"Spirit of the Ages"
Also David Belasco
By Harriette Underhill
The Spirit of the Ages had ordered
tea for herself, although she insisted
on our having chocolate. "It's good
for one," she said.
"Then why isn't it good for twoT"
"Fattening," she answered, with
finality. The Spirit of the Ages taated
her tea and added another lump. It's
funny how prohibition makes you want
a thing! It wasn't until they began to
serve one lump of sugar that I want?
"Yes. and I'm sure no one ever
thought of wanting a cocktail before
dinner until some one said we shouldn't
"You're a humorist, aren't you?" re
torted the Spirit of the Ages.
If you haven't seen "The Gold Dig
gers" you may not know that the Spirit
of the' Ages is Jobyna Howland. She
complains bitterly because she is so
tall that she never is east for any
thing but the League of Nations or the
Statue of Liberty. She is rehearsing
her new part for "Sweetie" and, seiz
ing a large vase, she walks down
stage with it held aloft, announcing:
"I am the Spirit of the Ages. I got
another line now, Sweetie, but I for
When we arrived, not more than two
minutes late for our appointment with
Miss Howland, we found the Spirit of
the Ages pacing up and down in front
"I always exercise while I'm wait
ing," she said, but it seemed to us that
if we worked in front of the camera
in the daytime and on the stage at
night we shouldn't mind sitting
down and waiting for people who were
late to tea with us and might even
hope that they would be late.
Miss Howland always has fascinated
us. Her vigor, her good looks and her
humor are most attractive, and al?
though we had known her only five
minutes we wanted to say "Where were
you born and how old are you, and
how long have you been on the stage
and are you married and have you al?
ways played comedy and isn't it fas
cinating and is that color all your
own and what is your favorite fur and
are you extravagant and do you be?
lieve in reincarnation and where did
you get that silver cross and chain
that looks like the one Hamlet wears
when he soliloquizes?"
lntending, diplomatically, to lead up
to the first question we started with
the last. "That? Why that was made
in the thirteenth century."
"The Spirit of the Ages!" we breathed
in awestruck tones.
"It was given to me by a young
Russian when I vislted Russia while
my brother, Olin, was dancing there.
'If you don't care to wear it, give it to
a museum,' he said, and just after that
he was killed in the war. When I re
turned to America I took it to a con
noisseur and he told me all about it.
Of course, I shouldn't be wearing it
around. It ought to be in a museum."
"What does it mean ?" we asked,
fingering the carving and trying to
pieture some of the people who might
have worn it.
"I haven't any idea."
"Perhaps it's the ancient order of the l
Rolshevik or something. They prob
ably were rampant in the thirteenth ,
Although we tried to get Miss How?
land to talk about herself, she abso- ,
lutely refused, and it wasn't until she ?
was driving us back to.the hotel that
we managed to elicit a few facts con- !
cerning her past.
She insisted on talking about Mr.
Belasco and how marvelous he is, and
you were quite sure that she meant
every word she said. Miss Howland is
the sort who would say "Dave is a
brute, and I hate nim," if she did.
"People wonder why Mr. Belasco
keeps nis people year after year and
why he has such absolute loyalty from
all of his subjects. Well, they
wouldn't wonder if ever they had
worked for him. I never have seen such
consideration. While we are rehears?
ing all of our meal? are sent in to us,
not a sandwich and a cup. of coffee.
but real food that makes you feel like
"And a thing that nobody knows is
that our props are ready for us at the
first Tehearsal. You know, as a rule,
you never have any idea what sort of
a room you're going to be in or what
kind of a chtir you're going to sit on
until the dress rehearsal. Then you
have one performance to get used to it.
But when we start to renearse every
thing is there that we are going to use,
so you feel when the curtain goes up
that awful first night that at least you
are in your own home, and you know
every rug and chair and prop, and
everything is genuine. That is what
they are always talking about as
Belasco realism. It is real.
"At the first rehearsal, when we came
to the scene where Mabel has to gather
her clothes up off the floor where she
has flung them the 'night before, I
picked up a little chemise and mar
veled at lt. The price was still on it,
and it cost $38. I don't suppoae any
one could teU from the front whether
it cost $38 or $3."
"Oh, yes, they can?we could," we
"Well, then. the money isn't wasted,
but it ia so with everything. the best
part of a Belasco season is the re
hearsing, because then you- see him
every day. After a show opens he goes
on to something else and we never see
"I suppose being with Belasco is an
education in itself, isn't it?"
"That is what I thought it would be,
but he just lets you go on and re
hearse and never says a word. Finally
I went to him and said, 'Why don't y.ou
correct me for something?' 'Because,'
he answered. 'I let people do their own
way when it is the right way.' Can you
imagine anything so perfect in this
world. where nothing perfect is?"
Having indorsed David Belasco's per?
fect ion. our mind reverted to our origi?
"Where were you born?" we asked.
"In Denver; everybody is."
Now, we know some one very well
who was born in Cohoes, but we didn't
correct Miss Howland.
"And what did you do first?"
"I played with Hackett in 'Rupert of
Hcntzau.' In those days I was alwayfj
east for grand ladies, and though I
always fought for comedy, they would
not let me do it. It wasn't until I did
'A Little Journey' that I really con
vinced people I was funny."
"P'unny! I should think you were
funny almost as funny as you are in
'The Gold Diggers.' After this they
surely won't try to make you a lady."
"N'o. I guess now they see it is no
use. I never was cut out for a lady."
"Never mind," we said encouragingly.
"Remember, you were once a lady, and
think what you are now! You are the
Spirit of the Ages."

Life One of Many
And Varied Parts
Rose Coghlan, who has a prominent
r*le in "Tht Whirlwind," John Cort's
new production at the Standard Theater,
made her first entrance through a stage
door at a performance at the Old Hay
market Theater in London, where her
brother Charles was playing in one of
John Buckstone's extravaganzas. Miss
Coghlan's brother, by the way, owed
the beginning of his stage career to
the influence' of Charles Reade, John
Oxenford and Bulwer Lytton, who, see
ing evidence of genius in a play written
by the young man?"Love and Hate, or
the Court of Charles First"?persuaded
Coghlan the eldar to allow his son to
enter on a stage career,
Rose Coghlan had h?r firat glimpse
of a theatrlcal performance when she
went to see her brother dance with the
old-fashioned "hobby-horse" in the ex
travaganza at the Haymarket. "All that
night," says the actresa, "I dveamed |
of fairies, knights and jewels, and
awoke with the determination to be
come an actress."
From that time on Miss Coghlan's
great love of the theater developed
.Hteadily, and as a young girl she took |
advantage of every opportunity to act;
at home. Says the veteran actress, in (
the history of hpr life recently pub- j
lished, "I became such a nuisance to my !
brother Charles that he surprieed us i
all one day by saying to my mother:
'It's all right! If she feels she must
be an actress we had better try to pre
Accordingly the actor - brother ar
ranged dancing lesaons for his ambi
tious sister, and for a year she studied
dancing and stage deportment. Then
when Charles Coghlan w?? ready to pro?
duce his second play, "Charles II's Es
cape from Bright Helmston," his sister
begged him to let her present a Span
ish dance as an entr-acte and he
agreed. Accordingly the actress's real
stage debut was as a Spanish dancer.
In September, 1865, Rose Coghlan
trod the boards for the first time as
a professional. She played one" of the
witches in a performance of "Macbeth"
at the Greenock Theater, Greenock,
Miss Coghlan played for an entire
season with Henry Irving. Later she
was engaged to play the role of Nerisaa
m "The Merchant of Venice," in the
production by Charles Calvert, father
of Louis Calvert. Her next engagement
was for a rdle in Wilkic Collirts's
"The Woman in White," and Miss Cogh?
lan came to America to make her debut
in this play. After the actress landed
in New York, however, it was decided
not to produce "The Woman in White,"
and she was forced to look for another
A place in Lydia Thompson's bur
lesque company was offered her?but;
her prejudice against that '* form of
entertainment wa* flrmly robted and
of long standing. Accordingly a com?
promise wes effected ? Miss Coghlan
promised tb play Jupiter in "Ixiqn" if
she might be permitted to appear in
a short comedy before the curtain rose
on the burlesque.
At the fall of the c'urtain On her
opening niftht she wa? summoned to
the office ofLester Wallack, who offered
her an engagement with E. A. Sothcrn
in "Lord Dundreary," Her success in
that piece was country wide, but soon
afterward she returned to England to i
play at the Gaicty Theater.
The following year she received \
another offer from Lester Wallack to :
come to America, and for several sea- j
sons was seen in the same company;
with John Gilbert, John Brougham,'
Harry Becket, Harry Montague and ,
Stella Bonifact. Among her earliest j
suecesses in this country were "Di- '
plomacy," "Forget Me Not," "Marriage." !
"False Shame," "Steele Mackaye's "Won |
at Last," Robertson's "School," and !
Sheridan's "School for Scandal." The j
r61e which she most enjoyed, says Miss '
Coghlan, was that of Suzanne in Sar- j
dou's "Scrap of Paper."
At that time Charles Coghlan was i
engaged as leading man in the Wallack
company, and, believing that the ar
rangement of brother and sister mak
ing love on the stage would not prove '
popular with the public, Rose accepted !
the leading position in the Baldwin
Theater company of San Francisco. Her
first appearance there was with James
O'Neill in "School for Scandal."
"When I rnet the comnmi" m re
hearsal," says Miss Coghlan. "I was
surprised to find n very young man in
the position oi.stage manager. He was
Once out of New York, however, Miss
Coghlan longed to return to Broadway,
and the following year she apppeared in
New York with John Clayton in Dion
Bouclcault's "Rescued." She later re
joined the Wallack company, playing
Rossiind in "As You Like It." Miss
Coghlan's recent American perform
anjtes are too well known to recount
hare. She was last seen in New York
in "The Man Who Stayed Home."

"An actress may have beauty, ability
and youth," said Ruth Shepley, leading
woman in "Adam and Eva" at the
Longacre. "but if she hasn't luck her
youth will fade, beauty die and ability
go for naught. Luck is an all-important
factor in the career of a player. I
have known an actress who achieved a
big success about five years ago; she
was the hit of the season. Her play
ran for an"entire year. But since then
she has been repeatedly miscast, has
played in 'flivvers' that ran only a
week. and now, disheartcned and dis
couraged, she has accepted a dramatic
role in a musical comedy.
"For myself, I think I can well say
that luck has been my handmaiden
ever since my debut. For three sea
sons I was Douglas Fairbanks's lead?
ing woman, and Douglas always had a
success on his hands. Then came 'It
Pays to Advertise,' the sprightly
comedy that New York theatergoers
flockea to for months. And tho all

Music for Movies
Must Not Obscure
The Picture Plav
There are some miusicians who feel
that their results are not what they
want them to be when the audience in
a moving picture house is more keenly
alive to the orchestral accompaniment
| than to the story being unfolded on
I the screen. This is the attitude of
! Edward Falck, Frederick Stahlberg,
j Lion Vanderheim, Victor Wagner,
Hugo Riesenfeld and Emanuel Baer,
j who collaborate on the music provided
! at the Rivoli and Rialto theaters. "
_ "There are millions of ways of select
: ing music to serve as acc'ompaniment
| for a picture, but there are only two
j ways that a good musician would
cnoose," says Mr. Riesonfeld on this
t subject. "One is to seloct beautiful
; music that is appropriate for the
; scenes of the picture?sad music for
sad scenes, sprightly music for
sprightly scenes, and so on. The good
musician, inexperienced in motion pic?
ture presentation, would undoubtedly
rollow this first course.
"The second course, and thc one that
requires the hardest work, is to select
music much as is chosen in the first
mentioned way, but with an ear to its
subjugation. There mav be half a
?? hundred waltzes that would hit pret
! tily with certain scenes, but thc ex
I penenced scorer of motion pictures
I will, after listening to the piece, know
I whether it is too> striking or even too
; beautiful for tha. scene. He will take
, care that the music does not outshine
I the picture, just as the good accom
| panist will see that his playing does
! not drown out the star."
Few pictures have presented a bigger
problem in orchestration than "Every
woman," because of the variety of
phase. In a huge room, w ith a seven
teen-foot screen at one end, a table big
enough for twelve at the other, apiano
at the side, and shooting through two
peep holes in the rear a projection mi
chine, a group of men spent-many
hours working out the suitable accom
paniment. Josiah Zuro, former con
ductor of the Manhattan Opera, and Joe
La Rose were there, along with the
others already mentioned. On the
table lay huge volumes of classified
music?waltzes, Strauss waltzes, old
waltzes, popular waltzes, concert
waltzes and slow waltzes.
There were huge volumes Ubeled
Mysterioso, Pathetic, Oriental, Miscel
ianeous Andantes, Love Themes, Neu
tral, Battle Music and so on. covering
about 5,500 complete orchestrations and
thousands pf other pieces of music.
"Somebody's Courting Somebody,"
said the title, showing in a beautiful
grove a boy and girl seated on a bench.
The lighting was stunning?the whole
thing, occupying only a few seconds,
looked real. Emanuel Baer, at the
piano, struck up a tune.
It was a love song, rich and beauti?
ful. "You will bury the picture," said
the impresario. "Things can be too
beautiful." He turned to Victor Wag?
ner. "Massenet's 'Werther.' I think
you know the part I mean." Wagner
brought it, marked. Baer played it
while the projection. man ran the scene
over. "It will do," said Riesenfeld.
Came the scene where Wealth ap
pears and has his inning. A debate
ensued. Concert marches galore were
considered. Riesenfeld, Falck and Wrag
ner, all storehouses of musical litera
ture, suggosted and suggested. Baer
played them, but nothing won a unan
imous verdict. Other dignified and im
posing numbers were brought on.
Everything sounded too rich, even for
Wealth. A maestoso from "Tales of
Hoffman" at last won, because, while
it indicated vastness and power, two
qualities of wealth, it also suggested
pompousness and vanity, Wealth's fos
ter brothers. And so the "scoring" of
the picture went on.
Herbert Rawlinson, who has just
