THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGltAM, RICHMOND, IND., FRIDAY, DEC. 30, 1921.
PAGE NINE Theatrical Attractions MURRAY VAUDEVILLE . Marietta's Mannikins, and Coacl and Verdi's "Stringing Comedy" are the two main attractions at the Murray theatre the lst half of this week. The mannikins are most ingeniously operated by the use of strings, and are the wonder of the season. A mini ature theatre stsge with side boxes is reproduced. In the boxes are replicas of current cartoons, in puppet form, while the stage presents an interesting series of mannikins in action. An orchestra composed of dummies is well arranged. The act presents an unusual and comic performance. The "Stringing Comedy" probably was the most popular with the Thurs day afternoon audience. The more the team played their violins (with a huge share of comedy) the more the specta tors applauded. The two boys score a hit. Exceptional comedy Is the spice of the offering. Trick juggling with artistic setting is to be found in the bit presented by Dewitt Young and company. Much rarely to be observed in similar acts tntertains the approving spectators. It's a "light' sketch presented by Saxton and Farrell. Unexpectedly hu morous situations, combined with a snatch of song by both, is tha happy formula. Corinne Griffith in "The Single Track," is the film atraction. MARVIN. MURRETTE. . "What Women Will Do," the Ed ward Jose Production showing at the Murrette theatre is a melodrama of modern New York life. It deals with a young woman who becomes involved in a malicious scheme designed to mulct a wealthy old lady, whose grief over the suicide of her son while he was under the stigma of a charge of murder, has made her easy prey. In working to the climax, in which the girl and her companion are elevat ed through the regenerating influence of the grieving mother, the story intro duces elements of great contemporary juieresc, among tnem spiritualism. Charles A. Logue wrote the story especially for Associated Exhibitors, and Mr. Jose, in casting the charac ters, chose such popular players a-j Anna Q. Nilsson for the role of the girl, Earl Metcalfe for the part of her companion, George Majeronl for the thief plotter, Jane Jennings for the mother, Allan Forrest for the hero, and Riley Hatch for the detective. MURRAY. In "The Single Track," which is now showing at the Murray, Corinne Griffith forsakes for the nonce the life ,of luxury and ease of a debutante ot young society matron and plunges in to the life of a western settlement, with all its attendant frontier customs and excitement.

"Th Single Track" takes its title from a spur of a railroad that, when completed, will connect the heroine's mine, all that remains of a wasted fortune, with the main line. It must be finished before the option on thc right of way expires. Rival interests employ foul means to cause delays, and the fair young mine owner goes to her property personally to take charge. The picture is spectacular to a de gree.For over a month, 200 workmen were building a half mile single track spur on the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad in the Catskills near Archville, and a high trestle over a river. RICHMOND. Mabel Julienne Scott, one of tho screen's most popular young emotional stars is now at the Richmond, theatre in "No Woman Knows," the widely discussed Universal-Jewel film version of Edna Ferber's magazine master piece, "Fanny Herself." "No Woman Knows." was produced at Universal City and on the actual locale of the original story, under tho direction of Tod Browning. Into it he put the same dramatic fire that dis tinguished "The Virgin of Stamboul ," and "Outside the Law. He has pre-; sentea, nowever, ute aeucaie nea.ii strokes, the flashing strokes of humor and the deep pathos of Miss Ferber's work. Miss Scott is admirably suited for the part and playgoers who liked her in "Behold My Wife," and "The Sea Wolfe,' will find her interpretation of "Fanny" a dramatic gem.
