Douglas Fairbanks in
"A Modern Musketeer"
Douglas Fairbanks opened, tne new
Rlvoli theater on Broadway, New
York, Christmas week with his latest
work for the screen, "A Modern
Musketeer." S. L. Rothapfel, direc
tor general of the Rialto and or tne
new theater, the Rivoll, thought well
enough of the picture to open what
is without a doubt, the most moaern
up-to-date theater in the world. The
management of the Wailuku Orpheum
has secured Mr. Fairbanks' latest
work for his theater and he extenas
to you an invitation to see this picture
The Modern Musketeer" is pronoun
ed by critics and the press of the
country to be the best work of Fair
banks. It was written and produced
under the direction of Allan Dwan,
who has succeeded John Emerson as
Mr. Fairbanks's director. The Idea
was obtained from Alexander Du
mas famous novel, "ine inrw
Musketeer." The far-famed "Dour
Is the dashing, romantic Musketeer,
and is given opportunities to perform
the stunts and thrillers for which he
has become famous. In his support
ing cast is seen Mariorie Daw, Gerald'
Ine Farrar's protege. Miss Daw has
the principal feminine role. Kathleen
Klrkham, Frank Campeau, Eugene
Ormonde and Tully Marshall are seen
in strong roles. Many of the scenes
were taken in the Grand Canyon of
Arizona, and the work of the star as
he hangs from lofty heights more
than 6.000 feet above sea level. Mr.
Fairbanks climbs up a rope suspend
ed to the peak of a cliff with Miss
Daw' hanging to his neck. This feat
of the star is alone well worth com
ing miles to see. A pretty romance
runs through the five reels and thrill
ers are combined with cleverly done
drama. It is the best work that Fair
banks has done under the Artcraft
banner and will stand as an example
of property done screen work.
Douglas Fairbanks will be seen on
the screen of the Wailuku Orpheum
on Wednesday of next week In "A
Modern Musketeer," written and dl
rected by his new director, Allan
Dwan. Marjorie Daw is in the lead
ing feminie role. Advt.
