Premiere Danscuse at 16
For a number oT years petite Marilynn Miller,
who will appear In "The Passing Show of 1914"
at the Lyric Theatre next week, was unable to
dance in New Tork because of the vigilance of
the Gerry Society.
The Gerry Society, as you may know, does
not encourage "child prodigies" on the stage.
NcAv Marilynn, said to be one of the most mar
velous of dancers, was a child prodigy, a real
"Infant phenomenon," after the standard set by
Marilynn was 16 the first day of September.
She danced when she was 4.
Miss .Miller never appeared in New York be
fore last June, when she made an extraordinary
hit at the Winter Garden.
Marilynn made her debut with her father,
mother and sister at the Lakeside Purk, Day
ton, Ohio, on August 20, 1&03. One afternoon,
while tho Millers were playing In Dayton, llttl
Marilynn Miller, then 4 jears old. was taken
to a moving picture show. One of the pictures
was of a famous premiere danseuse. Marilynn,
on arriving home, told her mother that she
thought cho could dance on her toes as well as
the lady ehe had sen in tho plctuios. To the
.urprlse of Caro Miller and his wife their little
daughtci was veiy soon dancing around th
room on her toes.
So It was that little Marilynn became on- of
the Columbians, which after that week were
billed as "The Columbian Trio, with Mademoi
selle Sugarlump." The name "Mademoiselle
Sugarlump" was after a tim dropped from the
"billing," and the Miller family became known
as the "Columbian Four" father, mother and
two daughters. Owing to the child labor act,
"The Columbian Four" was unable to appear in
many of the larger cities, since Marilynn Miller
was so joung. As there are no restrictions as
to age In other countries, the Millers played
much of the time during the last ten or more
years In CanadiffBlaiid, the Viest Indies.
South .ea Islam Han ail ,ind Australia. Be- '
fore last June the nearest that Marilynn Millor
came io appearing In New York was Christmas
week. 150S. when "The Columbian Four" played
a week in Biooklyn. The Gerry Society then
interfered, and so little Marilynn, unabla to
dance, was compelled to walk through her part.
Last May the Millers w3re appearing at the
Lotus Club In Imdon, Lee Shubert was abroad
seeking novelties, nnd was greatly astonished
at the wonderful cleverness of Marilynn Miller.
He at once sent to Carp Miller, the young lady's
father, and arranged for her appearance at the
FLASHES FROM "STARS"
The arrival of Henry Arthur Jones In this
country to dliect rehearsals of the new play
which he has written for Murgartt Illington,
will complcto the trio of distinguished British
plnywrlghts now In America. The other two
are Sir J. M. B.irrle and A. E. W. Mason. The
plots of both the new Jones plays nro shrouded
In a good deal of mstery. The greatest of all
Mr, Jones' successes, "The Slher King," has
been successfully played in London by II. B.
Irving at the Strand.
Bruce McRae, who is stnircd in "Nearly
Married, " has had a varied, vigorous career.
Mr. McRae whs born In India. Ills father
was a civil engineer in tho British military
service. At the nse of 16 he wanted to adopt
a stage career, but the probability of quick
wealth in Now Zealund caused him to start In
business there as a sheep herder. Ho suc
ceeded only moderately, however, and then
proceeded to Australia, where he secured work
In a meat packing plant.
Tirlns of this, in a fortnight he shipped be
fore tho mast for two years as an able sea
man, went into the Australian bush as a cow
puncher and then became a Government sur
veyor. Going back Into the cattle business, he was
sent to Laramie, Wyo to a big ranch, where
he herded steers for two years.
Then he went on the stage. Charles Froh
man was producing Sardou's "Thcrmldor" in
New York, and tho straightforward, manly
approach of the sun-t,inncd youth from the
West just suited a part. Although Sardou's
drama failed. McRae came out of the experi
Nora Hayes returned to New York recently
and dlnd in a restaurant not far from Broad
way. Scores of women and managers were
seen to go up to her table and request her own
assurance that sho was still alive. "I knew
I was awfully popular with all my husbands,"
said Miss Bnycs, "but I never knew it was so
alluring with the general public at large to
have been thought a dead one."
