Douglas Fairbanks in His Latest
Success, "Reaching For The Moon"
"Reaching for the Moon" this Is
the latest as offered by Douglas Fair
banks, the prize winner of the screen
drama and the one whose perform
ances before the camera have done
more toward making an evening at
the theater "the end of perfect day"
than any other person whose aim in
this life is to provide entertainment
for the public. You may make one
exception Charlie Chaplin but
Charlie is in another line of comedy,
usually referred to as slapstick. Doug
never resorts to the slapstick. He
deals straight from the shoulder and
with very few exception delivers the
knock-out with every punch. He will
be seen on the screen of the Maui
theaters next week in his latest,
"Reaching for the Moon," written by
Anita Loos in collaboration with John
Emerson and produced for Artcraft
Pictures under the direction of Mr.
Emerson. In the supporting cast are
Richard Cummings, Millard Webb,
Eugene Ormonde, Frank Campeau
and Eileen Percy, the charming fem
inine character who has been seen
opposite Mr. Fairbanks in most of
his Artcraft pictures. Doug imper
sonates Alexis Caesar Napoleon
Brown, chief clerk in a button factory,
who is thoroughly convinced that he
is wasting his time in such menial
business when he can rule as king.
His best listener is Elsie who believes
in the powers of concentration, but
who devotes her concent rative en
ergies to more plausible and practi
cal ends than Alexis Caesar. Alexis
Caesar Is discharged in order that he
may carry out his plan of revolution
izing the affairs of state, and takes
an extended trip to Bulgaria where
he is crowned king. He wakes from
all this of a sudden and finds himself
on the floor of his room. He hurries
to the office and gets his job back,
sees Elsie and they concentrate and
decide that it is cheaper to live in
Jersey than New York.

Douglas Fairbanks in "Reaching for
Sheriff's Bride Leads Posse
To Save Husband
An Eastern girl, bride of the sher
iff of Wolfville, forms an attachment
for the new postmaster, a polished,
dapper Easterner, and in his distress
at not being able to hold the affection
of his wife, the brave sheriff deliber
ately seeks death that she may be
free to wed the postmaster.
He passes the lie to a gambler and
refuses to draw his gun, but friends
detecting his purpose prevent a kill
ing. Then single-handed he engages
an outlaw leader and falls over a cliff
to seeming certain death as the posse
he is leading is routed.
Filled with remorse and her latent
love for the brave officer fully awak
ened when the remnants of the posse
returns with word of his death and
that ho died to free her, the girl up
braids the men for fleeing and leaas
them back into the fight. The out
laws this time are defeated und Dead
Shot Baker, her sheriff husband, is
found wounded in a cabin at the foot
of the cliff holding off an attacking
party. She nurses him back to life
"Dead Shot Baker," the Greater
Vitagraph Blue Ribbon Feature, which
will be the attraction in the Wailuku
Orpheum theater on Sunday, is an
adaption of the famous Wolfville Tale
by that name and ia the first of a
series of such picturizations by Vit

their Western realism by screening
and are giving by Vitagraph screen

"The Rise Of Jennie Cushing"
Following her sensational motion
picture debut in "Barbary Sheep,"
Elsie Ferguson, the most talented
beauty of the spoken drama, again
appears on the screen in a famous
storv bv a Drominent author. "The
'Rise of Jennie Cushing" by Mary S.
Watts, author of "Nathan Burke,"
"Van Clove" and many other well
known works, is Miss Ferguson's
second motion picture vehicle under
the Artcraft banner.
As Jennie Cushing, a street waif
who is thrown upon her own resources
early in life. Miss Ferguson presents
u direct contrast to her appearance
in her previous film characterization
and displays a remarkable picturiza
tion even for the artistic Ferguson.
The story is one of deep heart in
fivst, developing int.o a stirring
romance that will linger long in the
memory of everyone who see It.
Staged under the direction of that
French producing genius, Maurice
Tourneur, who also produced "Bar
bary Sheep," Miss Ferguson's newest
cinema offers another photodrama of
modern technique, a film that will
accent the marked advance in the
photoplay of to-day over the motion
picture of yesterday.
Never either on the stage or screen
has Miss Ferguson been accorded a
greater chance to disclose her wond
erful artistry and never before has
she responded more effectively to a
geat opportunity. Supported by an
exceptional cast nnd produced by a
master-director, this newest adapta
tion of a popular book should estab
lish a new standard for the highest
in moiion picture quality.
Dorothy Dalton Is Fascinating
Widow In New Triangle Play
The latest Triangle play, "Wild
Winship's Widow," by John T.ynch,
in which Thomas H. Ince will pres
ent Dorothy Dalton as star, is a
; comedy of manners and of good
i clothes. The story is enacted in a
fashionable southern resort where n
few old mansions of the first families
of Virginia stand in the background
and lend dignity and tone to the func
tions at the great hotel of the place.
Miss Dalton's part is that of a
young and beautiful widow, who has
I placed the memory of an unworthy

amount of enjoyment out of her

her attempts to prove that she is
still young and attractive eno'igh to
get p ;:l zest out of lite and to .in the
admiration of the masculine sex. The
result is that she gets more devotion
than she really cares for and has to
resort to certain very feminine wiles
in i Atic.iie herself I'rem the demands
of her suitors.-
