THE WASHINGTON TIMES; THURSDAY; JULY -31; 1919.
The New Season Is ; Launched With Two New Today's Program Changes Bring Fine Movie Bills Plays Ml 14 , i . ' - , T I . . J ' The Red Dawn," at the Belasco. fcne of the two new plays which saw first performances in the Capital this eek, Js startling:. It is a forceful expose of the menace of Bolshevism to the United States an expose and With it a warning; presented in a ihrillingly melodramatic manner that .perhaps adds to tne power of its timely warning:. Thomas Dixon's rev elation of the real danger of an or ganized Red outbreak in America is fc play that not only entertains, but performs a real service to America. Melodrama very melo It may be. And as such it may not appeal to those that love the more delicate and ilghly refined type of theatrical of--ferinff. But it Is certain that "The .Red Dawn" will find a following of supporters who not only appreciate it is a diversion, but who also sec it as a much-needed bit of propaganda to offset growing; Red activity in our country. J At the Garrlck, this week, Fred Jackson's new farce ''One a Minute" 'e golngr good. There were some changes since the opening night, and iho comedy now is even more delight ful than on Sunday. Lynne Overman, ihough, is about 90 per cent of the show. One could hardly imagine It -without his particular brand of com idy. But that doesn't detract one whit from the delightful work of ltr. Martin. Miss Wilson and the other Garrickers. f?he National reopens next week ,Vith "A Regular Feller," of which more anon. At Poll's. i'The Begin ning and Mysteries of Life," that sen sational film, continues to entertain end instruct large audienceKeith's s offering another good vaudeville bill this week. "'Now let's see what's in store for ieit week. GARRICK. ' Commencing next Sunday evening. Hie Garrlck players will offer "The Only Girl." the Blossom-Herbert farce with music This play, in three acts, is the first ifcusical effort of the Garrlck players, to addition to the regular cast of prin cipals there will be a. beauty chorus made up entirely of Washington girls. "The Only Girl" has been one of the big Herbert and Blossom suc cesses, having prayed to capacity crowds at both the Lyric and Thlrty rilnth Street Theaters In New York city, as well as record business on tbur. The regular Garrickers, including Karje Fox, Eileen Wilson. Lynne Overman, and the other favorite mem bers will be cast in the principal rcles. JTATIOjrAL. , "A Regular Feller," Charles Emer son Cook's new production, will -play at -the National Theater next week. After a week in Washington, It will go directly to New York to open the regular season of the Cort Theater, Wednesday evening, August 13. The Cort Theater is considered one of the best playhouses on the "Great White Way." and has, for the past seasons, harbored the greatest hits. When "A Regular Feller" is pre sented here, it will be with the identical great cast and production to be seen at the Cort. Ernest Glendln nitxr nlnvK the title role, and James Bradbury. Dudley Clements, Roy Gor-j aon, jsvereii uuiierneia, ruwm nun, Charlotte Granville, Misses Miriam Sears. Margaret Greene, Kittle O'Con nor, George Cukor, Albert Busbee and others are among the actors chosen to interpret Mark Swan's latest com edy of thrills and laughs, which is said to rival "Parlor, Bedroom and Bath" as a laugh-provoker. Summer, rather than bringing a lowering in the standard of motion picture entertainment in Washington, seems Instead to do quite the reverse. Here we are in the midst of the or dinarily slackest entertainment sea son, yet the local movie houses come out with bills that leave one no choice but to become a movie fan of the most rabid variety. For instance, consider the programs at the city's leading houses. Loew's Palace today screens Olive Thomas in "Prudence on Broadway." Here'u ideal summer diversion a light, snappy film showing that a Quaker lass may know considerably more about the world than you imagine And at th'e Columbia there's another delicious Kit of entertainment in "The Microbe." with Viola Dana. Miss Dana, that piquant bit of femininity, may be depended on to give a most attractive portrayal of the little slum girl who was befriended by an author, and who eventually found the biggest happiness. Then consider the Rlalto, where Anita Stewart is going big in "Mary Regan." This picture of New York's gay life and a girl's struggle against H certain hereditary trait of char acter all from a noted novel Is im pressing big audiences this week. The Metropolitan is scoring heav ily with Clara Kin, ball Young's r turn to the screen in "The Better Wife," a forceful drama that appeals all the more after enjoying the lighter forms of film 'entertainment. Truly, one cannot help bat thank Washington movie managers for pre senting so varied and entertaining an array of offerings. CRAUfDALIS METROPOLITAN, 3IiAItA KIMBALL YOUKG. Clara Kimball Young, one of the most distinguished actresses In silent drama, will continue, the pictured star at Crandall's Metropolitan Theater throughout the current week in "The Better Wife," a screen version of Le ncre Coffee's novel, "The Love Quest." The production Is one of the handsom est Washington has seen, and the cast pictured in the star's support is one of stellar attainment. The first four days of next week WlU be featured by first showings In Washington of "The Peace of Roar ing River," in which the leading role is taken upon the screen by Pauline Frederick. The bill will, as usual, be completed by a comedy, current events, a Mutt and Jeff cartoon and special musical features. Beginning Thursday. Florence Reed win be pictured in "The Woman Un der Oath," a drama dealing with the unusual experience of the first woman Juror ever sworn in In New York. B F KEITITS. Next week at B. F. Keith's Theater the dainty commedienne, Hennine Shone, and company will present her new success, "Peggy O'Brien." Pearl Regay and Lester Sheehan will offer a dance spectacle. Alan Rogers, the dis tinguished tenor, will present "Fifteen Minutes of Concert," "the Primrose Four, "One Thousands Pounds of Har mony." will be Included. Others will be Arthur Havel and company, Al Shayne, Jennie Middleton, Cummlngs (Continued on Next Page.) LOEWS COLUMBIA. VIOLA DANA. Viola Dana, winsome star of waif roles, will be seen beginning today at Loew's Columbia Theater in "The Mi crobe," a clever bit by Henry Altimus, recently published as a short story in Ainslee's Magazine. Slum scenes of unusual accuracy have been incor porated in this five-reel feature. Beginning Sunday, a four-day run offers some really thrilling 'entertain ment of the Secret Service type In the adventures of "The Man Who Stayed at Home," a detective story of more than usual merit starring the well knowing King Bag-got. Daring ro mance and breathless suspense are said to be in evidence every moment. MOORE'S RIALTO. AXITA STEWART. Anita Stewart, in "Mary Regan," from the famous novel of the same name by LeRoy Scott, will continue tc be the chief attraction at Moore's Rialto Theater the rest of the week. Miss Stewart has the appealing role of a girl trying to proVe that her father's strain of criminality Is not in her own blood and still remain strong enough to resist the temptations and threats of a clever band of polite robbers who Inhabit New York's up per stratum. Next wek will be distinguished by the presentation of "Fires of Faith," by Charles E. Whittaker, featuring (Continued on Next Page.) AMUSEMENTS Week Beginning Suada. Seat 2otT.

That things are not what they seem on the speaking stage is really as old as Shakespeare. Not a modern com medienne knows this any better than does Viola Dana, who a few seasons ago won stage fame in a two seasons' run of "The Poor Little Rich Girl," in -which she delighted New York in the star role. Being especially adapt ed to "waif" parts, Miss JDana was induced to accept the lead in "Molly, the Drummer Boy," .and made her first screen appearance. It was then that the dainty star made some real discoveries. The films are so differ ent from the stage. No footlights and optical effects to help create ar tistic expression. The searching lens and sharp focus get everything "just as it is." ' The exacting requirements of the camera demanded a real sacrifice of Viola Dana when she prepared for her role in "The Microbe," in which she will be seen at Loew's Columbia to- AMUSEMENTS 4th and Last Week MBBSBSBSBSBSBSBSBSJftYslssssssssssssssssW CHANGE OF HOURS: Women Only 3, 5, 7 P.
