The woman who smiles at a man is not always a vampire. There are times when she
may be trying to "get the goods" on a man, as did Marie Bernais in "The Siren's Song."
Life is never so dark that a woman should want to put an end to it. Marie Bernai3
was jilted by her lover, and thought her only salvation lay in the deep waters of the sea.
If someone had not rescued her she would have missed a brilliant career and a wonder
ful romance. ; ; 1

"Thrills" is life, is humanity. And a regular head-on collision of a thrill, a regular
Deadwood stage hold-up of a stinger of nerve-centers, is Bill Duncan, the Sandow of the
Screen, in his latest Vitagraph serial, "The Man of Might." Its fifteen episodes are
equivalent, in the pounding and pandemonium that spells punch, to so many cylinders in
a second-shivering racing car. There is action hereit's an epic of action, this fifteen
chaptered cinema cyclone that'll go crashing through the screens with a dizzying suc
cession of real, unfaked sensations speed,, stunts, suspense, THRILLS to bankrupt the
bulkiest dictionary.

Vitagraph's latest adventure serial,

ter today. William Duncan, direc
tor and star, took his entire company v,
miles out ,in the California-Arizona
destrt, where a score of big scenes were
filmed, including several battles With
outlaws'-' and automobile pursuits,
which are thrilling bits of realism. The
story centers , about the search for

vided into six pieces, scattered and
forgotten all over the country. Duncan
is supported by an all-star cast, includ

The Brittany Girl
Theda Bara in the William Fox super-production.
"The Siren's Song." will
feature the program at the Pastime
Theatre today.
The Siren's Song" is a powerful
dramatic picture that tells in a new
way the story of the eternal struggle
of woman's love and sacrifice. Miss
Bara portrays a little girl of Brittany,
who is brought up in an environment
of religious severity. : It shatters her
love romance with a divinity student,
and makes her gift of song a source
of sorrow to her. Eventually, by dint
of a heart-breaking struggle, she, be
comes a noted prima donna. Regard
less of convention, she lives wtih the
man she loves until her minister-lover
returns. He forces her to renounce
the joys of loving. After she has made
this supreme sacrifice she learns thai
the minister, is . a hypocrite and- that
her spiritual regeneration made , her
blind to her true love the man "she
sent away.
' "The Siren's Song" is a remarkable
drama, which offers Miss Bara excep

Want's Kaiser to
Act Villain riPlay
William Duncan, Vitagraph's fam
ous seria star and director, say?
that if the allied governments will
turn the ex-Kaiser over to him, he
will ask Albert E. Smith and Cyrus
Townsend Brady, Vitagraph's serial
authors, to- write a special episode
in "The Man of Might," exclusive
ly featuring Wilhelm. He promises
that all episodes of all past serials
will pale into insignificance beside
this one and thereafter be only a
blurred memory.
The sixth episode of "The Man
of Might," Vitagraph's latedt adven
ture serial, will be seen in the Pas
time theatre today.
Loosing the Tiger
While the Astra Film . Corpora
tion was engaged in filming Ruth
Roland's new serial, "The Tiger's
Trail, which will be shown, at the
Liberty theatre today all of the
studio folk were a bit worried about
the fifth episode and as the time
drew nearer for the taking of the
particular scenes in that chapter the
harassed look on the faces of direc
tor, actors and mechanics r deep
ened. ; - .' . - .
For in the fifth episode the live
Bengal . tiger which had figured
prominently in the action all along
as the Idol of the Hindu, Tlger
Worshipers, had to be turned loose.
There was no helping It, the Tiger
must be allowed to leave his cage
and enjoy a taste" of freedom on a
location. Gilson Willets, the scena
rio writer, was appealed to by Dl
rector Hurst. .
"Please, Mr. "Willets change that
fifth episode." pleaded the direc
tor. "We have had so many accU
dents tr making this serial that I
fear there Is a jinx on up and I
am afraid something will happen If
we turn that beast loose. Even Miss
r.oland who generally takes every.
thing as a matter of course - is
looking forward to the fifth epi
sode with dread." But "Willets wa
adamant. In order to get the ac
tion right that Tiger must be al
lowed to gambol on the green and
be filmed for once outside of his
So when the dreaded day came
-4Jiey let his Tigerlets out and the
cameramen bravely started turning
their cranks, ever and anon glanc
ing aroundto see that the trainers
with their iron prods were standing
near. The director decided that It
would be an ad US scene, and stayed
in the studio leaving the tiger to
make up his own "business" for
the scene.
But the,. Tiger simply walked
around a couple of times, yawned
and craw" J into his cage and lay
down. Born in captivity, freedom
meant nothing in his young life.
So the dreaded scenes were taken
without accident and one of tha
most thrilling "shots" of the en
tire serial was secured.
Horseless Carriage
May Not Be Auto
Riding in a carriage without
horses! Sounds Impossible, but it
has been done and Theda Bara,
the famous "William Fox star, had
the privilege of trying out this
novel mode of locomotion.
Instead of being drawn by pranc
ing horses. Miss Bara'a carriage
ras pulled through the city streets
jy throngs of cheering men. . This
!s how Paris pays homage to the
famous prima donna whom Miss
Bara Portrays in "The Siren's
Song," her latest "William Fox sup-jr-productlon.

There was a near riot at the
William Fox studios In Hollywood,
,'allfornia, among a dozen, "extra"
aien who clamored for the privilege
f pulling Miss Bara's carriage
When Director Jy Gordon Edwards
outlined the scene to Jiis assistants,
ind the thirty, "extra" men heard
vhat was wanted, they began to
auarrel among themselves as to
who , would be the lucky ones to
iraw Miss Bara's carriage. So hot
ecame the discussion that Direc
tor Edwards himself had to step In
and select the men.
Miss Bara no soner had set foot
n her carriage than the men dashed
iway at lightning speed. The fa
nous screen star had to hold tight
keep from falling out of the ve
licle. "When the scene was coii
iluded the men gave her a rousing
iheer, and Miss Bara with her own
lands bestowed a flower on each of
them for his chivalry.
"The Siren's Song" will be played
at the Pastime Theatre today.

When Peric Scoarn
Sold His Soul
On dark and stormy nights the
Breton mothers of St. Michel . tell
their frightened children this story:
, "Never be reckless, my little ones.
Never -tempt the Evil One, for" he
b bound to play a trick on you such
is he played on Peric Scoarn. whd
made a bargain with Satan. In ex
change fo- -his soul he was allow

Satan told PerW to go at low tide
to a certain spot, where he' would
see a door.
"'Knock at the doors Peric, and
It will open.' Satan said. 'It will
spen into a chamber full of gems
md treasures. I only warn you i
ye sure to start for home before
he stroke of midnight, Peric. Be
sure.' ' ,-
"Peric hurried to the treasure
chamber and obeyed all instruc
tions but the last. For when he

felt his limbs stiffening. He also
saw the beautiful maidens grow
stiff as himself. "When the last
sound of midnight died away Peric
found himself the central block of
a group of stones. The worst of his
punishment was that he retained his
consciousness -in spite of his ter
rlble transformation. He still heard
the ocean beating against the cliffs,
and he saw the fishermen going out
In their boats. Once a year on the.
night of Whit-Sunday, his spirit la
set free to wander to and fro on
the sands or to float on the crest
of the waves. ,
"So take heed, my little' ones."
Theda Bara .in "The Siren's
Didn't Fear Powder
But Run From Pie
"While it was a Question of gun
powder, Jane and Katherine Lee
were allowed to remain at their
posts behind their fortifications of
building blocks. But when an an
gry butler tried to make them a
target for pies and fruit, Mrs. Lee
objected. "
Jane and Katherine were taken
out of the danger zone by their
mother when the pie-throwing act
was screened for the new Fox pic
ture, "Tell It to the Marines."
Hardened men took the children's
places on the firing line and kept up
the hail of skyrockets and fire
cracker fire. .
It was agreed that the food was
to be aimed high up over their
' heads and carefully, though the but
ler tried to stick to the agreement,
he couldn't in the ardor of his per
formance. A Juicy pie struck one
of the men plump in the face. An
other victim came out of the war
with a high lump on his forehead
the footprint of an apple.
So, maybe, Mrs. Lee was right
after all.
