THE MAUI NEWS, I-RIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1918.
AT THE THEATERS
"Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm," is
a picture for children and grown-ups
as well. Mary Pickford as Rebecca
has one of the best roles in which she
has ever appeared and laughs her
way into the hearts of all. Kate
Douglas Wiggin's story has been uni
versally read, but in the screen ver
sion of the book It has been possible
to bring out more fully the lovable
character of Rebecca.
In the severe New England village
wnere Rebecca goes to live with her
two aunts, lives the Simpson family.
As Rebecca quaintly puts, "Mrs. Simp
son Is not popular because she
doesn't wear any Jewelry," the jewel
ry In this case being the absence of
a wedding ring. Her first effort in
behalf of the Simpsons is to present
them with a "banquet lamp", procur
ed through the agency ol soap wrap
pers. It is on one of her trips taking
soap orders with her Inseparable com
panion, Emma Jane Perkins, played
by clever Marjorie Daw, that she
meets Adam Ladd, who Is quite un
spoiled even if he has acquired a deal
of the world's goods. Quick to ap
preciate the fine sense of humor of
little Rebecca they become fast
friends and after Rebecca grows up
he reminds her of the fact that she
once told him "she was going to
marry him when she grew up."
Orpheum Wailuku Wednesday 27th.
No more attractive vehicle could
have been selected for the motion pic
ture debut of Elsie Ferguson, famous
beauty of the speaking stage, than
Robert Hlchen's romantic drama of
Algeria, "Barbary Sheep."
The leading role, that of the young
and lovely wife of a middle-aged
Englishman, who leaves her to. her
self while he indulges a passion for
big game hunting, might have been
written especially for the noted star
of the speaking stage who has finally
heeded the call of the camera.
Into her life, while the couple are
stopping at an inn in Algeria, there
comes an Arabian officer of Spahis
the picturesque native cavalry of that
old-world land. She is fascinated by
him he pursues her with the ardor
and nassion of his dark-skinned race
There are moonlit evenings in the
silent desert, when the Arab woos
Sir Claude's bride, while Sir Claude
is far in the hills, hunting Barbary
sheep. Tragedy finally comes but
not to Lady Wyverne, nor even to Sir
Claude. A hand out of the past
clutches the Spahi's throat just as his
newest victim seems within his grasp,
"Little Mist Ontlmist"
One of the most spontaneous and
thrilling fights ever seen on the
screen takes place in the Paramount
production of "Little Miss Optimist,"
which will be seen at the Wailuku
Orpheum on Tuesday of next week.
The conflict is between Ernest Joy,
Charles West and Charles Gerard in
a darkened room. Director Thornby
secured the effect without any practice
simply telling the men to go ahead
and fight, telling each one secretly,
that his opponent was supposed to be
a German spy. That his instructions
were enthusiastically followed will
be seen by all who witness the pro
duction, which abounds in other in
cidents of interest.
"The Silent Lie"
"The Silent Life", with Miriam
Cooper, a new Fox star, in the lead
ing role. The production was brought
out under the direction of R. A.
Walsh, who was responsible for the
picture held to be Fox's master drama,
"The Honor System."
The narrative unfolded in "The Sil
ent Life" has its settings in the open
space of the great northwest and the
theme is built around the struggles of
a woman, against the overpowering
wrath and resentment of her own
father, who has detested her almost
from birth because of her mother's
unfaithfulness. The girl of the story,
left to die in the snow, is rescued by
a trapper who becomes her husband,
and then through the agency of the
father apparently discovers that her
earlier life has not been without
blemish. In a series of scenes filled
with tense action which holds the in
terest at high pitch the trapper re
turns just in time to save the wife
he has left from a fearful fate.

Charles Ray as co-stars. "Back of the
Man," tells the story of a raw country
youth, the butt of an office staff in a
big city, who wins the symapthy of
a young girl stenographer in the of
fice. In time the' country youth be

company and when he seeks to wed
the stenographer who has befriended
him he is brought face to face with
a tragic situation that is thrust upon
him. Events culminate in a great cli
max with the ultimate union of the
"The Purple Lady"
"The Purple Lady" presents a most
novel contrast. It introducers into a
gay and giddy tango, parlor members
of the Unlift Society who have set
about to reform the whole world,
Thus "Uncle Silas" Gllworthy meets
the dashing Fifi Melotte, but Instead
of being shocked he is enchanted
He comes to pray, but remain to
dance the tango. He and Flfl are
led through a series of ludicrous situa
tions in the developments of the story
and the climax only brings a new sur
prise. Comedy as well as thrilling
situations abound in the production,
