THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: FEBRUARY 25, 1917. .4- - :ir vj.

In each of these the sim plicity of the stage setting was a notable feature; yet the skill of the actor more than made up for 'the' ab sence of elaborate scenery and equip ment, and who that saw either will ever complain that anything was lack ing? Another fine example of the perfect combination is Mrs. Fiske't production of "Rosmersholm." Recall these and contrast them with Mr. Be lasco's "Girl of the Golden West," in the first act of which the Girl alone must handle 135 different "props," not to mention what is required of the other characters, and this is ex tended throughout four acts, to the accompaniment of wind machines, snow storms, panoramic curtains and a wonderful sunrise I Those mischievous little fellows, the "Katienjammer Kids," Hans and Frita, whose antics in the comic sec tion of the SunMay newspapers have made millions laugh, have been made the central figures in a hilarious car toon musical comedy, in which they re surrounded by all the other char acters of the cartoons and a big chorus of beautiful girls. When it is places! on view at the Boyd today lor five nights and three matinees, commencing matinee today, the pub lic is going to see a great fun show. The hilarious situations in which Hani and Fritx involve Ma Katzen . jammer, Der Professor, Der Captain and the other characters, cause no ,end of merriment. Particular .care 'has been taken With the staging1 and 'costuming of the "Katienjammer Kida." The "fashion plate chorus" ,is gowned in various fetching and 'stunning costumes, all of which match i harmoniously with the stage pictures .and electrical effects. Its fun is clean and wholesome and there are .many good things in the perfor I mince. Matinees will be given to day, Wednesday, and a special on 'Thursday at 3 p. m. for the benefit of the school children. At the popular Gayety theater this (week Joe Hurtig is presenting "The Auto Girls." In the all-new show this season's offering is in two dis tinct acts, "Sliding Billy" Watson ap pearing in the first ' act with three scenes as Ludwig, the Clock Maker, while in the second act, with three scenes, Ed Lee Wroth appears in a review of the sucessful plays to which he contributed the character of Jan itor Higgins. There are nearly half a hundred people in the cast outside of Watson and Wroth, including Owen Martin, Mable Morgan, Es telle Cobert, Hazel Woodbury, Fred de Silva, Tiney Hilson, Gus Roeber, Herman Gibson and a prize ideal as semblage of joy riding Auto Girls. This will be the only musical show in town Auto Show week. Ladies' matinee daily all week. Today's matinee starts At o clock. Louis Mann comes to the Orpheum week of March 4 in "Some Warriors," a playlet, satirizing the present war. It fwas written originally for the Friar's :Frolic by Clara Lipman and Samuel Shipman, and created such a favorable impression at that performance that it 'was immediately drafted for vaude ville. The scene is a German military istation. Richard Strauss, the German (composer, played by Louis Mann, is (serving aa a valet to the German Igeneral in charge. During a half (hour's declared truce. Edmond Ros- jtand, the French poet, serving as a messenger ooy in tne trench ranks, comes to the German encampment Iwith a letter from his commander. The aituations which arise between the two geniuses are said to be ex traordinarily funny. - - "The Birth of a Nation" will be presented at the Brandeia theater for lone week besinnine: this afternoon. There are twelve reela of vivid, re alistic spectacles which tell the story of a double romance and carry one through scenes of the civil war and some episodes of the reconstruction period. Colonel Stoneman of the north is in love with the sister of Colonel Cameron of the south. And Colonel Cameron is infatuated with the sister of Colonel Stoneman. These romances are depicted before the war and the views show how the drawing of lines and the commence ment of the war worked estrange ment, distress and hardship on the young lovers and members of their families. Brave young men embrace their mothers, sisters and sweethearts and depart for army service. ' The pictures also show patriotic women at home sewing and knitting for the soldiers. One sees vast armies mus tered to march away to war. Aa the war progresses great battles are fought and the thrilling action from rifle fire to cavalry clashes and ar tillery duels is depicted in pictorial form as true to life as it is possible for human agency to simulate. Scenes are unfolded in which the largest theatrical army ever assem bled is active in the performance of the deeds of warfare.. In the pictures General Robert E. Lee strides forth to clasp the hand of General U. S. Grant, liis conqueror, at Appomatox. Another historical event of lasting impressiveness is the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, pre sented as accurately as the detaila are remembered by eye-witnesses and an exact reproduction of the play houst in which the martyred president lost his life. Peace is exemplified in an aggres sive pageant and the Dictorial atorv continues with the fortunes of the re united lovers and the troubles ex perienced in the south. Mob vio lence and outlawry are shown, fol lowed by spectacular views of the Ku Klux Klanamen who were nisrht riders and wore white shrouds.

Headline honors this week at the Orpheum are divided between "the prince of minstrels, Eddie Leonard, and the two players of established reputation, Homer B. Mason and Marguerite Keeler. The sketch, "The Minstrel's Return." in which Mr. Leonard will be assisted by Anthony Howard and Fred Mayo, is reputed to be extremely laughable. Mr. Ma son and Miss Keeler have given their efforts for several seasons to play lets by forter Emerson Browne, author of their new sketch, "Married, acknowledged the most popular thing they! have offered. Stan Stanley, assisted by his relatives, is to be one of the special features of the show. His antics on the bounding table are said to be funny.

Her second com edy will be "Dimples, the Diplomat," a delightful photo playlet in two parts. The scenarios for this series were written especially for Miss Walker by A. Van Buren Powell. Only Beautiful Women In New Under Films Beautiful women he has none but the most beautiful of all women in his cast. That was Max Linder's stipulation, when the celebrated French comedian contracted to come to Essanay. And Linder's reputation as a connoisseur of beauty is noted in Europe. Wherever is Max Linder," the say ing goes in Paris, "there also is beauty." The question was, therefore, who are the most beautiful actresses on the American screen. It was a ques tion that Essanay officials searched the studios of the country to answer. They were, determined that the same should be true here as in Paris, only it should be American beauty instead of the French type. The bevy of blonde beauty in Max's first comedy, "Max Comes Across," is the result. Incidentally Max braved the wrath of French women recently when he declared that "America is just one pretty girl after another."
