ess of Doubt," the five-part Metro
wonderplay presented by B. A. Rolfe
and directed by George D. Baker.
Many of the scenes for this comedy
drama for the screen were made in
famous winter resorts of Florida, at
Palm Beach, St Augestine and Jack
sonville, and guests at the fashion
able hotels showed the greatest in
terest in the production. Many of
them acted as "extra people" in the
great ball-room scene, and in other
scenes where ensembles are used.
Mr. Baker found them easy to direct,
willing and anxious to obey instruc
tions, and they have added much to
the distinction of many of the scenes
in "The Duchess of Doubt"
Emmy Wehlen as Clover Ames in
this feature screen rtay is mistaken

the attentions that a real Duchess
would receive. She has fashionable
society at her feet One of her
"slaves" is a young man who boldly
proclaims thst hs is aolhing but a
ribbon-clerk. However, he isn't and
that fact forms the foundation for
one of the most attractive screen
stories yet produced by Metro.

"Sis Shooter Andy."
Tom Mix hss a stirring new play
of the gold mining West in William
Fox's "Six Shooter Andy."
Andy Crawford (Tom Mix) Is mak
ing for Oannack, Nevada, where he
hopes to get rich by panning. Near
the town he finds Susan Allenby
(Enid Markcy) with her sight broth
ers and sisters, busan s father is
lying in the road dead, having been
killed by one of the "gang" of Iian
nack whose leader was no less a man
than sheriff, Tom Slade (Sam IH
All go into the town. Andy fights
for everything that is decent He
proves to be quicker with his gun
than the wicked sheriff and in the
end turns liannack into a place where
men get their Just dues. He even
balks the sheriff's designs on Susan.
To do all this, however, needs some
clever acting, some qiick gun play.
Tom Mix, man of the plains, does
some hair-raising stunts in winning
the girl and churning up liannack.
Susan's eight brothers and sisters
prove a big help to Tom.
The story is taken from a page in
the history of the gold rush of sixty-odd
years ago. Conditions like
those shown in the p'icture are gone
and past, but they were times that
tried men's souls.
