Some idea of the attention paid to
details by Cecil B. De Mille in his pro
duction of the Para-mount-Artcraft
picture, "Male and Female," which
will be the attraction at the Hub the
atre on Thursday and Friday may be
trained from a photographic feat
which he accomplished during the
filming. Those who are familiar with
Sir James M Barrie's famous play,
'The Admirable Crichton,' from which
tho new De Mille production was
adapted, will recall that several of the
most exciting scenes take place in a
cave on a tropical island. In- order
to secure natural sunlight' for "shoot
ing" these episodes, Mr. De Mille de
vised an intricate system of mam
moth mirrors, by which the rays of
T j the sun were reflected far into the
Ulark recesses of the cave. Despite
( the lavish scale upon which the pic
! i tuie was screened, the inimitable Bar-
i rie humor and his vhimsicaF touches
j are apparent throughout. Thomas
