It rejdlccs Ih in ifrelamatory title. "Hello. Broadway 1" Plotless Itself, U burlesques tho plotless nes of musical comedy. The reviewer Of the Tribune thus explains It: "Tho plou it -was learned nt tho very becln nlnif. waa concealed In a hatbOX.' T6 get at the plot (?r the hotbox) the many principals pursued Cohan and Collier through a labyrinth of tho moBt dellght iulljV clover travesties on almost all of the? current plays on Broadway. And then1, at the very end, the hatbox was round to be quite empty." The Cohan review is not so much a matter of satirizing- acting and imitating the factors the methods of tho Weber fields as a burlesquo of plays and play wright Even Mr. Cohan's own "Miracle Man" cornea in for ridicule "The Hcenes," says tho ,TImes- "shift with dlzzylwr rapidity. The great 'court room scene or 'On Trial,' fof instance, Is proceeding; smoothly enough when one of tho witnesses rings the bell on his wrist wafch. The juror rUn off with the! Jury box1 and in tho orifuston the place becomes another room, where the dreamer In 'My Lady's Dress' goes to sleep. Then amid sudden darkneae and to thunderous noise of stage ma 'chlrfery, she la transformed to the day dreamer in 'The Phantom Rival,' brasen !y Inviting- Leo Dltrichstofn to come in from the street. And in walks the familiar figure which turns oUt to be Mr Cohan himself (very thinly dis guised). He Is Inclined to admit that it is a bad Imitation, but ha thinks it's about time for Mm to get even for the Imita tion's of him that every one has felt ires" to .give these many years past." 'The reviewers agree that "Hullo, - Broadway I" is tho best fun on that crowded thoroughfare. Henry Arthur Jones Tries Again TlTough failure after fatluro has piled up , since 'The Hypocrites," Henry Arthur -Jones keeps' on, trying. And mah agara keep on producing his tries. The latest la called "The Lie" and came' to tho American stage Christmas Eve, whqn Margaret Illlngton acted it. at the Harris Theatre. New York. As with most of Mr, Jones' later plays, "craftsmanship" and all the falderal of the successful, playright of tho.lDth century stick out far more strongly than life and Ita people and Ita .purposes. In the present casp, lie seems to have achieved some exciting climaxes, but only by constructing an elaborate and not very original chain of events, The ilo Is the He of a younger slater, i tyf puts off the motherhood of her own ; legitimate ohlld upon her sister. The v lu,t' according to Mr Jones, Is the loaejotia, jpuitor to the Innocent slater, the v Wn!njr of the same suitor by the Hor, anJt- flr.aHy, of course, a great denuncia tion noane when the truth comes out. The reviewer of the Times, speaking of- the elaborate and cautious ingenuity o ho play, says 'The whole structure rau upon a false statement and the truth lk kept hidden from all those It most vitally and tragically concerns, not mere ly through tho'siierice at the Uar. but by a. series' 0 unintentionally misleading &'smmMmmsmmsim cms w rw v &. s& agaWKi Jgj' VflaV ffc.-qhE??iftfcf'3gafdp.'

The Usual Thing1 The third of the five pew productions that blessed New York the past week was a musical comedy after the usual style, "Lady -Luxury." The Tribune gives a bare and sufficient outllno of Its scant virtues! "Miss Claire Is pleasing to look upon In a gentle way. ' Hlio has a tiny volco which Is ocar and true, nnd she dances agreeably, , I'erhnps that Is all that one should ask of A 'featured' player, but Jt scarcely Seems enough for 'Lady Luxury ' That mhslcal piece, so the pro gram Informs, hns been made as to book and lyrics by Tilda Johnson loung, nuthorf of severnt plays, nnd by William Schroe- uer, as composer. It has situations amusing- la themselves and entertaining llhes set to ambitious muslo. If neither scorn, to lie mada the most of,, perhaps repeated performances by tho actors will supply the necessary dash and go which now seem lacking." .

Of course, the true and noble hero with sombrero nnd bad manners wins In tha cndi "Tonight's tho Night" Before retarding tho last"- of the new Broadway productions It Is enough to say of the next to the last, Lydta Lopo kowa. the Hussion dancer, In a mild lit tle comedy. "Justj Herself," by Ethel Watts Mumford, that It proved no more exciting In Now York than It had In Boston. Its mild little life will probably bo short. Tor contra, the English musical com edy. "Tonight's the Night," which brought a great many very skilful Eng lish players to the Shubert, may live a good while. And It may not. The re viewers are none too definite. They have praise for the English chorus and for George OrossmllK. James Ulakoly, Mau rice Farkoa nnd Emmy Wohlen, but they are not so exuberant over Mr. nubcnB music or the book. Tho story of "Tonight's the Night." says tho Times, Is tho story of the pld farce, "Pink Dominoes-," which has been done- over for this occasion by Fred Thompson. There are two acts. The first is In tho house of Mr. and Mrs. Car raway at Maidenhead, and the second net. which is In three scenes, takes place In the foyer of the boXes at the Boyal Opera House, Covent Garden Marketj and the flat of Daisy de Montne. of the PIcca dllty Theatre". TJfe sCrhts are" all well done and the piece moves along swiftly nnd reasonably tuneful, but, after all, the girls are the things which count In "Tonight's the Night." nnd these Eng lish young women would carry almost any show aloi)g to success even In these perilous times of the theatre.

David Belasco, America's foremost dramatlo producer, griys: Probably the two greatest popular ising elements of the motion picture for the general publlo are lis speed and Ita scope.' One "reel" of pictures, projected In the spneo of about 15 minutes, Includes more action than the peopIO who posed In tho picture could possibly present themselves be fOto the same audience In tho course of an. ehllt-e oVenlng. And the stfope of this same "reel" may be of almost Incredible magnitude Without being either eOnfusInrt or Inconsistent. Wherever tho story travels the scen ery travels, too, simply as the normal setting of the narrative.. The action need not be forced to lit tho locale, for everything the human eye can ever see Is food also for the eye of tho camera, which sees once nnd reg isters forever. Tho human pantomimic art, either in Its strictly dramatlo phases or In the guise of Interpretative dancing with complex musical accompani ments, has been for the most part an attraction only to limited audiences of especially appreciative people. But tho Bllent drama of the screen per fectly clear and Intelligible even to the ehlld-ls the most nll-cmbraclng form of theatrical entertainment ever discovered, Just as It Is the one form of entertainment worthy Of respect which can be offered to tho most peo plo at tho minimum of admission charge. A most wonderful recent motion picture Improvement has beeri the manner In which numerous "titles" or printed explanations are being eliminated, so that now whole "acts" are almost entirely silent In respect to the printed word ns well as tho spoken word. As scenario men be come moro skilled In making the se quence of action self-explanatory, and as tho publlo becomes moro accus tomed to rend without words. It Is not Impossible that "sub-titles" may be done ntay with almost entirely. Silence seems to mo such a nntural attribute of tho moving picture ex cept for the welcome relief of appro priate muslo that tho efforts to syn chronize pictures nnd photographic olce records Is not, to my mind, of special Importance. Tho filming of tho Bclaico successes Is not to my mind nny "commercial concession." The art of the screen has risen far above that stigma. It Is the means of making th6 works of a lifetime rench hundreds of thou sands of pcoplo nocr before Included In tho nudlcnco of these productions: a means of reaching tho four ends of tha earth and all the peoples of the globe In the silent but Intensely strong langungo of tho actions that speak louder than words. Georsa D. Baker, a director of Vita- graph comedies, was a real "trooper" In his dim and misty past. Ills latest story tells how ho extracted blood from a stone. In the gulso of a hard-henrtod small-town opera house manngcr, to en able him to play a Christmas date. Mr. Baker was manager and star of a small "rep" company touring Indian nnd Oklthoma Territories, playing mostly ono-nlght stands, when the usual slump In tho theatrical business preceding the Christmas holidays' found the company In a bad plight. The day before Christ mas tho company arrived In a omnll town in Indian Territory, with one B-cent-pleco to its credit, tho said nickel reposing lonesomcly In tho pocket of Mr. Baker. Business was unusually bad In this par ticular town, and the local manager, sensing something wrong, disappeared be foro cQuntlng.up time, leaving his treas urer to settle with tho company. The grpss receipts totaled V& C5, of which Mr. Baker's' share was $1 i, but whorT he tried to collect the money ho was pre sented wjth $13 II of receipted bills, In cluding amounts for extrn advertising, C.(0. D. printing, baggage hauling, etc., and Mr. Baker left the theatro with the nickel with which, somo two hours be fore, he had entered It, Bright and early tho next morning a stilt hunt was Instituted for the local munager, nnd upon being found, an hour of peadlngand (many flowery promises extracted enough money to pay pressing hotel bills and the railroad fare to the next town, but the local theatrical mag nate Insisted on sending the baggage C. O. D In care of the railroad company. When Mr. Baker alighted from the train In the town where they were to play on Christmas day the' first person lie met was the manager ot the opera house. Hardly waiting to say how-de-do, tho local manager entertained Mr, Baker with a proposition to buj the two perform ances outright, and the day was saved.
