When the winner takes his prize home to Red Gap things begin to happen, and they keep on happening, rapidly. Indians, the independent mules of Arizona's famous Grand canyon and the wild and woolly cow-boys keep Ruggles on the jump, but he always comes up smiling. Lawrence D'Orsay, who played here with A1 Jolson in "Robinson Crusoe, Jr.," is also of a good cast in "Rug gles of Red Gap." The Warrior." "The Warrior" which will be presented at the Grand on Wednes day, July 10 offers Maciste in one of Ibis most notable roles wherein his giant strength is brought to the fore ground and surrounded by a story full of thrills, excitement and action. The producers wish to impress on the general public that "The Warrior" is not a war picture in any respect although taken on the Italian fron tier. The play is not drown out nor Is there any semblance of padding. Those who witnessed Maciste in "Cabiria" will more than appreciate Ills work in "The Warrior". His giant strength is used to overcome all sorts of odds, such as pushing big iboulders over the side of the moun tains, fighting against all kinds ot odds In the way of many opponents, (living from a high bridge on horse back, lifting cannons, dragging three men by a rope over a long distance through the snow and many other feats of strength that are not only wonder ful to the eye of the spectator, but also very humorous in the extreme.
