\t Tlie Strain! Theatre.
Audrey Munson, whose experien
I ces as an artist's model have filled
magazines and newspapers through
out the world, has at last recorded
her life-story on the screen in the
form of a six-reel photoplay called
Heedless Moths.”
Miss Munson has undergone more
experiences as an artist'3 subject and
knowrf more about this mysterious
vocation than any other person, as
she him posed for more statues,
paintings and works of art than any
model in the world.
In “Heedless Moths” th>B fascina
ting girl lives over again her in
! tensely interesting and dramatic life
[and gives the spectator a realistic
glimpse of the doings of studiolanil.
There is no exaggeration in any
of the unbelievable incidents .por
trayed. Miss Munson, who takes
the leading role in the picture, has
built the story out of the events of
her rtwn life, using many of the
studios iu which she posed as set
tings for the picture. ,
Anyone seeing “Heedless Moths”
will feel that he has learned a new
chapter of life that is unfamiliar
to most of us.
Starting Monday Jewel Carmen,
tljr magnetic screen star whose la
test story under Itoland West’s di
rection for Hirst National will bo
shown at the .Strand theatre for
three days, beginning Monday with
tlie mystifying title of a young bride
who is taken by her husband, Tom*
Smith, to Halm Beach for their
honeymoon.
"Little Mrs. Smith,” as slno is
known to the pleasure seekers, is
enthralled by her first taste of “high
life.” and Jumps into the whirlpool
of gayety with .childish spontaneity,
nearly breaking the bank at the
roulette wheel.
Monday at Crescent
J)iana A!:en, who made such *a tre
mendous hit in "Man and Woman,"
assumes 1ni"Th« Amazing Lovers,”
tlie new "Jans Picture," which is to
be seen at the Crescent on Monday,
for two days, a role diametrically op
posite to the one which brought her
such great favor in "Man and Wo
man:" but she proves herself entire
ly capable of portraying the passion
ate love which the denizens of
Greenwich Village are supposed to
show-In th . lr affairs of the heart.
M:ss Alien haj the distinction of
being supported by an ail star cast,
which adds the tremendous effec
tiveness of their remarkable ability
to as romantic and thrilling a story
as has been written for the screen.
The director, E. A. Rolfe, and the
author, Charles A. Logue, are said to
have excelled themselves in this of
fering.
The vaudeville program*for Mon
dany and Tuesday is one of the best
that can be obtained. Never before
‘has this city seen such big acts as
are being introduced at tile Crescent
theatre by the manager; Louis M.
Granat. Monday’s shotT is one that
it will be hard to equal. Tn addi
tion tg the vaudeville and motion
picture program, a dancing contest
will also be held.
Coming to Majestic
Of interest to the kiddies and the
grown-nps as well, comes the an
nouncement that Thurston, the fa
mous magician, will appear at the
Majestic theatre next Wednesday
and Thursday, January 11 >nd 12.
Many now mysteries have been add
--
cd to bin already large collection.
The American wonder worker has
been a figure in pur history ever
since Joe Bandy pulled live rabbits
out of the horse feed bags of Oeorge
Washington’s army. In the Middle
Ages magicians were burned at the
stake, but with the advance of civi
lization magic became shorn or its
i superstition and in the hands of Its
I professors developed into a popular
form of entertainment. Theatre
goers will recall Herrmann, and th$
i great Keller, botli supreme masters
I in the mystic art, with their passing
from the public eye came Thurston,
who with a natural taleht and the
aid of a highly cultivated mind, in
troduced to the world of magic much
that is new and novel. A creator of
Ponderous illusions standing dis
tinctly in a class ny himself, in pro
■ during his big spectacular mysteries
Ihe .ms spent a fortune.
Thurston ha^ given much of his
time of late to investigating spirit
ism and confesses that ho has met
with much success He includes in
his performance this season many
of the greates. mysteries of the pres
ent day mediums.
Big Feature Bill at Ditmas Monday.
The Ditmas theatre wishes to is
sue the warning to its patrons that
the sky is the absolute and positive
limit of the laughter that will be
permitted when “Never AVeakcn”
will bo presented on Monday.
No»4le*s to say, the star of "Nev
er Weaken" is Harold Lloyd, the
[ comedian who lias introduced to
! photoplaygoers the new laugh that
! comes clean and full from a happy
' heart and carries no blush with it.
The laughs that’ will accompany
(he showing of "Never AVeaken,"
however, will be energized with
spine-tingling /thrills, for in this
three-reel Associated Exhibitors
comedy, Lloyd performs some amaz
ing stunts on the iron skeleton of a
skyscraper in the process of con
struction.
Pretty Mildred Davis lends leading
feminine support. Others are Roy
Brooks, Mark Jones and Charles
Stevenson. "Never AjVcaken” is the
result of the combined imaginations
of Hal Roach, its producer, and Sam
Taylor, and the direction of Fred
Newmeyer.
Patrons of Ditmas theatre will be
Interested to learn that Wallace
Ueil. Gloria Swanson and Elliott
Dexter, the two first named being
popular stars, and the latter one of
the leading man of the screen, wiU
be seen in the leading roles of*"Don't
Tell Everything,’’ a superb Para
mount picturo which will be shown
at the theatre named for six days,
the lovely screen actress, appears as
featured player.
There is nothing like "Without
Limit," past or present. The scenes
are uniquely mounted, surpassingly
well acted. The innocent girl who
gets drunk and marries a forger
and coward: the awakening -“to re
ality In a gambling house; the wrath
of the minister who thinks the girl
has trapped his son into marriage;
the frozen calm gambler looking up
on life as upon a curious accident;
the temptation to the girl in her gar
ret—here are situations that make j
the picture an exceptions, treat for)
thG fastidious picturegoer. ,
Praise must be given the able all
star cast, headed by Anna Q. Nils
son and including Robert Frafler,
Frank Currier, Kate Blancke.
Charles Lane, Robert Sellable,
Thomas W. Ross and Nellie Ander
son. Also to Andre Barlatler for
the ahle photography, and to M. P.
Staulcup for the entrancing art in
teriors.
PERSONALS
Miss Muriel Haney, of Lewis street
was the guefct of Miss Antoinette
Hess o£ Verona, Thursday night.
beginning Monday next. - This is a
picture of rare entertainment value,
and aside from the dramatic inter
est of the story, its tender and pute
appeal, its wholesome comedy and
delicious satire, it conveys a moral
of tremendous force. We don't be
lieve in telling everything about our
picture attractions in advance, but
we make no secret of the fact that
“Don’t Tell Everything" is one of
the finest pictures ever booked by
us. And we are sure bur -patrons
will back up our judgment.
i Snper'Spechil at Grand
A splendid triumph of the screen
— that is the most fitting phrase
descriptive of the Masterly photo
play "Without Elmlt,’ which open
ed yesterday at the Grand theatre
as the feature attraction for a run
of two days. It took the audience
by storm enwrapped the with
interest as the drama of a forlorn,
girl amid the colld-souled deni
zens of a gambling palace developed
tlirillingly, with unlooked for sur
prises.
And no wonder considering what
went into the maklnlg of the picture,
ft was adapted from the unusual
short story of Calvin Johnston which
recently was published in The Sat
urday Evening Post, and which
made such a profound impression
all who read it; it is a George D.
Baker production for S-E Pictures,
released by Metro; Anna Q. Nilsson,
