Dorothy Oish does itLat very thing in the picture and j thereby lets herself in for a lot of t eompllcaUont that make her al , most wish she had been less hasty. "Ftlettd Husband was an Innocent youth but he had a weakness for pretty feminine faces. Which is .wh he got himself into a mess with a manicure lady of good looks and girl with a black bag. After his bride, tearful and heart-broken, , .went, home to mother, he came to ' with a thud.

Harold Lloyd I'M a regular fea ture comedy in "Haunted Spooks" which starts tomorrow at the Ma jestic Lloyd does all the best of his stunts and introduces a lot of new ones. The comedy is rapid and there is one big laugh after anota er in It. Bucking horses, runaways, gun play, fights, escapes, chases, thrills Snore, are all to oe iouno in iom Ixt great picture, "Three Gold Coins," coming to the Majestic Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Thrills, tricks and throbs make a great picture, written by a great author for a great star. Intrigue and speed are some of the quali ties of this picture which is laid in the great nigged west. The scenic setting alone is worth com ing to see to say nothing of the thrills Mix will give you in his new atunts. There are oil land scenes and there are oil swindlers who find that to tee end a ready revol ver Is one of the best Instrument toward law and order if wielded by "a determined man who knows bow to use It Ml x is a bandit and a cowboy in different parts of the pic ture but la never in the wrong, a fact which makes his pictures al ways acceptable.. .

How lie does it and at the same time wins the girl for himself is all part of one of the most absorbing apd Interesting film . dramas ever yoreened. .There is one scene in particular where Mix swings from building to capture a notorious bandit that Is worth seeing if you Ilka thrills. Ah all-star supporting att is seen in the picture. There r daring riders, adroit .ropers, r-.rnck shots and' a gang of all round clever cow punchers who fcoaprlse the best western outfit on Aha screen today.

All in all, 'The Connerhead" is declared to be one of the big motion picture events of the year and well worth the at tention of everyone. It is a Para- mount Artcraft Wouldn't you think a dainty young actress like Enid Bennett would prefer light comedy rotes to the highly emotional portrayals for which she is called upon in some of her pictures? Miss Bennett is equally proficient in either type of photoplay and has done both, but she likes best the pans wnicn mace the greatest demands upon her emotions. : None of those 'wishy-washy,' Pollyanntsh roles for me," she said recently. "Give me a part that car ries a little weight with It and real ly makes me force myself to the ut termost to give an accurate por trayal. I believe that the public soon tires of doll-like actresses who have nothing but their pertness and a certain vivacity to recommend them. The characterizations that live always in the mind of the pub lic, like Edwin Booth as Hamlet and David Warfield as "The Music 1 Master," called for every bit of emotional talent that the actors possessed. Such achievements are really worth while. In "The Woman in the Suitcase." I her latest picture, coming to the. Spencer Square, Miss Bennett has the role of a resourceful young girl who saves ner iainer irom iu , clutches of a siren. It is a Thomas H. Ince production directed by Fred Nlblo and a Paramount-Art-craft picture. i ALLIED BUILDING TRADES EXCURSION TONIGHTS EVENT The Allied Building Trades council is giving an excursion on the steamer Capitol this evening.
