George v. hobart, author of
a number of successful plays
and dramatizations, has been
engaged by the Famous Players-Lasj
ky Corporation to write original photoplays
exclusively I or Paramount
and Artcraft stars. The acquisition
of Mr. Hobart by a motion picture
concern Is of especl.l significance as
It points the desire of photoplay pro
Bgut tb to ODiain tnc services 01 playwrights
of repute.
Though there have been adaptations
of plays of many of the most successful
writers of th" pre: - it and of the
! pas', not a great many playwrights
have written expressly for the screen;
the exceptions being George Middleton,
Beulah Marie DIx and Charles
Kenyon. The addition of Mr. Hobart
to this list is therefore an important
i cne.
By his creation of the fatuous
"Dlnicelspiei" stories which were afterward
translated to the vaudeville
stage, and the "John Henry" stories
d i -which -were lat?: staged and played
' " by the late Dan Daly, Mr. Hobart won
a reputation for cleverness which has
f been tubstantiat- ! by his more rereni
endeavors. He will he Yemembered
as the author of "experience," a modernized
version of the old morality
pl?r?. as the author of "Sally in Our
Alley," "The Candy Shop." "Moonlight
Mary" and "Our Mrs. McC "sney"
which he wrote In collaboration
v i Edna Ferber. This season's
"Follies" owes its clever libretto to
Mr. Hobart.

Big Program at the Nelson.
"The Long Green Trail" at the Nelson

son's struggle against his father's
plan for an ambitious marriage. For
financial reasons the father attempts
to force the marriage by having the

"Keep Moving" furnished another
delight to the Hippodrome patrons
yrsteiday. It is the third and tinal
| bill nresented by Cr-nielo's Musical
Comedy Company, which has established
a reputation for productions of
uniform quality. All three were of a
u .:rcnt order and tb re is no trace
of similarity excepting that the cast
Is the same. The costuming, stage
sellings, music: I numbers and specialties
are all changed. The comedy
In the present hill is of a pleasing nature,
Miss Washburn coming in for
the greater share of applause In this
end. The biggest hit of the specialty
acts was made by Marcelle in the

was only slightly below the
packed houres which have heen the
rule all week, but the fact is easily
. traceable to the downpour of rain
which begaa at about the hour when
people were getting ready to leave

Next week's iction at the Hippodrome
promises to be good. The
f show played in Connellsville week
before last and one of the papers
. printed the following after a reprc,
scnta. ve had seen the show:
"For the first time in many years
Connellsville witnessed a musieal
comedy that was effervescing with
fun that depends solely upon situations
and jokes written in the manI
uscript, when jcstcrd-y at the Arcade
the Margaret Clark .Musical Comedy
Company presented "Preparedness."
The same comedy is now being played
ty the famous "Cherry Blossoms."
an a comedian Montagu Jacobs Ib as
eccentric as he is original, and he and
Sam Burns mako two difficult roles

y ^ Clara Young Picture at Dixie.
\ I "My Official Wife," at the Dixie today,
iB a story that has attracted a
good deal of attention, and is bound
to increase ita following with the
. course of time. It is true to the Russia
and its autocratic system before
th" great war. Eve 1 and anon, a scene
Is run showing the horrors of Siberia.
It gives the sense of contrast that
adds a pleasure to the scenes of luxury
In and about the court. There
arc many moments of suspense. Several
times it looks as If the pretty'
nihilist and the American would be !
cr.ught In the toils, but they eBcape.
A thriller comes with the entrance of
the Czar when all of the court does
?- obeisance. A fitting cllniax is the escape
of the young noble with the
nihilist. Quite dramatic is her exjiv
slon of hatred for him as one of
the aristocracy and his overcoming of
t "W her scruples t his renunciation of
^ ? wealth and rank.
Taken.by and large, the director
has produced an artistic masterwork
as well as a thrilling drama. He has
chosen wisely his r,-.st, fitted each to
his task and furnished exquisite settings
both Interior and exterior. The
