Color Film “Great,” Managers Say.
“The great Douglas Fairbanks,”
screen master, in his latest photoplay,
“The Black Pirate,” will be the Clem
mer attraction for the week begin
ning September 25. “The Black Pi
rate” is filmed in color and it is un
doubtedly the biggest attraction we
have been able to present to the pub
lic this year,” Herbert J. Royster, ex
ploitation man for the Clemmer,
With a story flavored by the tang
of the sea and highly spiced with Fair
banksian stunts and the wildest sort
of adventure, along with a pleasing
romance, it would seem that much is
in store for those who go down to the
screen in cushioned chairs to watch
the unfoldment of flickering fantasies.
The cast for the picture is of very
compact dimensions. There are only
two women in the piece—Billie Dove
and Tempe Pigott, the latter in the
role of maid to the heroine.

Comedy at Auditorium
Musical comedy will again take the
stage at the Auditorium next Sun
day when the Maylon Players pre
sent their first show of that charac
ter of the season, “Forty-Five Minutes
From Broadway,” the production
which George M. Cohan wrote in his
lightest vein and which has been
viewed by millions of theater-goers.
A special chorus chosen by Will
Maylon from about 120 applicants will
be featured next week, and a full pro
duction of the popular Cohan creation
has been promised. Margaret Nixon,
local singer of considerable reputa
tion, will have her first big opportu
nity in a tuneful way with the May
lon Players next week, carrying the
leading feminine role of Mary. Oppo
site her Will Maylon will appear as
“Kid” Burns. Jean Josten, Jerry Wil
son, Caroline Edwards and Ruth Hill
also have important roles, and the
entire company will be busy, augment
ed with extras and the chorus.
Chosen by the Maylon patrons as
first choice among musical shows and
second choice of all plays, “Forty-Five
Minutes From Broadway” was a pop
ular choice for the resident company.
With the new company and a new
chorus, selected because of their abili-
ty in singing, the new bill promises
to be a high spot of the current sea
“The Bat,” which closes Saturday,
has been a strong drawing card for
the Maylon organization, the casting
of characters with such a careful hand
being the subject of wide comment.
Those who have thrilled with the
romance of “Beverly of Graustark”
will have the pleasure of viewing the
photoplay with Marion Davies and An
tonio Moreno in the title roles at the
Liberty theater beginning Saturday,
September 25. In her greatest screen
romance Marion Davies masquerades
as a crown prince. She makes up to
strikingly resemble the Prince of
Wales and says that it was through
the wearing of thin silk shirts such
as European officers wear even in the
dead of winter she learned that wom
en can wear the sparse new garments
without suffering from cold.
Several gorgeous new gowns
brought especially from Paris for the
production make a splendid contrast
for the star when she doffs male at
tire. The story is a romantic tale of
European court intrigue laid in mod
ern times.
