O "THE WORLD'S CHAMPION"
Irt spite of the fact that Wally
is scarcely the type for this role
and. gets few acting opportunities.
"The Word's Champion," an adapta
tion' of the stage play, "The Cham
pion," in which Grant Mitchell ap-
peared last season, will probaly be
callfed first class entertainment by
the fans, especially the female of
The reason for this Is that the
picture Is constructed from fire
material and relates a story that
appeals to Americans of all ages
and; regardless of sex.
There Is an overbearing and stuck
up i English nobleman as a vlllian,
more snobbish Englishers to be tak
en down a peg, a pretty, poor Eng
lish! heroine who is a regular fel
low and an erstwhile English young
cub who became an American citi
zen; and a prize ring champion.
Then, In developing the story no
opportunities are lost to stimulate
our traditional antagonism for caste,
lords, ladies, aristocracy and snob
bishness. There is even a little flag
Wally's role presents him as the
youngest 'son of an English boun
der who gets In dutch with his pa-
ter, is licked by his rival for the
hand -of a fair young lady and fin
ally cmigartes to America. The story
revolves around him. but several of
the cast have better parts, and one
at least, William J. Ferguson as the
butler, makes his role stand out to
better advantage by clever acting.
Lois Wilson is the heroine and is
really entitled to co-starring hon
ors, "THE CRIMSON CHALLENGE"
It. will surprise a lot of people to
see Dorothy Dalton playing the Bill
Hart, Tom Mix type of role. Gone
are the honkey-tonk days for the
0 time being. Instead you notice her
versatile talent in a new direction.
The star, attired in regular he-man
breeches, sweater and top piece and
with two lead pumpers girdled bout
her waist line, and astride a spirit
ed bronc makes a picture which will
bring her increasing popularity. Miss
Dalton possesses such a positive per
sonality that the role of heroine Is
easy for her. A fighting she-woman.
"The Crimson Challenge" Is an
adaptation of Vingie Roe's novel,
"Tharon of Lost Valley," a weBtcrn
story that Is a trifle removed from
the well beaten path. Scenlcally it is
one of the finest pictures seen .. in
many a day. There are some shots
that resemble master pieces of the
artist's brush. Paul Powell presided
at the megaphone and to him must
be given credit for putting the big
scenes over with real punch. Beulah
Marie Dlx has worked the plot into
a swift-running, closely connected
story. The production abounds in
big moments. There are some fine
cattle rustling scenes Interspersed
with a few stirring horse races. The
star's climb Into the clouds up a
mountain side to rescue the hero,
her several meetings with the- vll
lian and her final killing of the man
who shot her father in the back
these are episodes which pack first
rate action and suspense.

"A GAME CHICKEN"
A snappy title, a colorful line of
incident, carrying first rate comedy
spirit, and a star who fits the story
as if it were written with her in
mind make "A Game Chicken" pleas
ing entertainment for most any kind
of patron. The sponsors have inject
ed some good red pepper which pro
vides a piquant dressing for the
action, and coupled with this there
. is revealed an appropriate back
ground. Furthermore the story id a
timely one since it concerns rum
running or smuggling. The theme
Is established on an old foundation.
It revolves around a conflict be
tween love and duty love of the
heroine for the government agent
determined to stop the rum-run

which places Miss Daniels in an at- '
tractive light. She is the irrespon
sible tomboy again one who takes
particular delight in teasing her
father. The heroine is of Spanish
caste and the agent happens along
when trouble is brewing over a
cock fight which is attended by the
young, senorita. The star appears in
masculine attire and gets away
with It. A jealous admirer bobs up
to heap hot coals ' on the conflict.
He tells her that the agent is a
hired spy to trap her father. This
sounds plausible to her and she
scorns her new found lover.
The situation develops into a
snappy climax when the girl and
the agent are carried out to sea by
the rum-runners. The sweethearts
make thelr( escape in a thrilling
