PrlaclllA Dean, lumlnarr of ' numerous screen successes, reflects . . . .. ., ... . and In reflecting - blossoms forth as a feminine Mark Twain. It would be useless to attempt to ! ' elaborate her spontaneous humor, like painting the lily. She says: "First, t confess that the nearest I have ever been to Tur key is as a guest at a Thanksgiving banquet or, when at a street fair, I .had been beguiled by the strident 'tones of a bally - ho artist who extolled the marvellous terpslchorean skill of Katlma, the dancer, who had escaped from the Sultan's harem. i Before last summer Turkey was sim - "Ply a yellow spot on the map, or an affinity word to atrocity and mas - Nacre In the headlines of the news - 'papers.

"For six months during the mak - '' Ing of a film masterpiece, I breathed, ate, slept and lived Turkish. For six months I roamed about barefoot, my t body stained a claro hue. and I some - , times wonder how I ever got on with ! civilised people the first few weeks I after the picture was finished.

In that she differs from j nearly all other movie actresses, to i judge by their own accounts of their 1 tastes and accomplishments. ' The Impression one might get from. I reading many interviews la that fine I cooking Is so rare because the most gifted cooks are acting In the movie J studios. Even so, perhaps their number , wouldn't equal those who are sure ; a great talent for acting Is wasted in a kitchen. Miss Eddy is said to look like the "Mona Lisa." V William Faversham Advises Stage Struck Internationally Famous Actor, Now Seen on Screen, Talks to Young IOOD advice to young peon; with acting embUlon is given, by William Faversham, Internationally famed actor. i "Touth, ambition, energy, talent, patience and mental and knoral rectitude be sure soji pos - ' afls all these qualities to a marked degree before setting foot across the Rubicon of the cframej" fe&ys Mr. Faversham. "To reach the highest pinnacle of success, It Is not necessary to be an Adonis or a Venus. Indeed, many a promising career has been shattered through trading unduly upon one's "v stock of natural beauty. "What Is much mure essential . than personal - beauty as span eral ly understood 4s what I may call a grace ' of presence. And It Is within every - , body's power to acquire this. To enter a room erectly, proud, aggressively, head held held, shoulders' straight, to posstsss vac of carriage and grace of movement, these are readily acquired and also highly , essential. . . "In fact, no one, however, talented, has any business to seek a place upon the stage or screen until he or she can walk properly and gracefully, can radiate charm as they enter a room and rj'thm as thty leave, can sit and rise easily and prettily."

Time waa when playwrights and authors arose and complained bit terly against the butchery of the scenarist. II was a barbarian brainless, wanton, destructive, hope benighted and doomed from the foundation of the world. It is thus ,hat Jame, y0ung, director of many rotable picture plays and of long ex - Jerlence lnthe theatre before enter ing the turns, expressed himself to an Interviewer at nis stuaio. The truth is," continued Mr, Touw ..that the continuity of a story Is as important as the story Itself, and the best talent available Is enlisted In preparing the directors' scripts.

CLAIMS MOVIES ARE THEATRE'S 7 - LEAGUE BOOTS The movies have proved themselves quite the Seven League; Boots of the theatre, and now the "old days" are those - of not so long ago when should one fall to seo some great play during Its often too brief run on the stage, the golden opportunity was forever lost. Nowadays one may say with added assurance, "Oh, I must see So - and - So in his great play Such - and - Such," and In the event that light comedy, frivolous farce, and other offerings become so obtrusive that the serious drama goes "by the board," there is still time, for behold, yift movies I Oulda Bergcre Is wrltinir the script for "Peter Ibbetson" for George Fltsmaurlce. After that "Is completed ahe Is going to direct her own productions, the first of which will be "Sweethearts and Wives." foregone conclusion. especially among those who had anything to do witn tne advance work on the .production, and now that it has become film history, and a pleasant memory both among pleased Datrona and aat. Jsfled exhibitors, more than ordinary interest is attached to Mr. Favrr - sham's Selsnich picture, "The Sin that was his." In the opinion of many expert authorities, the release of the first Faversham picture waa something of a venture, not because of any doubt as to the ability or drawing power or me suit, nut pecauee tne style of story leaned greatly toward light comedy, and the stellar role was greatly at variance with the type of portrayals that this noted actor had been associated) with in the fast. The outcome, howeverv proved that while ' the venture may hava huun daring, It was also riftht, as It moved from public mind the thought that William Faversham was only to be shown In the classics, costume plays or ultra correct vehicles. fit has alwsys been the wish of Mr. Faversham that ha be sMven a variety of roles. In a statement recently mads in connection with his part In his second Selsnlck production, the atar said, "It is as different from 'The Man Whj Lost Himself as night is different from day. My first picture was a light comedy. The Faversham series promises to be one of the greatest group of high - class photoplays ever released by one organisation, and the exhibitor who plays and advertise them 1n the dignified manner consistent with their artiatio and commercial value will bulM an - addition to the patron - ags he already has and create a new clientele - that will be decidedly worm wnue. v FAVORITES OF "Sai h. nsZ - " " ' " ' "' - - - - - ' I Screen Actress Dancer Retains Energies at 67 Edith McAlpin Advises Persons of Advancing Years to "Keep Going" EEP goin, If you'd have per - potual youth. Don't stop. Don't be put In a rut. That's the advice of Mrs. Edith McAlphin Benrlmo. At 66 she Is a movie actress and a grace ful dancer, as well as the mother of five children. "Nothing brings on old age so quickly as surrender to the gray hair and wrinkles that come inevitably with the years," she says. Don t sit by the fireside, dreaming of the days gone by. Dont humor the eyes with strong spectacles. Don't draw Into your shell, turtlelike, while the rest of the world goes merrily and wretchedly on. That is the surest way to create stiff limbs and create human fossils. If I cannot be vitally interested in the glorious things men and women are doing In the world I want to be out of It bodily." Mrs. Benrlmo had a twinge of rheu matism the year the boys came back from war. Her children and the doctors, with best intentions, tried to make her lead a quiet life. For answer she became a dnncing teacher at the Fox Hills Military hospital. She cured her rheumatism and helped" to cure the aches of many convalescent soldiers. She Is now appearing In a film being made by William Fox. William Farnum Is the star of It. That promises that It'll be no fireside, pink tea affair. PRISCILLA DEAN ADVISES GIRLS TO BE SELVES A noted screen critic recently 'announced that Prlscllla Dean has mors personality than any other actress on the screen. She Is half a dozen ordinary players In one. with a human dynamo sort of pep that bubbles over at every turn. An interviewer, questioning Prlscllla about the development of personality, received the following Information: "People are born with personality Just the same ns they are - born with good looks. But, being a mental quality, it can be cultivated. Of course the cultivated sort is not quits so attractive as ths natural brand. Boms people make the mistake of believing that affectation la personality. Ths affected person Is never sincere, and the Insincere person can never possess real personality. "By learning to be Individual, one can cultivate personality. One should learn to think for herself, to get an original angle on what she reads, sees and hears. Don't follow the herd , Maud Adams refused to do "Peter Tan" for tho movies because ahe would be required to ride n goat. Then Mary Pick ford's friends said she would do It. The latest Is that Betty Conipson Is to bs cast In that picture next Juns. SBBBSBBBBBBBBSSSSBBBBBBBBBBBBBSSBSSSBBBBSSSBaBSBBBBBBBBBSBJBBBBBBBBSBBBBBB Claim 'Deutschland ' Uber Movies, Replaces.

It flashes in all their movies The cry of f 'Deutschland uber Alles" was effectively stilled in the recent nasty disturbance, but the cry of "Deutschland uber Movies" grows to menacing - proportions. That is. German films hold the line against the producers of all other continental countries. 1 "Passion," by its faithful adherence to detail, has cut a wide swath in international filmland. Now comes the German film version, of "Carmen." The secret of German film strategy is detail. Complete arsenals of arms of past centuries are kept. Most of the big successes are historical spectacles or classics with military action. i A producing company going to location looks like a caravan of war lorries. Properties are carried in huge trucks. These properties clothing, uniforms, arms - nold to the customs of the period of the play with unfaltering fidelity.

FANS 'Girls, Help That Poor Skate Make Good, Says Star Martha Mansfield Warns - Against Selfish Search After "Good Times" HE greatest failing of most young girls In love Is their lack of Initiative, says Martha Mansfield, Selznlck star. What I mean to Imply is the astounding fact that nowadays many girls are serenely going out with young men Idly hoping that even tually the nuptial ties will fulfil their dreams. All of which Is ner - fectly fine in Its wav. but how mnnv girls munage to bring about the ideal of tholr dreams? To be a little more spcclfio let im any that the young man is a plodder, an earnest, persevering man ivhn. weekly stipend Is not big enough for him to pop the question. In a case of this nature whnt Is tho avpniRn girl to do? From a crlticul analysis of the matter I have found that mnny girls would absolutely refuse to tolerate such a mnn, more than is good for them. .Since the young man's prospects are nt present slim the thoughtless, selrixh girl whose dreams always dwell nn a plane of momentary, artificial pleasure would soon trunsfer her affections to a wealthier man. And in the process she mlrht wreck WTintever chances she hun for future happiness. But the young girl madly in love with a youth of moderate means can do nothing better' than to spur him tin to greater efforts. Open his eyes jto the fact that you are deeply In - (erestfd In his future welfare. Cheer lm up with happy thoughts, and liuoy him up wlfh your affections to the nth degree. If he is the right type of man ho will grit his teeth and put his shoulder to the wheel. And girls, in tho long run. when your man is mounting the ladder to success you will feel a sense of satisfaction that Is Indescribable Indescribable because, you alone will feel the thrill that paints a roseate hue toward Hfe's highway to happiness. SAYS EUROPE'S FILMS BETTER THROUGHOUT Europeun movie makers hnvo not yet learned ono photogrnphlo effect now used liv nearly ull first - rate directors on this side. That Is use of shadows whlrh veil the less Important parts of the scene, thus centreing attention on tho main figure or chief action of the moment. The old ay was to light up nit parts of t lie scene brlKhtly. In such a scene tho attention of the audience keeps moving from one detail to unothcr. The most important detail on which the whole event turns inny be missed. This less ndvunced method of ItKhting still is followed by most directors In Kurope. When a foreign film rings tnt hell, as soma do, It In not because much money or technical skill has been put into It, but because the story has been better thought nut than most stories pictured on this slda. Film Criticism Often Unfair in Verdict Is Claim Writer Says Travesties Some times Attempt to "Put Over" False Ideas lOhK who condemn ono or another sort of movies are not always quite fair in It. This seems to Indicate that even at their worst, movies seldom are as bifd as often they are represented. Consider Charles M. Sheldon, who wrote a much - dlscusHed book, "In His Steps," and conducted a daily ncwupiiper for one week In "strict conformity to the precepts of the New Testament." Sheldon, in a current mnKuxine of hltm literary standing, tells of golug to u movie theatre und seeing "a tremendously vulgar travesty of the ltllilH story of King Herod and John the HuptlHt." VulRar it may have been. But why did he not mention Salome? He might have said the reador might guess the movie was not a travesty of a Illhle story, but u travesty of a well - known stawe piny nameo Salome," or the Thoda liara movie Sulome"? Pola Negri Will Interpret Music Tho music of "Carmen" is to be Interpreted In films by the rhythm of Pola Negri's body. When one thinks of "Carmen. - ' one thinks Instantly of the toreador song. tho Habanera, the gypsy song. The music of Biset has a rhythm that lingers even after memory of the stirring action of the play fades. Himre one wonders how this work Is to be accomplished on the silent screen. The eye must deceive the ear. Pantomime must supplant melody. Tm,, "Carmen" hai been done In films before, but If memory serves , aright the eye was not deceived In that movie. Pantomime fell short of supplanting melody. But Pola Negri Is a master of pantomime. Hhe was premier danscuse of the Imperial Itusslan Bullet during the regime of the late csar. Then she appeared as a concert violinist. Thus dance and musio form the groundwork for her screen training. Iter artistry was attested to In "Passion," which is playing to capacity house all over America1 - " The "Carmen" film la ready' for release by First Nutlntml. Its screen title Is "Gypsy Blood." A thumbnail sketch of Pola Negri: Born In Poland. Twenty. !ght. Single. On stage n soon as she could walk. Ballet dncer. Violinist. Toured In spoken drama In France, Italy, Austria, (lermnny and Russia. Black hair. Flashing brown eyes. DECIDES FILM BEATS PEN IN POTENTIALITY 9if relative merit of the pen and the film as a medium of expression ha been the topic of many discussions which lead to ho conclusive end. However, the word of Louise Connolly Is interesting because she is both a bibliophile and a movie censor. She is nn educational expert of a library and secretary of a committee on motion pictures. She huf made an exhaustive study of films, the people "who see them, and viirloiMi theories of censorship. Here ure hm - views: "There are a few elevating and ennobling plays shown. There are a few mad and degrading plays shown. Almost all of the plays nhown are full of informational value, and many ore full of beuuty." And she suys that tho movies are greater than reading matter for new knowledge, appeal to reason, aesthe tic pleasure, moral stimulation, Idle pleasur and excitation of the pas sions. 18 - Year - Old Goodwim Comes From Ranks. Is One of Few in Motion Picture Industry Who Has Juvenile Role 1 P from the runks. where he won his spurs through sheer hard work, now comes Harold Goodwin to become a motion picture star at 18. William Fox announces that he has elevated young Goodwin to stellar honors and thut the young actor will bo wen during the present year under the Fox banner., Harold Goodwin tlas come to the front after going through the hard school or xperlencc, despite his youth. Whllo he hus supported sv. era I of the more prominent stars In loading roles, he started like most others, who have climbed to the top rung of success In tho picture world, by playing small parts when he was 11 years old. Directors soon saw the boy had talent, nnd from his first role at the age of 12. until the present time, he hus played with Shirley Mason, Mary Plckford Mary Miles M Inter, l.llll !c. ltebn Daniels. Dorothv (llsh. Mary Alden, Vivian Martin and Bessln Iive. He also plnyed rought parts with Tom Mix, Harry Carey, nnd William S. Hart, ns well ns roles with Jack Conway, Wallace ltcld. In early Griffith Productions and several pictures with Thomas Ince. In fact, Goodwin George Arlissi Enters Movie Stars Rea Noted English Actor, Aftel Long Aloofness, Makes Supreme Venture IX ALLY, and at last Oeorgj Arllss has rendered ons oi his characterisations for thl movies and the announce ment goes forth that then will soon be represented a lavls production In pictures. , His first film play is an adaptatloi of tho work in which he scored? s emphatically on the stage In Ne York back In 1908, so in making hi bow to motion picture patrons, Mi Arllss will come before his publlo II a role which, If only ty reputatlod Is fnm lar to all those who have an: Interest in the theatre, as ons of thl most conspicuous characterisation! of modern stage. In "The Devil." The presentation of George Arils in a picture drama has been talk of for years. Perhaps as many year as there have been picture drama and the announcement now that h will appear, 1a another illustration o the handsome reward that await those who persevere. ... I Mr. Arllss Is quoted as stating till reason for Joining the stars of thl cinema is the high estate to whlcl the photoplay has attained and hi belief and confidence in ths motioj picture as an established dramati form, worthy of the finest efforts O writers and actors. And so, to th crowing of the jrodueers who per) suaded him to star in a picture fo them, are added the praises of Mi Arllss for the photoplay. I Furthermore Ceorge Arllss, who if mvst enthusiastic about pictures, ha) admitted that they fascinated him asx that he found the studio "a uos congenial workshop for the drama tint." So one of the most d latin gulshed and aristocratic of the stag celebrities has succumbed to the luri that has cast its Influence over all and has Indeed taken the nrbvlj bait hook, line on sinker. The da) when the leading lights of the - thei atre cast a doubtful glance at thj pictures, stuck their tongues In theli checks when they beard H referret to as cinema "art," and smlllngh talked of the "movie Invasion," ha! definitely passed, a fact to whlcl the coming of George Arllss as i movie star gives convincing testl mony. - .1 SCREEN - TITLE COMBINATION "BEING REVIVED Combination of scene and sub - tlth. was one of the earliest experiment! by directors. The purpose was ta avoid interrupting the action of ths photoplay. I But it was found that an audience couldn't read the dialogue printed In one part of the screen and follow fhi action at the same time. And th whole idea was shelved. It is being revlhed now. with soft - focus photography. Theso photographs are dim and vague enough nol to distract attention from the subtitles, but Illustrate what the talk U about while the sub - titles are belnt; read. This Is akin to the stage device of suspending the action when something important la being said. ITALY SCREENS i OLD TESTAMENT Italians have succeeded getting the story of the Bible Into films before an United States firm which fore a United States Ann which Is in 22 reels.

It Is the Intention ofl Mr. rox to show him as tho sort at boy mothers like to see. He la a wholesome chap, and his picture will carry a lesson and do good work los ing nothln - of typical entertainment. in personality, Harold Goodwin strikes one aa a typical Ww rtraMitforwnrd, obsolutelv without! affection, modest, and even a bit shy at times. For his first work as aa extra, when he wus 13 years old ho tells with delirht that he received firty cents. ' I was Just about crazy," he says, "I thought it wns a fortune." That was with Carlyle Blarkwelt. and Goodwin says he could not understand how they could - ay UUS) so much money for Just walking ou In a scene. But he determined to earn more 60 cent pieces, and in a little while was playing small parts. That was the beginning of his u - ward climb. At II he was with Wallace Reld. and Dorothy h for n. W. Griffith. At Hi he had the lead with Shirley Mason. For the last two years his climb has been steadv until he has reached the pinnacle nnd now Is a full - fledged stnr. His smbltlon In life, he says, has always been to get as high as he could and to get the best there Is out of everything. This means professionally as well si in the pe'sonnl aim.
