bouts with the instructor and before

Down To Earth"
"Down to Earth" is a comedy of
the kind that delights and entertains
for the moment and, in addition, puts
over a totality of effect which leaves
clear impression on the audience
mind. There is no dispersing of at
tention, as in a mere vehicle to dis
play a talented artist's favorite style.
perpexing spectators to follow tne
story none of that, but straignt ana
harmonious structural charm from
the outset to the end. In the course
of a single composition, while It
should follow a lead throughout, the
subordinate characters, as in "Down,
to Earth", should In themselves be
clean-cut in order to lead up to and
enforce a harmony of aim, If even
through contrast. This play is a well
woven nattern of very distinct
threads, an uniting In a broad har
mony of design.
It Is In a genuine dramatic composi
tion of this kind that Douglas Fair
banks really appears to best advant
age. His personality Is strong enough
to move swiftly without the crutches
of an infirm vehicle. He is In again
and out again without loss of contin
uity. while that of the story is smooth
ly preserved. In a chivalrous attempt
to rescue a lovely young girl from a
fake sanatorium, whose patients are
permitted to indulge their half-inv
aginary diseases, and, at the sifme
time, cure her of destructive habits
acquired in a life or seir-inauigence,
he purchases the good will and chen
tele of the place ana smuggles me
patients collectively abroad his yacht
to avoid a pretenaea smanpox quar
antine. He carries them all to a sup
posed desert isle, which is in reality
a Blice of heaaiann cui on irom civil
ization by inaccessible hills except
through a single pass, where he posts
a negro to impersonate a wua man.
On this supposed desert lsie, me
various types of neurotic and dyspep
tic natients. each a distinct type,
each rich enough to devote absorbed
attention to "symptoms", are put
throueh a rigorous course of training
beside their activities in providing tne
necessities of life. The result solves
a nrohlem of our race and our times,
but there is a pretty love story be
sides, and abundant comedy opport
unity for the subordinate roles, at
once a relief and an added charm. I
saw the story artistically presented
at the Rialto, with opportunity to
judge of its effect upon a critical
audience, and it was received by a
crowded house with enthusiasm.
At the Wailuku Orpheum Wednes
Marv Anderson and Antonio Moreno
in "The Magnificent Meddler"
The story of a breezy young report
er who tried to mould the destinies
of a frontier town and succeeded!
Monty Emerson, reporter, was one
of these impulsive, carefree youngs
tersJust a grown-up boy who
couldn't help meddling and the scope
of his operations was the universe.
The big thing with Monty was re
form, and his news stories aimed to
set the world in order. But tho ruin
ous libel suits that threatened the
paper as a result of Monty s meddling
made Monty a liability instead of an
asset, so Monty Just naturally meddl
ed himself out of his job.
Nothing daunted, he sought new
fields for his righteous endeavors.
With a little inheritance that had
come to him, and in company with
his pal. Bob Gill, a newspaper artist,
Monty bought a so-called newspaper,
"the leading and only publication" of
the town of Horizon, one of the last
outposts of the wrecked old frontier
Can you imagine what happened in
Horizon when Monty started to clean
up the place? Cow-punchers, Mexi
can bandits, dance hall proprietors
and border-town grafters are such
nice, amiable folks to reform!
But Monty meddled and so suc
cessfully that little Jess Roth, the
daughter of the worst grafter In town
saw the light and started to meddle
Then tako our word for it there
was some magnificent meddling! At
the Orpheum Sunday. Advt.
