BlVOI.l ami K1AJ.TO?<*The Mi-trcss
of the "World." with JllM Mlu '.lay In
the flr?t of four Paramount episodes.
??The Vnwon'n I'law." W rltten by
< ;?rl 1 tgJor and directed by Juu May
for LI- A, tier man film company.
A largo opportunity is afforded lure
for .shivery music by the orchestra. It
Is a long time since there was such
a cimncc for instrumental shuddering.
Serials have been in abeyance in Ameri
can movie houses since the days be''ore
the war, and this unique experiment in
reviving tliem at tv> big Broadwaj
film palaces simultaneously once more
mul.es the orchestral aocompaninient an
essential pari. of tlie action, as in the
old melodrama days when the musicians
played cold perspiration drops rather
than l.r.'.es.
Korolc rescue work was obviously ap
plied In reducing this story of the Danish
grirl who searciies over most of the wild
spots of the globe for the Queen of
Sheba'a lost treasure, in order to bring
it within the compass of an entertain
ment where the American fan wouldn t
feel he was devoting himself to a Wag
nerian cycle on the screen. The original
photoplay shown abroad was in some
thing like fifty-two reels, ohown in thir
teen installments, and in diminishing it
to a. series of four episodes it can be
:ieen tiiat two-thirds of the material had
to be squeezed out of it without endan
gering its vitality. The condensation Is
apparent enough in the first installment,
for It contains throe separate "kicks"
that were no doubt designed to raise
stubby Teutonic hair in three different
installment?'.
Imprisoned ??>' Oriental Villain.
You watch Helm NciUen in the
Chinese phase of %or search being Im
prisoned by an O/jenta! villain who ha
lnred her all tty way to Canton with
the pretended oVer of work as gover
ness, and then attempts to marry her.
using a dungeon filled with rising water
to convince her he has the rlnht Hen
about hasty matrimony. After her
escape, aided by Dr. Kini T*unp, a Ei'tv
peanlzed young Celestial, siie is once
more within the blackguard's clutche-".
for he turns out to be the king of th :
h'ggari-, just as you hoped he would.
She Is no sooner raved from this by a
slgnntlc attache of the Danish legation
than she Is beleaguered in a priest's
?r.isslon house by a mob' of coolies, who
believe she has killed a native child by
witchcraft?for no particular reason
except to start more trouble. And so It
goes, with the young woman pretty busy
during her days meeting perils, nn l
with only her nights to herself for social
engnp mcnts.
Taken by and large, it is a good,
workmanlike adaptation of a serial that
Is distinguished above similar fabrica
tions primarily t.y an opulence of set
ting. Sometimes It runs aground 011
falro motivation. One can see 110 rea
son y the penurious girl, searchlnsr
for a fortune that will make iter nils
tresv of the world, shouldn't accept In
stead ')ie wealthy Danish attache and
settl'1 down with a coupie of servants
It's hard to see how she can resh't
him when he performs such prod igloo ?
feats of strength for her sake. He lifts
a vast gate off its hinges to save her
from the beggar rabble?he need never
worry about forgetting bis latchkey If
th'-y should marry. In the fight with
this riff-raff ho hurls men about Ilk'
meal sacks, yet they seem to lean
eagerly light into his arms for this
purpose. At tlie ruined temple, where
dwells the hermit who has tlie secret of
the hiding place of the treasure, one l<
surprised to And that the Chinese once
used hugs Doric columns, hut after that
one isn't astonished to see a big plll'ir
pull'-d over by hti absent minded pony
hitched to It. It flattens out the hermit
Just when he has given the secret to the
attache, and It Is high time to end the
episode.
Vivid Scene* in fhe Orlr-rt.
The incongruities are no more than
those of the average serial, and It has
Imagination to burn. China la named
ni the actual location of the scencs. Kv
trrmely picturesque river anil street
vistas around Canton, an execution 011
the great wall, and the weird liaur.t of
the beggars?these are a few of the
vivid seen'* that put the spell of the
Orient on a working basis.
The east, especially tho native actors.
Is satisfactory, despite occasional .-nags
In the continuity, and give the spectator
n good time while his spine undulates
satisfactorily. Miss May Is a brilliant
blonde, statuesque to the point of bux
0 mess, and no matter how many har
rowing hazards she endures she never
1 :;e? weight. Too often she pops her
< ves out as though about to lose them
? verboard. But e^en occasional bad
lighting ein't cloud the comeliness of
ihfs Would-be feminine Napoleon.
Bohenen is said to be a grand op?ra
barytone of quality, and certainly he
p'ny . the strapping hero with the florid
r ?tures of n singer aiming to boost his
voice above the orchestra. Perhaps the
? -ason why he runs back at one point
and le?s the girl be carried to the
beggars' ambuscade Is In order to allow
her the proper handicap that all heroes
nius* overcome. Tho Instalment ends
ft'U'roprlately with the attache trapped
in 'he fallen temple, while th.' be lcged
girl Is about to follow his injunction to
ring the bell If she needs him. and you
resolve to view the next Instalment. If
only to see whether he answers with a

more or less private theaters that have
! done so much to encourage the talent <
of the playwright. It would have been
I very much better for Mr. 0'N? ill's rep

, been played anywhere.
There is in the dialogue much of the
i nuthor's 'igorous and natural writing'.
I Occasionally thu obse rvation of character
is search ingly true to life. Yet it is
J tiot directed in a novel channel. The
! play deals with the narrowness of view
I which' maintains in small communities
i and its eventually evil effect on the
! innocent. Then- i.: nothing new in thl?t
theme, which has been the inspiration of
the dramatist in ou-ry age. S'o the

STH V> li?"Th? sheik's Wife," a Henri
Kon-'-rll production distributed as a
Yltagraph spscluU
At its climacteric points "The Sheik's
Wife" is confuse!, perhaps because tin ro |
are so mimy Arab robe* and tents flap- ;
ping In the wind like the wash on the i
lino. When tho English lover of the
Hritish girl who lias married it desert
chieftain because her mind la stuffed
with romance steals Into her harem tent I
?for no reason that's made clear?and
her Arab husband hears of It there's a i
vast ecurrj ing about to no apparent end
except to Kick up the dust.
I<'or tho lover makes no determined ef
fort to ??scape, anil In the end he's
hauled out before the enraged husband
by the slack of his shirt. Tho husband
Is nil the more enraged, very properly, |
because he was just about to break iiia
promise of monogamy to his forelpn |
bride and take another wife. Instead of ;
IdUlne tho violator of his harem's sane- j
titv he suddenly dcsldeH to settle mat- |
ters with a duel between them, perhaps j
because the sheik's Oxford education ?ot ;
the better of him.
Tho action clarifies a bit during the ]
' well staged duel, even In the moonlight, |
for nothing could be clearer or more ,
i pointed than two swords thrusting at
ea? h other. Hut after tho British naval
I officer has been slain by tho sheik an- j
other blur er.suos when the furious j
chieftain leads ills tribe on a largo sized
order to wipe. out the whole British gar
i rison near by, just to prove who's the
boss around his home. lt'? difficult to
divine In the desert skirmishing who is
who, and what all the shootln' is for.
Hut once you give up trying to decipher j
i which side is running away. It proves ?
to bo a dandy scrap. Eventually you
t.-e? the notion the garrison wins?you're
pretty certain of this, because the i
! stricken Arabs on tho field make it ap- I
j jwar the whole wash has been shot off
; the line.
The photography is uniformly splen
