Of course, everyone is talking about "Theodora," the big film to appear g at the Columbia theatre. All who have seen it marvel at one or two i or three features of the massive pro- c duction. Some are moved to specu- t lation and comment concerning the t big scene in the circus, where the f li!ions are turned on the crowds-ev- i 1 ery one has a theory of how this won- i derful scene was manipulated for .he d lcamera-some have marveled at the I grouping of such a mass of people; t, - the principal comment is upon the r architecture, the scenery--where it a was made, by whom and how? ci That's a long story. When the si Italian film company decided to make b .a picture that would go around the c world and canse the whole world to n open its eyes to a great ascomplish- be ment, negotiations were put on foot ai with the Vatican by powerful inter ests. It is believed that the Vatican S library holds certain documents con cerning Theodora, empress of the east and wife of Justinian which have not been given to the world in print- ti, ed books. There was a great desire ar to consult these documents. It is not or known whether the coveted permis- wi sion was given. Suffice that Sardou's pl story has been "touched up" in cer- se tain lifelike details which may be de- wi pended upon as trustworthy. ca There was something else that the :AT producers wanted from the Vatican. This was its official architect. He Aid was supposed to know more about the ancient Byzantium than anybody. Pope Benedict was petitioned for this man's services, for he required papal I bout permission. pear Even this is not declared by the who company; but puttin two and two two together and realizing the generosity pro- of the pope, when the art of Italy is t ecu- to be fostered, also the fortunes of the the populace of Rome, and the further the fact that two years ago Signor Bras- d -ev- ini was released to the film company, 1 ron- it is plain that his holiness gave the F ,he desired permission. b the Brasini went out to Lake Albano, e pie; twenty miles from Rome, made his U the residence there and spent nearly the it whole two years in constructing an cient Byzantium as it stood in the the sixth century. Many of the collosal ake buildings were constructed of solid the cement and still remain as a monu to ment to Armando Brasini. They have sh- become a popular resort for tourists oot and appear to be "permanent." er- 0 an STARS SUPPORT STAR n- IN "FASCINATION" the tWe When Mae Murray in "Fascina nt- tion," presented by Robert Z. Leon ire ard, comes to the Columbia Theatre lot on Wednesday, the popular Metro star is' will be supported by a company of u's players, several of whom have them ?r- selves starred on Broadway. It is le- without doubt one of the strongest casts that has ever been assembled in motion pictures. 4 Among this distinguished company is Helen Ware, Vincent Coleman, Courtenay Foote, Creighton Hale, Charles Lane and Robert Frazer. Miss Murray herself plays a girl who revolts against the rigidity of her home life, runs off to a bull story the aes It cost $3,000,000 and required two years time in making. 25,000 people are in the cast headed by Rita Jolivet. Settings of stone and marble occupied a set of 100,000 square meters and were built under the direction of Armando Brasini, architect of the Vatican. It dazzles the eye as a spectacle, words are too weak for its de scription. And against such an amazing background is set the story of an empress who sacrificed im perial power, the wealth of the I world--who even loosed a horde of hungry lions on thou sands of her subjects to save the man she loved. If you miss Theodora you may as well stop going to motion pictures.
