WHAT IS PLAYING'
IN THE THEATRES
Reade's Strand—Virginia Valll In
“K—the Unknown.”
Ditnias—Buster Keaton In “The
Navigator.”
Crescent—Photoplays and vaude
ville.
At Rcade’s Strand
A very entertaining story, told In
convincing and artistic manner, was
unfolded on the screen last night In
Reade’s Strand Theatre, when “K—
The Unknown,” was given Its Initial
performance.
The pictureplay was adapted from
the famous novel by Mary Roberts
Rhinehart, “K”, which not only was
read by many thousands of persons
but which, according to all evidence,
is Justly entitled to that well-known
characterization, "a human docu
ment.” And if this characterization
is true of the story. It is true of the
screen version. It can be truly said
for the picture that It follows the
story closely, and accordingly, it ap
pears to the writer of this review
that the characterization in both
cases Is a correct one.
Virginia Valli, cast in the part of
Sidney Page, beautiful young wo
man, whose life has been passed in
a small town where she has be
come a social favorite of the young
er residents. The gradations she
portrays, Just one merging from girl
hood, through realization of her
maturity to one who, apparently,
has tasted of the extreme bitterness
of disillusionment, are convincingly
done.
The part of ”K,” silen and mys- 1
terious stranger whose coming to
the little town presages so much of
vital import to the others in the
story, is finely handled by Percy j
Marmont. Margarita Fischer as '
Carlotta Harrison, misguided, but
devotedly In love with Dr. Max Wil
son, portrayM by John Roche, and
Maurice Ryan, Francis Feeney, are
convincing.
At Uie Bitinas
“By far the best comedy he has
ever made,” is the verdict for Bus
ter Keaton in his latest Metro-Gold
wyn picture. “The Navigator,” w-hich
opened last night at the DItmas
Theatre.
For unalloved Joy this six-reel
comedy surpasses fcivthing in a long
long time. Imagino Buster as a help
less dumbbell, being set adrift in a
screwiess ocean liner, and the trou
ble he gets into, and you have an
idea of how funny “The Navigator”
is.
Kathryn McGuire appears as the
heroine . and she has never looked
nor acted better. The story was
written by Jean Havez. Clyde Bruclt
man and Joseph Mitchel. while the
direction was by Donald Crisp and
Buster Keaton. The picture was
presented by Joseph M. Schenck.
WOODBRIDGE
THEATRE

The White
Sister
By F. Marion Crawford
Lillian Gish scores her most
distinguished triumph in
this gripping story by F.
Marion Crawford. Filmed
in Italy, amid the exact lo
cale so graphically described
by the author, with awe in
spiring scenes that include
the eruption of Vesuvius
and an entire city wiped out
by a devastating flood. A
motion picture sensation
that will linger long in the
memory of all who are for
tunate enough to see it.

Move Once Each Year
NEW YORK, Dec. 80 (By The As
sociated Press).—One In every five
Industrial families apparently moves
at least once a year.
A study ty the Metropolitan L,l*e
insurance Company of transfers re
corded among its 12,000.000 Indus
trial policy-holders east of the Rockv
Mountains further reveals that these
fam:lies sieem to hold to no general
"moving days” in spring or fall. They
move impartially all year round.
This "house restlcssntss” among
Its industrial class, rco •'■d<ng to thf
Metropolitan tables, has almost
doubled In the last four years.
