I At The Movies I
There were many reasons why
Shirley Mason, the petite William
Fox star, was eager to make her
latest starring picture, “That French
Lady,” wich conies to the Caiptol
Theatre tonight. The first is that
the photoplay is au adaptation of a
well known Broadway success, “Thu
Strange Woman,” by W. .J. llurl
burt. Versatile actresses always 4re
pleased with the opportunity to put
well known stage characters on the
screen. The second reason and, in
the opinion of Miss Mason, the most
: important, is that she plays a
French woman and can revel to her
j heart’s content in pretty clothes.
Norma Talmadge lives a whole
lifetime in one film for the first
time in her varied experience. The
picture, “Secrets” is a play that calls
lor the most difficult characteriza
tion of her career.
And if we are to believe the pre
view accounts, and that isn’t so hard
in view of past performances, the
emotional Norma is just as charming
in the one age as the other.
The story starts in England, goes
back by way of the heroine’s diary
to the romantic days of the 18G0’s
moves to the frontier of Western
America, and winds up where it be
gan in the London of modern times.
Thus it is that* four different
Norma Talmadge’s in four different
periods, appear in “Secrets” coming
to the Eltinge Theatre for Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday.
There is Norma, the London school
girl, a capricious young peeress, who
elopes with her father’s clerk on a
high wheel bicycle and sails for
There is Norma, the young wife
and mother, pioneering in a far-off
Wyoming cabin—a fighting Norma
who takes pistol in hand and aligns
herself with the men who battle to
save her husband and babe from an
Next there is the Norma of middle
age, back in London in the 1870’s.
This time the little mother, who
lost her first born in the bleak foot
hills of the Rockies, is seen in the
settings of luxury as the matron of
a growing family. She is still the
fighting mother, but fighting this
time to save her constant husband
from disgracing himself in an in
trigue with a notorious beauty. Just
as she fought for her infant in far
away Wyoming, so Norma battles
again for her home and her children
—and her husband’s love.
And lastly, there is Norma, aged,
wrinkled, white-haired, marked by
the battles of life but withal still
beautiful, who sits ut the bedside
of her husband, doing her best to
help him fight off death —and suc
The whole story is splendid glori
fication of the steadfast love and
unshaken loyalty of a good wife,
and of all the pictures in which she
has appeared Norma says she likes
I “Secrets” best.

During the recent harvesting sea
son in the French farming country
the farmers were assisted by French
soldiers released from duty tempor
arily for that purpose.
The French government decided to
do this because of the shortage of
labor in agricultural districts. And
expert farm hands were easily found
in the army because 45 per cent of
the private soldiers are recruited
from the peasant class.
A similar .«♦<*■- was taken by the'
government immediately after the
war when large numbers of soldiers
were given permission to return
home on special leave to help with j

But this very shortage of farm-j
hands makes all the more remark
able the recent enactment of vexa-:
tious regulations which have to be
observed by foreigners coming into j
France to live and work there.
These new rules will probably;
scare off the very people France
needs—peasant farmhands from Italy
and the Basque provinces of Spain.
Speaking of the French army some
body has just resurrected a funny
yajrn about President Douinergue. He
comes from southern France, from
Aix in Provence, and it is there that
he served his time in the French
army when a lad. The testy old col
onel placed the smallest men in the
company, and there were a number
of them, in a section which was call
ed “Bouts de cigares”—“Cigar butts.”
