"The Gréat Gamble"
"The Clock of Onora"
Unecrognized by Aline, Ralph is
grasped by the detectives who start
to handeuff him. He tears himself
free, throws the' oflicers to one side
and laps'from th window. Th police
pursue him, but he climbs to the roof
of n ix-story building by scaling the
wall, and eludes his pursuers for a
few moments. N ;
Neil and Shorty are chased by the
detective. . Shorty enters Cooley's
room, and finds him busy with an in
fernal machine, in which dynamite is
to be set off by a clock-work. Think
ing the detective is coming in, Cooley
sets the infernal machine to go off in
five minutes and heand Shorty escape
down a dumbwaiter, but it is Neil,
and not the detective, who enters the
room. She runs to the door, which
has becn left open, and starts to pulì
up the dumbwaiter. The clock is ap
proaching the minute of the explos
ion. Just as the machine is about to
xplode, Neil succeeds in getting into
the dumbwaiter. There is a big ex
plosion and the room is torn to
pieces. . ,
Neil falls with the dumbwaiter but
is uninjured. She escapes. Mean
while, the other detective and police
men are following Ralph. They chase
him up the Are escape, and Ralph
makes a thrilling jump f rorn the roof
of one house to the next, a distancej
of 14 feet. 'Then Ralph lets himself j
down to the irround bv means of a
rope hanging from a painter's scaf
fold. That night, Ralph adopts a bold
pian to secure a confession from Al
ine, whom he stili believes he took
home the night of Harding's murder.
He climbs up the side of the house,
and enters Aline's boudoir. Ralph de
manda a confession from Aline, but
she doesnot understand him. The
maid hears a man's voice and informs
Morton,, who enters with a revolver.
Ralph tells his story. Aline, impres
sed by Ralph, pleads with her father
that Ralph reàlly seems to believe
taht she is the woman. Morton
agrees to let Ralph go, on condition
taht he devote himself to findingthis
other woman, who so closely resemb
lcs his daughter. The police, who
have been called, enter the house, just
as Morton tells Ralph to get out of
the window. Then Moi-ton shoots a
pistol in the air, and tells the police
man "the burglar got away." Ralph
eludes the police by taking refuge in
a sewer. -
The next day a trap against Aline
is sprung. The tire on her limousine
is cut and her chauffeur hires a pas
sing cab, which is driven by Cooley.
Aline enters the car, Shorty jumps in
on her and after a struggie, sne is
pnrrind to thp basement of an aband-
oned grain elevator at the river side.
Htere Blake is waiting, and he ex
plains to Aline taht if she will write
to her father as he dictates, she will
be freed. Aline refuses to write the
letter. Blake and his crooks are about
to torture her, when Ralph, who has
found his way from the sewer to an
opening into the building, enters. A
big fight follows. Aline escapes.
Ralph runs up a ladder to the top
floor of the elevator, followed by
simi-tv nnH Onnlev. Aline running,
meets a policeman, takes him back
to the elevator to save Ralph. Mean
whilc, Ralph has gone out on the win
dow ledge at the top of the elevator.
Cooley shoots at him, and to save his
life, Ralph makes a thrilling dive from
the top of the elevator into the river

is reaping the harvest notwithstand
ing the fact that he is paying more
lor his commodity than even dream
ed of a year ago. As an instance of
the remarkable rise in his rentals,
the first Fairbanks release via the
United Artists (Big Four) is being
distributed on a basis of $1,000,000
gross for the United States. One can
only realizethe tremendous advance
when it is considered that the best
any Fairbanks .picture has ever dono
was sorhething like $300,000 covering
a period of two years rentals.
The Big Four is using the coming
Mary Pickford pictures as bait, ex
hibitors who sign for the Fairbank3
photoplay being given the privilege
of taking "Pollyanna," the first Pick
ford Four release, at a figure yet to
be fixed. The new Fairbanks pie
ture, "His Majesty, the American,"
likewise, is the most costly one ever
manufactured,by that dynamic star
as it is said to have caused an out
lay of more than $300,000. The sets
used alone, cost something like $50,
000. So other producers watching
these mounting prices in pop-eycd
amazement are rushing madly about
offering stars hitherto unheard of
sums to do!i makeup in their behalf.

tcrest and anticipation as Douglas
Fairbanks' new picture, "His Majos
ty, The American".
Something more than mere inter
est in a motion picture lies back of
this anticipation, for "His Majesty,
the American" is Douglas Fairbanks'
first independent production and
marks the first release of United- Ar
tists Corporation, the sò-called "Big
In Januarv of 191D the entiro
! amusement world was startled by
i the foi-mation of the United Artists
' Associatio ì. This Assoeiation was
formed by Mary Pickford, Char
, lie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and
i D. W. Griffìth. These artists, con-
ceded throughout the world to be
1 the screcn's foremost producers, af
: ter having released their pictures for
i a number of years through vanous
distributing companies decided that
to assure their best work and in order
to have full independence for the
highest expi'ession of their art, they
would upon the completion of their
then-existing contraete, release their
own pictures, direct to the theatres
of the country.
This move for independence by the
foremost artists of the screcn is
the most important and beneficiai step
that has been taken in the motion
picture business since it assumed its
leadership in" the amusement field.
It means for the motion picture pa
trons that Mary Pickford, Charlie
Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.
W. Griffìth will hereafter be enabled
to produce pictures in their own way.
They will make fewer pictures
than they have made before, and
this in itself will be an adva'itage.
Hcretofore they have been obliged to
tuin out a certain number of produc
tions within a given period and con
scquently have not always had the
time to perfect their work. 1
Thus, under the leadership of the
screen's foremost artists is the per
fection of motion picture entertain
ment in sight.
The first, picture made under these
ideal conditions is "His Majesty, the

banks' first release through United
Artists Corporation the "Big Four"
and inasmuch as it was to be his
bow as a genuine independent pro
ducer and distributor, "Doug" took
"the lid ofT the cash-box."
From every standpoint of produc
tion settings, atmosphere, players
and mcchanical equipment "His
Majesty, the American" is reported
to outshine anything that Mr. Fair
banks has hcretofore attempted.
The story which was prepared b7
Joseph Hcnaberry, Mr. Fairbanks' di-
with the assistance of blton
Priscilla Dean is bsck at Univer
sal City after an exciting experience
as a near free lance. Priscilla made
a contract with Universal a couplc
of years ago which carried an option
for an additional year at a stated
salary. The greed upon stipend
looked pretty good then but now
adays it wouldn't have paid the sal
ary of a good "bit" player. A legai
flaw was found in the "poipers" and
Priscilla announced that Universal
would see her over the fence from
the roof of her limousine. After
considerable dickering Universal ad
mitted that the salary mentioned in
the option was more or less pifFiing
and Priscilla carne back to draw a
weekly pay check that wlil augment
her bank balance quite a bit. During
the parleying, however, Miss Dean
reccived offers from practically every
important producing company in
the field at figures r.anging up into
the thousands. Not so bad for a eirl
