A Real Reel Romance
— ^
A Remarkable Story of Realism
In The Movies
r — —
In the whole realm of active photo
graphy it has remained for the com
mercial organization of Texarkana—
or rather—the two Texarkanas to fur
nish the last word in realism.
In a few days the movies will offer
a film presenting a romance, remark
able for the fact that it is a true
story of love even though its spectacu
lar settings and sensational Incidents
would be worthy of the creative effort
of imaginative minds. However, the
story is not idyllic in anj sense and,
being true, it does not require a eon
tortional irnao-ination to stimulate
one’s interest.
The characters are real—everyday
somebodies—all Texarkana people. It
happened this way: A ‘movie’ manu
facturer negotiated with the Board of
Trade to make a picture of the city.
Instead of planning for the conven
tional picture film to Illustrate the
city’s commercial and industrial im
portance. the organization’s secretary
conceived an idea for a picture which,
no doubt, is without precedent in the
history of art.
A building lot, house and complete
rurnlshings were offered as a gift to
the young couple of refinement, social
qualifications and talent necessary to
properly fill the leading roles in the
photoplay which ended In a sure
enough honest-to-goodn*ss wedding on
the state line between Arkansas and
Texas.
Immediately after the newspaper an
nouncements of the plan, the enthusi
astic interest among a large number
of young people gave evidence of the
popularity of the enterprise
Right young couples applied for the
opportunity to demonstrate their his
trionic ability before the camera and
incidentally, to receive as perquisites,
the promised material gifts along with
their respective affinities. In short,
the proposition was so attractitve that
the committee found it necessary to
close the competition in less than a
week.
Brandom Gray, an Arkansas boy,
and Irene Taylor, a Texas girl, re
ceived the recommendation of the com
mittee. Both of these young people
were qualified in every way to meet
the requirements of the committee and
its selection met with popular ap
proval. Their courtship of four years
landing contained many incidents of
b amatic interest and importance and
' scenario written around these true
- - _
happenings furnished a most interest
ing picture story.
Who gave the house, lot, and all the
other nice presents, amounting In all
to nearly $2,000? The citizens—all
classes of them. Every labor organiza
tion in the city volunteered to a man,
to perform all the labor required In the
construction of the house. The busi
ness men and manufacturers gave the
material and furnishings and mer
chants and others added valuable pres
ents for the bride and groom. The
bride’s dress, even her shoes and hos
iery, and the groom’s outfit came with
congratulations and good wishes from
the merchants? A diamond engage
ment ring, a wedding ring and other
handsome gifts were in the list. Paid
up fire insurance on the house and
furniture, paid up premiums on life
insurance, telephone rental, gas and
electricity, even groceries were gen
erously offered and accepted. Such
cooperation has never been surpassed,
if equalled.
The marriage is to take place on a
raised and decorated platform on State
Line avenue, Tuesday, December 14,
at 2 p. m. Two ministers, a Method
ist and a Baptist, will perform tbe two
ceremonies. Two licenses will be re
quired and used; one for Bowie county,
Texas, and one for Miller county, Ark
ansas. The bride and groom will stand
in different states while the ceremon
ies are performed. Texarkana’s two
mayors will be on the platform. Six
bridesmaids, a maid and matron of
honor and the parents of the contract
ing parties will form the bridal parly.
The Texarkana Band will play the
wedding march. A movie camera will
record the photos ar the rate of six
teen per second or nine hundred aud
sixty per minute.
This unusual event does not end
with the wedding. At eight o’clock tbe
fallowing morning, all the labor organ
izations will assemble at tbe site for
the home in Oakland Heights to build
the pretty four room cottage which
;'ne plans—also contributed—call for.
And the house will be built iD eight
hours. The furniture will he installed
before the last naU is driven home and
the scene will close with the happy
bride and groom crossing the threshold
of their own little home—a home
which will be a delightful memento of
their love-dream and stand as a monu
ment to the patriotism.^-'? enterprise
of a city’s people.
