Fully half of to-day's audience was d
made up of Americans, among them g

many Germans. Russians and Dutch. S
The inhabitants of Oberammergau
are sparing no pains to billet foreigners t
comfortably and to entertain them iron- t
cially. Visitors mingle freely with and I
are largely billeted In the homes of t
actors and actresses of the Passion Play. The
wife of Anton Lang assigns a considerable
number of them to the homes i
of villagers. "
The village Itself does not forget the
reaMhtic side of life while portraying
its idealism. Fourteen members of the
Red Cross, as well as firemen of the
local department, stand ready In the
theater for any emergency.
Brilliant sunshine flooded the tiny
alley this forenoon after two days of
rain. The performance proceeded fault- /
lesaty and was highly commended.
Beside the art of Lang, the interpretation
given the part of Jyidas by Culdo
Mayr was particularly powerful In the
scene of the fourth act when meditating
whether he should betray Christ and
speculating on the result of betrayal,
and later his despair. He held his audience

trionic ability virtually every time he j

Lang strikingly depicted the principal j f
everlts in the life of Christ, such as the I o
driving of the money changers from the I A

with outstanding roles were Hugo Rutx , n
as Cniaphnn, the High Priest: Peter s
Hervd! as Jonrph of Arimathea; VV'il- g
helm Lang as Xlcodemu* and Hans c
Mayr as Pilate. n
Tlie staging of the spectacle was re- t
markable throughout, especially the t
crucifixion scene. In which Lang remains 1:
aloft on the cross for nineteen minutes.
The main chorus as well as the aux- a
lilary gingers Indicated unusual talent s
on the part of the director. e
The numerous tableaux depleting Old t
Testament episodes were consistently s
well posed. About 700 persons partlcl- s
noted In the scenes showing the en- J
trance of Christ into Jerusalem. The ^
agog of these persons ranged from three t
years old to octogenarians. c
Lung said this evening that the re- o
ception given to-day's performance was
the best he ever had seen.
Owing to the steadfast refusal of the
people of Oberammergau to grant con- r
cessions in connection with the lhtss'on *
Play which would bring profit to the '
village the hordes of motion picture ~
men here are being restricted to the lt
taking of street scenes. ,

This picture has more hard riding than

a picture of late, yet every one. including

steals steeds in his non-respectable mo-i

can stop those cowboys once thfcy have
been aroused, and so the most glorified
game of equestrian tag in and cut among
the rocks ensues. That happens because j
the hero changes clothes with *he hunted

was hardly fair to the cowboys, since
they had no relay to re'ievc them like
that. Yet Bob Haddington dors this to

Sparkling Film of
Action and Humor
Touch of Pathos Also in New!
Motion Picture Comedy by
CAPITOL?"Watch Your Step," a bold- |
wyn production written by Julien Josephson
and directed by WUttum Menudine.
Kvery once in a while a motion picture 1
comedy bobs up which is so joyous and
naturally gay that It makes photoplay j
going less of a duty and more of a
pleasure. Of such is "Watch Your Step,",
which takes ordinary materials .and
makes them seem even more wonderful
than they were back In the days when 1
scenario writers were Just discovering I
One trademark of excellence right 1
from the start is the name of the author,
Julien Josephson. who used to write
many of Charles Ray's stories back in
the days before Ray turned screen Narcissus
and became enamored of his own
closeup. Need one add after this Intro- 1
duction that it is a small town story
largely? Apparently one needn't. It
concerns tne not unknown theme of a I
city youth who Is thrown headforemost
into the country, is suspected of almost I
every crime in the calendar because he |
comes wearing tramp's clothes, and later
?for even the best movie must conform j
to the basic principles of the film drama j
?makes good in a ~uah.
From such simple and homespun stuff j
Josephson has woven a tale of sparkling I
Kwi.-rtinui, jt*i uim' w 111< ~ 11 Rffps so ciurtc
to the ground that It never seems in
(lunger of floating away like so tnuch
celluloid thistledown. One disregards
entirely the fact that young Elmer Riorum
doesn't actually make good on his
own account, but because his father
turns up in the town where his son has !
become clerk in the general store and
reveals himself to be a millionaire,
which immediately wins the villagers'
forgiveness of his son's supposed sins.
In fact, one forgives the hero for wln
lng the pretty girl so obviously In the
end. After all, what has a young suitor,
even with a mustache and a tuxedo,
against a hero with curly hair?
Various unique and adroit incidents
rush the story along almost with the
speed with which young Slocum drives
I his automobile. To begin with, Slocum'a
father warns him to watch his step, because
he Is so Inclined to step on the
gas. That brings Elmer into Jail, a place
frowned upon by father for such ordi|
nary breaches of the law as speeding.
Properly enough, after promising to behave.
Elmer simply has to race the motorcycle
cops In a dash which makes
the beholder dizzy with speed.
Believing he has killed an officer in
the final mlxup ending the pursuit, Elmer
flees in tramp garb by riding the
rods, getting off at the same town as a
pretty girl?and there you are 1
