She Walked In Her Sleep." Mark
Swan's farce, which opened a week's
eneaceinent.at the Shubert-Garrick
Theater last night, achieves two
rather remarkable feats It proves
that a play can be so full of breath
taklngly funny situations that they
fairly fall over each other, - and at
the seme time stay within the realms
of possibility; and that there can be
a bed room scene and a nightie two
of each, even without the slightest
touch of vulgarity. Incidentally, it's
a corking good show, well conceived.
Well palyed, and well set. without a
drag In it, from the opening to the
closing curtain.
Chief honors in the piece. go to the
leading male characters. Robert Ober
and Arthur Aylesworth, but in fair
ness to the rest of the cast it must
be said thatj their roles have by far
the greatest possibilities.
The story opens in the apartment of
the Prescotts, a recently married

threatened by the wife of William
Bruce, Prescott's partner, one of thOBe
women who not only delights' in
doubting her own husband, but also
in making other wives doubt theirs.
Mrs. Lenox, Katherine Prescott's
mother, is trying to combat this Influ
ence. Prescott and Bruce come in,
with an old -friend. Dr. Keith, and the
women leave. Keith then tells them
of a case that has brought him to the
hotel, of a girl who is suffering" from
somnambulism, without knowing it
self. He explains that they are

l&rs. Prescott's brother, has announc
ed that he has become engaged to al
girl who 1s staying in the same apart

her at once and take her off with him
to Brazil.
John Arnold comes Into the story

Mass., would say she married him for

derelicts who make the apartment a
rendezvous, who worship Mary, and
enjoy life without being bothered by
any details of hard work, and you
have the setting at the beginning of

the National last night.
The musical play Is based on a
comedy by Jerome K. Jerome. It is a
story of an actress in love with a
supposed shirt salesman. They are
married on the stage after the even
ing performance. When the bride
arrives at the husband's castle in Eng
land, she discovers, much to her dis
comfiture, that he Is a nobleman.
Then, to add to her mortification.
It turns out she Is his butler's niece.
As such, the old fellow has a great
deal to say to her as to how she
should behave in select circles. All
is well that ends well, however, and
after a little misunderstanding and
jinuch to do, the couple are reconciled.

RUTH
Who appears in the new cdmedy,
ning was the work of Billy B. Van,
the comedian, with Sydney Green
street, as the pompous butler, run
ning him a close second.
Billy's scene with the two unso
phisticated aunts of the young lord
kept the audience in uproar.
Greenstreet's work is in a class by
itself. His clashes with the new mis
tress of the house, the desperation
with which he tries to keep her' In
what he considers to be the straight
and narrow path, and his grunting
provoked much merriment.
Beth Lydy, the leading woman,
pleased with her charming voice and
breezy personality, and Harry Delf
and Lenora Novasio were decided hits
with their eccentric dancing.
The music, 'composed by Louis A.
Hirsh, is far above the average. "I'll
Think of Youl" sung by Delf and Miss
Novasio. .deserves a place among the
best lyric compositions of the day.
It is full of pathos, yet the lilt of the
tune Is catchy. Another good song
was "In a Month or Two," sung by
Harry Bcnham. assisted by Georgia
Se'well. Merlam Medle, and the chorus.
"My Rainbow Girl," sung by Miss
Lydy and Benham, also is charming.
IiYCEUM.
Charles M. Baker's "High Flyers,"
one of the most popular attractions
on the American burlesque wheel,
constitute the attraction at the Ly
ceum Theater this week.
It Is an entirely new production.
Twelve complete changes of scenery
in the two acts and an unusual elec
trical display are features. Heading
the .cast are Bert Bcrtrand. Charles
Cole. Stella Blair, Miller Evans,
Frank Hanscom, Gertrude Rawlston,
and Margie Hilton. A chorus of
eighteen girls Is seen to advantage.
FOLLY.
The Folly Theater had a capacity
bouse yesterrfay. "The Peacemakers"
was the attraction, which was de
scribed on the program as a fantastic
musical burlesque. Among the prin
cipals were Gus 'Mortimer Vivian
Lawrence, Charles Snuffy Gramlich,
Harry Fitzgerald, Charlotte Chastine,
Austin King, Bert Leater, Helen -Dor-sey.
and Ruby Gilmore.
Fifteen musical numbers appear.
The company has eighteen in the
chorus. . .
PALACE.
Billie Burke is as charming as
usual in "Good Gracious, Annabelle!"
which is being shown at Loew's Pal
ace. '
The story opens with Billie Burke
as Annabelle living in a fashionable
apartment hotel. She receives an al
lowance from her husband, who is
known as "the hermit." He, as far
as Annabelle -knows, is In a mining
camp out West. Indifference when
they were first married caused her
husband tp send her East.
Annabelle has spent her allowance
for six months ahead. All she has
left to live on are two mining stock
certificate. She borrows $1,200 on
these. A short time later a telephone
call comes from her lawyer tejllng
her that her husband wants the
stock. A few minutes after this sho
Is informed that she has been named
co-respondent in a divorce suit.
How she get out of all hor trouble
and becomes reconciled to her hus
band by a second courtship make a
decidedly interesting and amusing
story.

METROPOLITAN AND KNICKER
BOCKER. The screen dramatization of the
later Charles Klein's famous play,
"The Lion and the Mouse," which Is
being shown at Crandall's Metropoli
tan Theater during the early part of
this week, serves to elaborate on the
finer points of the plot which cannot
be brought out on the stage. The film
was also shown yesterday and is being
held over today at the Knickerbocker.
Alice Joyce, In the role of Shirley
Rossmore, is introduced to the audi
ence while she Is in Paris studying.
Here she meets Jefferson Ryder, thr
upright son of the Wall Street finan
cier, John Burkett Ryder, and they
fall in love. Their troubles begin
when Shirley is called home, her
father being In trouble. Ryder, Jr.,
goes with her and promises his aid in
securing her father justice, with the
power of his father.
As tho play develops It is found
that it is Jefferson's father who is
having Judge Rossmore impeached
because the fearless jurist rendered a
railroad verdict unfavorable to thr
interests of "Big Business."
Ryder, sr., charges Rossmore, un
justly, with accepting brirbes.
Shirley is an authoress and writes
a sketJkh of the financier's life under
the name of Miss Green, and calls her
book the "American Octopus." Ryder
sees In the book himself stripped of
his protecting armor of power and
calls upon "Miss Green" to write hi
biography. Shirley goes to Ryder's
house and while there secures letters
which will acquit her father of the
charges.
Ryder, sr., admits he Js beaten then
and calls upon the Senate to discon
tinue the trial. He then gives his con
sent to his son's marriage to Shirley.
COLU3IBIA.

Reld, opened a four-day run at Loew's

One of the most interesting events
of the year In a theatrical way will
be, the presentation hero next week,
at the Belasco Vheater.of "A Burgo
master "of Belgium." " by Maurice
Maeterlinck.
Of course, anything from the pen of
the noted Belgian Is more than
worth seeing, but this has the added
claim to fame in the fact that it
brings the playwright to us in an
absolutely 'new role that of a real
ist. Not that it's a war play in the
realistic sense of bayonets and
screams. Despite the fact that the
,ldeu'ls taken direct rrom tne ueigian
White Book, there's not a single
atrocity on stage, and the piece is
falrjy Grecian in its setting. There
Is only one scene for the three acts,
and the entire action takes place In
approximately eight hours.
But the big thing is Maeterlinck
as a realist. One can almost as'easlly

"Fatty" Arbuckle has just "signed
up a three-year contract, aggregat

agent says.
We hope that "Fatty" and his press
agent have come to a thorough un
derstanding about this because
think what a nice chunk of Income
ax. It will mean for -Undo Sam.
The Lasky Corporation has been
having a busy week. Irene Castle,
widow of Vernon Castle, has Just ar
tanged to appear for them in the
filmlzatlon of Robert W. Chambers'
novel, "The Firing Line," and they've
also been acquiring screen .rights of
J. M. Barrie's play, "The Admirable
affection of her husband by Sada,
skillfully limned by Vola Dale.
APOLLO.
"Courage For Two" presents Carlyle
Blackwell In a dual personality role
In which several ingenious effects are
accomplished through double expos
ure. This picture formed the princi
pal attraction at Crandall's Apollo
yesterday.
From the very start the 8tory
abounds In action. Cal Douglas
learns that his present unsatisfac
tory condition in life is due to the
fact that his father was robbed,
shortly before his death, by -a busi
ness partner. Gilbert Nichols.
Cal decides to visit Anthony Hop
kins, a wealthy cousin, in an attempt
to find employment, and while there
discovers that Nichols is trying to
rob Anthony as he did his father.
Resolving to punish Nichols, the
cousins decide to chango places, An
thony going to Cal's hdme and Cal
assuming the place of Anthony. From
this situation is evolved a story that
proves not only novel but rich in
thrilling action.
GARDEN.
There Is sufficient diversity of
scene and action in "A Trick of
Fate," in which .Bessie Barriscale is
starred at Moore's Garden Theater
the first three days of this week, to
satisfy the most exacting taste.
Miss Barriscale is cast in a role
that affords her a 'rather less ham
pered opportunity than she has had
in others of her recent releases.
Not only is the star an entrancing
vision in such costumes as a French
danseuse might be expected to ap
pear in an "Oo-ia-la" number, but the
Parisian night life and the dramatic
subject is further notable for the
fidelity with which it visualizes the
power which It exerts in a climax
that partakes of all of the melodra
matic tensity of a well-conceived po
lice play.
In the supporting cast are many
whose names have always stood for
the most sincere character delinea
tion, Including Alfred Whitman and
Joe Dowling.
SAVOY.
The combination of Charlie Chap
lin in his latest picture. "Shoulder
Vrms." and Tom Mix In "Twisted
Trails" formed a double feature pro
gram at Crandall's Savoy yesterday
that was pleasing- from beginning to
end. "Shoulder Arms" is one of the
best pictures in which Chaplin has
been seen. Taking military life for
its theme. It offers' a wealth of op
portunities for mirth-making. And
while Chaplin is himself responsible
for most of the fun. due credit must
be given to the supporting cast. Edna
Purvlance is again seen' as his lead
ing woman.
The other feature, "Twisted Trails,"
is, of course, a Western subject of
that type in which Tom Mix shines
to particular advantage, giving him
plenty of chances for daring.
CKANDALIS.
While the average photoplay "fan"
shows an unusual aptitude for guess
ing tho outcome of the plot of a
film, the denoue.nent In "The Wom
an in the Index" is so surprisingly
unusual that thrre will be few, in
deed, that foresee it. This picture
formed . the attraction at CrandaJl'o
yesterday and is being shown there
again today.
Paulino Frederick has the chief
rolo that of Sylvia Martin. In the

Frank Keenan, who Is to be seep
this week at the Strand. Theater in
"Todd of the Times," has gone out on
his own, producing his own pictures
under his own name.
Fannie Ward, the star of "Common
Clay," during her stage and screen
career, has played 300 love scenes;
but says, at that, she probably was
not as busy as E. G. Henson, of the
New Opera House, Charles Town. W

"sole owner, manager, treasurer, press
agent, electrician, musical director,
head usher, billposter, janitor."

A new play called "Come On,

It Is a brand-new idea in comedies,
and is due in New -York in three or
four weeks.
Madge Evans is the star in a one
reel "Prlzma natural color picture,"
which Is now being made at the World
-Studio at Fort Lee. It will be re
leased under the title of The Little
Match GlrL" This is aid to be the
first picture ever made In America
where the entire photoplay was pho

George Washington, as a. tempera

his friends, Is the unique picture pre

ballad play, "Washington," which
was given last week at the French
Theater in New York. The new por

Even if it Is disillusioning, we must
admit it's original.
Ethel Barrymore was suffering from
an extremely severe cold all during
her engagement last week at the Na
tional In "The Off Chance," and It was
only her extreme distaste for dis
appointing her audiences that kept
her from canceling the engagement.
She stayed under a doctor's care, and
never went out, except to go from the
hotel to the theater and back In a
closed automobile. At several per
formances her cough was painfully
apparent, but It takes more than a
mere cold to make Barrymore lose
her effectiveness, and the only effect
on the audiences was to make them

A Motion Picture Fund, something

Johnny Berkes is a cousin of Secre

auspicious occasion.
Courtship in a flying airplane is an
innovation in motion pictures. Such
a scene is in Theda Bara's next Wil
iram Fox production, "When Men De

show" should not necessarily be
crowded, if the press agents are to be
believed. But atop the New Amster

tume room of the Ziegfeld "Nine

nightly presents a rather jumbled ap

who looked into the room (while the
chorus was out), wanted to know
why the room was littered with emp

manager had a playbill with him. and
was able to convince the fire official
that the barrels are the costumes
