' This charm of costume was shown dur ing the trip through the Breton towns and many characteristic portrayals were made of “the cavalries for wnich Brittany is noted." In the delightful old town of Quimper pause was made to view the fisher folk, and latei. on the road, a wedding party was joined long enough to get in touch with the gay simplicity of the occasion, with ; the bride shyly smiling, the bridcginom jubilantly masterful, and. for back ground. many smiling little old dames with snowy caps to mark their years and standing. In a ramb’.e through Finistere the lecturer said. “We travel through the quaintest part of France." j Plougastel. “the gem of Brittany.” is a place where traditions have been pre j served and the visit there was at a time when “all Plougastel turns out on the day of a pardon.' In the harbor at ; Concarneau the fishing fleet -hows where the Prunier obtains his supp.v of lobsters and giant crabs. Also, rising from the beach, is the Vanderbilt-'VhH ney War Memorial at St Na-aire. There is a personally conducted tour of the chateaux in the Valley ot the Loire, then to Lourdes, where the lec turer joined thousands ol pilgrims. The church, grotto and street scenes were ; shown in motion detail and a fete day at Lourdes and some of the many thou sands of pilgrims were shown, “it is an impressive moment.’’ the lecturer tells his audience before his final picture, “the distant Pyrenees.” Mr. Newman will present 'Paris by Night” next Sunday afternoon. METROPOLITAN—“The Private Life of Helen of Troy.” Smiling satire scintillates in “The Private life of Helen of Troy.” which is delighting theatergoers this week at the Metropolitan Theater. Save for the ancient settings and costumes, the pro duction might well be one reflecting today, for the sayings that find then wav into the subtitles have a familiar ring about them, and th; reason lor this is because the offering has its basis in truth. The audience gets a pre-Volstcadian kick out of King Menelaos’ “I do not choose to make war on Troy." and later, when the re cruiting orators of Sparta are at work preparing for that conflict one urges his audience to “Join the navv and see the world." i/cwis Stone is true to the par? of the Spartan monarch. Maria Corda must make the real Helen of Troy a trifle jealous as having a real rival for pulchritude when her shade in the val leys of Elysium or Oreus. as the case may be. learns of this picture. Ricardo Cortez is good as Paris, the author ot a “companionate marriage" without a divorce beforehand, but the picture shows him as a silent sheik. The satire in the picture, which is based on John Eiskine's well known book, is delectable The love-making is engaging and sets a new standard foi attainment. The fun shines all through the story, sparkling and stimulating Best of all. apart from the satire, ior that is cellar and lightning rod of the piece, is the wonderful spectacle of the ouildings of Troy and Sparta. The wooden horse that turned appai eu« defeat into victory’ is a masterpiece. Washingtonians in particular will enjoy the point in th? King's handshaking at one of his White House receptions The picture gives one th r * sense that something new has arisen on the horizon of moviedom. Companionate to the feature photo play are current news events and a likeable comedy. Run. Girl. Run with Mack Sennett’s beauties predominating. Th?
