Nobody ever lived in a ghetto like
the one pictured in "The Golem," the
European picture which Hugo Riesen
feld has prepared for presentation at
the Criterion Theater. If the Jews had
possessed a place so rich 3*n art as that
produced by Paul Wegener some king
probably would have seized it for his
palace. Yet the ghetto built as a stage
setting for "The Golem" does sjive the
impression of a home for the Jews in
the Middle or Dark Ag-es?does present
a picture of their existence in those
lt is a bizarre creation, this ghetto
that Wegener had constructed. Two
things stand out?a wall of tremendous
size, with a gate so huge that a cour
tier on horseback looks like a pygmy
as he rides through it to tell the Jews
of their coming doorn. Tho other is a
tower?a leaning, tottering thing that
stands out in its impressionistic way
as a symbol of thc life of the Jew in
that period, always on the verge of
destruction. This tower, commanding
the only road that leads into the re
stricted section, served a double pur?
pose. It enabled the Jewish watchsnan
to keep track of those who left the
walled town and elso to see that the
gates were closed when a menacing mob
appeared, not an unusual condition.
Both watches were necessary, for Jews
were not allowed to stay in the non
Jewish part of the city after sundown,
and failure to observe that rule re
sulted in punishnient not only for the
oirender, but for all his co-religionists.
In Houses of Ghetto
The houses in that ghetto of "The
Golem" aro Arabic and Moorish in
original design, variegated in their
colors and dilapidated?tottering and
yet bearing an appearance of majesty.
Walls, gates, towers and houses all tell
the story of the time.
Paul Wegener, one of Europe's well
known screen actors, directed the pic?
ture and took the part of the clay fig?
ure brought to life by cabalistic rites.
Many inquiries have come regarding
not only the me^ning- but the purpose
oil the golem. Its definition is simple.
It means an inaniniate creation in the
llkeness of a human being, a statue.
Ii3 Jewish slang it means a stupid per?
son, a "dummf." The latter word prob?
ably is the most nearly correct defini
As a story "The Golem" is a photo
graph of Jewish hopes and Jewish da
spair in the darkest period of the ex
fstence of that race.
In the fourteentJi century the Jew
was a chattel. He lived in h ghetto, on !
the sufferance of a king, or a duke, or a I
robber baron. He could not leave the
ghetto without permiasion, jmd he
could not engage in any occupation ex?
cept that of lending money or buying
and selling old clothes. He could not j
attend a school.

to the' golem created by Rabbi Lowe,
and whicli saved the Jewish people
from destruction in that city.
It is in this spirit that Wegener has
staged and acted his picture, except
that he chose the most romantic of the
legends, one that carries a love affair
between the king's courtier and the

Has a Variety of Problems
The path of the vaudeville producer
is no bed of roses, according to Menlo
Moore. In commenting upon the differ
ence between staging for vaudeville and
for regular shows, Mr. Moore said that
he considered that vaudeville presented
greater obstacles. He continued:
? "The vaudeville audience demands
the best in costumes and scenery?and
usually gets it. But fine fabrics and
yards of canvas are not all. There
must be real talent among the princi
pals, and beauties in the chorus. Im
agine the trouble in convincing some of
this talent that they must work twice
each day for seven days on our acts
that travel from coast to coast, when we
are competing with. Broadway produc
tions that have only two matineea a
week. Money is the only attraction
that will compensate. And the vaude?
ville producer cannot figure on the in?
creased box office receipts of a popular
play. The vaudeville turn receives a
fixed salary, and even though the turn
may be as pretentious as a Broadway
show, that salary must be kept within
the limit that will pernjit the presenta
tion of tho usual eight acts constitut
ing a big time bill.
"The Santosand Hayes Revue, for in
stance, is an expensive proposition for
us. To begin with, there are Santos
and'Hayes. Then there are Will Higgie
and Bobbie Tremaine, the specialty
dancers, not to mention the others. Be?
sides the east, there are the book and
the lyrlcs by Cliff Hess, and the music
by Milton Schwarzwald. Schwarzwald
travels with the company to conduct
the orchestra in each house."
Mr. Moore, with Macklin Megley, will
present the Santos and Hayes Revue at
the New Brighton Theater thia week.

The famous stage play "The Girl of
tho Golder. West" will be Ethel Clny

New Dunsany Play and Mark

"If" Is Mystical but Amusing; Even Stoical Had
to Laugh at Absurdities of
Front The Tribune'a European Bureau
LONDON, May 31.?Two pleasant
fantasy plays that turn t'.mo backward
in its flight delighted London audi
ences at their openings last evening.
One was a now play by Lord Dunsany,
the rather mystlcal but amuslng "If,"
which was produced at tho Ambassa?
dors Theater. The other was William
Fox's screen version of Mark Twain's
"A Yankee at the Court of King
Arthur," which kept the audience of
the paeked Alhambra Music Hall tn
roara of laughter.
The hush_d Orient spirit of "Gods
of the Mountain" broods over some
portions of "If," but it would seem
tha. Lord Dunsany's mysticism has
been turned more to the uses of bur
Iesque than the tragic heavy, moving
tenor of his earlier plays. John Beal,
the hero of the story, is a common
place and everyday business man, who
after hi3 day's work in the city regu?
larly returns to placid domesticity with
his wife and two children in a suburban
villa. John's life is calm and placid,
until one day he is visited by Ali, an
Oriental, who offers him a magic stone
which, if he desires to use it, gives him
the power io secure the life that he
would have been his had he taken some
different turning in life years before.
It is 0. Her.ry's story of "The Four
Roads of Destiny" again, and John is
anxious to know what would have hap
pened if he hadn't missed a certain
railway train ten years before. He
rubs the crystal and the life he never
lived opens out before him.
Play Has No Aets, but
Is Broken by Eleven Scenes
John eaught the train. Adventure

and charming Miralda Clement, whom
he protects from a brutal stranger who
