Imagine what a comedian the x.hrr of Lloyd can do with n autmnohtta comedy, and you have an klinc of the laughs in store. Tie net attraction is Viola Dana's la: cm. -The Matchbresker." The XTjinHJ boldly state there are Just m classics of women those who nuke matches and those who break SBarvbes. Now the little lady around whom this atory is woven was of th la'ter typ. and her escapades a:arcnet her aunt with whom she mas living to the extent that dear art vowed the little lady must aet t Kwn. S?ettle down in the lan gtwure of the aunt meant simply mar te to the family lawyer, and this waa not In the least In accordance wjth the wishes of the girl. So she IvoliTrly left home. A girl In the ww-H mitbuut a career is up against a touch proposition, so our little hero tr.e achieved a treat deal of success in trcking matches ia her home ta a, advertised herself aa pro- j fcenional mtch-breaker, and guar-1 anteed to break up any match thatj was rauaing any family any alarm. Mt first client was a handsome yttuwr frllow who was particularly worried about his pater i-nd a widow a ntatcb. that waa causing no end f (flraip at Coronado. The girl took the , and her professional duties threw her much In the company of feer -li-nt. and father's ears caught atrarge stories of the son's "love a'fsir." The matehbreakcr was em ptayed and so our little heroine found Hrsc'f collecting money from both father and son, for exactly the same jrr-noe. This sort of thing is bound to lead to disaster, and disaster came ttii-n the matchbreaker found her self ia lore, and before the story Is finally settled, one Is carried through a" pretty a romance as could be written.

Cars. i JJO YOU COIV5OcS TWA-f S Setre Max Linger, who appears at Mauk's .O.tSumbia theater for the last times waw In. his latest comedy. "Be My Vifp,fc is a circus all by himself. In nt of his comedies. Max invariable Is TTesed just a little bit ahead of the fashion. The Frenchman prides him-r-t on tits fact, which is a bit un usual, . inasmuch as Americans are used tn seeing a comedian distin guished by some outlandish feature cf his costume. Max is an actor of the continental school, however, and relies solely upon real acting and the art of pantomime to get his laughs across. In Europe he Is called "The nan who speaks with his face," which eicpresses his ability better than any thing else. Be My Wife concerns the adven tures that befall Max In his attempts in outwit a watchful aunt and marry the girl of his heart. Many amusing situations develop, none Of them overdrawn, however, before Max finall!r attains his heart's desire. Ii is assisted in putting a large r-umber of laughs across by "Pal," a Rtston bulldo. "Pal" has been called i tie smartest dog In the movies, and he does everything but talk. He has own trained constantly by his mas ter since he was a small pup. and the remarkable way in which he throws himself into the farce spirit of the story gives evidence thst the train ing wasn't wasted. "Pal" is now two and a half years old and from all ap pearances has a very promising screen career ahead of him. -Linder has taken well with the American people. He became pop ular before the war, then, while he c serving- his country, dropped from sight f r a few years. Now he is back again with more follow rs than ever, which seems to prove that while the fickle public will for ar t a comedian who relies upon some eccentricity of costume for his pop ularity, they do not so easily over look real comic ability. One of the first Paths comedies of the new series featuring an all-negro cast is "Stick Around," a story of nesrro baseball team. This is a real cream. A Prizma color reel and the Columbia orchestra lend variety to '.he large comedy program. SORt7 THAT'S.. ACy &VeWTT YovJ vofN'T -er HIT ; r r g aFi in ra COMING IN LATEST TRIUMPH With a cast numbering over 2,000, uh :inrs the. last word in ac- uracy. with an environment alluring mi fascinating. Pola Negri comes to 'he F.ialto for a three days engage ment starting Wednesday, in "Gypsy niood." This famous continental star scored lti'tftA Night. Jbli tga V' V1 Refresh 'if mants Mayfield 'VVTeaehea . X0ane- , V. V ing ( I IT J an emphatic triumph recently in Passion," and in "Gypsy Blood,' the whole force of Pola Negri's unequalled art finds most perfect expression. It is a story of old Spain, with all the languor of the race, all the pas sions, the hates. and loves. It is the screen adaptation, of "Car men, not the version made rrom the popular French librettos which Bizet set to music, and which formed the vehicle for two screen presentations before, but a version adapted from Prosper Merimee's original French story. There is a vast difference in the pesentations. - Pola Negri, it is said, gives the most alluring registration of the cigarette girl that has ever come to the pub'le attention, either on stage or screen. Her emotional finesse made itself felt in her perfect presentation of Du Barry in "Passion." so that this pro duction is more like the return of a guaranteed star, a star whose appear ance is a real event in theatricals. The presentation of "Gypsy Blood'' in Los Angeles recently literally took the city by storm, and the fact that the Rialto will screen it here without ad vance in prices, with a complete line of added attractions, and the specialty to be presented as a prologue, augers for a duplication of that success. The engagement Is limited to Just three days, and the management is urging attendance during the matinee screenings. DOINGS OF THE DUFFS See What Santa Did! By Allman THERE.5 THE IT" 'SAYS ( .

Many and often were the conflicts, the hand to hand matches, the fights, but through It all tha stern tread of the reform made itself felt in the at fairs of the town, culminating when the town came into its own, throwing off the yoke of oppression and com ing out of its shell. Throughout the entire feature there is a vein of ro mance that heightens as the story un folds, and in the climax of happiness the picture finds a perfect ending. The added attractions are the Pathe News and the Mutt and Jeff comedy.

Those who have followed the career of this star will realize how successfully he interprets the virile "he-man" roles of excitement and action. In "Go Straight," he has a typical bill which he puts across in great style. His role ia that of a fighting preacher, a young minister who sent to a Kentucky hills town. The town is in the grassp of the political grafters headed by the mayor and his henchman, the justice of tho peace. Both pose as pillars of the church, and their rule is a rule of iron. The minister realizes the- graft, realizes the many changes to be made in the ministration aa well as In the physical condition of the town, and sets about to work the needed reforms. Of course he met obstacles from the quarters of the mayor, and his tribe, but the mayor and his tribe met a man of action, with strength to back up his convictions, a man Tha Frolic Another success was marked up for the Frolic in the barnyard dance held last Friday evening, and it is bound to be duplicated in the affair prom ised for this coming Friday evening.
