If there Is any such thing ns a law of compensation In the realm of the theatre, 'It has certainly been exercised In the simultaneous presentation of these two pieces. The Dumas comedy Is the nlr lest of footllght trifles, but It lias .not lost Its savor In more than half a cen tury, while Its delectable quality U em ' phaslzed the more in contrast to the maudlin mouthlngB which passed for drama heaven save the term!

The history of this Dumas comedy of manners was recapitulated at some . length In this column one week ago. if and as noted then It haK been presented by some of our most distinguished play em. The urrent revival leaves noth- Intr to be desired ln histrionic artistry. 'V while the exquisite t'roductlon is espe- v dally pleasing to tho eye after a picin- ora of scampea wartime scenery Henry Miller's portrayal of the mellow and seasoned Count Is Illuminated by many adroit little touches that escape tho casual eye. But the freshest and greenest qf the laurel leaves belong to Miss Chatterton as tUe Countess girl wife who falls In love with the debonair. f'.f cosmopolitan husband with whom she v nas oeen uniicu in it omnia- ui uun- venlence" and sends her more youth- ' ful lover about his business. Without any loss of winsome glrllshness. Miss Chatterton brings to her portrayal a if, t variety of mood and expression, a ma turity of touch that were not even fore- shadowed ln "The Rainbow" or "Daddy-Long-Legs." With "A Mnrriigo of Convenience" Miss Chatterton has ar rived, and It Is a pleasure to acclaim her. CHIEF among tho charms of "Olorl anna," the single musical comedy production of the week. In Its exquisite daintiness of presentation and the skill of its "composition," as painters say Tho plot Is not strikingly novel, but pas tel delicacy and originality of the "sets" commend them to the most discriminat ing, .while Kleanor Painter's Ingratiating and opulent soprano Is of n sort heard too Infrequently outside of opera. Itu- ,- dolf Frltnl's score Is musiclanly and TV.nH n HA.i.tn n n .1 nllnn.lk.H tt I .. n. . .. Jtejiii attractive. Tho entire production has a jfTrt, certain quiet charm not ordinal lly asso- (- ' elated with musical comedy. tt t tM FEW subjects Intrigue the curiosity of the playgolng public, particularly women, more than the Kges of popular players. To laymen who come In casual contact with them one of the remarkable facts about their remarkable calling Is tha way ln which the players ke p their youth. The "Divine Sarah" and our own John Drew come readily to mind as notable examples. Hut the Buhject came up most recently this weak afteV wit nessing Henry Miller at the Oarrlclc. over an Informal d'sh of spaghetti with John tt. Peltrtt, the ery excellent pub licity director of "The Masquerader," ln which Guy Bates Post will be seen at the Adelphl next week. The plajers, uggested Mr. Peltret whimsically, are all Peter Pans whoneer grow up, and ! ftrthu'lfh lntm,fnna,l fr Pnot na n V- shining product of tho good fairy's magic wand of eternal youth. Presuma bly, as the years go, Guy Bates Post Is not old. But a goodly number of years ! Intervenes between the beginning of his career with Kyrle Bellew and Mrs, James Brown Potter and his present-day "Masquerader." ' ! itr. &!' $.'. . H- a Y SITTING opposite the actor one might easily take him to be a man In his early thirties. He docs not look like nn actor, but rather like a business man "With inclinations to literature. He, Is very keenly alive, he Is very earnest. "I think the reason the people of the Stage stay so oiing lu duq to the fact that they live so much. In tnmonow," aid Mr. Post when this subject came Up "The actor, as a rule. Is usually ahead of his times. He lhes and dreams and works In tomcrrowland. And liv ing In tomorrowland ho forgets today, and It Is remembering today nnd jes terday that makes folk put on age. They say that tomorrow Is a day which never comes and today was a day which always was. Therefore, In living In and by tomorrow the actor forgets all nbout today, and so time ctases to pass for him. ing things lust ni the little tikes do whom one sees along the wny Intent on their pl.o they create a spirit of re.illtj. and If they could nlaln that same element of being able to forgot time nnd Its passing, they, too, would seem to be nlunH oung. "It Is not trouble or pain or hard work whlth makes folk grow old, It Is iimcmberlng the passing of the years and marking from day to day that tiiey ale growing farther and farther from their childhood. Hemnlnlng children In thought all their yenrs, tho players hae no time for backward glances nnd in this way forget there Is such a thing as age ' IT HAS been a long time In the "movie" world since a new i-tar ban been added to the INt of names familiar the public Within the week there hae been Introduced the names of I.lla I.ee nnd Fred Stone on the Paramount-Air craft programs and I.aily Tten Mel Is scheduled for a first nppearance In film at the Stanle next week. There are barely a hundred names which the movie fan Known and only a few star of any Importance before the public today These Mars have risen to their preent heights because the public liked their work and the compinles heralded them as "the Treat nnd only." Tho result of this ha been that their sal aries hie risen with popularity, and now the producers an- wondering If they have not made a mistake. In order to test tho public ns to tho worth of tho stars, many of tho com panies have arranged with these plajers to han them form their own companies and then have their productions re leased In their own name. This means that the real worth of the star will hereafter be tho ultimate test It tho Mars fall, they will fall by the wayside and become the supporting player of younger stars or drop out of tho films forever. "IAN ou name over the players who a J few jears ago were the heroes nnd heroines of the films'' Where have they gone nnd why are they not appearing In the pictures todny? The answer Is n simple one nnd Is summed up ln a word nhlllt) No one can hope to attain the center of the camera's lens who has not tho ability to retain that position. Just now there Is a scramble among the producers as to who will se cure the1 future Mary PIckford attrac tions. Her contract with the Artcraft Company has expired and her mother, who supervises the huslness arrange ments of "America's Sweetheart," Is In New York considering: offers for tho .future placing of Miss PIckford's sub jects. If the prices asked by this star are met, U will mean that tho public will have to pay higher admission charges to see her productions, for she Is asking a huge price for her films In view of this fact. It Is plainly to be seen that the companies arc anxious to develop new players who may bo had at a lower price to replace these stars The presentation of 1,11a I.ee Is typical of the tendency to present play era In the films on their own merits without any special heinldlng, and it remains for the public to decide whether they want, new faces or aro content with tho old favorites There will al wajs bo revivals, however, of tho films which were mndo before tho downfall of the stars, and, unllko the stage pro ductions, the original cast Is to be found In the movies. fTUII 3 screens have shown players from almost every couritry, but It remained for the Betzwood Film Company to brine forward a new actress for the films. She Is Lady Tsen Mel, a Chinese girl, who heretofore has confined her work to the vaudeville theatres. It may be recalled that the first appear ance of SeiHUe Hayakawa, tho Japanese acfor. was lu tho supporting cast of "The CJicat," In which Fannie Ward made her appearance. hlnco then he has been a popular Idol and Is now making his own productions. THE Government has decided that th "movies" aro essential and has se lected the scteen as one of the best means of spreading propaganda about viar alms, drives and loans. The Gov ernment Is 'also In the movlo manufac turing business now and Is releasing films showing the activities of tho boys who are fighting "over theio" as well as th manifold war activities here. There Is one thing, however, which tho Gov'ernment might do, and that Is to exempt all men In uniform from paying the war tax on both theatrical and motion picture attractions. Mnttrelsl' Walnut-.. HENRY MILLER, in "A Mnrrioc of Convenience',' Garricfc BELASCO DISCARDS LOWERED CURTAIN Subtly Changing Lights Alone Tell the Story of a Night in "Tiger Rose"' For the flight of time In the action of a play the law of the theatie Is a lowered curtain No producer hitherto has ever Indicated the passage of a night In full view of nn audience with out the use of some device or ntir- talnment to bold the Interest until David Belasco, substituted (.Imply dnrkiuss in his presentation of "Tiger I!oe" which comes to the Broad. The nearest approach that has ver been mado to this Innovation In pres enting Wlllard Mack's stor.v of the great Northwest was by Mr Belasco himself In his presentation of "Madame Butter fly" The curtain remained up for four teen minutes during the actlo'i nf the Japanese tragedy while the night was supposed to steil by But during tint period, a forty-two-plece orchestra held the attention of the ainlence In "Tlgtr Itose," however, theie Is offered nothing of music, speteh or ac tion to hold the ntunllnn of the audi ence, while for the six and a half minutes tint represent the passing of a night the stage million in darkness, while the heroine Is guarding her lover from the Itoysil Northwesl mounted pollcnnan who hns trapped them In the cabin In the Canadian woods.

DUAL ROLES TEST OF ACTOR'S VERSATILITY Guy Bates Post Employs Mansfield Methods in Por traying Characters The runl role Is not popular among players. Its Interpretation calls for n display of talent which few possess. When Illchard Walton Tully selected "The Mnsquernder" for Guy Bates Post the star welcomed the dual role of John Chllcote and John Loder because he be lieved that It would enhance his ver satility. The list nf dual roles Is a limited one. The last seen here was the admirable performance of K, H. Sothern In "The. Prisoner of Zenda." Among the other plays which have called for doublo In terprctatlons are Sir Henry Irvlng'a Du boso and Lusurquo In "Tho Lyon's Mnll," a characterization which ranked high ln the list of that great actor's achievements. Irving also played in "Tho Corslcan Brothers," which Itobert Mantell made very familiar to our play goers of another generation, and Man tell also did a dual role In the piece called "A Face In the Moonlight." "Dr. Jekyll nnd Mr. Hyde," which Mansfield made his own, was not a dual part, as the rhaiacter was represented to be one man matamnrphosed by a drug. In one respect .Mr. Post's playing ln "Tho MiiMiuerader'' i similar to Mans field's work In "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." It wns generally supposed that the latter. In making the change from one to the -other, also altered his make up On the. ntlthnjlty.of.hls stage man ager for several seasons It Is stated that he dld-itiotr-do so. He secured the Illusion of transition by disarranging his hair a bit. ahd Ahejus.q qf a mobile face nnd well-controlled body. Mr. Post as Chllcote nnd Loder does tlvo same thing in reverting' from one character to the other . ACTRESS IS REPORTER Geneve Cole Writes for Heme Papers While Touring A combination of musical comedy work on the s-age and practical news paper writing Is quite so unusual as to be n real novelty. Yet It has been tried, and Is being successfully followed by Geneve Cole, of the "Leave It to Jane" company, at the Opera House. In cidentally, Miss Cole, In making this un ual combination, was Influenced to try Is because she wanted to do her bit.

She received the precious missive for her enterprise and patriotism In stimulating the sale of thrift stamps throughout tho country. Lady Tsen Mel, who Is well known ln vaudeville, received many requests for autographed photographs. Love for her adopted country gave her a bright and patriotic thought. Why not have her manv friends pay for her photo graphs with thrift stamps? she reasoned. She acted upon the Idea, and after Its success Lady Tsen Mel received the let ter from tho President expressing his appreclatrnn.

Miss Painter Is thoroughly American. She was born In Ohio and her early musical training vvas begun under American vachers. Her voice early developed that quality which Is only a degree from grand opera calibre, and It was decided that she should go abroad and continue her musical educa tion. She began under Madamo Nlklsch, wife of the famous conductor, Arthur Mklsch, nnd Arthur Ixiwe, and later hnd the honor of of being "the scholarship pupil" of the great LIUI Lehmann. Her first opportunity came when she was eneaged for "Madame Butterfly" at the Charlottenburg Opera House. She was engaged for an cntlro opera season at Covent Garden, London, where she opened tho role of "Musetta" In Puccini's "Boheme." Many offers from European producers promptly followed, bus the outbreak of the war decided her to return homo nnd take up concert work. But Andreas Dlppel had heard her sing while nbroad, and engaged her for tho leading role In his American pro duction of Gulliver's "Lilac Domino." A successful season In this operetta per suaded Miss Talntcr to stay on the musical' comedy stage, and the following season she appeared ln John Cort's "Princess PaV In 1917 Miss Painter ventured Into straight comedy, nnd ap peared In "Art nnd Opportunity." She has now returned to musical comedy. TRIXIE BACK FROM CAMP Trlxle Frlganza has completed her ntertalnment tour of the various army cantonments, nnd Is once more ln vaude ville. She has capitalized her recent experiences, however, for her offering at Keith's next week will be called "Camp." The comedienne does not Intend to tarry long In "the varieties." Sho has already made plans to return to the musical comedy stage, which has occu pied the greater portion of her time during recent years. But "Miss Frl ganza Insists that she Is fond of vaude ville because In a musical show she Is forced to stick to her lines, but In vaude ville she Is nt liberty to do as she plenses as loig as she amuses her nudlences.
