"VULTURES OF SOCIETY"
MARVEL OF PRODUOTION
Spectacular Presentation True Tale of
Life Today-How Orphan Girl Wins
Prince and Fortune. At Idle Hour
Monday, May 22.
Down deep underneath the sarface
of society in the larger cities there
lurks constantly an element of ro
mance and intrigue more strange than
any adventure in the open. In "Vul
tures of Society," Essanay's latest
powerful flive-act drama, the mist has
been lifted from the machinations of
the masqueraders in the homes of the
wealthy and a realistic story of an
odd phase of American life revealed.
The play was produced under the
direction of E. H. Calvert. While the
drama Is made up of a series of
amazing circumstances, there is not
one scene that does not happen in
The abduction of a prince by a "so
ciety thief," who is his double, and
the advantage thus given this leader
and his bandit band, is but one of
the brilliant pieces of action, sec
ondary, however, to the old trail of
the boarding-school girl who turns
adventuress when driven to it by her
millionaire employer. But the rich
vulture lives to face a greater sorrow
than he ever caused his stenographer.
Lillian Drew has attained a mar
velous interpretation of the part of
Teddy Uinns, the boarding-school
girl who from stenographer leaps to
the position of wealthy Spanish
senorita fawned upon the society.
Marguerite Clayton, as Eloise. Clever
man, the unconventional daughter of
the millionaire, is seen in a role which
affords her ideal opportunities. E. H1.
Calvert is the leader of the band of
dress-suit thieves and the double of
the prince. The part of the rich
mierchant is played by Ernest Mau
('ari front Mr.r Harris.
