William Hedge's new three-act comedy,
"Deg Leve." formerly called "Beware
of Dogs," tells about n veryscstlmable
young man (Mr. Hedge himself, of
course) who. te nurse an Invalid sister
back te health, takes a deg farm nnd
gets into all herts of trouble net only
through the things that the prize dogs

Stanley The city's harshest critic of
the photoplay should see this bill. It
would convert him if anything could.
There arc se many geed things thnt
a first choice is difficult, but "The
Four Seasons," a remarkable nature
study, comes pretty near te carrying
away the palm. Here, Indeed, is the
screen novelty of the year. The con
ception, credited te Charles Urban nnd
Raymond L. Dltmars, is worthy of
high praise; its execution Is just as
Animals. Insects, fish and birds, in
cluding some of the shyest species
known, are the actors in this remark

against the changing background of the
four seasons. Ludicrous benr cubs and

the spring setting, and the great
awakening of Nnturc Is actually out

meadows. The dramatisatien of a
thunder storm is the feature of the
summer scenes, and the comluaef win

scries of pictures that arc revelatory
and all tee short.
In addition, there Is a condensed ver
sion of Gcraldlnc Farrar's version of
"Carmen." But don't get the idea by
the word "condensed" that the result
Is a jumpy, Jerky hash of a (crren
classic. Instead it is a compact,
smooth-running, spirited unfolding of

Accompanied by Bizet's strains this
film is ever a delight and the girls the
"flapper fanettes") can have an oppor
tunity of seeing Wnllace Held with
"slders" and a spirit of revenge.
Then, there Is Hareld Lloyd's latest
comedy. "A Sailor Made Man." It is
longer than its predecessors and mav
net be ns continuously amusing, but it
is easily one of his best. Where the
fun pauses for a minute nn Interesting
and coherent story with thrills nnd an
attractive background take its place.
Hareld is show as a youth with
plenty of money and mere nerve. Told
by his girl's father that he must get
te work and quit being a loafer, he en
lists in the navy. He and the girl meet
again en the' ether side of the world,
nnd when an Indian princeling kidnaps
her Hareld stages a breath-taking and
laugh-producing rescue.
Altogether it is one of these rare bills
in which there are no lagging, boring
