V: mHE production of "The Birth of a
,Y. ' I Nation" established the status of
BW- ; ,* D. W. Griffith as one of the greatCJ
t* \ i est motion picture directors in the
' .world. The Griffith skill as a recont
structor of history, a magical manlpu1%,
, lator ot thousands of players, a mastei
r?.- of suspensive action, magnificent
' .scene and artistic Illustrative detail
ylrtually stands alone,
vffit In "Ihtolerance," the new Griffith
P Spectacle now being presented at the
,< Grand Theatre, Mr. Griffith commands
v 'attention not only as a director hut
as a dramatist And here we have the
E~ first notable instance In pictures of
Ffc. \ > guch a unity.
Ep? ' With "The Birth of a Nation." this
director recreated for cinema life another
man's story; the basic theme of
Kj|Jv "Intolerance," however, as well as the
r'] four analogous stories which elucidate
- it, represent In their entirely the
- thought and craftsmanship of Mr. Grit
I in the present spectacle is an entirely
new form of drama which consists
of four parallel plots kept parallel.
The only connecting link Is the
Intolerance that runs through them all.
.There Is the intolerance of priesthood
'in the story of the Fall of Babylon, the
I intolerance of the Pharisees In the
'Christ episode, the intolerance of religion
in the plot woven about St. Bartholomew*s.eve,
and the intolerance of
the charity workers in the modern
drama. The technique of keeping separate
plots is unquestionably original
/or the movies, it not for the spoken
.drama.
The story of how the world was writ-ten
in hate when it might have been
-written in love is a big subject, and one
apparently that dramatists have left
for Mr. Griffith to tell. As he tells It
ho requires the medlumsbip of the
photoplay to adequately reproduce It
ltr the stage.
- "Intolerance" is a wonderful pic*
ture, and people of this section will be
given the final opportunity tonight to
witness a spectacle that to the present
day is without comparison either as to
the message it conveys and stupendCusness
of production.
Hinnorirom* Man Hawaiian Dancer.
fDave Newman's Tabarin Girls are
doing a wonderful business at the Hippodrome
so far this week, and there is
not likely to be any let up because the
big feature attractions that are scheduled
for succeeding performances are
more alluring than anything yet offered.
Today in the new program
called "An Hawaiian Romance," there
will be introduced an Hawaiian dancer
and a general atmosphere of the Pacific
'Isle will be created by appropriate
scenic fixtures. The dancing number
will be a magnet of considerable
- proportions, as the amusement going
public is at the present time in the
grip of an Hawaiian craze which includes
the enchanting melodies and
the native dances. The latter will be
portrayed to Hippodrome audiences to.
any and tomorrow by an accomplished
dancer who will interpret the light
fantastic and its captivating embellishments
true to type, and devoid of the
h exaggerated toucnes given mis ctar,
actor of dance by many mediocre perIcrmera
who give comparatively poor
exhibitions, but succeed because of the
?: eagerness with which the public "eats
up" everything Hawaiian. Then, too.
anyone whp has attended any of the
company's/performances tills week is
? assured otjftn excellent account being
'?[ rendered by all the other members of
* the troupe. They have demonstrated
& " their cleverness in various lines and
proven themselves possessed of unusual
musical talent. With a company
so uniformly good and presenting so
many well-chosen features it is only
a'natural sequence that they will be
greeted by packed houses during the
remainder of their stay here.
".Youth"?a Study in Environment.
"Youth," at the Dixie," is a study in
Environment which contrasts the soul,V'destroying
effects of too much money
In a large city with the ennobling influence
of hard work in God's out-ofc(oors.
The individual who responds
%'j- to readily to tho change In his surroundlngs
Is the usual typo of rich
. man's son who is all right at heart,
but who has had bis character weakened
by too much money, leisure and
flattery. His change of heart is ma
. terlUly asBlsted by the appearance of
E--.' ft lovely and noble woman doctor in
? the midst of the Southern scenery
r.',:where he has been sent to work out
Kp*V Us salvation. How her contempt for
hie idle ltfe stings bim to worthy ber?:havior
wins her forgiveness and love,
makes up the action in a very pretty
ft - ftnd interesting romance.
June Elvidge plays the part of the
I' ; young woman doctor with delightful
PK "4 reserve and chann. The contrasting
Rfey backgrounds of the mad whirl in the
y- \; city and the placid life in the country
eg':.,. ftre very effectively presented. There
SpVi are a number of particularly artistic
' *> scenes on a house-boat.
? - Erederlek Warde at Princess.
" That the story of "The Heart of Ezra
Greer," at the Princess, is highly im
probable and that the arm of coinclv
- dence is extended almost out of joint
can be excused, first, because the pic!.
, ttire as a whole is generous in human
Sty. ' ' appeal and second because this is quite
: v - too late a date to harp on the logical Ifii
^ ?r motion picture plots.
E:..; . Frederick Warde gives an excellent
K,V ffiS performance of an old butler who is
IL".' educating his daughter in a fasbionat'
- - ble private school. The girl elopes
Rv with a fellow pupil, a young man of
fe-*: . . considerable wealth, and the usual conIs
; sequences follow. He does not marry

happens that the butler-father secures
a position in the man's household and
the climax of the story comes with the
reconciliation and a belated marriage
brought about by the old man, who
shows the irresponsible fellow the er:or
of his ways, with such easy dispatch
that it is almost unreasonable.
Mr. Wardo in several instances,
rbows a tendency to halt the action
while he acts scenes of anguish at
great length. These are in the first
reels, but once the story gets into its
stride the picture runs along smoothly.
l.illian **Mueller the /"Baby
Vamp." appears so attractive that it
would take a young man of considerably
stronger character not to get himrelf
entwined in her meshes. The rest
of the cast give good performances.
ICmlle Chautard. the director, lias supplied
the correct atmosphere, and he
has been instrumental in making the
story seem less improbable.
Comedy and Drama at Nelson.
A Stlngaree episode called "The Sign
of the Kankaroo" offers one of two intcrestinc
dramas showine at the N'el
son today. True Boardinan, who is |
world famous for his creation of "Stingaree"
was for many years a popular
leading man ou the^stage and was featured
in stock companies in Brooklyn
and San Francisco. He waiathus splendidly
endowed for picture work, which
to took up in 1911. In 1915 ho created
the role of "Stingaree" in Kalem's
famous serial written by E. W. Horl-.ung,
anther of "Raffles." The
futher adventures which lie vividly
portrays in these later stories have increased
hlB popularity with Nelson
patrons. Another feature possessed of
appealing interest is a George Ade
Fable called "The Fable of the Girl
Who Took Notes and Got" Wise and
Then Fell Down." Once upon a time
there was a girl whose principal ambition
was to stand ace high with all
the nice men.
So the girl put it down that it was
her cue to be a sort of Lady Emerson,
but when she had a chance to try out
her method of landing in the matrlrponlal
game she found the flashy
young woman who deals out slang and
dances on the table is the one the men
lose sleep about.

Matinee for Ladies Only.
The Grand Theatre management announces
that "The Marriage Queslion,"
which comes to the Grand Theatre
Friday, Is giving a matinee here
for ladies exclusively and it is further
announced positively that no gentleman
will be admitted. It is presumed
that there is something special planned
In connection with the matinee which
makes it advisable to bar gentlemen,

are best talked of in the absence of the
men. The night show is for ladies and
