THIS whole face of nature is to be j
reversed, which Is nothing new ,
for the movies. Put this time
it will he done in a striking way, even
for an industry whore persons cannot
die except in a striking way. "Morton
of the Movies," the novel by Harry j
L?eon Wilson, which managed to sift
through Hollywood without once

Tn the past Los Angeles has many
times produced pictures In whjcb the
local scenery was made to purport to 1
l>e Manhattan, principally by a strong
effort of will on the part of the
director. Now New York is to turn '
the tables and try to look like Los
Angeles. A prize will be offered for
the best solution of this riddle: Which
town is the more flattered?
Charlie Chaplin has been noticed considerably
of late in the immediate viclnitj
of Lila Lee's smile. To which the
ntirwer. however, is said to be "No!"
Chaplin, now that his period of probation
after his divorce from Mildred
Har"'s is over, is said to be willing to
look into the subject of marriage again.
This is not to be construed as a hint
to thousands of girls to step forward
with their curls in their hands. It
merely expresses Chaplin's current
mood?he may presently suffer a relapse
into his bachelor phase. In any
event. Miss I^ee is said to be not for
him. nrineinallv hecmist. the vnnne- n -
man ha;; so decided herself, which ought

Th^ conviction is now general that
Coldwyn Distributing Corporation, conducting
the exchanges of the Goldwyn
Flctures Corporation, will be amalgamated
with the First National distributors
"ere yet autumn's fires have tipped
the leaves with burnished gold," as a
film sub-tltler would undoubtedly express
it. The name of the combine will
probably be changed to the GoldwynFirst
National Distributing Corporation,
which will be a fine mouthful for the
ordinary exhibitor to utter when calling
up an exchange in a hurry.
Incidentally, some speculation Is going
on ? It always is ? as to whether the
Capitol Instead of the Strand next fall
will wear the mantle of First National
franchise. A few First National pictures
have been shown recently at the
Capitol, but the Strand, as the official
wearer of the royal purple of First National.
has had the right to first call
on the regular line of goods that was
be'ng pushed. But In view of the new
deal now being shuffled In the pic
However, one of those who is doing j
the least worrying about such a shift ,
In the balance of power is S. L. Botha- j
fel. who directs the presentations at the j
t'apitol when not attending to his real j
business in life, that of studying hand- |
(tall. What is bothering Bothafel just
row Is rheumatism in the right shoulder,
but not because he cherishes any
elm of leading the big Capitol orchestra.
}-fe is annoyed at his indisposition because
he wag to have played for the I
theatrical handball championship
egainst B. S. Moss, who arranges the
inovio offerings for his own and the
Keith and Proctor circuits whenever his
time isn't taken up by handball.
The epochal match had to be postponed
because of Bothafel's attack, and
pow not only are Moss's followers tugging
at the leash, but all Broadway is
getting restive under the strain of having
this unimportant title undecided.
Whenever the subject is mentioned to
the Bothafel forces, they say, "Well,
anyhow, Mr. Bothafel beat Mr. Moss
once before." To which the Moss office
replies fiercely, "Tut, tut!"
Mennwhlle his ailment hasn't kept |
Rothafel from swinging his trusty right
In making arrangements for some Interesting
future bills at his house. One
prospective offering will be Mack 8enrett's
latest long feature. "Cross Roads
of a Great City." which Is said to have
humor ns well as hokum thrills, so that
the highbrow can laugh while the lowbrow
thinks that life In the big town
must toe wonderfully terrible. Then'
there will be "Shattered,"' another of j
the French films which are multiplying I
here with regularity.

the organization under 72dward
llnwes so much that a symphony will

confused with the way that many subtitles
for scenlcs virtually ring themselves,
especially when dealing with
clouds and the wide, open spaces. This
Is the first time that mountain! In the

Tint la la a question whether the pub'lc
pray not only decide to forget rr.e post
but. aa has been Ita habit In the caao of
4 ?ther stars who retired temporarily
from the acreen, to forget ArbucHe hlmaelf.
Kven where the star haa had a good

the usual attitude of lha fan*
seemed to be. "Iy>t me see, where have

Mae Marsh abstained from the

chcouhtered a big question mark, too.
?iA most conspicuous Instance recently
was that of Flora Finch, who rebounded
to the screen after her retirement without
causing a ripple except among the
ctHtlcs, who heaved a sigh for the dnye
when they believed everything in the

Stroked the usual apocryphal whisper*
In Flaibush and other perspicacious regions

Coming In the category of what la
known In the parlance of the motion picture
Industry as "short subjects," this

their play time, their stage success and
Dften a phase of their home life.
In its manner it depicts current events
In the theater by taking a scene from
one of the popular plays; again it
branches into the vaudeville theater,
taking an Individual "act" and filming
one of Its interesting phasea
in filming the domestic side of an
artist's life, it brings out phases with
which the public is little acquainted,
except perhaps where a magazine might
have touched upon the subject. Tet in
almost every case an attempt Is made
to attain a certain individuality, thus
bringing up these camera interviews to
a truly authentic cinema magazine. It
is said to compare with "Round the
Town," as produced in London.

Travelers Make
Paris Seem Like
an A merican City
Reports of Crowded Conditions j
Fail to Daunt Visitors and
Hotels Take All.
tpecial Correspondence to Tri Nl.? Yc*K
Paris, May 2.
THE ever Increasing: stream of
tourists is rapidly causing:
Paris to appear to be nothing:
>ut American. All of the great ocean
iteamshlpa are arriving crowded with
ourlsts, and with each load the hotelceepers
say they cannot take another
>eraon and that their establishments
ire completely filled for weeks In advance,
and all sorts of discouraging |
hings, but on they come, regardless j
>f reports of no accommodations or ;
he high cost of travel, and last min- I
ite rooms seem to bo available despite
he talk to the contrary. With so
nuch concern about the hotels being
Hied as early as April, one is inclined
;o believe that the tourists will be
ileeplng in tents In the Bois by the
:Ime June arrives.
An exceptionally backward spring,
icwever, has kept many of the early
:ourists from remaining In the French
'apltal. The cold weather, with conitant
ruin and often snow for the last
dght weeks has cast a gloom over the
sity that soon, gets on the nerves of the
.'iaitors, so they are scattering In all
ilrections to get their traveling on the
-AmLinent aone in Apru ana juay, wun ]
he hope of settling down for a longer
itay in Paris in June. The night life,
lowever, goes on undisturbed by rain or
inow and the tourists who complain blterly
during the day about wading
hrough the shopping districts and being
'rozen out of their hotel rooms, Ac.,
irown their troubles in champagne and
teem glad enough to be in a country
hat is wet in more than one senBe of
he word.
An event of the week was the opening
>f Maurice and Leonora Hughes's seaion
at the newly fitted Theater
iTaumartln. which was formerly the old
Jlover Club. It seems that these
American dancers are to have the same
treat success that they had last season,
hough the size of the place will present
the record of last spring to be
'eached. It Is a mere band box of a
ilace, with scarcely room enough to
urn around, to say nothing of dancing,
>ut the tourists no sooner reach Paris
han they hear of the American places,
md they all flock to the same spot,
ind if they cannot find space in which
o dance they can at least find charo>agne
enough to drink. The opening
if this new midnight dancing house
ilds fair to be a repetition of the story
if the Hue Caumarttn of last year,
vhen Harry Pllcer held the floor with
he most popular dancing house until
he Maurice-Hughes combination came
ilong and opened across the street.
?arla is a peculiarly fickle individual
vhen it comes to her amusement, espeilally
in her dancing haunts, and she
mmedlately transferred her affections
feom Pllcer to the newcomers. This
season it will probably be the "So Different"
which will suffer, though there
ihould be enough for both, as there
sire almost twice as many touHsts
lere as were in Tarls in April last year,
md each house is turning away hunlreds
of dancers every night for the
ack of space, so one should catch the
jverflow of the other. The "So Different,"
which was formerly the
urana leuu.v, uas uau ?.i*
un during the entire winter. It has
Irawn many more of the smart
Parisian set than any of the midnight
The "So Different" Popnlar.
The "Parroquet," the "Abbaye de
Theleme," "Zelli's" and various others
of the same kind have been more or
less filled each night, but they have
drawn more of the visitors to Paris,
men, for example, who are here for a
week or two on business, and New York
buyers who are constantly coming and
going, so the crowds have been rather
more transient than those seen at the
"So Different." It now seems that this
place, which has held Its popularity In
being really the smartest dancing house
In Paris for a whole winter, is to be
pitted against the new place, and It remains
to be seen whether or not it will
be able to stnnd the pace set by the
new place any better than Harry Pllcer
did last spring.
So far honors have been even, as the
"So Different" has the advantage of
being more comfortable for those who
really love to dance instead of watching
others. The Maurice-Hughes place,
though small, is very attractively arranged.
and it is apparent that Americans
love to see Maurice and Leonora
Hughes dance, no matter whether It is
in a bandbox or banquet hall. They
Introduced several new dances, which
were a great success, and were called
back many times for their oldest numbers.
Among the Americans noticed on
the opening night were Mrs. Vincent
Astor entertaining Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon
Whitehouse of the American Embassy,
and Mr. end Mrs. H. B. Russell
(she was Miss Harriman) ; Mrs. John
Black was with Mrs. Armstead Davis,
Mr. and Mrs. Berry Wall, Mr. William
Roche, Mr. Preston Gibson and Mr.
Morris Volck. Mrs. Herman Fraach and
her daughter, Mrs. Frasch-Whlton. were
entertaining Mr. and Mra. H. C. Huffer
and Mr. J. Tarn McOrew. Others noticed
were Mr. and Mra. Carlos Mayer,

Mrs. Walter Douglas, Mr. Conde
Nast, Miss Madeleine Brandes. Capt.
Oeorge Bloch, Mr. J. C. Douglas, Mr.
W. H. Warner and Mr. W. D. Morgan.
Then there were Mile. Cecils Soret with
a party and the Duchess Sforta, with
her usual queer looking following, to
add to the picture, and the American
Theater was not without representatives
in Mr. Irving Berlin, a writer of Jass
melodies; Miss Justine Johnston, a former
Ziegfeld Follies beauty, now a moving
picture star, end Miss Muriel
Spring, another film star.
At Clarldge'a.
Olarldge's had Its Mg weekly dinner
dance the same night and many who
gave parties there were seen afterward
at Mcurlce and taonora Hughes!
Among them were Mr. Wlnehell Smith,
the playwright, and Mrs. Smith, entertaining
several persons prominent in
the theatrical' world, Including Mr. and
Mrs. Jaok fltone. Mr. and Mrs. John
Emerson, Mr. and Mrs. William Elliott.
Mr. Crosby Gage, Mr. E. T. Barger, Miss
Diana North, Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton
B. Wills, Mr. Randolph Jacobs and Mr.
and Mrs. Louis Orr.
Dancing seems to tighten Its grip on
Paris durtng the latter half of each
week, leaving the earlier days open for
dinners, receptions nnd the theater. Friday,
Saturday nnd Sunday are the three
big dancing nights. Saturday night at
the Union Interalljb la usually smart,
