One 6l the most interesting casts secured this season will surround , Clara Kimball Young in her next big production, "Eyes of Youtb," showing at the Spencer tonight for four days. The cast has been selected from 1 ine very nicnesi ranis 01 doiu I stage and screen, and there is hard I ly bit in the production that is I not being played by an artist of I start qualities. Miss Young Is play- 1 ing the role of Gina Ashling, which 1 was created in the New York pro- duction, one of the most sensation lal successes of the season, by Mar Uorle Rambeau. One of the really W parts of the play is that of Paolo Salvo, the Italian impresario, Who inveigles Gina into aecompany ' Ing him to Europe for an operatic - (career. At The RiaJto. I Stealing cattle from the exten sive ranch of Cheyenne Harry Hen derson became a nightly occur rence. In vain Cheyenne appealed i I Aft the sheriff of his county to stop ; Uewflhe depredations. In vain Chey enne s men pieaaea witn mm to lei them take the law into their own hands. .Their pleadings were wi'.h put avail, for the sheriff of Yucca tounty was crooked, and Cheyenne jllarry was a law-abiding citizen en far as the law of the lana of those days went. But something did happen that raused Cheyenne to throw his hat In the air with a yell of rage and tell the world that he was "Bur's bust in' loose from peace." The itory will be told in "The Ace of I he Saddle," Harry Carey's latest t'nlvereal made western, which is lo be shown at the Rialto theatre L'hrlstmas. . At the Fifth Arena. All those who have seen on the J legitimate stage or in opera, Prov per Merimee's immortal story of "Carmen," will find in this pictur ization of the story for Geraldine Farrar. one of the 'most thrilling photoplays seen here in many years. "Carmen" will be shown at the Fifth Avenue theatre tonight, and doubtless will be acclaimed as one of the most popular of the Farrar series of photoplays. At The Palaee. A bill of surpassing excellence has been arranged by Manager Walter Dunn of the Palace for the patrons of his theatre, starting to morrow. The program was secured with the object in rlew of provid ing only the highest class of vaude ville as a special Christmas enter tainment for theatregoers. Laura Bennett Co. headlines the all-star attraction with "You Never Can Tell." This la a musi cal act of unusual merit and has everywhere won the commendation of critics of the stage. It ts full of wholesome comedy and Is certain to please even the most confirmed grouch. Gardner and Revere will appear in bits of vaudeville. This pair of entertainers are recognized among the beat In all stageland. Manager Dunn feel especially well pleased at being able to secure their act for his theatre' at this time. : ' Belle Barchua Co. present a comedy skit entitled, "As Inside Job." The act has all the exciting moments of an Intense drama with natural comedy cleverly brought out in Its lines. Manning and Hall bill themselves as "That Klever Komedy Kouple." Advance notices Indicate that -the act is everything that the title im plies, and even more. Robert and Demont put the fin ishing touches to the bill. They have an act de luxe, featured by their singing and dancing. At the Black Hawk. A remarkably ' clever comedy drama, filled with surprises and with sustained mystery element is "Too Many Crooks," the Gladys Leslie picture, which will be s;en in the Black Hawk theatre tonight Miss Leslie Is cast as Queen of the Crooks, who are honored house nartv cuests In a neighborhood of millionaires, and the action cen ters about what she does, not alone to material goods she happens across, but to the affections of the told ctthMoa who take her for a college girt rather than the "slick est confidence woman this side of the Atlantic" " The remarkable situation about because a society girl who la writing a crook play wishes to study- crooks at close range. She appeals to a young lawyer friend, who obligingly hunts up a bunch of crooks and asks them to her house, party. They believe she is "one of them" and they act ac cordingly, causing little less than civil war in the aristocratic sub urb and incidentally bringing the girl and her parents near everlast ing disgrace. - ' - riiirmitnmnnuirinnrniirnniiirg Matinee and Sight I CEXISTFIAS S- Tea Popular Irisk Actor-Stif-tr 2 I FicLVa A'Hara I A (EJfrfetmaa I uon v v iiuiu S la kla aew raaedy tHana at 3 Lave, Laatkatr aae Life "Down Limerick I Way" Hear Wr A'Hara's Ww Knar SBMlal Airanlti Orakeitra Xatlliw Me to SI.M; Bight, e to SMS, plas tax Seats an Sale Tues.
