Morris Gest's production of "Mecca,"
which was shown at tho Century last
night, is more beautiful and more dar?
ing than "Aphrodite." To complete
tho statistics it might, also be added
that it is bigger. The most potent
appeal is visual. Of all tho various
authors, composers and painters who
have contributed to the production the
chief credit should go to Michel Fokine,
the Russian choreographist. The bac?
chanale which he arranged for the last
act is easily the most striking incident
:ti the performance. Probably only Dr.
Straton could tell whether or not it
was more sinful than the correspond?
ing number in "Aphrodite." It was so
fast and furious that our impression
was blurred, but wo did carry away a
mental picture of the final tableau in
which the stage was paved with scores
and peores of recumbent women a?
thick as good intentions. But perhaps
it would be just as well not to go tor
fully into motives. Perhaps it will
suffice to say that the ballet is beauti?
ful as well as startling.
Everything about the production i?
lavish and some of it is better than
mereiy generous. Tho elaborate change.6
of scenery were handled so expedi
tiously that the melodramatic features
of the big musical show were not
drowned out by the wealth of move?
ment, color and dancing. The play con?
cerns a sultan, his rival and a beauti?
ful singing girl, and though it pauses
now and again for ballet interludes
there are authentically exciting mo?
ments, such as the wrestling match be?
tween the sultan and the villainous
strong man who tries to kill him, the
raid upon the caravan to Mecca and
the slave market. Lionel Braham plays
the strong man with gusto. Orvillc
Caldwell is effective as the heroic sul?
tan. Gladys Hanson is a splendid fig?
ure and Hannah Tobcck carried the
part of the singing girl pleasantly. Bui

iirst rate. We must confess, however
that we find drama generally more ar
resting in plays which require some
thing less than three or four hundrei
persons. As a theatergoer one heroin?

weighs even two hundred dancing girli
clad only in the mosquito netting o
their native land.
The first of Mme. Borgny Hammer's
Ihsen matinees, presented yesterday ?it
the Little Theater, was a pretty be?
wildering affair. Mme. Borgny Ham?
mer was presented by Lawrence
< larke, who announced her "Hcdda
Gabbler" the two B's being the pro?
gram's idea?as her American d?but.
It announced her further as "of the,
National Theater of Christiania. Nor?
way." The latter of these statements
is probably accurate, though the
former is not, but being "of the Na?
tional Theater of Christiania" did
Mme. Borgny Hammer little enough
service in acquainting her with what
"Hedda" was all about. She played
her now in evangelical sweetness, now
in a sort of Alpine boredom, once or
twice in a tantrum. To a spectator
seeing the play for the first time,
Hedda must nave peemed to be, in so
far as she was anything, a sweet
woman with fits.
Mme. Borgny Hammer has a fine
physical command of a stage, and, at
times, great beauty. She delivers lines
with at least an intelligent idea of
what those lines mean. But of the
gift of adding up lines and scenes and
totaling a human being, she. showed
Her supporting company contained
two acceptable players, Rolf Fjell and
Mercedes Desmore. Another item from
the program states: "Mme. Hammer's
gowns. General Gabler'a portrait, the
lighting of the play and the execution
and painting of the scenery by the
Wits and Fingers Studio."

There is a tune that lingers, which is
the first evidence that real, old-fash?
ioned musical comedy is not a tiling of
history. It is called "The Magic Kiss."
Ami then there is Joe E. Brown, the
busy butler of the play, who is scream?

trick automobile and his "vacant

best into a new realm, and Ned Sparks

As if one lilting melody or two or

lias written an entire score that never

plot to "Jim Jam Jems," it sparkles
with its situations, and last, night com?
muters were forced to wait Cor much
later trains than usual because of the
outbursts of applause that hung long
after each curtain dropped.
There is a cabaret scene in the fust
act that should be shortened. By al

while doing that, they should, to routu
out a perfectly delightful offering, d<

The Theatre Guild opened its thin
season ?it, tlie Garrick Theater las
night with the production of "TIv
Treasure," by David Pinski, Writtei
originally in Yiddish, the comedy wa
staged in Germany by Max Reinhardt
Last night's presentation was the lirs
time it has been seen on the English
Since the presentation of St. Jolv
Ervine's "John Ferguson" by the Guil
during its first season, and of the sam
author's "Jane Clegg'1 last season, on
gops forth to succeeding production
filled with expectancy and hope.
Tho Theater Guild, during its shoi
existence, has established a tradit.io
for itself a tradition of the tine
things of the stage. Last night thi
tradition was established (?ven moi
firmly than before. Pinski's incish
four-act comedy, ?gtaged skilfully an
sympathetically by Emanuel Reiche
and acted with a real note of sincerit;
especially by Celia Adler, fred Eri
Dudley Diggos and Helen Woatle1
takes it place with the other fir
achievements of the organization.
The charm of Pinski's comedy lit
in its humanness. Knowing his ov>
people so well, he has chosen to wri
of a small Jewish community in Ru
sia. and to expose, in a delightful
amusing fashion, the foibles, the hypo
ricies and the ambitions of the re
characters he has created.
But men and women are human b
ings whether they make their beds
a N'ew England village or on the di
sands of Africa, and all the fuss, s
the excitement made over the report?
discovery of the treasure in the grav
yard by tho gravediggr's son won
have been stirred up in a Yankee coi
munity as easily as in the Russian coi
munity in the play.
There is no forced, slapstick hum
in Pinski's play, which was translati
for last night's production by Ludw
Dazzled by the thought of suddi
and great wealth by the supposed di
covery of the treasure in the in'a\

each member of the community, fr;
the humblest to the highest, won

colic Romance of "Homespun
Folks'1 at the Capitol
By Harriette UncJerhill
"Homespun Folks" i< a Charles Ray
picture; so much so, in fact, that we
cannot see how any director had the
temerity to produce it without Charles
Ray. "Homespun Folks" is the first
special production for Associated Pro?
ducers and it is the feature at the
t'a pi toi "this wecK. i! promises to be
extremely popular because it has an op?
pressed farmer hoy rise to the dignity
of . district attorney and marry the
daughter of his political enemy. It
also has cows, horses, dogs and chick?
ens in it, some good acting and some
There are no stars in the picture and
none of the players is familiar to us.
Lloyd Hughes plays the young district
attorney, Gladys George is the heroine
and Al Filson the belligerent father.
Anyhow, "Homespun Folks" is an
entertaining picture and the best we
have seen in a week- It was written by
Julien Josephson and directed by John
Griffith Wray. On the picture program
also is the Capitol News and a Larry
Semon comedy, "The Suitor." The
overture is "Hungarian Lustspiel."
"The Heritage of the Red Man" is an
art color production, with a special
nuisic.il score. Desire La Salle sings
Bizet's "Toreador Song" and the Capi?
tol male quartet sings.
Mary Miles Minter is at the Rialto
;ii "Sweet L?V( rider " and after saying
that a review of the picture seems
superfluous. It explains itself ho
thoroughly that no 011? who comes out
of the theater dissatisfied can say that
he was lured in under false pretenses,
Mary Miles Minter is always sweet and
lavender is always sweet, so if you
don't like them stay away.
Lavender was almost like Pollyanna,
only instead of always being "glad"
she was always sure of people's
honesty. Our feelings on this subject
are particularly keen because W2 used
to share Lavender's faith. When Lav?
ender trusted her thiifgs to h>r maid
the maid stole them and then returned
them, saying she just couldn't rob one
who trusted her. Of course that was
sweet of tho maid, but she looked just
like the one we hired who didn't act a
bit like that. Perhaps our faith was
not great enough.
But if Lavender was sweet she was
also practical, and when she was only
sixteen she fell in love with a rich
student who lived in her aunt's lodg?
ing house and he fell in love with her
and they got their guardians' consent
and lived happily ever after,
Theodore Roberts is a forgetful old
professor-?delightful bit, of course
and Milton Siils is the hard hearted
guardian. Can this be the same actoi
