
Corporation, Harry E. Aitken, presi- 
dent of the $5,000,000 organization, 
has been enjoying the sights nnd 
scenes of the several notable studios 
controlled by himself and associates. 
This is the first visit of this well 
known film magnate since the Tri- 
angle organization, and he expressed 
himself as highly pleased with the 

.splendid advancement and develop- 
ments of feature productions for the 
Triangle program, which is rapidly 
extending into many of (he principal 
cities of the country. 

Mr. Aitken was honored by several 
private and public receptions during 
the week and was a guest of honor 
at the Motion Picture Directors' As- 

, sociation ball at Hotel Alexandria 
Thanksgiving evening. 

It is stated that many notable in- 
novations will be made in picture 
productions as a result of Mr. Ait- 
ken's Visit, and he and his- associates 
predict the most wonderful year in 
the history of the film industry for 

,1916. 



buildings at the Culver City plant has 
progressed so rapidly that the new 
workshop will be in full operation be- 
fore the middle of December. Not 
even do the building activities cease 
with nightfall. A corps of men is 
constantly at work during the dark 
hours, under the glare of several hun- 
dred immense arc lights. The heavy 

iron frame-work of most of the build- 
ings has virtually been completed, so 
that now all that remains to be done 
is the erection of the walls. 



NEW FILM CENSOR 

BOARD APPOINTED 

Mayor Charles E. Sebastian has ap- 
pointed the following members of 
the local Board of Moving Picture 
Censors: Austin C. Shafer, Neal P. 
Olsen, Clarence Ferguson, Mrs. M.

INCE PLANS TO BUT 

■ORB CULVER CITY LAND 

Thomas H. Inee is negotiating for 
the acquisition of thirty-one acres, im- 
mediately . adjoining the twelve-acre 
tract *t Culver City, on which- he is 
building a new $256,000 studio, was the 

announcement made this week by the 

director-general of the New York Mo- 
tion Picture Corporation. The step 
has been necessitated by the fact .what - 
the twelve-acre site will be inadequate 
for the erection of the plant required 
for the production of forthcoming 
Triangle-Kay Bee features. - 

Mr. Ince plans to use the acres for 
the con structio nof more stages, dress- 
ing rooms, property quarters and of- 
fices, and leave sufficient space unoc- 
cupied to permit of the building of any 
great street settings or exteriori of

power of office and the law, a local 
police judge recently sentenced J. A. 
Quinti of the Superba theater to a 
fine of i00 days in jarl— and then sus- 
pended the sentence. 

Quinn, who is an extensive adver- 
tiser and believer in giving his pa- 
trons the best of feature productions, 
instructive, amusing and educational 
as well, was showing the special fea- 
ture, "Damaged Goods," at his Broad- 
way theater. Crowds flocked to 
Broadway to secure admission, the 
streets were thronged with people 
and Quinn could not prevent them 
from partially obstructing the side- 
Just like the advertising of any big 
store sale on Broadway, the people 
flocked to the theater for admission 
in response to the attractive and in- 
teresting ads. It was simply a bar-

ture as an offering.

^ is said, of creating a semation by rea- 
son of its general .superlative quali- 
1 ties. It was made on the sands of the 
Mojnvi: deaert, where nature's endow- 
ments arc akin to those of the Orient, 
and it has been embodied with the 
very beat of everything in the photo- 
play art. It is a stirring story of a 
native girl's sacrifice for the man ahe 
loves, and the strength of its theme 
i s equaled only by t lie pic turesquc- 
ness of its numerous settings of splen- 



dor.

BALBOA NEWS NOTES 
"The Red Circle" will be the next 
big Balboa-Pathe release. It it a 
novel serial photoplay of the detec- 
tive story order of fourteen two-reel

on "Ncai of the Navy," which Balboa 
also made for Pathe. December 18th 
is the release date. 

Half a doien prominent officials of 
the Salt Lake Railroad, headed by F. 
A. Wsnn, general traffic manager, 
were recent visitors at the Balboa 
studios. Because of the .steady 
growth in (lie volume of business 
done by the Horkhcimcr Brothers at 
their Long Beach plant, the trans- 
portation companies are vicing ac- 
tively for thqir favors. 

Balboa had another wedding at the 
studio last week. The contracting 
parties were Richard Johnson and 
Lulu Bower. They were the first cou- 
ple to be open and above board in the 
dispatching of their matrimonial af- 
fairs, as the previous instance* were 
all elopements. The groom is a well* 
known Character actor in Balboa tea 
tures, while his bride has also taken 
small parts. The Johnsons are the 
seventh couple in four months. The

Saunders. E. J. Brady is also in the 
cast. \ 

The entire administration of Long 
Beach, headed by Mayor Lisenby, 
honored the Balboa studio with an 
official visit recently. Thli plcture- 
maldng plant has by far tbe largest

unconscious form was recovered from 
the Santa Ynei river by his director, 
Junes Douglas, who a few minutes 
previously had pleaded that Reed per- 
i;mit a "double"— a trained man the 
company insists be used in such h*n> 
ards — to make the leap. 

The death of Reed has thrown a 
pall of gloom over Southern Califor- 
nia filmdom. Although a newcomer 
in the ranks oE picture actors, he had, 
in a few short months, won himself 
in envied place among his associates 
as well as with the public.

DON MEANEY RETURNS 
After a business trip to New York, 
where he was manager of productions 
for Francis Bushman and the Qual- 
ity Pictures. Don Meaney, a well 
known publicity man and motion pic- 
ture specialist, has returned to Los 

Angeles. Mr. Meaney" s return was 

caused principally because of his 
wife's health, she preferring the cli- 
mate of California on account of the 
advice of physicians. 

Mr. Meaney is now considering: of- 
fers from former associates and ex- 
pects to again be in harness in an 
executive position in a few days. 



HALE JOINS LASKY 
Alan Hale, who has been with the 
Biogmph Company for some time, is 
leaving that company to accept a spe- 
cial engagement* with the Lasky con- 
cern. Mr. Hale is an athletic looking 
blonde and he is just as strong as he 
looks. The Biograph has the repu- 
tation of turning out all-round actors, 
and Alan Hale is no exception; there 
are but very few parti he is not at 
home in, and aa he is genuinely fond 
of his art, his future is a very bright 



CHA8, RAY BUCCEBSFUL 

He Otti Married 

When Charles Ray first joined the 
Thomas H. Inee forces he had to 
work his way, but he did this very 
quickly Indeed. He has a striking 
personality. In "The Coward" he is 
seen at his very best, it is a striking 
piece of work which has won the 
plaudits of the public and the praise 
of the hardest critic*, It is not by 
any means the first piece of goad 
work Ray has done, but it i* prob- 
ably the finest and most polished rote 
he has undertaken. In "The Coward" 
he worked opposite the star, Frank 
Keenan, and a better combination 
could not well hive been found. 

Mr. Ray quietly slipped away and 
got married to a very charming little 
lady last week. They have known 
each other for a long time and though 
the affair waa heralded as an elope- 
ment, wc have reason to believe that 
the families were in on the affair and 
that Charlie stole a march on his 
many friends. 

Good luck to .herd both, we do not 
know which to congratulate the most.

HELEN'S HEW EXPLOITS 

Helen Holmes seems to have made 
up her mind to put all her previous 
exploits of daring in the shade, for 
she is performing some unheard of 
new "stums" in the serial story. "The 
Girl and the Game," which is being 
gotten ready for the Mutual pro- 
gramme. J. P. McGowan, the pro- 
ducer, is happy in the fact that he 
is entirely unhampered, and he is put- 
ting on the kind of pictures he has 
long wanted to. Some of the new 
adventures arc quite remarkable. 



STAR TRAINS ANIMALS 

Louise Glaum is playing a dance 
hall girl with W. S. Hart and is con- 
tributing another of her fine sketches 
of a broad Western type. She has 
purchased two horned toads and two 
chameleons, which she is trying to 
teach some tricks. The star argues it 
is quite possible to do this, and states 
that she will prove it one of these 
days when she gets an opportunity to 
show the result of her training in a 
picture. The chameleons are quite 
tame already.

possibilities of the photoplay. He 
hopes that the theater-going public

He has been courteously received by 
all heads of departments, directors, 
stars and players, and there is no evi-

watching and, waiting. In the mean-

made the Universal one of the big 

organizations of the motion picture 

industry of the world.

Santa Barbara Studios Placed m Fine 
Shape For Winter Productions 

Appreciating the many advantages 
of winter season in Southern Cali- 
fornia for motion picture productions, 
President S. S. Hutchinson 'of the 
American Film Company, Santa Bar- 
bara, lias made many changes in the 
studios of the big organization in tbe 
Channel City. 

The largest building in the eity is 
the glass studio and property room 
now being built at State and Mission 
streets. The structure will have the 
greatest open floor space of any 
roofed in house in Santa Barbara. The 
floor of the glass studio will be 130x 
80 feet, with everything up to 22 feet 
above the floor. 

The studio roof slopes all oneway 
like a "lean-to." Meeting its roof wilt 
be another exactly as large sloping 
the other way, forming a complete 
roof with the studio, and covering 
three stories of dressing rooms. 
There will be two stories of shops 
and scene painting space where the 
people will be "made up." In front 
of these two Structures will be a 46- 
foot addition, including a handsome 
tower at the corner. 

Besides tbe infinite amount of in" 
tcrior and exterior finishing, furnish- 
ing and fitting that is yet to done, 
there is an immense amount of 
ground work to be done on the four 
sides of the big structure. A wall- 
similar to the artistic Mission type 
along the front of the present plant is 
to be continued out to State street, 
immediately this new building is fin- 
ished. The grounds inside this wall 
will be terraced as on the other 
grounds about the buildings. ' 

A feature of the new building will 
be its battery of lights for night work. 
To handle this new lighting, a bouse 
is being built at the rear of the studio 
to aeco mmodat e th re* big trans- 
formers to take and deliver the city 
electricity as it is needed for studio 
work.

MANY CHANGES UNDER CONSIDERATION 

tt seems at last that regardless of so-called artistic temperament, high- 
brow feelings, petty differences and snobbishness of many profesed leaders, 
even noticeable among certain classes of directors, legitimate and newly made 
movie stars, players and some officials and heads of departments of the larger 
and smaller organizations, the axe of efficiency is about to fall in some of the 
more notable studios. 

In truth, the decapitation has already commenced, and in almost every 
representative studio changes arc bfeing made; This is especially noticeable at 
Universal City, Griffith Fine Arts^ilms, the: Keystone, and Blograph studios, 
where it is announced from now/on "efficiency," a word that does not appeal 
to but very few players, stars and directors, is going to be a watchword and 
' will be enforced in every department. Cost of productions are going to be cut 
down to what they should be, and one of the most notable salary payers in the 
profession says "the artistic temperament will have to bow to the necessity of 
their work, or some high-fliers and many lower ones now commanding fancy 
salaries will be looking for other engagements. 

"Efficiency is going to be established the same, as it is in the legitimate 
profession. Players of all classes will be compelled to appear on time, as they 
do at regular theater performances for all rehearsals, and each department will 
be systematized on a business basis. It is this lack of business system that is 
forcing many companies out of trade and adding enormouly to the expense of 
the producing organizations that are creating pictures." 

"The time has come when the motion picture industry must be put on the 
efficiency and business basis. Too much time is lost Fancy salaries are being 
paid and the men who produce the money are demanding more economical and 
satisfactory results. The great waste is too apparent."

of the Universal'* Pacific Coast scen-

the position of Scenario Editor at

Stafford was for more than two 
years on the regular staff of that com- 
pany and was later made director of 
dramatic productions with the same 
concern, Later he left to accept a 
similar offer with the Lubin studio 
at San Diego. The call of scenario 
writing, however, was strong and he

the Universal City studios, who has 
been ill at his home for the past sev- 
eral diys, has returned to his desk 
at the picture city where he is mak- 
ing up for lost time by night and day

severe attack of bronchitis and for 
a time it was feared that pneumonia 
would probably develop.

In view of the suecess of his three

Rupert Julian, director and a leading 
man at the Universal City studios, 
has commenced the production of an- 
other story of the same type entitled,

OVEY EXPRESSIONS 

LEAD TO SUCCESS 
George Ovey, the featured comed- 
ian in David Horsley's Cub Comedies, 
released on the Mutual program, is 
in. line for another title in addition 
to that of "the funniest man in Amer- 
ica." He may well be termed "the 
man of many facial expressions." 

Ovey Is one of the few legitimate 
stage players jumping into pictures 
who made good right from the start. 
Only a few months ago he was a com- 
paratively obscure player. When he 
started with Mr. Horslcy he had 
never faced a motion picture camera 
before. His first picture was an indi- 
vidual triumph and since then he has 
recorded one hit alter another until 
_ today. bsAs. one of. th e moat talked fi f 
comedians in pictures. 



BALBOA NEWS NOTES . 
Balboa is today one of the largest 
actually independent motion picture 
-producing studio* in the world. lis 
capacity is 20,000 feet of negative film 
a week and tlic average number of 
employes is 250. Ai it stands, the 
•tudio which requires a dozen build- 
ings on four corners of two inter- 
secting streets in Long Beach, repre- 
sents an investment of $300,000. The 
Horkheimer Brothers ire the sole 

" 'Vam ping' again," said Myrtle 
Reeves of Balboa When recently aaked 
what she was doing in a new picture 
production. To the unitisted in stu- 
dio slug, this is probably Incompre- 
hensible. What Miss Reeves meant 
was she was playing a vampire wom- 
an. This type of role has become so 
common nowadays that one who 
makes a specialty of playing it is 
/known as a "vamp." 

Gordon Sack vi He who plays the 
chief of Police in "The Red Circle." 
the detective serial produced by Bal- 
boa and soon to be released by Pathe, 
was at one time considered the hand- 
somest man on Broadway. He had 
just returned from Paris and was 
Pritii Scheffs leading man. When 
his voice gave out, Saekville naturally 
took to the screen and he has been 
seen in prominent parts in many Bal- 
boa features, during the last two 
years. 

"The Adventures of a Madcap," the 
four-reel hand-colored Balboa-Pathc 
feature film with Jackie Saunders In 
the leading role recently released, lias 
been acclaimed one of the prettiest 
pictures thrown on the screen, Much 
credit for the success of it is due to 
Sherwood Macdonald, the director in 
charge. The Story though simple was 
interesting; and "the Maude Adanis 

of the screen," which Miss Saunders 
has been christened, was the per- 
sonification of joy. 

Because of their growing business 
in the motion picture field the Horfc- 
heimcr Brothers have opened a New 
York office at 1600 Broadway. This 
is accessible to all the trade. It will 
be kepi open all the time, to facilitate 
the handling of Balboa films, though 
Of course the studio and general head- 
quarters remain in Long Beach, Cal., 
since the "West coast is regarded as 
the established center of the screen 
production. »

CANNOT DAMPEN ARDOR 
Nothing can dampen the ardor of 
Sadie Lindblom, the leading actress 
and Owner of the Liberty Film Con- 
cern at San Mateo, There have been 
many obstacles placed in her way, 
but she has surmounted them all and 
her plant is a model one, while she 
has turned out some very interesting 
photoplays and is outlining many 
others.

New York as an immigrant and wins 
her way into fame and fortune. Miss 
Stiratt chose the latter role and she

Miss Farrar's friends who accom- 
panied the prima donna to Boston 
recently to attend the premiere exhi- 
bition of "Carmen" in Symphony 

Hall, thai cily. Previously it had 
been reported that Miss Farrar and 
Lou-Tellegen were reported to be 
engaged. Miss Farrar has denied the 
report emphatically. When a Boston

"Vcs, we arc engaged, BUT to ap-

sinos of the famouB resort. Probably 
the biggest interior setting ever erect- 
ed In a studio is used in one of the 
casino scenes. Four great halls arc 
revealed in panorama and nearly 1,000 
persons arc seen playing at the vari- 
ous roulette and card tables. 

Theodore Roberts, star of this 
Lasky production has been prominent 
before the photoplay going public for 
many months. Others who appear in 
Icadintr roles arc Carlyle Blackwell 
and Dorothy Davenport, a niece of 
the late Fanny Davenport.

INCE SECURES NEW 

PHOTOGRAPHIC EFFECTS 

Photographic perfection, which 
many critics have accorded Thomas 
H. Ince productions in the past, is. 
said iq be surpassed in the produc- 
tion of "Between Men," the Incc- 
Trianglc feature in which William S. 
Hart, the popular actor of western 
parts, Is starred. The usual artistic 
effects secured through a rare appre- 
ciation of lights and shadows, com- 
bined with an unusual attention Id de- 
tail, arc claimed for the production. 

But this is not all. The privileged 
few who saw the picture in the Inec- 
villc projection room declare that 
Producer Ince has added still another 
innovation to the art of photography. 
This is in a number of scenes which 
show Hart sitting on the observation 
platform of a moving train. The 
camera caught' the sway of the train- 
and In the reflection on the window 
behind the her of the play, the coun- 
try can be seen rolling away as the 
train speed* along. 

To secure the effect described, It 
was necessary for Producer Ince to 
hire a special train three timet. The 
first two attempte to catch the e1u< 
rive reflection were failurei. The 
third time proved s charm and award- 
ed the perseverance of the producer. 




VITAGRAPH MOVES STUDIO 

The Studios of the Vitagraph Com- 
pany have been removed to the 11- 
acrc site at Hollywood. Only two 
buildings remain at Santa Monica, 
the dark room and negative depart- 
ment buildings. These will remain 
there for a couple of months., during 
which time a modern up-to-date la- 
boratory and film room will be con- 
structed at Hollywood. The present 
office quarters arc only temporary, 
but the plans for the new one look 
\cry promising. 

In addition to Rollin Sturgeon's 
production of feature Blue Ribbon 
pictures, the studio will be devoted 
to the making of three reel Broadway 
Star Features, with only occasional 
comedies of one and two reels. In 
spite of the fact that three reel sub- 
jects that are really deserving of that 
length, are -very scarce, tbe Vitagraph 
Company by paying a price consider- 
ably higher per reel than the average 
company, expect to keep well' sup- 
plied. Such well-known writers as L. 
Case Russell, Mrs. Owen Bronion, 
Daisy Etpiie Smith, and Jacques 
Kopf stein, are regular contributors. 



SIGNAL FILMS WILL

Dick Stanton is well inio the fifth 
installment of the big "Graft" aerial 
at the Universal studios. This two- 
reeler is entitled. "The Street Car 
Traction." and in it there is a big car 
riot in which Stanton had three hun- 
dred men rioting and a street car ac- 
tually tamed over and wrecked. It 
is a very powerful scene, and he work- 
ed bis mob up so well that there was 
some actual injuries of a light nature, 
sufficient to require a bandage or two 
and plenty of. sticking platter. Said 
one of the actors in "Graft," "Stanton 
drives us hard, but he is such a fine 
fellow we do not mind it a bit." Stan- 
ton certainly gets the results he is af- 
ter.

HOW ABOUT IT, OTTO? 

Henry Otto was given a week off af- 
ter finishing "Undine" (or the big U- 
Henry disappeared and refuses to say 
where be has been and w-aht he did 
while be was away. Again the rumor 
has it that he went and got married, 
but he hat fooled 'em the tame way to 
many times. It will be necessary (or 
Otto to produce the girl and the ring 
before the rumor is even credited. 
He looks well, anyhow! 



ONLY THE S. F. PRESIDENT 

"Smiling" Billy Ma ion made a one- 
hundred and forty foot drop from an 
aeroplane onto a chimney the other 
day in a Keystone picture and com- 
ing safely to earth was patted on the 
shoulder by a stranger and told he 
was s "Good boy, good boy!" 

"Thank*," returned Billy, continu- 
ing to broth the dust from his air- 
man's uniform. "But who is he?" he 
asked as the pleated stranger marched 
away. "Hira?" replied Charles Arling. 
who was standing; nearby. "Oh, he's 
. only the president of the Southern 

trine looking over the plant"

and general manager of the Palo Alto 
Film Corporation, Is one of Henry 
Ford's guests on the "Peace Ship" 
which fighting Europe considers a 
joke, but which the Jitney Man be- 
lieves will be a success. Aside from 
Governor Hiram W. Johnson, Mr. 
Goethe was one of the few Califor- 
nium receiving an invitation on this 
probably eventful voyage. 

C. M. Goethe, who has been asso- 
ciated in the national playground and 
recreation movement with Mrs.

the city of Sacramento on the jitney 
cruisade snd It la sincerely hoped that

PRODUCER'S MOTHER PASSES 

Mother of D. W, Griffith' Die* «t 

Louisville, Ky. —Great Director 
Goes East 

D. W. Griffith, master motion pic- 
ture producer, has been called unex- 
pectedly to Louisville, Ky_ by the 
death of his aged mother, Mrs. Mary 
Perkins Griffith. Plans for a happy 
family reunion in Louisville had been 
set for December 12, the eighty-sev- 
enth anniversary of the Sim mag- 
nate's mother. A brother, Albert 
Griffith, had made a trip especially 
from London to attend this family 
gathering and was present at his 
mother's death. A daughter. Miss 
Ruth Griffith, was also present, - 

A sudden attack of pneumonia 
changed the plans of the producer's 
family and instead of going to the re- 
iiviiun of his mother, brother andsis- 
ter, he hastened across the continent 
to his mother's bier to pay her a 
final tribute. 

The celebration was also to have 
been in honor of Griffith's rise to 
probably the higheat pinnacle in his 
career as a producer and director in 
the great motion picture industry, 
The formation of the Triangle Film 
Corporation and the Fine Arts Com- 
pany, the production of films on a 
far greater scale than ever before bad 
been attempted stamp Griffith as one 
of the premier producer* in the film 
world. 

Behind the success of many lead- 
ers of men there wilt be found the 
strong personality of a mother. Un- 
doubtedly the motherly qualities that 
have Inspired men for ao many cen- 
turies bad a great deal to do with 
the success of this singular man and 
the staff of the Photoplayers Weekly 
extends to Mr. Griffith, in this boor 
of his bereavement, its deepest sym- 
pathy.

HE GAVE AN INCH! 

THEY TOOK A MILE 

William F. Russell, on leaving; for 
San Francisco for the final week of 
the fair, turned his ranch house over 
to the decorators to "do things' 'to it. 
They did: so also did a party of guests 
who arrived unexpectedly from Los 
Angeles. "We're here." they wired 
Mr. Russell in Sa n Francisco. "Wel- 
come: make yourselves at home," 
WW Mr. Russell's reply. 

The company did. It began by dis- 
charging the colored cook and install- 
ing a Chinese one. Mr. Russell's au- 
to averaged one hundred miles daily; 
his horses were plentifully exercised 
and the ranch house grace provided 
occasion for nightly marshtnallow 
toast parties. On his return Mr. Rus- 
sell was greeted with an Oriental 
salaam and a note which read, 
"Thanks for the hospitality, Bill; 
you're lucky if you had half as good 
a time as wc did." 

And from the general aspect of 
tilings Mr. Russell guessed the com- 
pany was right.

timei of war, although it ii not an 
arraignment of any particular nation 
or army. It nor* for it! locale to the 
mythical country , of Balkania and 
there ii enacted without offense to the 
conscience of any existing govern- 
Never since he began his career as 
an actor has Kcenan contributed a 
greater characterization to the world 
of amusement. He plays the part of 
the Emir of Balkania, a fierce, fear- 
less despot who holds sway over a 
band of wild mountain horsemen, and 
around whose barbarous attack upon 
the girls and women of a neighbor- 
ins town the story revolves. 

The principal femininec role is play- 
ed by EniU Markey, while the third 
important part is portrayed by Chas. 
¥. French. 

William S. Hart makes a startling 
departure in the manner of dress in 
"Between Men," the I nee-Triangle 
feature, in which he is starred. The 
broad -brimmed Stetson, the familiar 
chaps, the plaid skirt, and the ever- 
ready six-shooters of the "Two-Gun 
Man" are missing through the greater 
part or the productions. It may be 
startting to the followers of Mr. Hart 
to learn this, but he appears in a dress 
suit, silk top hat and all the ap point - 
mens of evening dress. 

Hart, in spite of his change of 
wardrobe, is still of the west. His 
quiet ant) gentle personality is as 



striking amid the glar 



'■•in i 



or of New 

i In the"bad 
towns" of the plains, 

Although he owns a full wardrobe 
which meets all social demands, he is 
happicit rvhen in hii wcitern "togs." 
During the production of "Between 
Men" he appeared in evening dresi to 
such advantage ai to make some of 
the Inee-Flaycr* who specialize in this 
attire, green with envy. 

Mary Boland, who after many suc- 
cessful season on the speaking stage, 
makes Iter debut in hlindoin with 
Willard Mack and Frank Mills in 
"The Edge of the Abyss," the lnce- 
Triangle feature, claims to be an au-' 
lliority on the proper style in men's 
clothes. Her education in this re- 
spect was obtained through six years' 
experience as leading woman for John 
Drew, who many critics have declared 
to be the best dressed man on the 
American stage. 

Luck plays a big part in the lives 
of successful men and occasianatly it is 
found in motion pictures, as was 
proven recently in the production of 
"Matrimony," the five-part Ince-Tri- 
auglc feature in which Julia Dean ia 
starred. 

The script called for a yachting 
scene in which Miss Dean was to be 
entertained on a racing boat by a 
group of sportsmen. Arrangements 
were made to take the scenes on the 
speedy yacht of the New York Mo- 
tion Picture Corporation. 

Headed by Thomas H. lnce, the 
players left for Catalina Island and 
prepaations were immediately begun 
to film the scenes. The camera had 
just begun to click when it was dis- 
covered that in the background the 
entire fleet of the South Coast Yacht 
Club's speediest boats was engaged 
in the annual regatta. 

Quick as a flash Director lnce or- 
dered action. Several hundred feet 
of film were exposed and the camera 
caught the entire fleet of racers as 
they passed. The scene is on of the 
most beautiful in the entire produc- 



TO GRETCHEN HARTMAN 
No, Gretchen Hartman was NOT 
one of the many who were given their 
notices by the Biograph Company in 
L.qs Angeles. Miss Hartman is still 
acting for J. Farrell Macdonald, and 
she is one of the "oldest inhabitants" 
in point of service, tew. It Would 
sound funny to mention her name in 
connection with any other studio. 
During her tenure of service with the 
Biograph this surprisingly clever 
young woman has acted an extraordi- 
narily varied line of parts and she is 
just as attractive as a nice old lady 
as she is delightful as a girl ofseven-

Arthur Shirley, *iio Is playing the 
leading part in Dixon's "Fall of a 
Nation," says that he never worked 
SO hard or so pleasantly in his life. 
li'c has to be up before 7 o'clock each 
morning in' order to be on time for 
the day's work, and he gets back in 
time for late dinner — sometimes! Di- 
rector Sargent is taking all the ex- 
teriors first as the stage and studio 
are still in the building. Shirley led 
the King Eight automobile parade at 
San Diego* last week and received 
quite an ovation en route. 



Editor's Note: Eyre Powell is di- 
recting head of an organization 
whose publicity material is Osed in 
eyerv portion of the country. He 
was special publicity agent for the 
Panama-Pacific International Expo- 
sition in the production of headline 
illustrated matter and is considered 
one of the country's experts in that 
line. He has written the following 
article, not in the spirit of criticism 
but of suggestion, not as a "knock" 
in any sense of the word but to 
spread (he seed of a gradual techni- 
cal betterment in the newspaper pub- 
licity material so vital to the film in- 
dustry's growth. We pas* it on to 
our. readers In the same spirit. 

"Powell," said one of the country'! 
great dramatic critics a few weeks 
ago, "Why don't we get better; news* 
paper material from the film com- 
panies? Just look at that It le sel- 



tore of one of the great film stars, 
Mttt In from one of the largest pro- 
ducing corporations in the world; 
"I'd like to feature that woman," he 
went on, "But what can I do with 
that? I'm going to run it because 
nothing better happen* to bo In 



ally acquainted, it was a Rood speci- 
men of dramatic copy. The picture, 
too, waa excellent. In In way.,, Beau- 
tifully posed, with bully shadow ef- 
fects, it was really 'a piece of photog- 
raphic art. As a piece of newspaper 
copy, however, It w*« rotten, The 
peculiar requirements of newspaper 
"copy" were totally lacking. 

The picture wai run the next morn- 
ing, the shadow effects io beautiful 
In art and *o disastroui In neWipaper 
reproduction and far from a crfrilt to 
a really beautiful actress. ThiJ story, 
aa wsj the picture, hid been cut down 
to the limit. 

It waa purely a matter 'of] 
ancc. There teemed t© be not; 



that film corporation's staff that knew 
the details of press necessities, that 
could tell that the picture, so beau- 
tiful to the eye, was totally unfit for 
printing in the coarse half-tones of a 
newspaper. 

The press agents of the various 
film companies are not at fault Some 
of the belt press writers in the pro- 
fession are on the publicity staffs 
of Loi Angeles concerns. The day 
has passed, however, when reading 
matter, no matter how good, can be 
classed as publicity, in Its entirety. 

Publicity, in its whole, should ex- 
tend from the writing end, through 
art, newspaper photography and all 
of the other detail* of the production 
of modern prcia material. 1 found, in 
a few wceka of quiet observance be- 
fore answering my friend, the critic, 
that the average film company en- 
gages the be it of writers, but leave 
them totally unsupported in the de- 
tails that either bring their effort! to 
feature apace, or lacking which, al- 
low them to be relegated to the hack- 
ground, or discarded altogether. 

To an editor' of a thriving small 
town dally I put the critic's question. 
"Mere Ii the answer," replied he, and 
held Up h copy of his paper. "Com- 
pare -those two illustrations." Side 
by aide on his sheet ware two pic- 
ture!, one furnihed by a well equipped 
press btireau, the other a cut handed 
lit by the press agent of a local pic- 
ture, telling (he story at a glance, and 
with snappy modern art work that 
made it a credit to the paper. The

raphy, bad engraving, little knowl- 
edge of what constitute.! crack press 
matter to attract the attention of s 
reader, and In an art layout of a stylo

in Loi Angele* and San Franclieo, 
Work will begin on each home En the

LEONHARDT SOME FISHER- 
MAN 

One of Year's Best Stories s 
Whale 

Recently when Harry Lconhardt 
drove to San Diego with Clarke Ir- 
vine and R. E. Zarron, traveling ex- 
change man fgr Fo*, they reported 
sighting a great whale on the beach. 
In Los Angeles the Story met with 
near-derision until Irvine, who "gra- 
flcxed" the wh?|e, produced the pic- 
tures this week, and the laugh is now 
on those who disbelieved the film. 
men's story. 

Harry Leanhardt't version it as fol- 
lows: "We had been touring leisure- 
ly along the coast road, when about a 
mile from Del Mar we were attracted 
to the waters of a cove, about a mile 
ahead of us. I took a squint through 
the binoculars and saw what looked 
like the round back of a submarine, 
with the conning tower and periscope 
largely showing. The dreaded ship 
destroyer, as I thought it to be, wai 
cruising along leisurely. We all 
watched it for some time; then as we 
approached a point on shore opposite 
the man u/ive ring torpedoer, we saw 
that It was gradually coming ashore. 
Soon the outlines of the. big whale 
were Seen and We found that In our 
exdtement and interest lit the present 
war, we had forgotten that there was 
such a thing at a whale's back which 
resembles a submarine," 

"In half an hour the big brute was 
high and dry. U bad become strand- 
ed in the shallow waters and was 
drowned with air as the receding tides 
left it to the mercy of the osone. On 
the way back we photographed the 
monster when It wai clear out of the 
water. 1 * 

We -would not like to call this ■ 
fish story, for It certainly la not a fiih 
story— it li a whale of a itory. 



FORD ON JOB AGAIN 

Francis Ford looks well alter his 
holiday and is putting on a two rcclcr 
called "One Night," in which a sister 
of Edna Maiaon, known as Elisc 
Maisonavc, appears. Grace Cunard is 
producing a two rcclcr with Jack Holt 
and herself in the leads; it is entitled 
"Born of the People," and was writ- 
ten by Ford. 

After these two plays Ford and Cun- 
ard will start on a new big feature to- 
gether. 




'THE GIRL AND THE GAME'* 

J. P. McGowan, producer of "The 
Girl and the Game," for the Signal 
Company, has taken his star, Helen 
Holmes, and a full company to Cata- 
lina and on to Santa Barbara for some 
combined sea and railroad scenes. He 
is working on an entirety new sensa- 
tion) something which has never been 
done before. The first three install- 
ments of this new serial are complet- 
ed and in a strictly private view It 
was clear that McGowan has obtained 
some wonderfully fine matter and the 
Intrepid Mil* Holmes has never done 
anything better In her life. This It 
going to be SOME serial. 



TWAS NOT ALWAYS THUS! 



Hal Gooley, the good-looking young 
man who plays juvenile leads at the 
big U studios and who is getting to be 
a big favoriatc, says that he holds the 
world's record for being stranded- with 
bum companies on the road. There 
was one titne when he joined four 
companies, one after the other; and 
got Stranded in a different town ev- 
ery time without a red cent He HAD 
to join the various concerns in order 
to gradually get nearer home and this 
is all the good he got out of a bad 
season excepts lots of traveling and 
worlds of experience. Hal says it was 
fully worth it and he is just young 
enough to make light of such triviali- 
ties. '."•

Los Ai»geI«S,- "WK>t-J. , ilsre-^^p s v.irdot8iry Slofct," is its capital. 
In this dty the Motion Picture luduati/ ranks third among our man- 
ufacturing industries in point of money placed in circulation. In 
point of numbers employed, it is undoubtedly our leading industry. 
Next to our wonderful climate, it is our greatest advertisement today. 

When we speak of the Motion Picture Industry, we talk in fig- 
ures of millions. We know that the great plants located here are 
worth millions of dollars each year to this section, but hardly any two 
persons can agree as to the grand total involved. The last United 
States Government industrial figures available were gathered in 190ft 
At that time the film industry here was in the chrysalis stage. For- 
tunately, Uncle Sam has made. a complete census of the industry dur- 
ing the present year and we u expect almost any day now to re- 
ceive authoritative figures which" will show just what the honor of 
being filmland's capital means to the commercial life of out city. Of 
' -course, we have no method of ascertaining the value of the vast adver- 
tising received each year by this community through the showing of 
Los Angeles-made films throughout Christendom. (Jur Government, 
however, will undoubtedly be able to arrive at the total amount ex- 
pended here annually by the great producing concerns for rentals 
construction, salaries and supplies. Conservative estimates coverinj 
the foregoing range from $7,000,000 to 520,000,000. 

• As to the number of people given employment, the estimati 
dom falls below 15,000. Whatever the figures may be, they 
big. 

Through the motion picture industry thousands of new, 
connected with it have been brought to this section — men ai 
who are fast becoming identified with the welfare of 
Many of these new-eomeis have built homes here, invest 
business property and have become associated wit! 
and educational organizations, and. in fact, have become 
in every sense. 

The great celebrities of the speaking stage and the fill 
crossing and re-crossing the continent with the picture s 
Angeles as their mecca. In all the newspapers and peril 
country their doings are portraved in such a way that f 
Los Angeles is continually in the public eye. Our moj 
studios are becoming famed everywhere, and to the tourist 
greater attraction than anything else we have to offer, 
own people the motion picture plants are an education an< 
overshadowing in nodularity our parks and other recreation! pi. 
Immense zoological collections have been concentrated here lam 
the present time our city can undoubtedly boast of more wildpnij 
in captivity than can any other point in civilization. The 
made by the combined menageries of America would be tame, in 
parison with what we have to offer in Los Angeles. 

The location of the 64m industry in this, region has given tremend- 
ous stimulus to manv writers of short stories and scenarios. Hun- 
dreds of our people have taken up literary pursuits, and the local 
writers of scenarios have established a high place for themselves 
the dramatic crrctes of our nation. f 

Los Angeles now leads the world in the volume of negativrffilm 
produced, at least 75 oer cent of the American product being maae in 
this vicinity. The growing importance of our laboratories is judica- 
tive that it is onlv a auesticm of time when -the btrtk of the J~ 
film will be manufactured here. Some day, perhaps, the naming of 
raw film will be one of oar important industries — who knowr? 

Our city and our entire section take great pride in the fiUn indus- 
try and our peosle stand ready to co-operate with th^jifodvcers in 
everything that will contribute to its welfare and wtf 

As one of her t'reatesr assets and adverttsemufbi 
most, unique institutions, Los Angeles, the langnr'cltvwtt of 
Louis, is glad, indeed, to have the sprendid'iva)r»lul4rfu»s x part 
of her favored domain. ^ ■ 

The Los Aneeies Chamber of Commerce has always Deen ready 
to extend a helping band to the picture concerns that are mi ' *

tions. , 





To the t&usands oT ^^nst*fei^^ .bout th,

chosen profession, which has as its field the great out-doors of South- 
ern Califurnia. valleys of perpetual flowers, and a coast line where 
conditions are ideal for filming- scenes of all descriptions. 

But yesterday the photoplayers played a very insignificant part 

in the life of Los Angeles and Southern California. However, with 

the coming of the principal film-producing concerns of the east, this

ahead of it, and if the present stride continues it

irpora-ted, and every city in the country pours its little per- 
centage into the fund that comes 'to Los Angeles for the improvement 
of studios, development and expansion of the industry. 

From the financial standpoint Los Angeles probably benefits more 

It ofjthe Motion Picture Industry than any other city in the 

orld. A vast sum of money pours into Los Angeles banks each week 

every pajrt of the country- for motion-picture pay-rolls, construc-

Inceville Items * 




William S. Hart, the noted Ince 
star, with two camera men and a 
-company j>£ some thirty players, left 
Inceville this week for the isolated 
regions of Boulder Creek in the north- 
ern pan of California, where they 
will make a number of scenes for the 
current Triangle-Kay -Bee features in 
which he will be starred. The com- 
pany will remain away about three 
necks, providing the weather is ac- 
ceptable for photography. The story 
in which Hart is appearing is from 
the pen of J. G. Hawks. It is a tale 
of the Canadian Northwest and there- 
fore will offer the great character ac- 
tor mi a new role. Great prepara- 
tions were made before the depar- 



ture of the company. Several trunk- 
loads of costumes and trappings 
were rather insignificant in compari- 
son with the huge sleighs which were 
part of the outfit Some haxardou* 
feats, it is said, await performance Py 
Harl and hi- players upon their arri- 
val, Among these is to be a fierce 
hand to hand combat beneath the 
surface of an icy lake in the moun- 
tains. Another is the daring ride on 
horseback over a ro]>e bridge that 
crosses a deep gully. The locations 



the 



nt of 



avc been arranged by an ad vancc 
nn and work will commence iinnie- 
iatcly upon the arrival of the troupe. 



Three of Ince's most distinguished 
players this week arc beginning vaca- 
tions! following the completion of the 
respective Triangle Kay-Bee features 
in which they will be Marred. They 
are Frank Keenan, William H. 
Thompson and Bessie Barriscale. Mr. 
Thompson, the veteran of the trio, 
has just completed a performance 
under the direction of Charles Giblyn 
in a virile sociological drama. Kee- 
nan has just concluded his work as 
co-star with Mary Upland, in a strong 
modern drama under the direction of 
Reginald Barker. And Hiss Barris- 
cale has finally removed her make-up 
tor the part of a nun in a beautiful 
romance of the Balkans in which she 
appeared with William Desmond un- 
der the direction of Scott Sidney. 



on, the comedian prides himself on 
lis pugilistic ability. So he waded 
nto the combatants, and for two full 
sinutes the "fur flew." When he 
merged from the melee, his right eye 
ras seen to be assuming decidedly 
hnormal proportions. The swelling 
nd discoloration, however, have their 
irtues. for now it is not necessary

lalcly, all the scenes prior to the

It fell to the lot of Stage Manager 
Tom Brierly this week to avert what 
might have proven, a disaster at Ince- 
ville during the filming of some 
scenes in the current Triangle Kay- 
Bee feature in which H. B. Warner 
is appearing as star under the direc- 
tion of Charles Swickard. The 
scenes in question depict a fierce bat- 
tle in East India and among the 
"props" employed were twelve can- 
non. Sue of. these were genuine, 
while the other half dozen wcrc"-built 
of wood by Brierly's force. Instruc- 
tions were given the actors playing 
the artillerymen to use only the iron 
guns in the scenes and to "fake" the 
discharge from the frailer weapons by 

■ using smoke-pots. So deceptive, 
however, were the wooden cannon 
that in the excitement of the moment, 
some careless "extras" loaded the 
imitation guns. By an act of Provi- 
dence, Brierly chanced to be passing 
near the scene of action, as Director 

' Swickard Aas about to order the bat- 
tle photographed. He detected one 
of the men about to ignite the fuse 
in one of the bogus cannon and 
shouted a warning just in time to 
prevent what seemed an impending 



MARGARET THOHFSON 

In the city of Trinidad, Colorado, 
since made famous as a strike center, 
Margaret Thompson, of the Ince-Tri- 
anglc players, was born. Her parents 
went to Portland, Oregon, where she 
was educated. She became interested 
in motion picture dramas and resolved 
to become a moving picture actress. 
With this ambition she left Portland 
and journeyed to Southern California 
and Inceville. 

Miss Thompson immediately won 
favor in her new work through her 
ability to ride; as well a* by her nat- 
ural beauty, which loses none of its 
charm on the screen. She worked 



Inccville's recent consignment of 
(nil-blooded Sioui Indian s — which 
henceforth will be a permanent ad- 
junct of the Ince-Trianglc plant in the 
Santa Monica mountains — is this 
week being employed to advantage. 
The redskins are appearing in the 
spectacular western drams in which 
Charles Ray, the young luce favorite 
who was recently promoted to star- 
dom, is appearing cinder the direction 
of Scott Sidney, In all their war- 
paint and! feathers they are providing 
thrill after thrill by their spectacular 
rides down mountainsides astride 
bare-back ponies. The scenes are de- 
clared to be among the most impres- 
sive ever filmed at roe I nee plant 




parti. 



William Collier, the comedian, is 
going about Inceville this week 
proudly exhibiting ■ "black eye"—

FILM FACTS FOR PHOTO- 
FLAYBRI 

The entire world looks to Southern 
California, and more specifically, to 
Los Angeles, when the subject of mo- 
tion pictures is discussed. And right- 
fully do they look this way, for Loa 
Angeles, known as the "Photoplay 
Capital of the ■World," houses more 
motion picture studios and morn pho- 
toplayert than anv nthrr fliv. 

To the visiting tourist who pays 
the city's suburbs a flying visit, one 
of the first questions asked it gener- 
ally this: "Where are the motion 
picture studios?" 

One does not have to look Ions; or 
far without coming into contact with 
some phase of the great motion pic- 
ture industry in or near Los Angeles. 
Even on the main streets o( the city 
a large automobile may pass with a 
crowd of motion picture acton or 
traffic may be blocked at Seventh and 
ilroadway for. several minutes, but 
the traffic officers merely wail good- 
naturedly and say: "Only a motion 
picture scene." 

In the cafes of the city and sur- 
rounding towns the photoplaycrs play 
no small part. One may be dining In 
almost any restaurant or cafe in 
Southern California and on looking up 
may see Mary Pickford, Edna Good- 
rich, Anna Held, D. W. Griffith or 
any of the steller players or produc- 
ers enter. Frobably, on close observ- 
ance, one will notice that but two 
table* behind sits Kfaek Sennelt, Ma- 
bel Xormanii. Oiarlr* Chaplin or the 
Gssk Sisters. 

On the boulrvard* surround irtB Los 
Angeles the visitor is apt lo see any 
of the photoplay stars speeding along 
at a lively clip. With beautiful boule- 
vards running to every pari of the 
vicinity, with ideal weather conditions 
prevailing, it is no wonder that the 
film stars love to speed up and down 
the finest boulevards in the world- 

For the benefit of those interested, 
a general list of the producing com- 
panies operating in and around Los 
Angeles is here given. This list does 
not include every company under or- 
ganization or all of the lesser ones, 
but for general reference work this 
list gives an idea of the rxicnsiveness

Southern California 11 a whole. This report wilt be accurate ami will carry 
the leal of Uncle Sam. 

There hai been much written and more aald about the mini of money in- 
veiled In the motion picture induitry in Los Angelei and about the number 
of people employed in ihii buiincn. Every hanker, builncu man, Photo- 
player, writer and Individual hoi had hli or her Idea about this matter. The 
Chamber of Commerce ha* compiled data on the lubjecj, Eastern exitici, 
jciliiui of the growth of the Induitry here, harped upon this subject in vol u mm 
of editorial matter, endeavoring to belittle the local picture industry and to 
deny iti growth. 

Now comes along one, Uncle Sam, who will produce figures that no maga- 
ainc writer can deny. They will be accurate and juit. There will be no 
exaggeration. They will give in detail all data pertaining to the industry, 
number of players, number of persons identified with (he business, amount ol 
capital expended daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and number of planta and con- 
cerns operali'ig. Theie stitiitici will be invaluable 10 everyone concerned and 
we await Uncle Sam's verdict. 



WORLD CELEBRITIES HERE 
Tourists in every clime and in every country arc impressed by some one 
ihinj in particular which always remains with them. In Southern California 
they arc impressed by many thing*, flowers, scenery, climate and hospitality. 
But during recent years they have been impressed by the moltun picture in- 
dustry and when a tourist, who has visited Los Angeles during 191S, takes 
jn a moving picture show, he will naturally think of this rity. 

' Tin- louri*ls' principal sightseeing tour here leads to one ol the motion 
picture studios. As an example of this, following ii given a list of some oi 
the nation's greatest products who have visited Universal City during the 
year- Thomas R. Marshal], vice-president of the United States; Tliomas A. 
Edison, America's greatest inventive genius; William Jennings Bryan, former 
Secretary of State; Henry Ford, philanthropist, automobile magnate and now 
a world figure as a result of the "jitney cruise;" Madam Scliumann-Heink. 
the world's greatest contralto; Madam Mclba. another of the world's most 
noted songbirds; Sir Thomas I.ipton, Ireland's rclebratcd sportsman and tea 
king; Samuel Compers, president of the American Federation of Labor; 
George Ade and Irvin S. Cobb, American humorists; Governor Edwin If.

izations of America and England. 



GREETINGS TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND FRIENDS 
The PHOTOPLAYERS WEEKLY takes this opportunity of taHBtQai 
to its many subscribers and friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 
In this issue, our CHRISTMAS NUMBER, the staff of this paper has 
endeavored to give its readers an issue that wilt not only be a credit to itself, 
but one that will tell the wonderful talc of the development of the motion- 
picture industry in Los Angeles and Southern Califomia. 

, Under handicapped conditions the new management has endeavored to 
give representation to each and every studio in and about Los Angeles. We 
hope that we have covered the ground at least to some extent We have 
endeavored to give news events in connection with every studio and film-pro- 
dncrng plant near here and have made an effort to weave these events around 
as many P h at o players as our limited space will permit. 

And we hope that you. the jury, will be a little lenient in your criticism 
of our first efforts. When a publication revives n> criticism; the publishers 
may rest assured that they arc making at least a few friends. If, on the other 
band, they art showered with complaints, they may know that there is room 
for improvement If. in this instance, we do not receive too many complaints, 
wc shall take the liberty of hoping that our efforts have not been entirely 
futile. We will be encouraged and will bend every effort to give to Los 
Angeles, that great "heart of the picture-producing world." a livc-up-to-lbc- 
minute Photoplayer publication, one that is not influenced by any studio, or by 
anyone connected with that industry, but guided by a management whose only 
interest is to give and produce thc.bcsl results. 

We need and ask the co-operation of everyone connected with the indus- 
try. We owe a great deal to the pithMieity departments of the various studios 
for many past favors. We also ow/ something to the managements and heads 
of all the studios- And last, we owe a word to the Photoplayers themselves 
who act, work, produce and who make possible this growing industry. 

Again, the Editorial Staff of the PHOTOPLAYERS" WEEKLY extends 
to everyone connected with the Motion Picture Industry a Merry Christmas 
and a Happy New Year.

The year Nineteen Fifteen has all but run its course, To millions 



othejt 



lands the year has been as sad as any in the Dark Ages. Practically every 
living being, civilized or uncivilized, has been influenced by the long-delayed 
World War. Now that it has come, is here, and is still coming, we are all 
inort or lesi effected by its cruel hand. 

Many industries as a result of the iron heel have been paralized. Many 
have been swept out of existence just as Belgium and Servia have been effaced 
from the map of Europe. Other industries have gained in proportions hitherto 
unknown. 

The motion picture industry,, although hindered in its foreign output, has 
gained gradually during the year Nineteen Fifteen, not because of the war but 
in spite of it. The motion picture industry is expanding, growing and gaining 
in proportion as eo industry has done in the past and judging from past events 
will continue to develop. 

Los Angeles, the bright and growing neeleus of this vast industry, has 
prowled tremendously by the growth of fildom. Studio after studio has beei^ 
buils in and about the city. Many of the eastern producers, skeptical about the 
west, have at last admitted oar superior conditions and arc making this their 
great center. 

With the coming of each new company, come hundreds of people and 
thousands of dollars for local circulation and investment. Every business 
boose in Los Angeles is more or less influenced by Ihii industry. Some of 
them can not see it but the fact remains. Every loyal Angclcoo owci the 
motion picture industry a debt that can never be paid. The co-operation on 
the part of business houses and individuals, however, whenever an opportunity 
arises, will in some respects return the favor. 

Nineteen Fifteen has been a big year in our industry. Nineteen Sixteen, 
another year, is already knocking at cur door. We believe that the coming 
year will bring far greater results to the industry. And to that end we shall 
bend our efforts. 



WHO SHALL SAY? 
lr these dais when the attention of society is focuiscd upon the world of 
Mov i n g pictures, the startling e su st- i fa tj i tbe ultra fashions, the extreme func- 
tions of the men and women who are giving of iheir talents, or their youth 
and beauty In this most modern branch of entertainment an, it is small won- 
der thai, one by one. recruits arc added from the real genius of the age, music, 
drama, art, and the very best of managerial and directorial ability that money, 

and hip iiionr;-, ran pn; for. In short, the business of moving pictures IS one 
of the vital ItriotJJ before the public eye. and has its direct influence upon more 
cla-ste* of people than any other today. 

Though cannon belch and guns of war pour forth death-dealing volleys in 
the theater of war, and though men are dj'ing in the, trenches and al home the 
women weep. Mill the rest of the world must be entertained. Everything per- 
taining to picturedom has proved of interest, not only to certain classes, but 
to all classes. There is more in the press today concerning the doing in the 
world where the silent drama is produced than of any other form of enter- 
tainment. It is not to be regarded as the "survival of the fittest," but rather 
the trend of the age in w'hirh wc live. 

It is an nee of quickened perception, of educated imagination. All society 
has come to feci a sort of proprietary interlst in the men and women who by 
their talent, genius and beauty reflect dramatic stories upon the screen, and 
by the finest exercise of those talents, robbed as llicy arc of the use of speech. 
Considered in an age gone past as indispensable. 

It is a wonderful age of progression. Airships, machines of war, gigantic 
telescopes that will unravel the secrets of the stars, all of these will suffer the 
Mine evolution that will change the world in fifty years from now so that the 
man. is not living who can calculate the difference it will make in human life. 
And the eamcr.-i-— that most wonderful and marvelous piece of mechanism today 
—who can saj where the genius of fifty years from now will place its possi- 
bilities! 



UNCLE SAM WILL DECIDE 

We are anxiously awaiting the report of the United States Government 
on statistical data pertaining to the motion picture industry in Southern Cali- 
fornia. During to* past few months government officials have been diligently 
■t work compiling statistic* on ihii industry not only In Los Angeles but in 



IN THIS ISSUE 

In (hia issue of the PHOTOPLAYERS WEEKLY appear several arti- 
cles written by men of prominence in Lea Angelei. Mayor C. E, Sebastian 
has prepared a beautiful "Welcome" to the thousands of Photoplayers here, 
an expression cf his appreciation of the people who are doing so much for 
our city. . 

Arthur W. Kinney, Industrial Cqmmiiiioner of the Lot Angelei Chamber 
oF Commerce has also prepared an article on the "Value of the Hotion Picture 
Induitry to Loi Angeles." I-, thla article Mr. Kinney gives a clear, concise 
reiume of the motion picture induitry, past, present and' what is in store for 
the future. He alio makei mention of the forthcoming United Statei Govern- 
ment census on the motion picture interests in Southern California, which will 
be issued by Uncle Sam very shortly, 

Montley H. Flint, one of the welt-known bankers of this city, vice president 
of the Los Angelei Truit 4S*vingi Bank/has alio given his opinion of the 
banking intervals on said film industry and what the banks owe the motion 
picture organisations He plainly admits that because of the fact that th.il 
vast industry hai come to us voluntarily, unsolicited and without effort on our 
part we, the rusinen Interests of the city, are prone to paas It up ai unworthy 
of consideration. He shows its value to us, in cold dollars and cents, and 
urge* thai Loi Angelia, as a whole, take more interest in the third largest 
manufacturing business In Southern California, and one of the largest in the 
world. 

In other limes, from time to time, will appear articles by men of promi- 
nence in all proftisloni and walks of life on the motion picture Industry. 
Bankers, business men, professional peaple and Others will be aikcd to give 
an expression of their attitude toward a business that advertises Loi Angelei 
to the four comers of the world the great tuition picture eenter.

itizen. Personally, I am of the firm con- 
ing picture producing companies and the 



money left here by visitors to the two California Expositions during 1915 were 
the chief factors contributing to the slight improvement in local business con- 
ditions apparent within the past few months. This statement, I feci sure, will 

be borne out to the satisfaction of even the most pessimistic by an automobile' 

or street-car trip, or an interesting tramp afoot, through Edendale, Holly-wood, 
or Universal City, where some idea will be gained of the vast number of people 
employed in producing moving-picture films which arc featured throughout the 

This wonderful souree of wealth came to us without effort on our part. 
Wc offered no inducements to the pioneer producing companies, as any locality 
ordinarily must do to secure revenue-producing industries. It came to US as a 
gift of nature, resultant upon the ruggedncss of our mountain scenery and the 
'wonderful Pacific at our very doors. Perhaps it is because the wealth has 
poured into our coffers without effort that we do not more thoroughly appre- 
ciate it, for the ease with which Los Angeles fell heir to the world's greatest 
picture- producing plants undoubtedly accounts, in a large measure, for the 
seeming indifference of our authorities and citiicns toward it. 

1 can more clearly express my views by asking what would happen in this 
city if a completely established, profitable corporation intended to operate in 
Los Angeles, with the definite assurance that $15,009,000 would be its annual 
expense bill? We all know that such tidings would call for column after col- 
umn of newspaper space, receptions, ground-breaking ceremonies, banquets. 
etc., and properly so. because such a prize would be worthy of celebration. 
But because the film industry came to us unheralded, it is looked upon as quite 
the commonplace thing and receives too little encouragement. Los Angeles 
■hould be proud to be known as. the "Movie City" of the world, and our author- 
ities should see that the parks and other public places are at the disposal of 
reputable producers, and our citizen- fortunate enough to own beautiful homes 
should permit their use whenever possible. In other words, Los Angelei 
should do everything that will make for the production of more pictures and 

Let us not forget that the film business has made Los Angeles an impor- 
tant export center. This locality is making pictures not only for the United 
Stales, but for the entire world. Charlie Chaplin is the joy of the remote Eng- 
lish peasant; Roscoe Arbuckte is jusl as funny on the steppes of Russia as on 
Main street: "The Birth of a Nation is playing to capacity houses in London; 
Blanche Sweet is as winsome, Kathryn Williams as daring and Francis X. 
Bushman as handsome in Paris. Berlin. Siam or China as in Los Angeles. 

Wc must noi overlook the faci thai elsewhere along the western shores of 
our great land arc to be found places naturally well adapted to the production 



ringing 



of moving-picture films — localities that would welcome the wea.lth-1 
industry— IhaU even now are holding out inducements to the producing c 
panics. Wc cannot afford to let them go. There arc splendid men at their 
beads, whom wc need as citizens in the upbuilding of Los Angeles, men who 
are willing and glad to do their full share toward our development. So let US, 
you and I, do our part in the maintenance here of the most wonderful medium 
of advertising our Sunny Southland lhat ihe hand of God or ihe art of man 
has wrought. MOTLEY H. FLINT.

The play — which requires some 
7,000 feet of film for its enactment- 
has been in the making a little more 
than three months. Miss Burke ar- 
rived in Inceville in fulfillment of her 
$40,00X1 contract during the first week 
in September. For five weeks she 
worked before the camera under the 
personal direction of Incc, interpret- 
ing the title role in the production. 
Then, immediately upon her depar- 
ture for New York, work was com- 
menced on the cutting and assembling 
of the him. This process over, the 
completed play was delivered into the 
custody of Victor L. Schertzingcr, 
Jncc's young musical genius, who has 
labored tirelessly night and day since 
then, composing the original inci-

work were the finishing touches ap- 
plied.

PHOTOPLAY. ERS WEEKLY 



Southern California, World's 

Picture Producing Center 

By E. D. HORKHEIMER 
Secretary and Treasurer The Balboa Amusement Producing Co 



Herewith The Photo players Weekly takes pleasure in printing a 
resume of the reason* why Southern California is the logical moving 
picture center of the world. Some time ago several articles, written by 
Don Ueaney, appeared in the eastern trade journals, which attempted to 
discredit the West Coast in favor of New York and vicinity as the beat 
place for pictiiTc-m.iking. The Photoplayers Weekly has had the accom- 
panying reply by E. D. Horkheimer on file for some time. But heavy 
demands on our space have made it impossible to give' the matter pub- 
licity before. Alt things taken into consideration, we believe it a par- 
ticularly strong feature for our Christmas issue, as it shows the trade 
and the people of Southern California just where The Photoplaycrs 
Weekly stands— for the West Coast, whieh is the established cinema- 
producing center of the uniTerse, as Mr, Horkheimer makes plain. — 
The Editor. 



As. to the relative merits of the east 
and west for producing moving pic- 
tures, there is. no ■■ longer any debate 
among men foremost in the business. 
If the silent drama consisted prin- 
cipally of players and properties, the 
east would undoubtedly be favored. 
Bat since cinematographic produc- 
tions depend more on other considera- 
tions — scenery, climate, etc. — which 
cannot be found anywhere to com- 
pare with Southern California, from a 
photographic standpoint, this part of 
. the Pacific Coast has naturally be- 
come the world's picture producing 
center. 

Ordinarily, a discussion of this sub- 
ject would be uncalled for; but since 
the representation of a screen hero, 
who has gone east for a season of 
work recently, declared in a trade 
Bs jjftjj We y York and its en- 
e superior in every rcgard'tu . 
the "land of sunshine" for film pur-. 
poses, it is not untimely to act forth 
a few of the facts in the case once 
more. Particularly is this true, since 
it has been variously estimated that 
between seventy-Eve and eighty-five 
per cent of the moving picture plays 
are now being staged in and about 
Los Angeles. 

Why is it. let me ask to begin with, 
that all of the biggest American pho- 
toplay producers have migrated to the 
west? The industry had its start in 
the east, where all the leading manu- 
facturers had their first studios. But 
it wasn't long until the Biograph, 



jouraaj 



Vhagraph, Selig, Essenay, Universal, 
Lubin, .Kale in, Famous and many 
others came to Southern California. 
It is true that some of these still 
maintain eastern studios, hut they 
have found that for all-the-y ear-round 
outdoor work, the sunny climate of 
the Pacific Coast cannot be excelled. 

To be sure, the east has some sun- 
shiny weather, but its photographic 
qualities are nothing like those of 
Southern California. The sort of sun- 
week out, come about once a year 
along the Atlantic. Hind you, I'm 
not decrying the east, for I'm an 
easterner myself. But t realize that 
the Atlantic seaboard has picture- 
making difficulties which cannot be 
satisfactorily overcome. 

As for the contention that the 
east's lack of sunshine can be offset 
hv indoor studio work with artificial 
lightsT"n"o"15mr-R'!;r knows anything of 
the niceties of photographic f* win 
maintain that as good a picture can 
be made under artificial lights a> with 
natural light. A substitute is never 
equal to the genuine article. Further- 
more, working under artificial lights 
is extremely hard on the eyes. It is 
well known that many players are laid 
up from the strain. It takes most of 
them a long while to get used to the 
brilliant arcs; while some of the best 

I realize that there are certain 
times and conditions when artificial 
lighting becomes necessary in picture 



making. During the rainy season, 
most of the western studios resort 14 
it, in order to keep up with their 
work, But It Is never to be preferred 
to sunlight In emergencies it will 
answer. As for the photographic va- 
riation sometimes noted in pictures 
filmed under both conditions, that is 
the fault at the cameraman. Balboa 
productions give no grounds for tak- 
ing such exception. 

The critic of the west declared it to 
be greatly handicapped in the matter 
of props and costumes available. I 
would call attention to the fact that 
for this the Pacific Coast icglon can 
hardly be blamed. Rather, it Is the 
fault of the particular studio which 
lacks the equipment necessary to 
mike productions from start to fin- 
ish. 

A motion picture studio worthy of 
the name should be complete in every 
detail, I know there are some com- 
panies that start with only a star. 
They haven't even a camera, Then 
they go out and rent all of the props 
and accessories as they need them. 
Naturally, such manufacturers will be 
handicapped. But at Balboa we have 
made it a point to be fully equipped 
in the matter of props. Our store 
rooms have a hundred thousand aep- 

sort of set from hangings to furni- 
ture, no matter what the period. 
Should it happen (hat we lack any- 
thing, it is purchased immediately. 
We hold it to be wasteful and unbusi- 
nesslike to rent articles that arc 
needed constantly. 

Pictures, construed cinematograph- 
ically, are not merely portraits in ac- 
tion. They must have attractive back- 
grounds. Save in winter scenes, these 
must indicate life and verdure. In 
the east, you get St only a few months. 
out of the year. The rest of the time 
the trees are bare and the ground is 
hard and cold. While in Southern 
California flowers and foliage never 
disappear. The supply is constantly 
renewing. When pinched in this re- 
Hard, eastern picture producers go 
south iSF ,nt ' r exteriors. Those who 
have worked in !. na ' section know full 
well that it cannot cC.TP 1 ^ photo- 
graphically with the west. 

We are told that the producer is 
interfered with by western municipal- 
ities. Well, what about the way in 
which Mew York has driven alt the 
studios off Manhattan Island just re- 
cently? Furthermore, the law there 
requires all film to be carried in dou- 
ble-lined galvanized iron cases, and it 
may not be taken in subways, street

cars or elevated railroads. Such con-, 
dltlons are hardly advantageous to 
the screen producer. 

To the best of my knowledge, thcra 
are no such restrictions anywhere on 
the Pacific Const, nor are any con- 
templated. Balboa's experience has 
been thnt municipal authorities ara 
only too willing to co-operate with 
producers when their people conduct 
themselves as ladies and gentlemen 
should. Where picture makers have 
trouble in netting permission to work 
In public, it is usually because some 
of their fellows have abused privileges 
previously extended and made them- 
selves nuisances. Time permits to 
work in parks and other public places 
are granted in Los Angeles and. vicin- 
ity and will always be renewed dur- 
ing good behavior on the part of [he 
beneficiaries. But companies indulg- 
ing freely in so-called "rough stuff 
are occasionally required to get their 
permits from day to day. 

You can't photograph on the big 
estates in the east unless you. have 
access to the owner or submit to the 
graft of a caretaker. Representative 
companies never have the least bit of 
trouble in getting permission to work 
on the grounds of the most exclusive 
people in Pasadena, Long Beach and 
Hollywood! many companies have the 
freest entree to the homes and es- 
tates of the rich in and about San 
Francisco and Santa Barbara. True, 
some producers here have been black- 
listed in (his regard, because in times 
gone by (heir representatives have 
cast obloquy upon our profession. 

But the condition is not due to the 
west. It is the picture people them- 
selves who are to blame. Western' 
hospitality is axiomatic. One of the 
biggest cattlemen of Southern Cali- 
fornia, who had had trouble with an- 
other moving picture company, finally 
permitted some Balboans to work on 
his ranch; and when they finished he 
was so well pleased with them that 
he invited the entire corporation of 
250 people down for Sunday and gave 
them a barbecue at his own expense. 
No on* in the east could do any more. 
There is some truth in the conten- 
tion that eastern studios have a 
£y*£fctei number of good actors to pick 
from and ean cas ' types easier, but 
this advantage i : £ offset by the faet 
that the players in the wT«t are more 
experienced before the camera. Good 
actors on the Pacific Coast never seek ' 
for work long. The many studios 
here are constantly in need of more 
talent: As for ,N'c* York's foreign 
quXncra, they are all beginning to 
show unmistakable signs of Ameri- 
canization. These must be eliminated 
if photographed on the spot. It is 
simpler to build sets of such locali- 
ties and use trained "extras," of which 
the west has an army. 

In thes connection it is interesting 
to note that those big producers who 
have not yet located in the west are 
now negotiating for sites in or around 
Los Angeles. The business has be- 
come so specialized that several 
large realty* operators devote them- 
selves entirely to finding suitable lo- 
cations for new studios. We don't 
have to go two or three hours away 
for our mountains, as the New York 
producer does. They are in Southern 
California's back yard; while the Pa- 
cific borders the front Although we 
have practically perpetual sunshine, 
the land of snow- and ice is B o close 
at hand that all of the Rex Beach and 
Jack London Alaskan stories are put 
on in and near Los Angeles. As for 
the charge that California climate is 
enervating, well, all I can say is that 
the steady growth of the picture in- 
dustry in this vicinity doesn't indi- 
cate it. Particularly is [bis so in Bal- 
boa's case. In two years' time, we 
have built one of the largest actually 
independent moving picture producing 
plants in the world at Long Beach; 
and we haven't reached our limit yet. 
As naturally as it is for the south 
to be the center of the cotton indus- 
try and Pittsburg to be iron-mill hub, 
just so Is Southern California the hab- 
itat and established home of the cine- 
matographic activities of America. As 
a proof of this, I need but to cite that 
all of the real big American pictures 
have been produced here. Film playi 
will continue to be made fn other 
parts of the country, just as there are 
sporadic examples of all industries 
everywhere. 

But let any picture-goer compare 
the eastern and western screen pro- 
ductions as to settings, costumes, 
, lighting effects, photography and the 
various other important elements that 
enter into ideal cinematography; nine 
out of ten will favor the western- 
made pictures, By this I do not 
mean the so-called western dramas 
featuring frontier life and cowboys, 
but the strong, red-blooded photo- 
plays of everyday and present-day 
American life. 

It ia the exteriors that go a large 
way In nuking up the striking and

raphy, after you have a good plot

ductions have all consisted principally

LASKVS PLACE IN PICTURE 
WORLD 

But Two Yean Have Elapacd Sfctca 
Initial Work Started on Sita of 

Pr tlBB t Studio i—Now Pro- 

ducinj Many of Wm- 

dom'i Steller Play*. 

By Kenneth MeGaffey. Publicity Di- 
rector Jeiie I- Lasky Feature 
Play Co. 

Two year* ago Christmas Day, three 
.three men left Hotel Alexandria in 
■earth of a moving picture studio. 
They were uncertain as to what they 
wanted and wt*»t to do wil h it when 
they did find a studio, but u they had 
journeyed all the way from New 
York to Lot Angeles to go into the 
moving picture business, they did not 
intend to let this fact interfere with 
their plans. 

That has been the reason for the 
success of the Jesse L. Lasky Fea- 
ture Play Company. It is the am- 
bition of the Lasky organization now, 
as it was at first, to make every pro- 
duction a dramatic and artistic photo- 
graphic masterpiece and not a moving 
picture. Therefore, many moving 
. picture traditions have been violated. 

The three men in search of a stu- 
dio were Jesse 1- Lasky. Cecil B. De 
Mille and Dustin Fanmm. Jesse L. 
Lasky bad acquired much fame in the 
theatrical world as a producer of 
clever vaudeville features; Cecil S. 
De Mille had all the dramatic in- 
stincts and pi 3 writing ability of his 
famous father: Dustin Farnum was 
an actor of international reputation. 

They finally located at the corner 
of Vine and Selma streets in Holly- 
wood, California. A disused garage 
was the only semblance to a studio 
with which they started. 

It was here "The Squaw Man" was 
produced, on a stage twenty by thirty 
feet in size, and with a gigantic white 
cotton umbrella as a diffnser. 

One year later. Oh this same site, 
marked the completion of the largest 
glass studio in the country. The 
company now employs four directors; 
a stock company of over a hundred: 
a carpenter crew and shop force 
working day and night: a complete 
printing and developing plant, and is 
considered to be one of the best 
equipped studios in the country. 

Their first photoplay, "The Squaw 
Man." made an instantaneous bit 
Kith Dustin Farnnm in the lead. 



Thii was followed by Edward Abelea 
la "Bnwttcri Million*," Edmund 
Breeie In The Mister Mind." and 
Cecil B, De Mille'* nnt picture at > 
lull-fledged director— Dustin Farnum 
in "The Virginian-" This was the 
first of the phenomenal successes and 
placed the Lasky name among the 
first of the picture producing firms. 

Prior to the production of "Tho 
Virginian," the film had been sent to 
other plants to be developed and 
printed, but the Lasky company have 
now installed their own developing 
and printing department. 

At this time, the Paramount re- 
leasing organisation was formed and 
the Lasky production* induced 10 en- 
ter. 

For out-door scene*, an 18,000-acre 
ranch was purchased in the San Fer- 
nando valley. On this ranch the big 
battle scenes in "The Rose of the 
Raneho" and "The Warreni of Vir- 
ginia" were taken. 

In the But, Mr. Goldsmith, gen- 
eral manager of the firm, by special 
arrangement with Mr. Belasco, se- 
cured Che film rights to all the Be- 
lasco productions and contracts were 
made with many of the leading dra- 
matic stars of the country, including 
Geraldioe Farrar. the distinguished 
operatic prima donna. 

Today the president of the com- 
pany is Jesse L. Lasky; Samuel 
Goldfish, -treasurer and general man- 
ager, attends to the New York busi- 
ness: Cecil B. De Mille, the director 
general, has charge of the producing 
end at Hollywood. Associated with 
Mr. De Mille as directors are his 
brother. Mr. Win, C. De Mille, George 
H. Melford, and Frank Reicher, for- 
mer general director for David Bc- 
laseo. 

Blanche Sweet heads the list of per- 
manent Lasky stars. She is sur- 
rounded by such well-known stars as 
Fanny Ward. Charlotte Walker, Vic- 
tor Moore, Theodore Roberts, Wal- 
ls** Reid. Cleo Ridgcly. and Mae 

Some o' the notable artists who 
have appeared in Lasky pictures are 
Edith TiTWtlH. Edith Winne Mathi- 
son, Laura Hope Cruse, Donald Brian, 
Lou-Teltegen, Vale*ka Surratt, Ed- 
ward Abeles and Ina Claire. 

For the 1916 season the Lasky com- 
pany will produce in photodramatic 
form a number of the works of the, 
late Mark Twain. Other bin; prtjJuc" 
lions arc contemplate, the titles of 
which have not tWg announced.

(By Dori> Seliroadcr, Publicity Depi,, 

Vitagraph Company of America, 

Hollywood Studio*) 

Of all the beauty spot* in and about 
Los Angcle*. Hollywood i* the peer, 
and moving picture men have been 
quick to recognize it* advantage*. 
Quite the mo*t recent arrival in thia 
"Mecca of the Movies" is the large 
California branch of the Vitagraph 
company of America, which wa* until 
quite recently established at Santa 
Monica, Cal. 

The Santa Monica Studios, csub- 
lishcd some four years ago by Man- 
ager Rollin 5turgcou, were deemed 
for a long time quite large enough 
for what part of the production of 
Vitagraph Life Portrayals were done 
in California. But a* activities increa*- 
ed and the eompanie* working in the 
plant grew more numerou*, it wa* 
soon very clear that a move would 
have to be madr. Business Manager 
W. S, Smith and Producer Sturgeon 
looked a long time before they select- 
ed what seemed to them the ideal lo- 
cation for the new plant. At last they 
found it — eleven acres of lovely plain 
and hill country, in a most accessible 
part of town, and high above the fog 
belt. The ground was purchased and 
the buildings were started over night. 
Now the plant at Talmadge and Pros- 
pect Avenues is one of the best and 
most complete of any Pacific Coast 
Branch. Comfortable dressing rooms 
with every eonvenience, a great ittge, 
100x150 feet, a spacious property de- 
partment, costume department, etc, 
everything up-to-o , aje-*7^"J n " ' g f*" IM . 
vie cable. ^Tne laboratories are still be- 
Vng conducted at the Santa Monica 
studios during the erection of the very 
newest style dark rooms, chemical de- 
partment and joining rooms. The siae 
of the property permits of even yet 
greater growth. 

During ihe past year many excellent 
releases have come from the West 
Coast Studios of the Vitagraph Com- 
pany. Producing Manager Rollin 
Sturgeon is responsible for such fea- 
tures as "The Chalice of Courage," 
"The Woman's Share," "The Sage 
Brush Gal," "A Child of lb* North," 



and many other* equally well known. 
Four director* arc generally busy at 
the Vitagraph plant, including Rollin 
Sturgeon himself, who is at pre*ent 
filming a well-known novel by James 
Oliver Curwood. Through Troubled 
Water*," "The Red Stephano," "Bar- 
rier* of Prejudice," "Cal Marvin's 
Wife," and "A Scandal in Hlckrillc" 
are a few of the recent release* from 
these studio*. 

The excellent stock company is 
headed by Mary Anderson, Anne 
Schaefer, Web*ter Campbell WilUam 
Duncan, George Holt, and many fa- 
miliar name* are seen among ihem 
such a* Otto Ledercr, George Kunkel, 
J. Carlton W*atherby and Jack Mow- 
er. George Lawrence, Corinne Grif- 
fith, Florence Vidor and Clara Toner 
are newcomer*, bat have proven their 
worth already in such film* as the 
forthcoming releases, "Bittersweet" 
and "Bill Peters' Kid," the tatter a 
Mary Anderson feature. 



CLEO MADISON'S COMPANY 

Cleo Madison and her company of 
Uni Versailles recently left the Univer- 
sal Cky .-.'.-. i Jl'-i for a trip of several 
day* to San Francisco, where they are 
to make exterior scenes in the produc- 
tion of a five-reel feature entitled, "A 
Soul's Crucible." The scenario for 
this production was prepared by Mis* 
Madison and Kathleen Kerrigan, sis- 
ter of J. Warren Kerrigan, the pop- 
ular film favorite. The cast engaged 
to appear in ihis production ■* an all- 
star aggregation. Mist Madison in the 
stellar role being supported by Adele 
Farrington. Edward Hcam, William 
Mont; and Ray Hanford. 

They took with them a number of 
banks of Cooper-Hewitt lights for 
making interior and exterior scenes 
along ihe "Barbary Coast." So far as 
can be l earned, thia fc thj fj"' f-_ 
.L^Tiin "i the sort to have been made 
by any of the companies in the South- 
ern California picture colony. 



Myrtle Stcdman is reading, read- 
ing, reading these days. She i* look- 
ing for novels with good parts for 
herself in thetn. She is not content to 
let others do all this, and believes in 
doing all she can for the management. 
One of the hardest things a company 
has to contend with is tpe proper se- 
lection of stories, and the assistance 
of the artist* themselves along this 
line is rare and is much appreciated.

patching them.

The site ot the Fine Arts-Triansle 
Studios, 4500 Sunset Boulevard, Los 
Angeles, California, might be termed 
a veritable city, with the hundreds of 
people employed in the production 
of pictures and often still active 
through the night and into the morn- 
ing tinder the large Cooper Hewitt 
lights in the inside studio. 

To those who have not had the op- 
portunity of personally inspecting this 
plant, some idea of its magnitude may 
be learned from the fact that approx- 
imately ten thousand feet of exposed 
negative film stock emanates from 
there each week. Ten producers are 
on the jump from morning to night.

DOLLAR A FOOT / 

After three days* futile efforts to 
photograph some "close-ups" o" a 
running fox. Ford 'Sterling, who is 
directing a Keystone comedy embody- 
ing a hunt, conceived the idea of 
offering twenty-five dollars to any 
Keystone cameraman who would 
brjng htm twenty-five feet of accept- 
able film, showing the escaping fox. 
For nearly a week, any one of the 
eight cameramen in the employ of 
the company could be found in a small 
forest near the studios, spending their 

spare time trying to photograph the 
elusive renard. In spile of the ruses

organization in California, additions 
in the form of buildings have been 
made to the already stationed studio 
buildings. With the recent comple- 
tion of the hundred new dressing 

rooms, the interior of the Griffith 

plant impresses one as a good sized 
village.

The money finally went to Kenneth

PHOTOPLAYERS WEEKLY 



DECEMBER 18, 101* 



Morosco-Bosworth 
Studio 



A policy <>{ expansion and improve- 
ment lias taken a firm grip at the 
■ studio of the Oliver Morocco Photo- 
play Company ia Los Angeles. The 
ii'.oi t important development alo ng 
this line was the recent purchase of 
a large bungalow property adjoining 
the, studio proper. The grounds of 
-the property make room for a wait- 
ing room for "extras" awaiting their 
scenes and the extension of scene 
dock*. 

It is planned to house the scenario 
department technical staff and art di- 
rector in the newly-acquired bunga- 
low, making room available for other 
needs in the offices -vacated by these. 
The additional property, acquired it 
a cost of several thousand dollars, 
adds to the appearance of the model 
studio of the Pacific Coast. The 
bungalow is a pretty, vine-covered 
home and is so desirable for office 
room that few heads of departments 
have not made a plea for space in it. 

Carpenters and scenic artists are 
especially active at the studio at this 
time building new scenery for the pre- 
tentious productions now in the mak- 
ing and contemplated. All scenery 
is to be made fifteen feet high to per- 
mit of longer "shots" being taken, 
while all sets will be of the most sub- 
stantial construction in keeping with 
the studio . policy to dress nil produc- 
tions properly. 



Anna Held was mixing the famous 
Held cocktail for some friends in a 
Los Angeles cafe and a woman in the 
party, admiring the celebrated com- 
edienne for her versatility, asks: "Is 
there anything you can't dor" "I 
can't make my eyes behave," is the 
ready response of the star. 
* • * 

"I am working with Anna Held," ii 
often heard among the motion picture 
extra people in Los Angeles nowa- 
days. They are proud of It, of course, 
but Miss Held shares their feeling to 
a considerable extent. "I enjoy work- 
ing with you It much as you do work- 
ing with me," she was heard to tell 
a handsc 



Henry B. Walthall is receiving a 
new sort of mail. It is principally 
from literary men, who applaud his 
work in "The Raven" and thank him 
for his earnest impersonation of Poe. 
These letters please Mr. Walthall 
vastly, for they are evidences of earn- 
est appreciation and there is no hint 
of v»in praisj or requests for photo- 
graphs in them.

edienne, making her first appearance 
in motion pictures in "Madame La

awaiting her entrance into a scene: 
"My, but it's warm. 1 am frying — 
French frying." 

"Kill that sun spot," calls Director 
Frank Lloyd to a stage hand as the 
bright ray plays at the feci of Miss 
Held. The chic comedienne has now 
become accustomed to getting up in 

the morning and is feeljlUT. faaflr.

VITAQRAPH NOTES 

Some actors have a following of 
whal one of them calls "hysterical 
fetitfttcs," who rave over their manly 
beauty, their stately walk, thefr curly 
locks, and their exquisite love-mak- 
ing; but it ha* remained for William 
Duncan to discover thai a greater part 
of his admirer* arc men. Letter* re- 
ceived en just one day ranged from 
the wistful appeal of a schoolboy, who 
was seeking the secret of athletic suc- 
cess, to the hearty, straightforward 
letter of approbation from an author 
of note, who saw in Mr. Duncan's 
portrayal of Cal Marvin in "Cal 
Marvin'* Wife," the idealisation of a 
leading character in one of his own 
novels. 

Sparc moments during the taking 
of his next Blue Ribbon Feature pic- 
ture at Bear Valley are spent by Rol- 
lin Sturgeon in collecting sunset

rnountfltn scenery which was shown 
to such advantage in "The Chalice of 
Courage" and i* Again to form a back- 
ground for such excellent actor* a* 
William Duncan. George Holt, Nell 
Shipman, Edgar Keller, Nell Clink 
Keller, and William Bainbridge. 

A recent flying trio to Los Angcres 
to "put through" some of his feature 

negative, was abruptly shortened 

when Hollin Sturgeon received a 
phone message from Bear Valley that 
the clouds were foretelling a heavy 

ant's bund, that it would be a "whop- 
per," he rushed back — to find that he 
only beat the big storm there by two 
hours. Some excellent effects in fall-

LE SAINT ON SERIAL 

Ed. J: Le Saint is making the third 
installment of the "Journal i Lord 
John" serial at Universal City.. Aa 
usual he Is getting some excellent 
sets as a background to the splendid 
acting. Stella Razeto is wearing green 
glasses these days to shield her eyes 
and the artists tell her that she has 
bought that nice, "green coat to match 
the glasses. She was feeling quite 
old the othCr day when she was acting 
her own Mother. Stella is appearing 
opposite William Garwood. 



taO&E R. R, SERIES 

The Signal Company headed by J, 
P. McGowan, the producer, and Helen 
Holmes, thq star, are making the 
fourth of the big railroad aerial, "The 
Girl and the Game," at the Pasadena 
studios. This is going to be a cork- 
iB£-and sensational serial with some 
high class photography. The story 
mn written by Frank H. Spearman, 
■Hap rfamous author. MeGov/an has 
-oAe 1 or two trains chartered most of 
the time and no expense is being 
spared to make this serial an epoch 
breaking one. 



HAZARDOUS FILM FEAT 

William Garwood, the star of the 
"Journal of Lord John" serial essayed 
a dangerous feat when he jumped with 
Miss: Rareto from the top of a wall 
to a quickly moving motor car, there 
was a fall of ten feet and it makes 
a big punch in the third installment 
of the photoplay. Garwood is not 
generally associated with "stunts" but 
he is very strong and athletic and will 
tackle anything he is called on to at- 
tempt — when .necessary.

Henry Otto, the producer of "Un-

putting the finishing touches on a 
two-reel gem. "A Daughter of Pen-

tured. Otto is still somewhat tired 
from his exertions in making the fea- 
ture, "Undine," and talks of having 
a short rest. Whether he gets it or 
not is another matter. He is a hard 
worker, puts a great deal of energy 
into what he is doinE and is apt to 
draw on his reserve force in his ef- 
forts to make thoroughly artistic 
photoplays. 



"AUTHOR, AUTHOR," 

CRY OF PRODUCER 

Most Important Factor In Progress 
of Motion Fictura Industry During 
Year 1915 Is Resliiation That Orig- 
inal Stories, Properly Prepared by 
Trained Writers, Form Foundation 
of Successful Pictures. 

By WILL H. RITCHEY 
Scenario Editor-in-Chief of the Bal- 
boa Amusement Producing Com- 
pany—Author of "The Rad Circle" 
Serial, the "Who Pays?" Series, Etc, 

"You can't make a silk purse out of 
a sow's earl" 

True, this quoted saying is more an- 
cient than the locket with mother's 
photo, or the lost memory stunt, or a 
hundred other thread-bare photoplay 
situations, hut it happens to form a 
most timely text for this dissertation 
on the motion picture industry. 

Blinded for years by the foolish be- 
lief that the average picture audience 

possesses no intelligence, the majority 

of film manufacturers spent good 
money In the production of scen-arioi 
that should have been consigned to 
the wastebasket. High-salaried direc- 
tors, well-known actors and actresses 
were employed, lavish stage sets were 
provided — and then the princely sum 
of fifteen, twenty, or twenty-five dol- 
lars a reel was offered (or scenarios. 

Then came the open market, so- 
called, and with this change there ap- 
peared a number of powerful inde- 
pendent producing companies. Com- 
petition became keen, and some of tlic 
concerns found themselves fighting 
with their backs to the wall. DM they 
try to produce better pictures? Yes 
and no. For, alas, ttiey continued lo 
regard the story as a minor part of the

it any wonder that the general public 

grew weary? 

The writer of this article was re- 
quested to give his view of the prog- 
ress achieved by the motion picture 
industry during the year 1915. Rather

. manufacturers to the n-jlijation thai

is to be classed as a feature that will

And let us take note right here that 
the average motion picture audience 
has developed, a wonderful keenness 

ef entertainment but also from the 
standpoint of artistry and logic. Pic- 
ture patrons know and appreciate a 
g'.od story. Likewise, they feel highly

tempts to make them swallow a faulty 

And so the down- trodden, neglected 
author is rapidly coming into his own. 
Picture producers are combing the 
country for real scenarios— and they 
are now willing to pay from one hun- 
tl-ed to two hundred and fifty dollars 
1 reel for plots that mould into good 
fcrcen dramas. As a result, the photo- 
flay author will play the leading role 
in the year to come, 1916; 

Also note this point: The supply of 
noted novels and stage plays, vehi- 
cles, as a rule, thai make very poor 
motion picture productions, is almost 
exhausted. Therefore, the call is for 
strong,, original scenarios written pri-

The Phot op layer's Weekly lakes pleasure this week ir; announcing what il 
belitves to be a high elass service for the benefit of its subscribers, the re- 
taining of Eyre Powell, a well known and successful publicity specialist, in an 
advisory capacity. We have arranged that he will give a certain amount ol 
His time to advising our subscribers in that branch of their welfare, at our 
expense. 

Powell is the directing head of nrohsbly the only organisation of ill kind 
ir the west, a complete news producing and syndicating bureau, devoted to 
[he handling of large publicity campaigns. Directing the efforts of 



photographer 



, artists in his organisation, he might be termed a "Publicity 
Engineer," having made a study of publicity, in a truly technical sense, until 
he is a master of his profession. 

The idea of retaining Powell came to us from his article on film publicity 
which was published in the las: Phoioplaycrs Weekly. Suggesting, 
front an expert's standpoint, that the film industry in general was not giving 
the press up to date newspaper material, particularly in the matter of illu>* 
[rations, for their publicity, his article created considerable comment. Many 
demands have been made on us for appointments with him by those aeilkUtf 
further details, that we thought it best to make this arrangement. 

This service will cost -the Photoplayer"s Weekly a little money We feel, 
however, tha; the good he will be abU to do our subscribers in (he matter ol

"Edw 



Frazee who is directing a 

thrilling Keystone feature under the 

supervision of Mack Sennctt for the 
Triangle program, is exhausting every 
known source for startling thrills and 
surprises in motion pictures. Rail- 
road wrecks, trolley car collisions, 
racing automobiles pursued by speed- 
ing motorcycles, high voltage elec- 
trical lines, stolen safes, nitro-glycc- 
rine explosions, snakes, escaped wild 
beasts, etc., are all included in the 
story. Recently two giant locomo- 
tives were run together head-on near 
San Bernardino, especially for this 
production. A few days later several 
members of the company, including a 
cameraman, were loaded into a full 
'sized modern city street car, the 
power was switched on and the car 
started toward the edge of a cliff' on 
the Palisades at Santa Monica. The 
camera registered the actions of the 
frightened passengers until within a 
lew feet of the edge, when alt on 
board jumped and lite car keeled 
over the top of the elifi for a sheer 
drop of 200 feet. Five cameras on 
the rocks below caught the jugger- 
naut on its way through space and

No expense Is spared by Mack Sen-

screen in the New York Studio upon 
running a comedy which had been 
made at the Santa Monica Studios of 
the Kalem Company, those reviewing 
tlic picture felt this gladsome and 
wholesome personality of Mi S j Tcare, 
and engaged her fur leads for their 
comedy company, and she is still

hold all the sunshine of Hie world in 
it, and a laugh which is just as relia- 
ble during the storm tossed days as 
in the sunny ones, 

"It really doesn't mailer." she told

point lhal I think Miss Tcire real- 
ized iliat what she said "would he

self having to ask ihc usual questions 
which go lo make u(i every interview, 
hut which somehow didn't seem lo be 
adequate for tail Kttsfon. I wanted 
instead 10 talk about toe new chintzes, 
and asked Miss T.-.lrc if she had 
painted all the room, or jtlll the floor, 

and many other inlrresling little fur- 
nishing questions, hut the paint had 
been stood in Ihe corner and Miss 
Tearc was quaintly ready for Ihc 

"How long have you been in pic- 
tures. Miss Tcare." I asked, and stain 
her laugh rippled ihrough the room, 
ns. she answered-; 

"Well, about two years in all; and 
all of ihe two years with the Kalem 
Company, 1 w^s first at the Santa 
Monica Studio and played lead* for 
ahoui four months, when I came to 
this, the Hollywood Studios, and have 
been playing here ever since. For 
almost the past year I hive been play- 
ing opposite Mr. I.lovd V, Hamilton. 

and lallerly in HAM COMEDIES: 
and I love the work! It's just like 
one big family here, and we enjoy 
the work so much, and »nu Inmj 
when one is happy in their work it 
helps so much; don't ynii think so?'" 
I did think so indeed, and as 1 
talked with M!ss Tcare 1 realized 
just why she found everyone so con- 

pi-nial and happy to her. Like at- 
tracts like, and Miss Tcare wilh her 
ready smile and spirit of joy could 



she was 1-i yean old, in stock com* 
panics, later playing vaudeville on 

tin- Orpfaflum nine with B. A. Rolfe's 

act, "College (iirls." Then followed 
her work in Mort Singer's show* in 
Chicago, and later with Dave Lewi* 
in "Don't Lie lo Your Wife." Miss 
Tcare will also be remembered in a 
very dainty and pretty sister act 
which she and her sister traveled in 
out of Chicago on Western Vaude- 
ville Time, which m her last stage 
work before joining the Kalem Com- 
pany. 

During the time Miss Teare has 
been in picture* she has become loved 
by many. Always a dainty and cheer, 
ful partner of grotesque "Ham" and 
the diminutive "Bud," she shares 
their many trials, and is generally the 
object of their choice, which con- 
stantly results disastrously for both 
suitors. Her personality, which re- 
freshes and gladdens c-ne at once up- 
on meeting Miss Tearc, has captivat- 
ed tile hi-arls of screen patrons, and 
those who follow her work and are 
fond of her, 1 wish could hear that 
simshiney bugh as I did and they 
would he captivated. 

Sterling in character, Miss Teare 
makes lier home with her parents and 
•isier, and her devotion 10 her fam- 
ily is something that adds lo an al- 
ready lovable disposition. Not only 

those who are her nearest receive 
from her kindness, but there arc many 
who know just how this girl can be 
gentle and kind, and belter than either 
give them assistance which is the best 

in the world — -the assistance and ad- 
vice which helps them help them* 

"1 like being in comedy," declared 
Mi" Tcare, "because one has the op- 
portunity to make others happy, if 
only for a little while, during the re- 
viewing of the picture, which after all 
is a great deal, for if people will only 
he happy for a little while, the little 
whiles will soon grow into big whiles, 
the big whiles into the all-time— for 

happiness Vx-long* to each of US, but 
ive ran only find it within ourselves, 
and if anyone can help another realize 
this fart, then it is— well— happiness 
for that one." And we add if you can 
keep them smiling all the lime, tl at is 
Comedy, which this happy family of 

"HAM COMEDIES" is achieving at 
the Kalem Studios.

MORE ARRIVALS 



And still they come. The arrival recently of W. R. Sheehan, general man- 
ager of the Fox Film Company, together with William Farnurn, Dorothy Ber- 
ii.iT.l and a company of some twenty players, adds one more name to the list 
of great motion picture inicrcsts now Operating in and near this city. 

This merely adds to our side of the argument that Los Angeles is the 
superior film center, and when representative interests, such as the Fox peo- 
ple, reluctant lo leave New York, at last come to this city, we can rest assured 
that wc arc or the right track for continued growth. 

The Fox Film Company is one of the oldest and most reliable of motion 
picture organizations. When the great movement to come to Los Angeles and 
cnviionmcnts developed among producers, the Fox interests were among the 
last to heed the call, The old Edcndalc studios have been taken over and 
some $IS,O0O will he spent immediately on improvements. Los Angeles is now 
one of the fotu cities in which William Fox ha* studios.

"CHEATING" NEWS STORIES 

THAT "LAND" IN PAPERS 

Service Division Draws Lin* of Dif- 
ference Between "Advance" Notices 
and •%m" News— Baae Publi- 
city on Actual Facta 

A veteran theatrical manager was 
breaking a cub writer into the busi- 
ness of press agency. "The least 
important part of your work," lie re- 
marked, "arc the theatrical advance 

The youngsttr- raised his eyebrows 
in surprise. "Why, I thought the ad- 
vance notices were just about nine- 
tenths of my job." 

"So they may be as far as quantity 
it concerned." replied the manager. 
"But the news in the non-theatrical 
part of the paper is what generally 
attracts the bigger part of the busi- 
ness. Land in the news columns as 
often as you can, and you will be a 
good press agent." 

This advise, intended for old-time 
"legitimate" attractions, is almost 
equally applicable to motion picture 
houses. The live exhibitor will "see" 
the news of his house atvd his attrac- 
tions and will convey it to the news- 
papers expeditiously and in bright, 
newsy form. The cardinal principle 
of writing a news Story is to put the 
most important facts or the summary 
of the en|Ere story in the first para- 
graph — even in the first sentence if 
possible. Adjectives are not wanted. 
Facts should be stated simply and 
Clearly. Brevity is the soul of wit,

"the story in production is the acid test

' In view of the fact that many of the

"SCREEN COMEDY" 

•(Continued from page 1, second section) 

A few years ago an audience would burst into a. panic of laughter 
'when -one screen actor kicked another imidship and overthrew his 
equilbrium. Nothing relative (o the kick was necessary either l>efi>rc 
or after the act. Today there must be a rcason'for the kick — a logical 
sequence of events must precede and follow it, In the early days of 
films a disconnected series of events was sufficient, nowadays a story 
with a carefully built plot must underlie every action that is photo- 
graphed, You may equip a producer with a company of clever panto- 
mimists, housed in a modern and complete studio; give him a perfect 
camera and a skillful operator, but if he has no story he is helplesa 
and all his talent and paraphernalia is as useless as an automobile 
without an engine. Now and henceforth the survival of the motion 
picture as a popular diversion lies in the hands of the efficient, 
thoughtful producer. All the obvious things have been done in com- 
riionplace'ways. Now we must find now things to do or do the old 
ones in new Ways. It was the stagnant condition of the speaking 
stage that made its conquest by the picture screen an easy one and .to 
escape this fate, the screen must in turn avoid stagnation. There is 
no such possibility at present, for the best brains in the amusement 
business are busy in the picture producing game. The biggest com- 
edy and dramatic stars are" working in pictures, under the guidance 
of the most capable directors. 

In the dramatic field the productions at present consist of a 
large percentage of adaptations from old plays and stories. This is 
to a great extent impossible with comedy. 

The average written or spoken drama is bu-ilt up.m a plot which 
offers unlimited opportunities, whereas the- average spoken or written 
Comedy is based on word play and IS not readily adaptable to screen 
use, therefore a greater amount of originality is required in the pro- 
duction of comedy films than of dramatic subjects. 

Among free-lance writers the quantity of wasted effort if prop- 
erly directed would result in mutual benefit to the' writer and pro- 
ducer. We receive from fifty to a hundred scenarios per day at the 
Keystone studio and vet out of all this mass of endeavor 1 have not 
purchased a manuscript irt over two years. The majority "f these 
stories arc carefully typewritten, in perfect scenario form, on the best 
of paper, and have everything in their favor, except the one requisite 
— ideas; and this lack of ideas is based on lack of Study and observa- 
tion. It is almost incomprehensible that any man or woman of ordi- 
nary intelligence who has witnessed five good screen comedies should 
submit for approval some of the vacuous inanities that we daily re- 
ceive. We are in the market for scenarios at all times and the fact 
that we have not purchased one in two years is merely a result of the 
fact that we have not received one of a purchasable nature. This 
statement need not discourage any ambitious writer. On the contrary. 
it should supply motive for further and greater effort. The idea 
which seems to be prevalent among many would-be writers, .that 
comedy construction is a frivolous occupation, requiring little or no 
effort, is sadly erroneous. Of all branches of literary construction, 
comedy is positively the most difficult, it requires hard anil constant 
study and mental labor. A comedy scenario satisfactory for produc- 
tion must contain a carefully evolved plot with a scries of complica- 
tions which work up to a big melodramatic climax, with the elements 
of suspense and fear predominant. All comedy is based upon mis- 
fortune. It sounds a -little paradoxical at first thought, but it remains 
a fact. When a fat acquaintance, whose equilibrium is the fir;!, req- 
uisite of physical safety, unknowingly steps upon the slippery skin of 
a banana, do we wince in sympathy for the sudden pain that results 
from his downfall? Never in the world! We chuckle with uncon- 
trolled merriment. When a good friend in a new black broadcloth 
suit sits upon a sheet oj flypaper, do we weep with him in mnrtifiiea- 
tion and humiliation? Not a bit of it. Wc laugh! There is no 
malice in such laughter — it seems to be a human trait that cannot be 
avoided and so the funniest comedies have for their basis misfortune, 
pain, fear and suspense. AH these must be handled carefully, how- 
ever, For the space between humor and pathos is narrow indeed, and 
to overstep the line lands one in the midst of a sickening quality ol 
pathos and the effort is wasted.

MORELAND MOTOR TRUCK- 
CALIFORNIA MADE AMD 
FOUNDATION EOR A GI- 

" G ANTIC 'ENTERPRISE 

Wonderful Guifier oi . Inventive Gen- 
ius Gives to . Transportation Eco- 
nomical and Sturdy Machine — In- 
dustry Fostered by Home Dollars 
and Brains, . 

Watt L. Moreland, inventor of the 
Mor eland Gasificr and the man re- 
sponsible for the big Moreland indus- 
try, is a self-adopted California!! — a 
man who believes in the future of the 
Pacific Coast. Being an engineer 1 of 
marked ability, it is not strange thai 
he had an idea. It kept him awake 
nights. My! how that idea has grown. 
Because of his restless, progressive 
spirit, 'California has gained a big in- 
dustry that keeps on growing. 

The Moreland trucks seen on the 
streets of many western cities, as well 
as Mexican, Australian and South 
American points, are the outcome of 
Watt MoreLand's active, ingenious 
brain. 

Moreland's Gasifier gave to the auto 
truck: cheap fuel. In it is used No. 1 
engine distillate, 3 fuel saving of 5Q 
per cent. It is (he only truck on the 
market that is economically operated, 
and it is entirely a California, prod- 
uct. 

Four years ago Wstt L, Moreland 
demonstrated that capital can always 
be found for a new venture, provided.*, 
one has a progressive spirit, self-con- i 
fiilcn-cc, a worth-while project and . 
faith in its future. The crystallization 



of hti ntou Into working plana h*i 
developed, from i start with a work- 
ing force of 25 men. Into the big 

Moreland Motor Trade factory at Los 
Angeles, which now employ* ISO 
men, .h» a pay roil of J40.OO0 month- 
ly, and a capacity of 125 truck* per 
month, having doubled its ipacc three 
times in the short time mentioned. 

The Moreland Motor Truck Com- 
pany is capitalized for $300,000, and 
is a close corporation. R. IT. Ra- 
phael, of H. Raphael Co. and the 
Southern California Hardwood & 
Mfg. Co., is president of the com- 
pany: C. J. .Kubach. of C. J. Kubach 
Co., contractors, is vice-president; J. 
L, Armer, secretary-treasurer; and 
Watt L. Moreland, general manager. 

Sates and service branches arc 
maintained by the company in San 
Friuicistb, Oakland, Sacramento and 
*San Diego, and are about to be estab- 
lished at all coast centers. Many 
shipments have been made to Aus- 
tralia, and the company contemplates 
branches at Sydney and Melbourne. 1 
Sales have also been made in Mex- 
ico. Central and Southern America. 

A recent shipment of eight'dist.llate 
trucks by the Moreland Company 
created more than ordinary interest 
because of its being the largest ship- 
ment of a similar character ever made 
from a Pacific Coast factory. 



HERE'S THE $1,000,000 GIRL 




BOSWORTH'S BEST WORK 
Word received from Hobart Bos- 
worth from Tenipc, Arii., indicates 
the securing of unusually good loca- 
tions ior their production of Dane 
Coolidgc's story, "The Yag.ii.," Since 

Bosworth's joining the Universal 

forces at their Pacific Coast studios, 
he has staged and appeared in many 
successful multiple reel features, hut 
none of them thus far produced has 
had the magnitude of the present pro- 
duction.

Carrie Clark Ward, with the Na-

styled the Female John Bunny, and 
well does she deserve it. 

Carpenters, bricklayers, painters 
and an army of workers- are busy 
rounding the Log Angeles studio of 
the National Film Corporation into 
shape for ihe coming of the four new 
companies which will begin to make 
pictures for the new Kritcrion pro-

Pauline Bush, wife of Allan Dwann, 

is now enjoying a vacation in New 
York with her husband -director, who 
is working on a Triangle' feature in 
the eastern studios. Pauline Bush, it 
will be remembered, has played with 
the Universal Company for the past 
two years. She may assist her hus- 
band in one or two features during 
her eastern visit.

"DOINGS AT THE NATIONAL 
STUDIO" 

Carrie Clark Ward, who will be re- 
memhered as ihe clever character 
woman in the old Majestic Stock 
company of Los Angeles, and who 
was affiliated with Oliver Moro-.ro fur 
several years, is the latest acquisition 
to the splendid company under the 
direction of Albert W. Hale, at the 
National Film Corporation studios in 
Los Angeles. Incidentally, Miss 
Ward made her first screen appear- 
ance under her present director, A.

The three principals in one of the 
best known of the Biograph producing 
companies this week joined the Uni-

studios. The company consists of 
Travers Vale, director; Franklin 
Ritchie and Louise Vale, his two 
leads. - I ,

"The 



: the 



s come to gi' 
ture army a swift and statistical review. Fig- 
ures soothe, the minds of the mathematically 
inclined, and these here presented 'were" not 
compiled by a press agent. They come from 
a thoroughly dependable soitrcf, *nd under- 
shoot rather than overshoot the Mark. FiFst, 
how large is this army?^-. 

There are, in Los Aneeies and vicinity, ap- 
proximately twenty producing companies or 
studios, as thev are called, and this figure takes 
no note of the flv-by-nighters or the shoestring 
players — let us say twenty established plants. 

These plants employ directors, and each di- 
rector has a stock company under him. At a 
conservative estimate, 120 directors work the 
year round, handling 120 stock companies, and 
-a stock company will average ten men and 
women regularly employed "and on the pay 
rolls whether they work or~not. Then there 
are the extra people employed by the picture 
or by the day — twenty for each production is a 
fair average. This gives a total of 3,600 men 
and. women who make their living by acting. 
Add the producing staff, _the studio, office, cam- 
era and factory employes and you nearly dou- 
ble this number — to be on the safe side, let us 
place the strength of the army at 6,000 souls. 
Now, as to dollars and cents : 

About half 6f"thesF*directDrrare - Tnaking- 
what they call "regular program releases" — 
the one-reelers and two-reelers. The others 
are the headliners of the film world ; they make 
the "multiple reel features." 

The average regular program release com- 
pany operates at a cost, let us say, of $1,000 a 
•week. This includes all salaries and operating 
exrteoses. The feature productions require a 
■ more generous outlay, and $2,000 a week is a 
modest average. By the year the 120 directors 
spend the tidy little total of $9,360,000. 

We must not forget the stars, specially en- 
gaged for these feature productions. They 
come higRwft tfie way from "$500 to $3,000 a 
week. - Srxfy-" stars,, say /at an average m $1,-006 
apiece — and your grand total now stands at 
$12,480,000 per annum.. 



Take into consideration the- amount of money 
spent in building studios and making perma- 
nent improvements in property and your low- 
est possible total will be $15,000,000. 'The bulk 
of this money is placed in circulation in Los 
Angeles, actors being among our best-known 
coin circulators. 

Fifteen millions! Is it any wonder that they 
talk of the golden sunshine? Los Angeles has 
capitalized her climate in a number of ways, 
but never has she found another income of this 
size without a cent of outlay." — Chas. E. Van 
Loan, in Collier's Weekly, December 18, 1915. 



■"THE official 'historian of the movies" is 

authority for the statement that $15,000,000 .-( 
is the amount involved in' the annual produc- 
tion of motion pictures in Los Angeles. This 
vast sum is distributed among thousands of 
people, who in turn spend it in countless ways.

*■* is earning interest? This bank 
suggests that every person in any way 

affiliated with the motion picture indus- 
try should open a Term Savings Ac- 
count at this batik and thereafter save 
some part of every salary check. This 
form of deposit- earns 4 per cent inter*

may be opened- with as little as $1.

PERSEVERING POLLY 

Less than a year ago, Polly Moran, 
one of Mack Bennett's Keystone 
comediennes, cancelled a vaudeville 
engagement in South Africa and 
started for Los Angeles where she 
mil to commence work in the famous 
comedy studios. In the short space 
of a few months she has made the 
long- trip, appeared in seven releases, 
bought a home and an automobile 
and has settled down to enjoy life 
with her father and mother. Miss 
Moran was a favorite with vaudeville 
1 audiences alt over the world previous 
to going into pictures and is willing 
to admit that white her stage experi- 
ence helps her in her work to a small 
degree, there are years of close study 
ahead of the successful motion pic- 
ture comedienne. In the healthy in- 
fancy of the Keystone Film Company 
three years ago, when her act hap- 
pened to be in Los Angeles, Miss 
Moran would spend her mornings at 
the studio "suping" in mob scenes 
with Mack Sennett, Mabel Normand. 
Fred Mace and Ford Sterling in the 
principal rotes, little realizing that 
some day she too would be in stock . 
in Ike same studio.

"his hand at moving pictures and spent 
six weeks at the Keystone studio after

other film- company only to return to 
"the former after a few months' ab- 
sence. His work as the polished eri- 
Jicer of Fred Mace's wifff fn. "A Jan-_ 
(tor's Wife's Temptation," a recent 
Triangle- Keys tone release, hears evi- 
dence of his ability to extract comedy 
even out of the unpopular character
