A Supreme Adaption of Shakespeare
There nave been ec reen adaptions
ot HM* great dramatist's plays In days
past-a number of them - und th**
greatest acton of tho world huve
played thi' pa rta, without doubt th?
Smalley*' Tour wi productions, ndnp
t';i from "The Merchant of Venice"
under the "Universal Special Feature"
brand, will stand a long time us tho
upex of perfection, it is one of the
most elaborate, from the point of
costly costumes and scenery, that the
Universal Manufacturing company
has ever turned out. So careful have
thc Smalley bee nto render the pro
duction technically correct that many
of the Venetian street scenes were
done four or five times before they
would answer the specific require
ments of the producers.
Confident that this play would
stand in all time to come as an ex
ample of their ability-as the master
piece hy which all other of their
works would he judged, they have put
Into the production their sovereign
efrortH. thc utmost skill und inspira
tion a?, their command^ T?tere is no
question about the result ; the impres
sion left is that only tho diviue spark
of genius could have udauted, produc
ed am', ected out the parts of this
All onion In the play which ls re
fet red to In the lines, hut whlch-dowr
not luke place upon the stage, has
boon ahowu In the screen production.
Consequently the singe version has
not been followed scene for scene, but
many scenes which stago limitations
bar have been injected into the piece.
For this reason alone the film pro
duction will prove of great Interest.
Phillips Smalley has essayed the
nu) : OP Shylock, aad Lola Weber, Por
tia.^ If there has been any doubt aa
to Mr. Smalley's worthiness to take
his place in the front rank of the
greatest contemporary screen artists
it will be shadowed on viewing the
present play. Mr. Smalley ls a tho
rough student of Shakespeare, having
plared leads in- many of his plays
before entering motion pictures
Mr Smalley IB also a keen student
of huttm nature. This is plainly re
flected in Ids characterization of Shy
lock, an Interpretation that ls origi
nal fresh andj, ^vigorous. ,

A gcnora! diacuHBion was heard yes
terday by u reporter for The Intolll
Igtncer in which several live-wire
farmers were participating. One man
was complaining about the high cost
of living, saying that he could hard
ly afford to even buy corn for his
stock to est. Another farmer In the
crowd spoke up: "I havo an old mule
out on my plantation, 19 years old,
and that mule has never had an ear
of bought com In his life." The plant
er said that alt the corn used on hi*
place, was raised right there and that
be had never bought an ear of corn in
his life. He said also that be raised
his Own meat ana nour and that so
far aa he knew, living was not any
higher new than lt was 20 years ago.
A number of other Anderson farmers
might reich that same conclusion If
they would follow his plan for a few
