Miss Dalton's rise in picture has
been steady until-today she is one of
the greatest favorite;-, with motion
picture audiences. Persuading her
father to send her to dramutic school
instead of in pursuit of a legal career
as he preferred; she began her stage
experience in support of Virginia

ingenue rclos with Hart Conway and
Wright Huntington. This was follow
ed by several seasons in vaudeville
in her own act. With such founda
tion, it is no wonder that her rise was
rapid after she became a member of
Thomas H. Ince company.

requirement for popularity in he
modern social whirl. His clothes are
of the vintage of a decade ago. ' He

Charley Ray Makes j
Village Sleuth" A !
As a country boy, with aspirations
to become a great detective, Charles
Ray is said to afford considerable
laughter and a few thrills in "A
Village Sleuth," in which he will be
seen at the Central theatre today and
Monday. . .
After his attempts to round up
some melon thieves in his dad's apple
orchard, have gotten him into hot
water, Charlie goes out and gets a
real job in a private sanitarium.
There he encounters a real mystery
and, his detective instincts aroused,
starts to unravel it. The results arej
surprising in the extreme. Charlie is
revealed not only as the logical suc
cessor to Sherlock Holmes but wins
a prety girl inthe bargain.
"A Village Sleuth" was written by
Agnes Christine Johnston, scenarist
of "Twenty-three and a Half Hours
Leave," and produced for? Paramount
release by Thomas H. Ince. Winifred
Westover is Che leading woman. Jer
ome Storm directed.
Another or William Gillette's gems
of the American stage will beautify

"Held by the Eenemy", was one of
the greatest of American dramas, and
in its screen form it is said to be even
more vivid and gripping than the play
"Held by the .Enemy" is a drama
of tense emotions and big. vital,
human situations1 a story of love and
loyalty and unselfishness, hate and (
treachery and human passion. It is j
filled with powerful moments and the j
underlying theme depicts the triumph
of love and devotion.
There are mariy, big, stricking roles
in "Held by the Enemy" Lewis Stone,
well known New York actor, takes
the part of Captain Gordon Hayne.
Agnes Ayres, an actress of many
accomplishments, was chosen to por
tray Rachel Hayne, and charm in
Wanda Hawley 'plays an equally im
portant feminine part.
Jack Holt v.ho will be remembered
for his work in Tourneur's "The
Life Line", and also in "VVictory"
does his best work in this picture,
while Robert Cain plays the heavy
with his unusual excellent skill.
Walter Hicrs, the funny fat boy actor,
supplies the necessary comedy. Other
important players are Josephine
Crowell, Lillian Leighton, Robert
Brower and C. II. Geldart.
