Geo. M. Cohan
As a play it was George M. Cohan's
greatest stage hit on Broadway. The
book circulated In every part of the
country and added to the wide pop
ularity of the subject. As a motion
picture it is presented as George
M.'s inital screen vehicle and disnlavs
a wealth of material that the stage
couia never snow.
"Broadway Jones" offers a delieht-
ful story of a young man tried of the
small village. A relative dies leav
ing him a fortune, and he gaily hies
himself to the glittering street of his
dreams. Broadway smiles and puts
a thousand greedy fingers into his
overflowing pockets. "Broke" and
deeply enmeshed in debt, he falls an
easy prey to an ancient lady, the
past-heroi,ne of many matrimonial ad
ventures, who offers her money in
exchange for his youth, wit and pop
He he is extricated from this amus
ing but very real dilemma and finally
wins the girl of his heart makes a
strong and absorbing subject for the
screen. In addition to this It pres
ents for the first time Just what thou
sands have been waiting for Cohan
ism In motion pictures at the Wai-
luku Orpheum Saturday.
"The Man From Painted Post"
Replete with the swift action and
thrills of a story dealing with the cat
tle rustling days of the West, to
gether with the most v beautiful of
natural scenic displays offered in the
picturesque Wyoming. Douglas Fair
banks latest Artcraft picture pres
ents the popular exponent of the smile
in a role quite different from any of
his previous screen efforts. As
"Fancy Jim" Sherwood, a supposed
"tenderfoot", Douglas cleans up a
famous gang of rustlers after many
This photoplay Is based on Jack
son Gregory's recent magazine story,
"Silver Slipper," and was adapted to
the screen by the versatile Douglas
himself. Staged at the Riverside
Ranch, near Laramine, Wyo., where
160,000 acres of land and 30,000 head
of cattle were placed at the disposal
of the photoplayers, this film presents
the true Western atmosphere of the
In a number of scenes displaying
the thrills of broncho-busting, roping
steers and other accomplishments of
the cowboy, appear the champions of
the recent Rodeo held at Cheyenne,
Wyo. In order to obtain the best
possible talent for these scenes,
Douglas Journeyed to Cheyenne and
signed up the winners for the Frontier
Day Celebration, Including such ex
perts as Sam Brownell, John Judd,
Tommy Grimes, H. A. Strickland, and
others of equal popularity among
Westerners. Never before has teh
energetic Douglas appeared in a pho
toplay that demands so much of his
versatility. Tense dramtic scenes
offset by lighter situations of the
typical Fairbanks variety are handled
with equal effectiveness by the star,
supported by such screen artists as
Frank Campean, Eileen Percy, Wil
liam Lowery and Rhea Haines. A
motion picture of rapid-fire action,
thrill, humor and exceptional scenic
qualities .this production is readily
conceded to be the best offering of
Douglas Fairbanks. At the Wailuku
Orpheum on Wednesday next.
Louise Glaum in
"Sweetheart of the Doomed"
Honore Zonlay, a beautiful advan
turess, becomes a volunteer nurse in
the French Army to be near her lover,
Paul Montaigne, and to atone in some
measure for her past life. The story
is intensely dramatic with the lurid
atmosphere of war for a background
but through which runs a delicate
thread of love and self-sacrifice.
