Tivoli—Ensign Moore s
Navy Band and “Bill."
A program of unusual excellence Is
offered at the Tivoli this week, with
Ensign Al Moore and his Navy Or
chestra and a screen feature entitled
“Bill" as the headliners.
Moore's Orchestra is a hit —no tnis
take about it. Twelve youngsters
witli overflowing- enthusiasm put a
flavor into their offerings which is
exceedingly likable. They were re
called time and again hy yesterday's
audiences. Interspersed with their
instrumental offerings are a few
songs and a dance.

marks of the Gallic genius for de
veloping from tiny threads of human
misery a story that seizes and holds
interest. Without a “love theme,”
with no villain and scarcely any
I plot, the picture tells the simple story
of an old vegetable peddler of Paris.
This role is played by Maurice De Fe
raudy, with a realism which stirs now
and strange feelings of admiration.
The story was adapted to the screen
from Anatole France's "The Majesty of
Justice.” As a character study it is
splendid, and as a story it lias in it
human elements which cannot but
j recall to those who are familiar with
i it that classic gem of French short
stories, "The Piece of Siring," by
I.loyd Hamilton Is refreshing as

■What’ll 1 Do’.”’
“Vanity’s Price,” a rather strange,
too frank but nevertheless strongly
appealing picture, is shown at Cran-
Idall’s Metropolitan this week.
Anna Q. Nilsson is gorgeously
I caitarisoned and surrounded by splt-n-
I dor, seemingly without end. The re
j ntainder of the cast, including Wynd-
I ham Standing and Stuart Holmes, as
| hero and villain, are strong and well
j suited to their roles, while some of
I the most blithesome and beautiful
i work of the show is revealed by Lu
cille Ricksen and Arthur Rankin in
a juvenile love story which, runs as a
subcurrent to the main theme. Miss
Ricksen will bear watching by mo
tion picture fans—-she lias beauty of
face, youth and freshness-, which
promise much in the future.
The story of "Vanity’s Price” is of
a noted actress, Vanna de Manner,
who, shocked into a breakdown by a
surprise visit from the villain out of
. her past, goes to Vienna for an oper
ation to renew Iter youth. Although
beloved by the leading playwright ot
the day and by her voting son
"Teddy," the operation changes her
nature into that of an alluring crea
| ture, still in love with her old flame,
j the villain.
i It is not until the lovely sweet- I
j heart of Iter son Teddy has been en- !
j meshed in the villain's coils and a !
domestic tragedy impends that she j
j is shocked back to her senses and her |
1 conception of true love and devotion j
to her non and the playwright. The
story irt mueh like "Black Oxen." it
is vividly presented, well acted and
projected in brilliant photography.
There, may be spots too bald, too
frank for those of delicate sensibtl?
itles- The "kick" of the climax, how
ever, cannot be denied.
Tie comedy of the program is
"Rough and Beady," with I.lge t’on
nelly, and there are other short reels,
including- news pictures. The Metro
politan Orchestra, directed by Daniel
Breeskin, presnets delightfully the
overture "Hejro Kati.”
‘‘Her Marriage Vow," the Warner
production featured at the Rialto
Theater this week, is said to be the
film version of Owen Davis' story
which won the I*ulitzer prize. As a
picture "Her Marriage Vow" is

Palace—“ His Hour/’
-V® Elinor Clyn fans will revel in I
‘His Hour,” the newest scenario from!
that author's facile pen, shown for the
first time in Washington at the Palace
Theater to packed houses yesterday
"His Hour” is a sheik story with
Russian dressing. John Gilbert is a
new sheik to the screen. He seems
to have won his spurs as the sheik
iest of shieks, even surpassing the
suave Rodolph himself in the many
Glyn "mauling” scenes with which
the picture is saturated. Aileen Prin
gle, Mme. Glyn's protege, who was so
stately as the queen in "Three
Weeks," is equally beautiful in this
picture. Miss Pringle, however, does
not have much to do except look wor
ried and got yanked around by the
fierce Russian prince, Ghirzko.
"His Hour" is the story of this
prince to whom, to quote a subtitle,
"a woman is just a woman"—which,
i of course, explains everything about
! that young man's character. The
young Englishwoman (played by Miss
Pringle) comes to Russia to visit a
relative. Once the prince has laid
eyes on her he gives her no peace. At
last he kidnaps her, takes her to his
den In the woods (a passable substi
tute for the tent which Mrs. Hull used
in her desert storyj, and there, sud
denly humbled by the beauty and
goodness of the fair damsel, ho re

her swoon, tearing the worst, he pro
poses marriage and a ceremony is
later performed In a most attractive
The picture is full of snowstorms
and palatial Russian doorways, both
with and without painted backdrops.
The costumes are charming. The big
duel scene is satisfactory, although
nobody is fooled for a moment into
worrying over whether or not the
hero will win the duel in time to get
to the castle and lake Miss Pringle to
, the grand ball.
