Theatrical.
Tod Browning's original
drama of t ho under world, "Out
side the Haw,"' comes to the
Ainuzu The itre Thursday with
Priseitla Dean in the stellar
role. Lon Chancy, Wheeler
Oakmiin, F. A. Warren, Ralph
Lewis, Melbourne MacDowell,
Wilton Taylor und a new child
actor, Stanley Geetluds nro in
the cast.
Brnwning produced his story
as a Universal Jewel feature a'
a cost running into the hun?
dreds id thousands of dollars,
and the completed picture is
saitl to give ample evidence of
the expenditure, by the beauty
ami lavishnesH of its produc?
tion, The locale is San Fran
Cisco, and several blocks of the
Bay Oil) 's underworld were
reproduced?nl Universal City at
a cost of $90,000 An apart?
ment house on Knob Hill, the
modern palace of a banker, und
the splendid oriental intricacies
of the rear and second lloor of
a bazaar are some of the more
extensive settings.
The story of "Outside tho
Law," concerns the struggles
of tv little group of crooks to
free themselves from the shack,
lea of crime and live the life
they desire. In this they are
tlnyarted and double crossed by
an evil and revengeful figure of
the half world, who resents
respectability. In the buck
ground, and yet the dominant
personality of this drama is an
old heathen philosopher, whoso
ideas of right and wrong are
based on no political statutes,
anil who metes out an uneanc
tinned justice "nulsido the Inw."
Priscilte Deun is said to be at
her dramatic best in this, her
first picture since "The Virgin
of Stamboul;" while Don Chan,
ey has a dual role which out?
shines anything in his career of
distinctive and difficult screen
