"SWEET KITTY BELLAIRS"
SCORES HEAVILY
j"AMEER" GIVES FERRIS HART.
MAN BIG OPPORTUNITY
"Wine, Woman and Song" Is Three
Hours of Cleverness and
Beauty—Theatrical
News
SHIRLEY OLYMPIUS
It may seem just a bit fulsome to
say "Sweet Kitty Bellairs," David
Belasco'a sparkling dramatization of
Edgerton Castle's novel, 'The Bath
Comedy," is one of the best, if not the
best, stock production made in a long
time in Los Angeles. I shall theref
call It the best thing the Burbank mm
pany has produced. From several
standpoints "Sweet Kitty Bellairs" Is
as near perfect as stock production can
be made. . Scenieally it is a marvel of
the art. The costumes could not be
improved. And as for acting—well, it
is a triumph for several members of
the Durban k forces.
It seemed t o me as I sat through the
performance yesterday that every
member of the company and every
"extra" man and woman on the stage
was doing his and her very best to
make "Sweet Kitty Bellairs" the one
best effort of the combined MoroBCO
and Belasco forces. In other words
each player tried to make felt the
touch of David Belasco's genius.
Especially was this true of the minuet.
It was far and away the prettiest
dance ever seen on the Burbank stage,
a tribute to hard work and long prac
tice.
"Sweet Kitty Bellalrs" i 8 a comedy
of the heart. Its scenes are laid in the
famous British spa of Bath, where the
beaux and belles of the Gainsborough
period gathered, the one time in all
English history dear to the heart of
the modern novelist. The heroine is
Mistress Kitty Bellalrs, a piquant Irish
widow. She Is adored by the officers of
the Inniskillings regiment, of which
her husband was a member. When she
with some of the officers of her late
husband's regiment go to Bath to "flirt
a bit and taik about their neighbors,"
as Kitty puts it, she deposes the local
social queen for a time. As a result
she is flouted by the English women
and championed by the soldiery. She
is one of those merry widows who re
main heart whole and fancy free until
she meets and loves Lord Verney, a
member of the Fifty-first regiment, the
crack organization of the British army.
He reciprocates the feeling. She goes
to his rooms late at night in order to
persuade him not to fight a useless
duel. She is spied upon and discovered.
Then all but a few of the faithful de
sert her. In the end when all looks
darkest the dawn of perfect under
standing breaks. She wins back her
reputation, her friends and her sweet
heart.
In a short prologue an, explanation
of'the play is given. The prologue was
beautifully spoken by Lucretia Del
Valle. Roy Henry acted as a master
of ceremonies, adding a touch of "ye
olden tyme" which created immediate
Belasco atmosphere and prepared for
the delectable things to follow.
Miss Frances Nordstrom has in her
keeping the part of "Sweet Kitty Bel
lairs," and she makes the most of
her opportunities. She is at all times
what the name implies—Sweet KiLty.
Had she Just come from a sitting with
the famous Thomas Gainsborough she
could not have looked her part any
better. The masses of gold-red Tiair,
the huge picture hat and the gowns,
with their strangely beautiful style
were In exact keeping with the idea
we all have of Gainsborough's women,
for a paint and canvas replica of which
we—or rather J. Picrpont Morgan and
others pay fabulous prices. It is no
wonder men fought duels for the fair
sex in Georgian days. They were
worth it, in face and figure. And I
mean no disparagement of Rooseveltian
women with their hipless gowns and
their suffragist ideas.
To create comedy is one of the great
est tasks known to the stage. A
player makes his audience laugh only
after long study and hard work. He
must seem not to be working at all,
yet he must be working like a trac
tion engine every minute he is on the
stage. It is a difficult task to make
a laugh. And this applies to actresses
as well as the other sex. Therefore
Miss Nordstrom is to be congratulated,
for she has put into the lines the
laughter they deserve. She worked
yesterday against the influence of ill
ness, for she has been far from a nor
mal condition for several days. What
her Kitty will be when she recovers
her health may be guessed. It was
nearly a triumph yesterday.
Running through the play are clever,
epigramatieal lines by the score. They
are lines which only Irish wit could
fashion. And it takes an Irish woman
to speak them. Thank fortune Miss
Nordstrom is Irish. She makes her
lines sparkle like, crystals, and her
personality stand out like a cameo.
One might close his eyes and fancy
Peg Wofflngton were talking while
Miss Nordstrom is on the stage. Par
ticularly is this true when she is being
badgered by the social elite of Bath.
A. Byron Beasley as Lord Verney,
Kitty's" quickly subjugated sweetheart,
is exceptionally good. With the
clothes of the Georgian period he put
on all its graces. In his lirst scene he
simulates the fright of first love-most
delightfully. And in the scene in his
room he shows the sincerity of deep
love by his manly manner.
If Ethel yon Waldron were weeping
real tears all the time she is sup
posed to, she would have sore eyes and
drained lachrymal glands the rest of
her natural life. She is compelled to
weep all over the place most all the
time. As a trusting wife who for a
time is so afraid of her husband she
lies her friend Kitty Bellairs out of a
character, Miss yon Waldron is just
what the part calls for. When she de
nies having been with Mistress Bel
lairs she shows in voice and manner
the shrinking, cowardly liar, more self
ish than afraid. Then in her final
scene, when she becomes more woman
than wife and denounces her busfiand's
perfidy and deceit, she rises majestic
ally from a creature without a mind of
her own to a woman who refuses to he
deceived longer. These two scenes test
Miss yon Waldron'l ability and show
she has a quantity of it kept latent for
just such emergencies.
But one criticism may be made of
Joseph do Grasse, who essays Captain
Spicer, the tattling, spying scandal
monger. There is a smack of line de
livery such as might be found in a
Shakespearean production. In Mr. de
Grasse'a articulation. Otherwise he
gives a most creditable performance,
for he makes it clear he is the worst
son of a villain—the sort who stabs In
the dark and hides behind innuendo
and a woman's skirts. His type is not
unknown In society today, more's the
Lovell Alice Taylor has gainPrl new
laurels because of her portrayal of
Lady Bab, the sharp-tongued, vixenish

Actress Who Scored Big Hit
As "Sweet Kitty Bellairs"
V-r| \>> J ill ,•<
never forgets. As usual he carried
off his share of the honors and a little
bit more, as the fearless, lovable Cap
tatin Denis O'Hara. David Hartford
as Colonel Villiers was excellent. His
drunken scene was one of the most
laughable bits of the entire piece. Da
vid Landau did well with the jealous
Sir Jasper Btandish, who goes about
seeking somebody's life for supposed
insults to his wife, when all the time
he is carrying on a rather serious flir
tation with another woman. Miss Lou
ise Royce and others of the company
were well cast and made good in their
respective parts.
Taken by and large, "Sweet Kitty
Bellalrs" is one of the most delightful
comedies encountered in a long jour
ney to many theaters,-and it should
not be missed by those seeking amuse
ment which makes tears start, only to
be stopped by a laugh.
Ferris Hartman, In the character of
Iffe Khan, ameer of Afghanistan, at
the Grand this week is n barrel of fun
and a whole show by -himself, and with
the able assistance of his company
"The Ameer" becomes a roaring
comedy in which is mingled now and
then catchy Bongs, making it in all
as good an entertainment as has been
staged at the Grand in many moons.
The opera is in three acts mid treats
of the difficulties the ameer has in
replenishing his depleted treasury. In
order to raise money he forma a
brigandage association with the firm
of Cut & Slash, of which he becomes
the secret head. He hopes by this
means and his expected marriage to an
American heiress to secure sufficient
funds to pay the yearly tribute exacted
by the British government. This pro
cedure to raise the necessary tribute
rushes him into thrilling adventures
and extremely amusing tribulations
from which he finally emerges tri
umphantly.
Joseph Fouarty. in his droll way,
plays exeeedinding well the part of
Heezaburd, lord high chamberlain, and
it is to the untiring devotion of this
character that the ameer can -give
thanks for the largest portion of his
many troubles, although CraCKasmlle,
the jester, played cleverly by Walter
DeLeon, is another that helps make a
mess of thing's.
Miss Myrtle Dingwall, the American
heiress in the first act sings -Cupid
Will Guide You" most charmingly, and
yesterday with this bit Of sung com
pletely won her hearers. Lut Miss
Dingwall was not the only one that
Scored a song hit. Miss Carmen Phil
lips, singing -Moonlight Love and
Miss "Muggins" Pavies, leading the
Chorus in the act act, were both en
cored time and time again.
"Walter UeLeon's rendition or his own
composition, "NO One Loves Me. was
the best received selection of tne pro
gram.
Take half a dozen clever imperson
ators some catchy music, a bevy of
pretty girls, a spotlight and a beauti
ful woman and mix them all together
[ md you have "Wine, Woman and
Song" the current attraction at the
Majestic theater. By liberal use of
stage license the production might be
called vaudeville, but high class bur
lesque seems to lit it better "Wine,
Woman and Song" is more like one of
the old Weber and Fields pVoductions
than anything Been In Los Angeles in
many a long day. Bonita corresponds
to Lillian Russell, and others seem
much 1 ik, ■ various members of the cast
who made millions and fame, for
Weber and Fields.
"Wine Woman and Souk" is most
thoroughly enjoyable. It taxes the
risibilities of the audience. There la
no plot. No reasons are given and
none are needed for tho entrance and
exit of the various characters. It is
three hours of cleverness, the best
portion of which comes between the
lirst and < id curtains. This part
of the entertainment is called "Going
Into Vaudeville," impersonations of
well known stage characters are given.
The best are Riven by Lew Hearn,
who portrays Sheriff Tucker, the town
constable; DeWltt Jones, who imper
sonates David Warfield, and Pedro
Qazino, looking for his cousin, and
Bonita, wha looks the part of a
Christie girl. Bonlta's principal duty
is to sing a little and be beautiful.
She succeeds in both.
"The Man of the Hour," the' George
Broadhurst play of love and politics
that has crowded the Belasco for four
weeks, will open for the fifth and last
week of its remarkably successful run
tonight. The management announced
last night that although "The Man of
the Hour" during the forty consecutive
performances already given lias broken
all previous attendance records and
present Indications show no let up in
tiv interest taken in the presentation,
tills will positively lie (he last week.
This announcement is made necessary
by the fact that there arc si 111 a long
number of Broadhurst successes to !>'■
given many of which have never been
seen in Los Angeles. The present pro
duction of •'The Man uf the Hour" has
proved a veritable triumph for Mr.

The coming of Julius Steger to the

The movement commenced in Los

resulted in the formation of the
American league for the abolishment
of child marriage in India, is gaining
steadily in that country, and, accord

Mary B. Uarbutt, wha has been one of
the most ardent supporters Of the soci

to those engaged in the work.
Mrs. Caroline P. Wallace, one of the
organizers of the league, who has been
in Calcutta With Miss Carrie Tennant
for the last year, for the purpose of
creating sentiment against child mar
riage, writes that 2000 persons attended
a Hindu conference at Lahore in Oc

The president of the conference said
In his opening address:
"Nothing can be accomplished for
the emancipation of child wives in
India unless our women are educated,
caste prejudices thrown off, intem

Among the resolutions adopted was
one in support of the education of
girls until a- later age and the placing
of the minimum marriageable ages at

the purchase of a lot and the con
struction of an administration build
ing is within its rights, is the opinion
City Attorney Hewitt probably will
give the city council at its meeting
Tuesday.
An opinion to this effect by J. W.
Shenk, assistant city attorney, wa<
given to the water commission and
City Attorney Hewitt concurred in thj
opinion.
It is not likely this opinion will
make the councllmen smile, especially
those on the finance committee., and
Councilman Washburn, chairman of
the finance committee, especially will
not be pleased, as he believes the sev
eral hundred thousand dollars which the
water board proposes to expend for
lot and building could be better ap
plied to the Owens river bond fund.
