AT THE THEATERS
BUI le Burke In
"Arms and the Girl"
"Arms and the Girl", the rnrnmount
picture starring wee winsome Bill'.o
Burke, follows rather closely tho
stage version of a few years rri
which met with unprecedented suc
cess on Broadway. Briefly, the plot
Is as follows: An American girl,
Ruth Sherwood, is stranded in Bel-
glum at tho opening of, the present
war, without money or friends, and
innocently exchanges passports with
a Russian girl a spy.
Another young American, Wilfred
Ferrers, also helps the Russian girl
hy the loan of his automohile. When
the Germans seize the town, the
young man is arrested and' sentenced
to be shot for helping a spy. "The
Girl," however, saves him by declar
ing him to be her fiance, for whom
she has been waiting.
As if doubtful of this and wishing
to prove the truth of her statement,
the German general orders them to
be married at once and the two young
people find themselves in a most em
barrassing and somewhat amusing
The husband escapes, however,
while in the meantime the real fiance
appears and, on learning of the situa
tion, proves himself to be something
of a coward and a cad. Ruth, dis
covering that she does not love him,
is overjoyed with Wilfred, now her
husband, is saved, and the two resolve
not to annul the ceremony which had
brought them together.
Miss Burke is at her best in this
production, which was directed by
Joseph Kaufman, one of the most
celebrated directors of fllmdom, and
in which the cast is extremely well
chosen, including two members of the
original stage version, George S.
Trimble and Malcolm Dunn, at the
Wailuku Orpheum next Saturday.
"The Narrow Trail"
Never on the screen, stage or can
vas has there been recorded a West
ern character of such powerful ap
peal as the portrait of Ice Harding, a
typical "bad man" of the plains,
painted by William S. Hart in his
newest photoplay, "The Narrow
Trail." Popular "Bill" Hart has pre
sented many stirring portrayals de
picting famous types of the groat
West in its palmy days, but in his
latest picture he easily outshines
even his own splendid picturizations
of tho past which have resulted in
making him one of the very foremost
actors in the hearts of the motion
Ice Harding is a typical bandit, an
outlaw whose daring has made him
tho terror of several states. Yet de
spite his black record he is a man
with a human side, a bandit who
knows no fear but a man who stands
by his friends until they prove them
selves unworthy, a gentleman at all
times as far as the ladies are con
cerned and a horseman whose pony
considers him its best pal in the world.
Into the life of this outlaw comes a
beautiful girl, his ideal of all that is
good and pure. After the greatest
fight he has ever experienced a
battle with himself he gives up his
following and hunts up the girl to
start life anew. Suddenly, his ideals
strangled through a horrible revela
tion, be believes himself .misled and
his new faith in the good side of life
is shattered. Through the scenes
which depict these evolutions in the
carrer of this man of the prairie Wil
liam S. Hart travels with a realism
that will mark him as a much greater
actor thanevenhismany thousands of
ardent admirers proclaim him to be.
Whether it be in the fierce hand-to
hand encounter in which he is at
tacked by two toughs; in the thrill-
nng horse race in which ho outdis
stances all his opponents while thou
sands in the grandstand gasp in
amazement at the unheralded entry
and the sheriff awaits him at the end
of the race, or whether he appears in
a scene with his beloved horse which
plays upon tho heart strings, "Bill"
Hart drives home the force of the

Starts Revolution When Girl
Is Forcibly Held by Foe
The most realistic revolution ever
fought out on screens is one of the
dramatic scenes In "Soldiers of
Chance," the Greater Vitagraph Blue
Ribbon Feature, now appearing in the
Wailuku theater for next Sunday.
There are soldiers galore and a real
palace about which the battle rages
until the federal troops are driven

Charley Chaplain in
"Behind the Screen"
In his new picture which bears the
title, "Behind the Screen," Chaplin
is the central figure of interest in
series of extraordinary happenings
that occur in a moving pic ceum-
lishment. lf this production Chap
