ployed their familiar Italian. Linguistic
differences did not in any way affect tha
fate of Don Jose, impersonated by Ama

Just as completely as if he had conversed
with Carmen in the tongue of Paris.
However, it may be said of him that he
made his fate believable.
Miss Jardon w^s a very dark and
sinister looking Carmen. and she sang
the music in somber, gloomy ar.d some
times depressing tones. Nevertheless
and received much enthusiastic applause.
Miss Charlebols, who sang Mtofieta, dis- 1
played a pretty soprano voice and a1
decidedly ingenue manner. She wgs an j
excellent foil to the vampire Carmen. I

MA UGHAM'S 4EAST OF SUEZ'
MELODRAMA AT ITS BEST
Play With Little Japanese Half Caste as Heroine Easily
Is the Most Engrossing Play of the New Season.
By 1,1 Willi NCK BEAM Kit.
No other figure iti the life of the
Orient seem* to captivate the writers of
Western fiction so much as the Eura
sian. is beginning to dominate their
stories about the East. The little
Japanese half caste, Yae Smith. In that
shoddy bit of propaganda "Kimono" is
its most picturesque figur?.
W. Somerset Maugham has made an
Eurasian girl the heroine of "East of
Suez," which A. it. Woods gave lupt
night at the Eltinge. Evidently no
other question seemed to hts practiced
eye to offer so much material for the
stage. She is a provocative creature
with the hand of her own people turned
against her and those allied through her
white blood, equally contemptuous. The
traditions of two contrasted civilizations
war in her heart for master}', war more
over witii the sense of injustice that
makes the half breed, through no fault
of hers, an outcast.
Here, <>f course, is a heroine of melo
drama to the mind of any playwright.
Along one line East and West will never
meet?and that is the Eurasian. So in
spite of the conventional English edu
cation which her father provided, the
girl In "East of Suez" sinks the minute
she steps foot in China to the level of
her mother, who serves her obsequi
ously us a nurse or Amah with tho
blood tie kept a secret between them.
What does Mr. Maughatn prepare for
his heroine on her own hMth? All
that Is possible for the Eurasian.
She falls into the hands of a rich
Chg^uman to whom her status Is a mat
ter of indifference so long as her Eng
lish beauty Is his. Then there are her
English husband and his friend whom
she has for a long time loved. It is her
reactions to these three that supply
Mr. Maugham with the material for his
Ilia Ally in the Matter.
Always the Chinese suitor has his allj )
in the mother, who looks to him for
more than the other two can give. It .
Is he who stages the little riot In the
street that the English husband may
come out to quell. But the wrong man (
gets tlie knock on the head meant for
him. It is the lover who is accidentally
wounded and must stop in the com
pound until she has nursed hint well
of the wounds intended for her husband.
He is away on a mission connected with
his business duties*. So the Eurasian
nurses her English lover with only the
Chinaman lingering about to work in
the end his Oriental revenge.
He inflames the woman with stories of
the lover's unfaithfulness until the let
ters he has written are sent to her hus
band as proof of his friend's treachery.
The Englishman kills himself rather than
face the disgrace of this disloyalty to his
friend. Then in a somewhat fanciful
mood quite at variance with the rest of
the play, which is frankly melodramatic,
the spirit of her Chinese ancestor Is sup
posed to descend on the woman, who sits
stiffly in the unimpassioned manner of
the Orient looking straight ahead of her
and listens without emotion to the knock
ing of her husband on the door of their
In the Mnln Engrossing.
Such is Mr. Maugham's melodrama. In
the main engrossing, highly colored with
some suggestion of the life of the Orient
and above all with the glowing acting
of Miss Florence Reed to Impim vitality
to the long scenes. Miss Reed nia le a
doubly alluring siren with the blood of
the East and West in her palplta'.in,
veins. She moved with feline eloquence
and purred with a passion that was
scarcely to be suppressed to the limits
of decorous drama. Then her volte
alternated Its sensuous intensity with
the haunting suggestion of Eddie Foy
itnitatluK Etliel Barrymore in a phono
John Hallidny played with some re
sponsive flame the unwilling lover and
Leonard Mudie indicated graphically
the blind affection of the deluded hus
band. Miss Catherine Proctor was in
telligent in the role of the mother dis
guised as a servant, but the sinister
note was lacking that might, have
added force to her deviltry. Ill the case
of Howard Lang, who read with
his usual sonorous tone and dis
tinct utteran.o. the character of
the pursuing Chinaman might have
been more strongly emphasized.
Youth was personally present in Geof
frey Kerr and Gypsy O'Brien.
' East of Suez," although it contains
but little of Maugham's hest. is easily
the most engrossing play of tho sea
son. it is melodiama at Ms best.

of the most remarkable ever exhioited

than is customary with color films. The

been hazy, were sharply defined. There
were none of the color fringes observ

Where the film was clear, the firm
color blending in natural tints seemed
perfect. The green and red flashes that
sometimes develop in rapid motion of

ture. which was without subtitles for
the present, was tentatively called "The
Story of the Sea," was produced for the
company by Joseph M. Schenck In Hol
lywood. Kenneth Harlan and Miss
Wong, a Japanese artist, played the
leading role in the simple story, which
resembled that of "Madame Butterfly."
The Japanese scenes lent themselves
particularly well to such treatment, and
whenever flowers were pictured their
luscious tints aroused applause. The
reds were particlarly rich.
Most of the scenes were taken out
doors, and the sunshine brought out the
volois in almost a golden glow. The
scenes taken In the studio, under arti

less vivid. Face tints came out with a

view to beginning work on the produc

which ho calls the phono-film and which
he developed in a Berlin laboratory, has
for its underlying principle the photo
graphing of sound. Briefly, sounds are
registered on the film by a small beam
of light which varies with the fluctua
tions of the human voice. The light re
cords its variations on a ribbon one-six
teenth of an inch in width which runs
along simultaneously as a margin to the
subject on the celluloid.
For projection the process Is run back

telephonic currents which are regulated
by the intensity of the track of light.
