DAY
Had the entire motion picture eate
rory culled, a belter holiday
pr-m could not have been se-Sx-te-4
than the three features which
w a two-day engagement at the
TUalt today.
" U l-.is off with Harold Uoyd,
omaeSiaa tr excellence. In "Get Out
r .1 ti-t Under." a Joy-ride of lauijh
with IJoyd at the wheel. It is
m auto-escapade of fun woven
urMind the trials and tribulations of
. i. -..tnrjnc. 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.
Dorothy Kelly. In fifteen minutes
ef happiness, holds the center of in
terest on the stage among the fea
tures offered by the Rlalto. and her
whistling and singing act literally
"brings down tha house."
, eorg J. Hayes, In charge of the
nnlcal end of the program, is fur
rrehing a delightful- bill, and Carrol
Reed s baby syncopated symphony
orchestra is another bright spot in
the lineup.

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.

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

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.

who .waa not afraid to use bit fists
if necessity arose.
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.
Tomorrow starts the engagement of
Gladys Walton in "High Heels," with
"Quo Vadis," underlined for a three
.days engagement starting Thursday.

Strand
For the final screenings today the
Strand is offering Frank Mayo in
his latest Universal feature, "Go
Straight." 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.
The barnyard dance finds turkeys,
chickens, ducks and geese being given
away to patrons of the dancing club,
along, with an excellent program of
dancing.
E. S. Mayfield. floor manager at the
popular club, is busy with the - de
tails for the event Friday, and with
new decorations and new specialties.
it is assured of success, Carrol
Reed's baby symphony syncopated
orchestra is preparing a great pro
gram of dance numbers for the oc
casion.
The refreshment booth will be th
scene of great Interest in the special
dainties they are preparing.
It locks like another big night at
the Frolic, a night that no dancer can
affora to overlook. There will be no
charge for reservations, a phone call
will reserve a booth for any patron.
, Symphony Orchestra at Columbia
Featuring another of its unusually
large programs, today and tomorrow
Mauk's Columbia theater has se
cured as an added attraction, with
no advance in prices, Stuchal's. 30
piece symphony orchestra. This an
nouncement will be received with
Joy by local music lovers. Carrying
Its own soloists, both vocal and in
strumental, and 18 violins, the pro
gram offered by Stuchal's symphony
orchestra is one that -is .seldom
equaled in a city the size of Phoenix.
In addition to this extra feature,
pretty May McAvov will be seen in
her latest success, "Everything for
Sale." Miss McAvoy will be remem
bered for her work as the shy Scotch
heroine in "Sentimental Tommy." in
this nicture. however, she has an en
tirely different rble. She is seen as
a strictly modern young lady who
returns from boarding school to find
herself face to face with the problem
of a marriage for money or a mar
riage for love. Urged ly her mer
cenary aunt to marry Lee Morton, a
"hard young millionaire whom she
doesn't love, she rebels and gives her
heart to her childhood pal, who is a
struggling young architect.
