"BILL" HART AT THE ELKO
Hart's appearance as a westerner
have been*many and varied since he
deserted the speaking stage for mo
tion pictures, and he has attained a
niche in the. Hall of-Fame that is
peculiarly his own. The actor's fol
lowing is tremendous in all sections
of the country, and tftis admirers
flock to any theater Showing anew
"Bill" Hart phptodrama.
In "The Silent Man," Hart will
have the r/ole of a miner 'who has
made a rich "strike" on the "desert
and has come into a small border
town to record his claim. His rich
ore attracts the attention of the pro
prietor, of a gambling resort, who
immediately seeks tp roib. the miner.
This is accomplished" through the
connivance of a government' clerk in
the land office. Then follows a spir
ited, vigorous and uncommonly sen
sational fight on the part of the mi
ner to recover possession of his
claim, during which he is called up
on to take the law pretty much into
his own hands. .There is a very de
lightful love story running through
out the* action of the plan.
How many domestic tragedies
have their source in mere misunder
standings! It is not /true that a ma
jority of separations, divorces, sui
cides, homicides, have their incep
tions in what one party or another
thinks, not what he' knows? The
tragedy in the lives of Archibald and
Heloise Crocker, upon which the
story of "The Door* Between" is
based, was one of these.
With an extraordinary cast of no
te*d players, headed by Hazel-Dawn
and Bert' Lytell, Herbert Brenotfs
widely heralded Selznick-PIctures
version of Louis Joseph "Vance's nov
el, "The Lone Wolf," comes to the
Rex theater tonight and tomorrow.
In addition to Miss Dawn, who "is
known to every theatergoer and pic
ture patron in the country, and-Mr.
Lytell, who has heen featured in nu
merous stage success, Mr. Brenon has
engaged for this remarkable photo
melodrama such other players of
stellar capacity as Alfred Hickman,
Edward Abeles, William E. Shay,
Stephen Grattan, William Jliley
Hatch, Florence AshbrookeT Juliet

The story centers about the deeds
and adventures of a master criminal

exciting adventures, including a run
ning fight throug'h.the streets of
Paris in taxicabs ajid a battle in
aeroplanes, in flight across the Eng
