HERE FOR SEASON
Full announcement is made on
another page of the appearance
of the famous Mary Pickford ser
ies, "Behind The Scenes," on
Kauai, the pictmes to be started
tonight at Ker.lia and to be shown
at other places on the island. This
scries had an immense run in Ho
nolulu, drawing packed houses
every night. Following is the
sory of "Behind The Scenes."
"Behind The Scenes" is a play
of playfolks. It is a most fascina
ting plav. contrasting the drama
of life with the glamour of the
.footlights and in the role of Dolly
Lane, Mary Pickford renders the
best characterization of any she
Dolly Lane is a musical comedy
soubrette who is wooed and won
by Steve Hunter. She continues
with her stage career even afte
her marriagt and proves so suc
cessful that she is chosen, when
an accident happens to the leading
woman, to fill that important part.
She scores a triumph as the star of
the play. Steve inherits a large
fortune, induces Dolly to forswear
the stage and to journey away from
glittering Broadway to his inherit
ed acres in the West. Dolly only
gaye up her stage ambitinos after
a terrible struggle with herself and
due to her deep devotion to her
husband. However, the girl who
is used to the grease paint and
footlights soon wearies, of a life on
the big ranch, returns to the. city
and finds a wealthy man willing
to back her as the star in a new
plav. Again she scores success
but, without Steve to share the
snrress it turns to ashes in her
grasp. The night of the premier
of the new play the wealthy pro
ducer visits Dolly in her dreising
room and demands the price of
her triumph. Dolly, while des
perately playing for time, hears
Steve's voice. The manager hasti
ly gives the actress the kev to the
door which he has pocketed when
firsP entering, and conceals him
self. Steve quickly learns of the pre
sence in the room of the other man
and with a withering glance at
Dolly pulls the manager from his
hiding place and leaves.
Despairing and disillusioned Dol
ly resigns from the cast and takes
the first train west, in me gom
en harvest fields she again meets
Steve and tells him all. The past
is forgotten and the youthful lovers
