r lasries . irom riimiaria J iiS PHOTO PLAYS FOR OMAHA DEVOTEES (TC William S. Hart a Sure Enough Western Winner A few years ago. not very many, movie fans craved what is commonly called "western stuff." Naturally the manufacturers, desiring to give the public what it wanted, flooded the market with this nature of film with the result that when the majority of film fans saw a poster in front of a theater that looked like it was west ern, they tarried not. It was at this time that William S. Hart, who had made auite a name for himself on the stage in this type of character, cast his tortunes under the Ince banner. The picture that brought this type of play in favor again was without a doubt "The Bargain," which is still talked of in movie circles. At the time the Triangle corporation was formed. Hart went with Thomas H. Ince and today is recognized as the leader of the western type. of picture. Not only is his acting of the best, but the lo cations chosen, and the wonderful subtitles make the productions in which he appears looked for anxiously by admiring film fans. His latest picture will be shown at the Strand theater Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and is called "The Gun Fighter." In this picture he is a bandit of the worst type, "a killer,' but is persuaded to become sheriff in order that he may kill another "bad man, it being the hope ot the authorities that they may both be killed and thus render the state two services in one. It is stated that this picture will live and breath for many moons to come as one ot his master' pieces. "Eagle's Wings" Shows How Uncle Sam Is Getting Ready While the naval consulting board, through its organization for industrial prepareancss, is gaincruig uaia irum the mills and factories of the United States, the producers of Bluebird photoplays have created a picture drama designed to inform the general public upon the vital topic of co operation by the captains of industry in Uncle Sam's preparedness for any emergency. "The Eagle's Wings" is the title of Bluebird's extremely illum inating feature and it will be shown at the Hipp theater Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday, with Herbert Raw linson and Grace Carlyle appearing in the principle roles. There is a grip ping story to entertain the beholder, sustaining interest to the very end, and in working out the plot authentic scenes taken in munition factories will be introduced; and there will be in formative scenes picturing the opera tion in government plants, and in va rious sections of the army and navy. "The Eagle's Wings" is a nonpolitical, purely patriotic, ail-American photo play of loyal inspiration. Clara Kimball Young to Play the Weepy Heroine . Clara Kimball Young in the forth coming release, "Camille," which will be shown at the Empress theater on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. In this picture Miss Young puts forth great efforts. Her "Trilby" was judged to be a very beautiful piece of work. It has delighted millions by its pathos, beauty and sentiment. In "Camille" you have the same fine , dramatic art; but Camille is a very ' celebrated member of the French un derworld; with a string of wealthy lovers, and all the usual ways of a woman of her class. Still she is wom an enough to really fall in love once and for all. But at the end of it all she dies a tragic death, leaving only the remembrance of her brilliant, if unpleasant reputation and her love for Armand. The renowned French director, Al bert Capellani, makes the picture, and his brother, Paul Capellani, plays the part of Armand. Kirk to Manage Nebraska v For the Metro Company J. E. Kirk thought that when he resigned from the Fathe company he would go in some other business, but found that the lure of the game was too strong when he received a flatter ing offer from the Metro people, so now he is with us again under their banner, with the entire state of Ne braska under his jurisdiction.
