STORY OF SOUTH SEAS IS
"THE BONDED WOMAN"
(WJnnt to go to 'the South Sea
Nearly everybody does, since read
ing the books of Frederick O'Brien,
W. S. Maugham and others. Pat
rons of the Tip Top theater will
find themselves carried away to this
romantic region when they see Bet
ty Compson In "The Bonded Wo
man," her latest Paramount picture
which opens there on WedneBtluy,
In this offering the South Pa
cific archlpelego is shown at its
best with enough of its worst to
make the druma. Miss Compson as
Angela, goes to a dive In Honolulu
to rescue the man she loves. This
is a colorful scene, with dancing
girls, sailors and natives, and pic
tures of Hawaii as most people
fancy it. But fate and the girl's
wish, then remove the pair to a
barren island, where the denoue
ment takes place.
Miss Compson is supported ly a
very fine cast, including Richard
Dix, John Bowers, J. Farrell Mac
Donald, Ethel Wales, William Mor
an and others. "The Bonded Wo
man" is tased on a story by the
late John Fleming Wilson, which
was adapted to the screen by A.S.
LeVino. Philip E. Rosen directed,

MARY CARR SCORES
TRIUMPH AS MOTHER
IN "OVER THE HILL"
"Over the Hill," the Fox special
production that will be featured at
the Tip Top theater next Friday
and Saturday nights is one of the
simplest stories ever put in film
film. That is one reason why it is
great. But the chief reasons are that
it is true and that Mary Carr is
undoubtedly the greatest player of
mother roles known to the stage or
screen. She was the original "Mrs.
Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," but
never on the speaking stage has
she brought the fidelity to type or
wealth of pathos to her admirers
as in this rural gem based on the
famous poem by Will Carlton, "Over
the Hill to the Poorhouse."
The story is rural in locale. It
depicts the life of a mother and a
mother very like the mothers of
us all at that, from the time her
children are tots until forgotten by
them, all except one, she goes to
the poorhouse, realizing that she is
not welcome in their homes, that
they begrudge her the food she eats,
even the stiff bucked chair she oc
cupies wh n : he is not drudging
for them . P
If one has kepi his emotions well
in hand to this po.nl, he has done
Weil, but the succeeding scene where
the black sheep, back from the
West, where he has been bearing
his father's disgrace, "so that moth
er never shall know," gives the
most rascally of his brothers all
that is coining to him and brings
mother back to the rehabilitated
homestead, is guaranteed to be too
much for the most phlegmatic indi
vidual that ever breathed.
BRET HARTE STORY IS
ON FILM AT TIP TOP
According to Thomas Meighan,
who went with the Paramount com
pany to northern California to shoot
scenes in "If You Believe It, It's
So," Bret Harte, the celebrated nov
elist, must have lived in nearly
every house in every small town
in the early mining regions of Cali
fornia. "We had heard," said the star,
"that Harte lived and wrote in Jim
town, so I made some inquiries but
in those old mining villages of Cali
fornia, you discover that Bret Harte

his greatest novels in every house
dating from .'49.
