BERT LYTELL HANDS OUT A DRAMATIC WALLOP
Bob Service's Poem of the Yukon Is a Strong Movie
A man’s efforts to redeem himself after
having sunk to the lowest level is the
basis fpr “The Price of Redemption.’’
starring Bert Lytell, at the Coloinal this
week.
The picture hinges around the adven
tures of Captain Leigh Dering. English
army officer, who sacrifices himself for
the sake of a woman he never saw be
fore and leads his wife and tbe police
to believe he murdered bis father-in-law.
when in reality he was killed by a woman
he betrayed.
The background of the picture is laid
In India and gorgeous settings, coupled
with some really worth While support,
makes “The Price of Redemption’’ the
best thing Mr. Lytell has ever accom
plished.
Seena Owen, as Mrs. Dering, and Cleo
Madison, as the “other woman In the
case,” are prominent members of the cast
which also includes Landers Stevens, Ed
ward Cecil, Micky Moore, Wilbur Hugby
and other well-known players.
“The Price of Redemption" carries with
it a moral that is bound to leave an im
pression when it shows that the love of
a man for his children can accomplish
anything.
The picture offers many opportunities
for the star to rise to dramatic heights
and he does not lose sight of any of
them.
Mr. Lytell's work as the drug fiend
and drunkard apparently beyond re
demption is all that could be desirtd.
Opinion: A picture full of solid en
tertainment and real merit, skillfully
photographed and directed by a master.
A Snub Pollard comedy rounds out the
bill.
808 SERVICE’S POEM
GIVES LVTELI. A BIG CHANCE.
Most critics agree that “The Law of
the Yukon” is the best poem Robert W.
Service has ever written, with the possible
exception of “The Shooting of Dan Mc-
Grew,” and to see Charles Miller's pro
duction of that famous poem is like read
ing the words exactly as Service penned
them when he wrote ‘”Jhe Law of the
Yukon.”
“The Law of the Yukon” is not a
picture of angels and devils, of super
men and women—lt Is a picture of ordi
nary men and women and Os the vast,
frozen silences of the far North.
The rough life of the mining town,
the vast forests, the dance hall and the
gambling den form the background for
one of the most powerful dramas of its
kind ever enacted before the motion pic
ture camera.
The picture is full of tense situations,
where l#c or death hang upon a slender
hair, where a word or a look would send
men's souls to the great beyond, where
the destinies of men and women are as
uncertain as the ice packs of the frozen
rivers of the far North.
The characters move through the story
in a natural manner, performing the va
rious duties exactly as the ordinary man
or woman would, but never for an Instant
does Interest lag.
The scenery of the picture has seldom
been equalled.
We believe we can safely say “The Law
of the Yukon” is the best drama of the
North we have eter seen.
June Eivldge, Warburton Gamble and
Tom O’Malley are among the players in
the cast.
Opinion: A really wonderful picture of
its kind with excellent photography and
above the average direction.
A Mutt and Jeff comedy, “The Singing
Three,” and the Fox News Weekly com
pletes the bill.
Now on view at the Alhambra.
NORMA SUFFERS SO MICH
IX "THE BRANDED WOMAN.”
The audiences of Norma Taimadge
seem to like the little star best when
her heart is heavy and her eyes are dim
with tears and when she is suffering most
in "The Branded Woman” her admirers
go wild with Joy.
Some stars are noted for their smites
but when a tearful glance saddens the
face of the beautiful Norma, the entire
audience suffers beautifully and gasps,
“Oh, isn’t she Just too sweet for any
thing?”
That was the effect that Mins Taimadge
created yesterday when the writer made
his weekly visit to the Circle.
"The Branded Woman” gi.es Miss Tai
madge a chance to “suffer beautifully"
and indeed she does it so well that even
(he men In the audience felt sorry for
Norma.
In this movie, th& star's chief duty is
to keep the family skeletons in the closet
frpm friend husband, who thinks his wife
is an angel, and so she Is. but her mother
was sych a dreadful creature, having
operated a society gambling house in
New York and numbered as her friend*
a rich Santa Claus who should be sitting
calmly by a fireside instead of flirting.
Miss Taimadge plays the role of the
daughter of the woman in question, and for
several reels she fight* against her bus
band discovering the truth about mamma.
When friend husband discovers that
hi* wife is the daughter of such a crea
ture—well, he packs up his trunks and
Norma suffer* some more.
But before the movie flickers the last
yard of film, Norma is again happy lu
the arms of her husband.
Opinion: The work of Percy Mar j
mont as the husband and Vincent Ser
rano as the man who tells the husband
the truth about the family skeleton Is
splendid: the photography could not be
better and Mis* Taimadge suffers beau
anfully.
