THEATRES
“The Sheik” at Oilman
George Melford, producer of the
big Paramount picture, "The Sheik”
in which Agnes Ayres and Rudolph
Valentino are the featured players,
struck a high note of realism In his
production of the screen version of a
famous novel which will bo shown at
(he Dltmas theatre beginning to
day. Highly effective, it is said, are
the scenes in the tent of the Sheik
and in the desert stronghold of
Omair, the bandit. A most realistic
windstorm is one of the features of
the tent episode, with the sand whip
ping across the waste and almost
tearing the heavy canvas from its
moorings." The love element is un
usually powerful. And a feature
sure to prove irresistible is the gath
ering of the tribesmen, the desert
wild riders who come whirling across
the sea of sand, their loose garments
flaunting in the wind.
Agnes Ayers, talented and beau
tiful, who wot} stardom by her ar- I
tistic work in Cecil B. lie Mllle's I
Paramount production of "Forbid- j
den Fruit,” has the effective role of I
Diana May<4, a headstrong but brave
and spirited English girl who en
counters the Sheik in the desert and
learns finally to lovo him after a
somewhat harrowing experience and
complete subjugation to his indom
itable will. He is a veritable master
of men—and women. None can
stand against ills power which in his
empire of sand is almost invincible.
Wild riding and fighting gripping
scenes in desert sandstorms, action
piled on action—such are the ingred
ients of this photoplay by Monte M.
Natterjolin, adapted from K. MV
Hull's novel. And Miss Ayres has a
role that is difficult, filled with hard
work and tense acting, to which she
dres, it is said, moro than full Jus
tice.
At the Strand
“Why Announce Your Marriage,’
the feature picture production at the
Strand theatre today. Tuesday and
Wednesday, is a society comedy
bas'd upon the actual experience
of ono cf America's most noted wo
men writers. It is a Selznick Pic
ture, starring Elaine Hammersteln,
and is one of tha moat interesting
stories in which this vivacious young
woman Iras ever appeared. Alap
CT-.siand directed flu production and
collaborated with Lewis Allen
Browne in writing the script.
The central character of “Why An
nounce Your Marriage?” is a very
modern young woman, herself a suc
cessful artist, who objects to marry
ing the man ebe loves because she
seen so many unsuccessful marriages
all about'her She decides that the
reason s-1 many married couples are
unhappy' is that they see too much of
ono another. So she agrees to marry
the young man who has been besieg
ing her for a long time, if lie will
agree to keep their marriage secret,
each maintaining a separate estab
lishment.
On this basis they marry. Then the
complications begin. The husband is
visiting ills wife at her apartment at
an hour that is not strictly according
to the best conventions, and lounging
in his dressing gown, when a crow;d
of merry-makerr, force their way in
to take the wite out on a party. The
husband manages to hide, but he for
gets to conceal the end of a still
smoking cigar and also his hat and
stick are discovered. Similar "scan
dals” occur ill his own apartment,
until the two are driven distracted by
the gossip. Still they stand by their
?un3. /1 last something happens
more sensational than any of the
previous incidents and the truth is
revealed
