Henry Hull's role is that of a young man who has run through a large fortune George Marion } Charader Ad George Marion, who will be seen in "When We Are Young." with Henry Hull. at the Shubert-Belasco Theater this week, beginning tomorrow. is one of those modest persons who, despitE the fact that he ham staged some of the greatest successes known to tht. American stage, is one of the abi :st actors known to our time. In the act I~g line Mr. Marion's greatest suc cess made in recent time was that in! "Toby's Bow." He is easily the1 greatest character actor of our day. Georgia Marion began his stage career in San Francisco as a pan tomimst. 1t was with one of. the~ many minstrel troupes which flourish ed by the Golden Gate in those day. He played the gamut of charpeters required in such organiziations,. and at length took the long trip to Ne* York. and there was as great a suc cess as he had been on his native heath. Mr. Afarion's first appearance in New York was In 1335 at the old San Francisco Minstrel Hall. There he gave his famous Italian specialty which had created a furore, as -the Italian dialect was not then so com monly used on the stage. Among- the famous stories as tol at that time were "Christopho Colombo," "George Washington," -and "'the. Italian Base ball Game." The next three years following this engagement Mr. Marion spent with ljeyt's "A Brass Monkey." Mr. Marion was two years director of the famous floston Museum. Then ne created the part of the minister to Dahomey Jin "A Texas Steer;" appeared as the French scientist. Brady. in "Polar 4tar," and inade a tour with Frohman Comedians in "Never Again." Mr.I Marion's most pronouncend success as an actor was his character of an oldI darkey in "Bilue Grass." After that engagement Mr. Marion avge up acting entirely and devoted h'mself to the direction of plays. Some of the long list of plays and musical pieces wrhich George Marion has staged are "Madame X," "Every woman," "The Sultan of Sulu," 'i he Prince of Pilsen," and Anna Held's successes, "The Little Duche s,." and "The Fencing Girl." The management of ths, Nbrton Holmes Travelogues annouces his subjects for this season. There will be lye subjects in each course, which will be given in all the cities in which Mr. Holmes spears.

While "The Mandarin" has some thing of mystery and a psychological treatment of a chain of dramatic ac tion, it i told that its other world spoken of does not indicate a spirit. ualiatic story, but instead shows an abnormal existence created by a young man whose pursuit of women grows more and more exciting so that he finally forgets and steps beyond the line of reality. "The Mandarin" was produced abroad by Max Reinhartd. foremost genius of the European stage, and its seccess was immediate, its appeal be ing equally to lovers of the unusual in dramatic story and to the intIl lectual who recognized in it food for 'much thought. The play is to be given as abroad. with the special music written for it by Fritz Kreisler, the noted violinist, and also the unique decorations, sub stantial stage settings, and special mechanisms originally planned for it. Mr. Bernstein is known to have .ipent many months in preparation for the Alnerican premier of "The Man darin," and its cast shows an~uncom mon ghthering of players; it's prinicl pal figure being that of Brandon Ty nan, whose success in Shakespeare, ibsen, light comedies and even in mu sical comedy have put him in a fair way to be judged the most versatile of .modern American players..

As might well be anticipated of' a production emanating from such an unconventional quarter, the "Follies" spurns the accepted blueprints which govern the construction of the revues which .employ a maximum of music and femininity in their makeup. It is without the marked professional flavor which Identifies its contempo raries. . To begin with, it was produced in the Greenwich Village Theater, far from Broadway's madding throng. at theater seating barely 300 persons, in a quarter noted for its eccentric if artistically ambitious inhabitants. For Greenwich Village, let it be known, is the community ywhere lurks the disciple of many an unsung cult and creed. the seething center of radical "Isms" where neither notions or emo tions are tethered by the grim statutes of convention. Its success was immediate. Great crowds flocked nightly to Sheridan Square to witness this krtistic tri untph and to wonder at the daring and ingenuity of its creators. Soon the drab little theater proved un equal to the task of caring for its audiences and the Follies moved up to the incandescent district on Broad way to the Nora Bayes Theater. There it breasted the crest of success for seven months, the mecca aof every pilgrim to the shrine of theatrical novelty and sensation. The "Follies" weaves together a startling variety of amusement. both optical and auricular, in a colorful and unconventional manner. It in tetlaces sharp satire with uproarious burlesque ;crashing salvos of Jans with lyrics that are light and airy: ultra modern fashion creations with the batiks of the ancient Hindus; stately minuets with the exotic dances of the Orient. It is indeed a spiced sequenoe of afhaxing contrasts. In its company of players-the same Ehich kept the Follies at the peak of popularity in the metropolis-Lre .lames Watts, caricaturist of the art of Pavlowa and Farrar; Ted Lewis, the jazs king, and his "laughing trom bones;" Al Herman, celebrated burnt cork comic; Verna Gordon, patron of the fantastic dance; the Hlickey Brothers, Jane Carroll, Mabelle Jau nay, Irene Olsen, WVarner Gault, Emilie Fitsgerald, and the Greenwich Village Quartet. Encompassing this array Lie the twpenty famous artists' models, the most toasted and most photographed group of chorister. extant. Speaking of sworn circulationi st atements, Gertrude Coates, a Titiani haired beauty of the group of artists' models in the Grenwich Village Fol lies, if she cared to, might file a claim with the Librarian of ConigreSs which would make the 2,000,000 a week or 500,000 a day-estimated b) some of our leading newmspers and periodicals-look like the attendance at a prohibition rally in Havana. Miss Coates unquestionably holds the world's reggrd for ornamenting thy' magasine and periodical covers on display at every newsstand. In fact, she might nie an affidavit claiming their gross and get away with it. in appport of this the faets are that before her debut on the stage with the Follies in New York at the Greenwich Village Theater, she was the favored model of such prolific illustrators in color as Jetnles Mont gomery Flagg, Joseph lyd eker, and Malcolm Strauss. in addition to her otauty and regularity of features. it was the red hair that accounted for it all. The elementary colors of the circus printers are red on yellow, and any old lithographer or sine etcher or half-tone printer will tell you that the elementary colors for illustration with some life in it ate red and black black for the key piate, which out lines the beautifual face, and re'd for the touch of pink in the cheeks, the ruiby lips, and the lure of the hsir.
