Orphan Annie
In New Picture,
Half of the Profits W?l Go |
to a Different Ofphanage
Each Week of Its Ron
By Harriette Underbill
A pictnre called "-Poergct He Not"
will be presented at the ?Criterion ?to?
day and it probably will ?stay there for
a long time because it is one of thoae
pictures which are designed to make
people do what they love best to do,
vie: cry.
One-half the proceeds of the box of?
fice will be donated by Metro to the
different orphan asylums, end it will
start with the Israel Orphan Asylum
at Arverne. The picture ought also to
stimulate the plan of adoption when
you see how nicely it works. It eo af?
fected us at a semi-private showing
that we Trashed oat end adopted two
orphans; bat perhaps we ought to ex?
plain that they are only half orphans
and that their father is a fascinating
young physician of our acq_aint_u_ce. j
Let os warn you before you go to:
see "Forget Me Not"; do not go to scoff, :
for you may find much to criticize if
you go in that mood. Perhaps you
don't believe that the hand of Provi?
dence is guiding the long ai-m of eo- :
incidence, and in that case you won't
believe that three people could float
?round all over the globe and yet man?
age to meet et the psychological mo?
ment again and again.
Perhaps you won't believe that a
mother could thrill at the touch of her
ten-year-old child whom she had not ,
seen 6ince she had abandoned it at the .
age of ten weeks. Perhaps yon won't j
believe that a young man could go mad
at the death of his young wife and ;
then suddenly come out of it at the ]
sight of the young girl he had always
lo?_cd. But if you do not believe these j
things and if you do not like the pic?
ture keep it to yourelf and remember!
those orphans who are going to benefit
by it. It was the memory of those
orphans that made the picture so popu
lar with ns. |
Only one thing we are going to
criticize: We. ?do-not like to see men
of twenty-five or so play boy's parts,
and Gareth Hughes, who is a clever
and an ardent young actor, does not
look twelve. Wo were filled with con?
flicting emotions when he said to the
kind lady who came to the orphange to
adopt him, "I'm just a big, rough fei- i
low. Don't adopt*me; adopt Ann." And
again when we saw Irene Hunt putting!
?him t? bed arid? the title said that at
last he would have a mother's care.
Bessie Love played the little girl, Ann,
but Miss Love isn't yet twenty and she
can look any age from five up, like
Mary Pickford. .
The etory starts, off with a pooT
mother whose husband is desperately
ill and .whose baby Is crying for food.
Finall*., she can stand it no longer and
she takes tho child to a home. A crib
is' placed'in. the reception room and
a. notice says that any child placed
there will be left for one hour and in
that time the mother can make up her
mind finally. It was 3 o'clock when the
mother left the baby, Ann, and the title
says "(?ame that mother to tho park,"
etc. When it is ton minutes to 4
?by the cathedral clock she suddenly de?
cides ?to keep her child and rushes back
tofind the crib empty. Then she learns
.that the cathedral clock.waa five min
?utca slow. ,,No, we do not know why
ehe did no.t go in and explain matters
.to the management, only she didn't.
She mourned for years, and it was
,years before she finally found her
.child. By that time she had grown
very rich, but she hung around the old
"-?pot and "came a day" when the mother
?qverheard the janitor tell the old 6ex
ton about Beeing a mother leave her
.child years before. When she ques?
tioned him he had kept track of the
child ail .those years and could tell her
just where to find Ann.
No, we do not know how he knew
which her child was after they took
her in and put a numbered tag on her
wrist, especially as the home, was later
destroyed by a fire, which made a
cripple of little Ann. But he did know;
otherwise the mother would never have
, found her child. She had adopted
- Jimmie, who lost his mind when his
? ?young \yife died and they all met at
r .Ann's concert that night. The mother
', went there, guided by the janitor's
| memory, and the boy went there guided
by his own. . You see he had always
loved Ann, No matter whether you
Jove the picture or not you are going
.to lovo Queenie, who plays a prom?
inent part? It is a case of three stars
? in a film, to say nothing of the dog.
The third star Is Otto Lederer, who
plays an old musician.
The A. M. P. A, representing the
advertising and publicity branches of
the motion picture Industry in the
East, has enlisted in the emergency
.' drive for the israel Orphan Asylum also.
The following Bcreen artists-have
promised their co-operation: Dolores
? Cassinelli,. Marion Davies, Johnny
Hines, Alice' Brady, Jack Holt, Hope
Hampton, Mabel Ballin, Hugo Ballin,
Zena Keefe, David Powell, Pearl White,
Betty Blythe, Richard Barthelmess,
Pauline* Gttron, G?7?rynedd Vernon and
Lucy. Fox.
The exact nature of the part that
these stars will play in the drive will
te announced. It is possible that they
?nay combine with the baseball inter?
ests In staging a huge benefit.

Neilan Hopeful
For Production
Of Better Films
Before ho left for the Coast the
other day to begin filming Donn
Byrne's novel, ?"The Strangers' Ban?
quet," which -will be his first photo
drama under his new arrangement with
Goldwyn, Marshall Neilan made the
interesting statement that "the end of
the string of sausage pictures has been
"With the coming season," Mr.
Neilan asserted, "beginning in Septem?
ber, tho program picture?the picture
which is made and sold as part of a
series?will be conspicuous by its ab?
sence. In its place will be the big pro?
duction, produced and sold individu?
ally, more on the order of a stage play.
Every company has cut down its out?
put for the coming year?tho larger
organizations having cut their number
of productions in half?and motion
picture patrons are bound to experi?
ence a notable advance in the quality
i of their entertainment.
"Producers in Hollywood and Culver
i City aro no longer striving for a quan?
tity of pictures. In former days it
| was no joke to give a director 6,600
feet of film with the erder to make a
five-reel picture^?it was fact. When
the film was "shot' the picture was
finished. To a.certain extent this idea
has been carried out in picture mak?
ing for years, and up until recently,
when the plan ef big productions be?
came universal among producers, the
program typo of picture has predomi?
"As a striking example, Goldwyn
with Its vast producing facilities in tht
East and West for turning out hun?
dreds of pictures, for the coming yea3
I will produce only twenty pictures, Tht
I product of my own organization is in*
j eluded In these twenty pictures. An
other big organization that has beer
releasing nearly two hundred picture!
a year now announces it will offei

This holds true of every organizatioi

"Borderland" ?t
Rivoli Theater
A Psychic Film
In its settings "Borderland," which
comes to the Rivoli to-day, pictures
that plane where spirits roam for cen?
turies until they have won surcease
through sacrifice. This plane, the
Borderland, is, to the average person,
a dreamy, fantastio sphere, undqllne
ated. To give this sense of vague?
ness, of dignity and beauty was a prob?
lem for the producers. In "One Glo?
rious Day," the paramount production
In which "EK," the spirit, came to
earth and settled within the body of
will Rogers, the spirit land was pic?
tured rather in weird and humorous
terms. But In "Borderland," which
was written by Beulah Marie Dix, the
story was of dramatio power and the
spirit sphere was to be pictured with
the greatest beauty.
To blend the hundreds of spirit fig?
ures with the vaguely defined settings
was another problem for the producers
and Director Paul Powell. The cloth
for the costumes was dyed and then
darkened at the bottom to gain the
proper effect, the figures apparently
moving unseen across the stage.
To students of motion pictures It is
in stories such as "Borderland" that
the motion picture stands supreme. In
no other art medium can disembodied
spirits be given such semblance oi
reality as in the photoplay. On the
stage the human figure cannot be made
as ethereal as in film form.
"Borderland," while partly laid Ir
the realm of the spirits, is one ?of th?
strongest stories ever written by Mist
Dix. It treats of a young wife, playee
by Agnes Ayres, who plans to leavi
her son and husband and flee with he:
lover. The wife's great-grandaun'
seventy years before deserted he:
daughter and husband, lost her life a
sea, and was doomed to roam througl
Borderland until she found the spiri
of her dead daughter. Realizing tha
her niece was about to fall Into th>
same error the spirit struggles to eartl
to warn the young woman. Her re
ward is that she turns the wife fron
her mad adventure and finds the spiri
of her own child?thus being release^
from her endless search.
Milton Sills, Casson Ferguson; Fre
Huntley, Bertram Grassby and the tw
child stars., Frankie Lee and Mar
Jane Irving, have important roles i
the production.

I An Entertainment
Done by Lew Leslie
In Natural Colors
The "Plantation Revue," which opened
last week at the Forty-eighth Street
Theater, is, in reality, two reviews
rolled into one to make an evening's
entertainment- The first act is re?
cruited' from vaudeville. The second
act is taken from the restaurant which
now bears the name "Plantation" be?
cause of the revue which was given
there every night between the hours
of 12 and 2. When Lew Leslie de?
cided that New York was really
hankering- for high class colored en?
tertainment he resolved to make haste
and give New Yorkers what they
wanted. In other words, he had the
courage of their convictions, but he
decided not to flood the market and
never to let the supply exceed the
demand. So ho instituted a revue in
the club which used to be the Bal
Tabarin, and because all of the enter?
tainers were more or less colored he
called it "The Plantation." At its
head he put Florence Mills, who is
probably not more than one-eighty.
negress, but who seeme to have re?
membered all of the weird dances anc
the crooning songs which her great
great-grandmother may have performec
in Africa. Florence Mills immediateh
became a personage. Everyone wen
to the "Plantation" and that eleve:
Mills girl was invited to appear at al
of the benefits, which she cheerfull;
and smilingly did.
In the club show she wore an orar.g
gown in one of her numbers, and on
night one of the smartest debutants i:
town was carrying an immense ostric!
plumed fan of the same brilliant coloi
At the end of the song the debutant
applauded loudly and then tossed he
fan to Florence Mills, saying, "Keep it
it matches your gown." Both the gow
and the fan are a part of the nc
"Plantation Revu*," which promises t
be quite as popular in two volumes s
It was in one. To the club revue Lesli
has added not only a first act, but h
has engaged Shelton Brooks as mastc
of ceremonies. Part of the time Brool
seems to be imitating Raymond Hitcl
cock, but Hitchcock himeslf was in tl
audience the opening night and ti
second night also, so maybe the reven
is also true.
At any rate, he is very funny. Wh?
he introduces the "Plantation Quarte
he sounds like Will Rogers. He say
"I got four boys a-singing here for n
and I'll call 'em out. They used to cs
themselves the 'Hawaiian Quartet,' ai
I want you all to tell me if you thii
any one would ever mistake 'em for
Hawaiian quartet. I made "em chan
it to the 'Plantation Quartet.' Lo
at 'em."
If you are going to take one of t
modern flappers to see "Plantation J,

like, but if you are thinking of taki

Great Is the Joy
S Among Vaudeville
Artists of America
The other day when the National
i Vaudeville Artists, Inc., numerically
' the largest theatrical organization in
! the world, held their annual meeting
I and unanimously elected Fred Stone
? as their president, the comedian in his
speech of acceptance declared that he
considered the honor a fitting reward
for the many years of hard work he
had put in as an entertainer. He also
announced that he intended to enroll
every member of the vaudeville pro
; fession as a member of the organiza?
tion. If he accomplishes that?and nc
j one doubts but that he will?th?
N. V. A. will have 20,000 members. Il
has more than half that number nov
and a million-dollar clubhouse in Wes
Forty-sixth Street.
Now that Fred Stone has become th?
active head of the organization it:
| members are looking forward to eve3
greater accomplishments and benefit;
than have accrued during the last fiv
or six years. Fred Stone is a mai
whose eminence in the theatrical fiel?
commands the respect and admiratioi
of not only the theatergoing public, bu
of artists and managers as well. Unde
* his leadership the vaudeville artist
are hopeful of inaugurating a co-op
erative campaign with the manageria
interests that will further lighten thei
burdens and improve their workin
A great deal has already been ac
complished along these lines. For ir
stance, an arrangement has been pei
fected with the presidents of ever
?ailroad in the country whereby vaud?
ville artists' baggage, bearing a dit
tinctive N. V. A. stencil, is given prel
crcnce and goes through on the sam
train with the artists, thus eliminatin
the old-time nuisance of delayed an
missed shows on opening days, with th
resultant disappointment and loss <
money to both manager and artist3.
A campaign is well under way ft
the elimination of all objectionab
material on all vaudeville stages. Ai
other campaign has for its objecti**
the partticipation by the artists :
civic affairs. Scores of Chambers
Commerce, Rotary clubs and simili
organizations, not to mention innume
able country clubs and golf cours?
now extend the courtesies of the
club rooms and other accommodatio:
to visiting Vaudeville artists. All th
has had a tendency to elevate1 the a
tist in the eyes of the public and
bring heme to him a realization of h
responsibilities as a citizen.
It is along these lines that Fr
Stone intends to work. He wants
let the American public know that t
artist is a human being, like every o
else, with the same likes and dislik
and the same kind of a heart as ot'r
people have. Fred Stone himself
considered the exemplification of th?
things. He has the unanimous si
port and confidence of every vaudevi
artist in the United States and Cana
He has achieved all the fame and f<
tune that any individual of the st!
could hope for and now he intends i
ing on a big scale what he has alw?
done on a small, man-to-men sei
namely, the elevation of vaudevi
artists in the eyes of the public.
Mr. Stone is probably th* only act
head of a theatrical organization v
has assumed office with the unanim
backing and good will of both the
tists and the managen.
