G. A. M.
"CJIBCKBRS" AT THIS WIGWAM.
"Checkers" will be the special at
traction at the Wigwam today, tomor
row and Wednesday. As a novel by
Henry Blossom, jr., "Checkers" first
came into popularity some 10 years
ago. From the play a scenario was pre
pared by Lawrence McGill and Eustace
Hale Ball and, working from this
scenario, the new production for the
camera was staged under the personal
supervision of Augustus Thomas, direc
tor general of productions' for the All
Star Feature Corporation. The race
track scenes were taken at Havre-de-5rac
and at Laurel, Md., duriny the
race meetings there and In. the Betft
betting ring scene there were employed
hundreds of actors. The cast of princi
pals was selected personally by Mr.
Thomas and contains many well known
Broadway names. Playing "Pert Bar
low." opposite to Mr. Ross is Katherlne
LaSalle; and Jack Regan will be seen
as "Push Miller," the race horse tout.
Louis Reeves Harrison, a special
writer and critic for the Moving Pic
ture World, the trade paper of motion
picture exhibitors, says:
" 'Checkers' looks like a winner for
many reasons. There is exhibited a
desire to get at the actual facts of life
.s many of us know it, a striving for
verity that receives splendid support
from the way the play is put on; there
is reality in every environment that
wfll be widely recognized in this coun
try, and the folks in the story dress
nd act very much like human beings
would under the circumstances. The
admirable selection of types and their,
sympathetic handling contributes so
heavily to the success of the piece that
two of the minor roles shine out illus
trious and steal honors from the leads.
The 'atmosphere' of that part of the
story pertaining to the adventures of
'Checkers' and Push' at the race track
rreatlf enriches and deepens interest
tn the action, giving it so mueh sig
nltieanee that the village scenes grew
tame in comparison."
The admission will be 26 cents for
adults and 15 cents for children. The
?ieture will start as fellows: Noon,
