about $5,000,000; that another Italian picture, "Quo Vadis," costing
$150,000, has produced about $8,000,000.
Through the offices of Gen. GarabaWi, an alliance was made with
the Universal Film Company by which the great producing plant at
Universal City, near Los Angeles, and all the theaters it controls,
will be at the disposal of the new company, chartered at $5,000,000,1
and to be known as the Roma-New York.
The deal means an international welding of all that is best in
(movie production. American film stars and directors will be trans
| ported to European studios and vice versa. Thousands of new cinema
| actors will be needed, and the artistic side of the cinema industry
I has been given a great impetus.
Directors who understand the national tastes of the various coun
! tries will mold the spirit of the films. The great European-Asiatic
fields will be supplied?and, in truth, the movie will be carried to all
! parts of the world. As an illustration of the manner in which the
j international field had been overlooked. Gen. Garabaldi said:
"If every theater in Italy were to be closed ami the entire output
piven to the near Orient and Russian fields, we could not satisfy
| within 40 per cent the demands that are made for the moving pic
! tures in those markets."
Announcement comes from PoIPs Theater that the Avenue play
' house will open its regular 1919-20 season next Sunday with Rachel
! Crothers' play, "A Little Journey,*' as the attraction. "A Little Jour
ney" was originally scheduled for presentation at the F street Shu
! bert house, the Garrick, but occupation of the Garrick for the month
of September by the Garrick Players resulted in the switch to Poli's
of this production. Some of the early bookings are a new play, "Dou
ble Harness," produced by Joseph Klaw; a new Chinese musical
; comedy, "The Rose of China," under the direction of F. Ray Com
stock and Morris Gest; "Luck of the Navy," another Comstock and
Gest attraction; "Monte Cristo, Jr.,w the big Winter Garden success;
j "Up in Mabel's Room" and "30 East." During the coming season
; such stars and attractions as Sothern and Marlowe, A1 Jolson in
"Sinbad," "The Shubert Gayeties of 1919," the new edition of "Chu
Chin Chow," "The Passing Show of 1919." an elaborate revival of
j "Florodora," with a cast including several stars; "Yes, Uncle," a new
; musical novelty; "Mr. Manhattan," with Lawrence Grossmith; Mc
| Intyre and Heath in "Hello, Alexander;" "Oh, What a Girl," now
j current at the Shubert Theater, New York; "East Is West," "Scan
dal," "Please Get Married," "Take It From Me," "The Unknown
Purple," "The La-dy in Red" and others which are now being booked
by the Shuberts.
The coming season at Poli's should be the most important and
j successful this famous playhouse has ever had.
