The Story of a Proxy Scenario A stout gentleman of benevolent aspect watched the unusual line that colled out from tho ticket window of a theatre In Chestnut street yesterday. You would hardly have suspected him of being one of those who market their Imaginations for e. snlnry. Otherwise put hi did not look like a "rainbow chaser." "Rainbow chaser, did you say7" ex claimed this lino watcher. " 'Glant-ktlllng Jack' Is a better way to designate our troubles tn getting the picture this crowd Is out to see. This part is a rainbow all right. But It all looked moro Hko a ty phoon until that day when, our task ac complished, wo stepped softly and swiftly out of Italy, lest authority No. 3023 should decide at the 11th hour to confis cate our films." Tho speaker was Edwin S. Porter, and he referred, of course, to civic compli cations In getting a photographic present ment of Hall Calne's "Eternal City" on Italian soil. "It Is n book absolutely tahoeed by tho Italian authorities," continued Mr. Porter. "Thov regard It as mlschlcf-breed-lng propagandist fiction, striking nt their faith and their Ideals. It Is. of course. nothing1 of the sort. It Is Just a rattling good romance. Yet you may bo certain that when our Famous riayers Company reached Rome we kept mum about Hall Calno nnd his work. Wo told tho au thorities that wo'd just come over to get a little Italian lovo story In tho proper setting for tho Americans, who so loved everything really Italian. " 'Charming,' replied tho authorities. " 'Of courso tho Slgnorl will wish to file their complete scenario with us that we may help them In every wny we can!' "Here was n rub. My co-dlrcctor, Mr. Ford, and myself did some of the hard est thinking wo ever did. In 10 days' time we had completed a fake scenario that explained our socialistic mob scenes nnd accounted for our liberal need of the Vatican and other forbidden locali ties. It was a scenario in every respect the dramatic opposite of the one we meant to act before tho camera.

Read These Extracts Then Come and See These Wonderful Moving Pictures. From the North American. KAISER IS APPLAUDED IN FORREST WAR FILM From the Public Ledger. KAISER IN FILM HERE "War Pictures at Forrest Show Actual Battle Scenes. Views of Germany's Ruler Elicit Enthusiasm From Spectators. DEPICT OTHER NATIONS Intimate views of tho Ualscr. together with pictures of fighting In the tranches, drew npplauso from n large audience nt the Forrest Theater yesterday afternoon, when n scries of films depleting the Euro pean struggle were exhibited for tho first time In this city. Tho review of troops, In which several thousand of the latter were visible from time to time, by tho German ruler, created what seemed to be genuine patriotic fer vor. Spectators loudly clapped tho scenes In which he figured, and such scenes ap parently caused tho most outspoken ap preciation of the afternoon. While not epoch-making, other pictures ns well came in for their share of Inter est. Among them wero Crown Prince Jtuprecht and his stnff leaving for the front, a regiment chaplain holding serv ices, details of besieged Antwerp, flashes of armored motorcars manned by Bel gians and n German field battery In action. A French bayonet charge and nn at tempted flnnklng movement provided a thrill or two, while Red Cross dogs Book ing wounded soldiers after a battle pleased the humanitarians. Thero were nlso vivid sights of ambu lances transporting tho wounded from tho front, tho striking of a water tower by a shell, tho sultan of Turkey rovlewlng his navy, Germans building n pontoon bridge, French prisoners bound for a de tention camp and tho arrival of tho Brit ish life guard, the later evoking plaudits galore. The latest motion pictures of tbn war, which nre being presented for tho first time In the. United States nt the Forrest Theatro under tho auspices of tho IIvbs ino I,kdoer, give 11 comprehensive nnd intimate view of the German nnny In field and In camp. A few of tho pictures show Belgian nnd French troops In action, but most of thorn were taken within the German lines nnd show various episodes ; from tho Knlser's review of n division on a road In France anil u Unvnrlan cavalry chargo to tho departure of recruits from 1 Berlin and a Frusslan ofllccr eating fcoup. Tho plcturo of tho Kaiser reviewing his troops Is tho most remarkable ot the group. The enmera wns placed less than two yards from the War Lord nnd It cnught not only every motion ho made, but nlso every expression of tho troops ns they goose-stepped past. Tho nilora- tlon with which tho soldiers fattened tholr eyes on their monarch until somo of them even forgot to keep step awoke a respon sive thrill In every person In the bouse. Other pictures filled with tho dash of war wero a Bavarian cavalry charge, the blowing up of u bridge over tho River I,ys nnd a light between the French and tho Germans for another bridge over the samo river. The pictures of heavy German guns In nctlon nnd of Belgian quick-firers nnd armored trains nro sueh as have grown familiar through previous photographs of tho war. There Is ono glimpse of German soldiers In a French village picnicking with French women nnd children, nnd the per formance closes with a vlow of tho monu ment which tho Austrlans already havo erected to their dead. Tho pictures show tho llfo of the Gorman nrmy tt Its best and are likely to arouso a friendly feeling toward tho Kaiser's troops In all who see them. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. War Pictures at Forrest Motion pictures of the conflict now rag ing In Kuropo were on view at the Forrest last night nnd an nudlonce of large pro portions watched with deep Interest tho ever-changing scenes, Somo ot the pic tures sent thrills through tho body, so stilklngly real nnd full of actual war atmosphere were they. The majority of the pictures aro said to have been taken by a corps of German photographers at tho command of tho Emperor, who Is de sltous of preserving the tragedies of the struggle for futuro generations ns showing the chivalry and valor of his countrymen. In Bomo instances tho camera men took desperate chances to secure the object of the quest, tho pictures showing tho hur ried movement to escape tho hoofs of the galloping horses. Many of tho scenes de pleted tho havoc wrought by the shelling ot cities, tho wanderings of the unfor tunnto refugees searching for a place to call homo ! tho battlo raging between tho contesting armies and many other Intimate glimpses of tho terrific struggle. An at tempt was made to describe somo of tho pictures, but tho lecturer was scarcely sufficiently conversant with his subject to undertake tho task. irom the Eveninn Bulletin. War Films at the Forrest Scenes from war torn Europe were shown with startling reallBm nt tho Forrest The atre last night, In a series of films, most of which were exhibited for the first time In this city. While the usual request was made that applause be omitted, In con formity with a strict observance of neu trality, the appearance of the Kaiser ns the principal figure In a review of German troops proved too etrong for the restraint of aerman sympathizers In tho audience. On the other hand, when the English guards, who went to aid the Belgians tn the defense of Antwerp, appeared on the screen, those who lean toward the cause of the Allies gave a warm round of hand clapping. A charge of Bavarian cavalry across an open field which brought the horses close up to the camera was a prime number of the program, while the German heavy artillery, In action, was another unusual picture. Many of the films were taken during the bombardment and fall of Ant werp. Among them were action pictures of both the Belgian and German troops, the destruction by the Belgians of a bridge across the Blver Scheldt after the evacua tion ot Antwerp, and the burning of the great oil tanks at Hoboken, near Antwerp. Another reel showed the heavy guns on board a British battleship shelling Belgian coast towns occupied by the Germans. Crown Prince Rupprecht, of Bavaria, was ono of the notables who appeared. There were many films depicting the men In the trenches, and scenes in the rear of the great armlos. While soma of the films obviously had been posed for, there were others in which the action was apparently unstudied and taken close to the front, within the region of danger. From the Record. War Pictures Forrest Numerous startling features of the Eu ropean war wero vividly portrayed by motion pictures shown nt tho Forrest Theatre yesterday afternoon and evening. Many of these pictures wcro taken under fire, and In somo Instances tho operators of tho picture machines had their Instru ments destroyed by shots. The pictures wero almost entirely confined to the Bel glum field of operations and covered a wide variety of movements, from tho transportation of troops to tho caro of the wounded In hospitals and tho occupations of prisoners In tho detention camps. There were numerous thrills In tho views of actual conflict, where lines of op posing BOldlery met slaughter. An excel lent Idea of the modern method of con-, ducting a great war was given to ad vantage. The trenches wero not over looked, nor the commissary arrangements by which the armies nre enabled to live and to refresh themselves and prepare for further hardships. A notable film depicted the Kaiser re viewing his troops at the front, The Kaiser and his officers stood along a road while company after company of his fight ing men passed rapidly by. Pictures taken on a battleship showed how the Immense guns are handled, and how destructive la their work upon the towns attacked. Thero wero views of German and Belgian cavalry in action and a long line of field batteries, which pic ture, more than any other of the series, conformed with tho popular Idea of a "battle line." These pictures servo admirably to sup plement and to Illustrate the news the world Is getting of the great struggle, and they are better than any word Ue. srIptlons of the details ot the destruc tion that has been wrought, espeolally in Belgium.
