Lyons & Moran comedy, 'Don't
PuHtimo Theater Popular .June
Caprice appears as the leading char
acter in "Miss innocence," also a Sun
shine comedy of two reels.
AT Tl IK "IV."
Appearing in what is assorted to be
the best photoplay in which she has
been seen for many months, Elsie
Ferguson will be presented in a pic
turisation of Robert VV. Chambers'
famous novel, "The Danger Mark," at
the "B" theater today and tomorrow.
The story is one of unusual attrac
tion, the theme dealing with a young
woman's struggle to master a crav
ing for drink which she had inherited
from a bibulous ancestor.
In "The Danger Mark" Mr. Cham
bers discusses the subject of heredity
from a different angle, and his char
acters move in high social circles, The
man with the unquenchable thirst
does not lose the fortune he has
amassed, but through the taint of
heredity his beautiful daughter has a
craving for alcoholic drinks, which,
through secret indulgence becomes a
confirmed habit.
As adapted to motion pictures, the
story provides a vehicle wherein Miss
Ferguson appears in luxurious sur
roundings, attired in beautiful gowns,
and the roie demands the full display
of her emotional talent. The climax
is attained when she realizes she has
reached "the danger mark," and
strives desperately to break her
shackles in order to be worthy of the
man she loves. Her support is excel
lent. There will also be shown a reel of
"Weekly Kvents."
This time Miss Caprice is seen In
"Miss Innocence," a new photoplay of
high dramatic quality.'
The story has to do with the off
spring of u woman of vagaries who
leaves the child in tile care of nuns.
Curiosity of the outer world causes
the child, now grown into charming
girlhood, to scale the walls of the
convent, to join a party of which she
had been apprised in confidence.
Thenceforth she learns many things
of the world that might cause one to
enter nunneries, rather than leave
them. Without mother love to protect
her. alone and inexperienced, this
rhild of the convent finds herself
after a battle against the artificial
forces that seek to corrode her.
"Miss Innocence" is the feature ol
an interesting and varied bill.
There will also be produced a Sun'
shine comedy of two reels.
