day In the ''set," Donald Crisp, the
director, was waiting and Mr. Eltinge
had been notified that he was to wear
a ball gown.
The dressing room was some 200
feet from the portion of the studio
where the set was built. Mr. Crisp
called him to come over. Mr. Eltinge
stuck a carefully coiffed head out of
the dressing room window, removed a
pipe from his mouth and said: ''Not
on your life. I wouldn't walk across
that place in this get up for a million
dollars."
Finally, however, after much argu
ing Mr. Eltinge consented to appear,
but throw a heavy dressing g»»wn <>\ «m
his costume. He then insisted ibat
his set be boxed in so that his first
day's performance would be concealed
from prying eyes.
But after the novelty wore off it
was nothing to see the star walking
carelessly around the studio, pipe in
mouth and dainty skirts wrapped high
around him, calling *»n some of the
other Paramount stars or watching
them work.
The shock was terrific at first., hut
now even the primmest ingenue iuA»
recovered and Mr. Eltinge. familiarly
known as " 1 Jill," bids fair to become
one of the most popular members of
the studio.
Another O. Henry story. "John Tom
Little Hear," in which A1 Jennings,
the former reformed outlaw, appears.
! completes the bill.

Clara Kimball Young's newest pro- j
duction "The Easiest Way." by Eu
gene Walter, opening today at the
a super production of the 1
American, is
great Belasco success, not merely in
cluding all the details which made the
play the rage for several successive
seasons on the stage, hut adding nu
merous features which could not he
staged in the theater. The combina
tion of the names of Miss Young.
Walter, Capallani, Belasco. with the
American's guarantee of highest stan
dard. makes this offering one of the
biggest screen events of the year.
In "The Easiest Way" Miss Young
has the dramatic and sympathetic role
of Laura Murdock, an actress who.
after her husband's death, finds her
without a protector, and without the
influence necessary to obtain an en
gagement. Her career seems to have
been brought to an end. until Brock
ton. a wealthy broker, becomes in
terested in her. ;uid offers to use his
power w'ith producers in her behalf.
She accepts his aid. though rather re
luctantly. as she realizes that it means
she will eventually have to pay the
price.
While playing a western eng:»ge
ment. I ouïrai falls in love with a poor
man, and before returning to New York
promises to wait for him to make a
fortune. But again she finds herself
helplesa and not hearing from her
lover, turns in despair to Brockton,
when the old bargain is renewed. The
lover strikes it rich, comes east and
discovers the situation. He turns
from Laura in disgust and the play
then speeds to an intensely dramatic
! finale.
