When a fortune is left to your wife
and you haven’t a wife, but you do
have an uncle who is trying to cheat
you out of the money, ’most anything
can happen. This is the idea used by
Scott Darling in “Borrowed Wives,”
and if it's fun and excitement you’re
after this talkie was made expressly
for you. And if it’s truly good en
tertainment you’re after, then go to
the Capitol Theatre, where “Borrow
ed Wives” will be shown Thursday
and Friday.
“Borrowed Wives” is what is known
as a bedroom farce, but it does not
depend alone, on its humor or its far
cical entanglements for entertain
ment. There is also a mystery plot
involved and the last unraveling of
mysterious sounds and disappearance
adds greatly to the complete enjoy
Rex Lease is the poor, harassed
hero and Vera Reynolds the bewild
ered heroine.
When the motion pictures were
neft, back in 1896, it was proudly an
nounced that the camera brought the
whole world to one’s own doorstep. Six
months later a leading french ma
chine was dropped by a large vaude
ville theatre because it offered too few
local views. The big hit had not been
the beautiful foreign shots but a pic
ture made just outside the theatre
Audiences are pretty much the same
today. They prefer their neighbors
to costume and period days. George
Arllss was awarded the honor medal
for “Disraeli,” but his latest vehicle
in which he plays an American ousi
ness man of today is much more suc
cessful, for it is another case of just
outside the door. “The Millionaire,”
now showing at the Paramount thea
tre is the delightful comedy of a re
tired business man who tired of re
tirement. He craved action, and he
got it, and the spectators share his
enjoyment in his adventures.
Menoken Boy Cuts

Forest Field, 10-year-old son of

Six stitches were taken in the
wound to stop the lops of blood and
