i uniformly of a high standard, really
enjoyable, appealing to a class of peo

that there is a need for good clean
musical comedy that It will pay somebody
to produce. Billy Malone seem?
to be the roan. It Is a probldm to

directed by R. William Nelll.
1-, The latter calU "Puppy Love" a story
f Of Youth and Summertime, and he has
hit the nail on the head. It Is delight,
ful?that's the only word to describe
It. And as for comedy?never anything
better was done by Mark Twain
pr his successors. Charles Murray Is
the comedien you know, for you've
seen him In Paramount-Mack Sennett
comedies and he Is simply a scream.
The entire cast Is good. The story la
good. The ctar Is wonderful, and you
will be simply carried away by the
sweetness and the charm of" the production.
? In "Puppy Love" which is described
as a genuine novelty in the comedydrama
line, Miss Lee plays another of
her dellcolua youthful roles while Mr.
Murray it seen as her father, an Irish
hodcarrler who rises to wealth and
fame and marries a lady of distinction

Byron used to plav a line of melodra

dy Meade," the Betzwood Film Company's
production written and directed
by Ira M. Lowry nnd released through
Goldwyn Distributing Corporation. The
hero was the same qulck-on-the-trlg
ger chap who was able to get the hotter
of the villain by his remarkable
ability to dlsgdtiso himself as any odd
character that suited his fancy. Aided
by a chance of clothee and a few lines
on his face he would boldly enter the

Present day lovers of western melodrama
are still strong for the same
sort of hero. As "Speedy Meade," a
Federal defective, lxiuls Bennison assumes
disguises and runs down his
man with ease and skill that makes
the chap out In front want to get up
and hollar for him. Melodrama is
never an acquired taste. It is part
of our primitive nature; and the quick 1
turns of the plot tn "Speedy Meade" '
will bring thp same hearly response as
of old. All the details of the production
