"A Pair of Silk Stockings," at the Morosro this week. Is the sort of dark and awesome farce from which one departs in fierce and perplexed meditation. It has no beginning, and the audience quickly decided that its ending should be about the first night. That is the way we all thought .bout it at the close of Act I. By the end of Act I w were mildly in terested, and bad slight expectations. Act III was near-human and al most truly interesting. If it was all good as Act III e would havi gone away saying "It is a pretty little thing, isnt it?" The truth is that a big play in a little theater la bad enough, and that a little theater play in a big house is grewsome, especially It it be comedy. "A Pair of Silk Stockings' ran for a year In New York at the Little Theater, and It is a play of small stage proportions. Even then, the people must have gone to see the company, for the bizarre playlet it self has hardly enough meat to turn a string of people in Its direction. After the pattern of "Hobson's Choice," "A Pair of Silk Stockings' is entirely English, but as It. was played by a company of Americans yesterday afternoon, we could at least bear Us picturesque slang, even though we may not always have understood It. Most English plays deserve to be sent to the German firing line, not to be mercifully shot, but to be strangled with gas bombs. It would be the same thing if we offered In the heart of London a series of mountain feud stories from Tennessee or Kentucky. Over there they would not understand, and they would not care if they did. "A Pair of Silk Stockings" is not provincial, however. It has a plot that is general and might have been created anywhere. It is only in treatment and expression the play is peculiarly British. Probably the chief fault of the offering Is that pretty much of the whole dragging first act la given to a senseless rehearsal. A play within a play Is always stupid, and this one is much worse than usual. Then, too, the cast contains a number of characters who have nothing to do with the play. This Is notably true In the case of Irene Maltland, a strong and dainty bit. The Real Thing in Comedy, i. V 'jr. . y ... "Our Mrs. McChesney." At least, that's who Rose Stahl is this trip. She will appear In the play of a modern' business woman, beginning tonight at the Mason. beautifully presented by Sue Mac-Manamy. Miss Muitland is quite the nicest person the author creates, but la completely lost in the final accounting. She is the only one who really loves the hero in a grownup way, and It all comes to nothing. On the other hand, we are invited to squander . our sympathies on a little whimpering doll to whom the hero should never have been engaged in the tirst place.

The piece Is not heavy enough for the Morosco stage or company, and has only the third act to commend it. FRIVOLS. News and Reviews. GRIFFITH CHANGES. laflMAIMILlIE!

Griffith, the master plcturs producer, has severed his connee tions with tho Fln Arts Film Com. pany and with the Triangle. This announcement has been expected for some time, but it was not until yes terday that the definite news was received. This, however, came by wire from authoritative eastern sources, leaving no doubt that the break has really occurred. Mr. Griffith will arrive In Los An geles some time this week. His plans for the future, accord ing to his own statement to the sources above stated, is to at once obtain a studio of his own in Los Angeles, where he will immediately begin the production of six 'and eight-reel pictures, such as made him famous In the old Biograph days. He will not affiliate with any corporation or any other persons, It is said he has an immense amount of capital back of the new proposi tlon, including both his own and eastern money. He will rent studio pending the erection of his own plant, which latter will be handsome and permanent affair, equipped with all the latest lm provements used in the making of pictures. Mr. Griffith will write as well as direct all his own stories, Robert Harron and Lillian Gish will remain with Mr. Griffith as the stars of his new company, but he also intends to bring a number of persons from New York with him It is known that automatically, with Griffith's resignation from the Triangle, the contracts of several heads of departments of the fine Arts studio become void. Whether these people will remain with Fine Arts or will go to some other studio. either individually or collectively, is a question, several of these con tracts made with the Fine Arts con tain clauses which render them null in the event of Mr. Griffith resign' lng. Some of the more Important per. sons who have been closely associated with Mr. Griffith, including Frank E. woods, manager of pro. ductions. and Mary O'Connor, head of the scenario department; Direc tors Paul Powell, Lloyd Ingraham and Edward Dillon, and among the stars, Dorothy Gish ana Bessie Love refused yesterday to give out any statements as to their future plans, They may remain with Fine Arts, although it Is known all the above named have received several natter lng offers from other companies of late. , The output of the Fine Arts studio under the direction of Mr. Woods, with Miss O'Connor as head of the scenario department, has main talned a high standari Griffith is world famous as the producer of "The Birth of a Na tion" and "Intolerance." With his withdrawal from the Triangle, It Is oulte possible a reorganization r)f that corporation, long reported imminent, will take place. Ing, which was the French Revolu-I tion. conveyed not with a weary repetition of battle scenes, but in a few magnlflcent flashes and Intimate personal touches a stupendous crowd burling Itself against a frowning Baatile. a tide of humanity swept by passion after its prey up a conflagration lighted side street, individual encounters between haughty noDlilty ana in named populace, even glimpse ol a iragile and sentlv- bred woman being borne to the guillotine above the heads of a clamoring mob, while with dread monotony recurs the Ignoble cart bearing Its tragic human burden to execution. A great handler of mobs Is this Frank Lloyd, lie tuatmgea always to convey the spirit of his mobs. The storming of the BasUle Is the most vivid thing of the sort we have had aside from ttri Babylon scenes in "Intolerance." Muscles taut with fierce passion hoist men to the top of the walls, whence they drop into the moat to perish or swim, accord ing to fates behest; hundreds of them die that a ftiw may lower the drawbridge. All the while, however. the human element or more ex-actlv, the concrete interest of the characters whom the revolution af fected in Dickens's tale, is nbver lost sight of. William Farnum plays the double role of Sidney Carton and Charles Darn ay, and gives a truly subtle haracterlzation of each; the light- hearted, debonair Darnay, to whom fortune brought everything and the brilliant, erratic, drunken, but gen erous-hearted Sidney Carton, doomed to all pitiful ill-fortune. To our mind he falls down in only one scene the last moments in prison, when he falls to convey a senes of the rrimness of his situation. On his way to the guillotine, too, Mr. Farnum displays the same lack of strength; but he has a moment of real exaltation which makes up for it, when he utters the -immortal words: "It Is a far, far better thing that I do than I have ever done." Mme. Roslta Marstinl as Mme. De- farge Ives a performance which stands out like a cameo. She is Latin to the finger-tips, is this Mme. De- farge, which Mme. Marstinl gives us, and ' as a leading spirit of her coterie, a tigerish incarnation of the Revolutionary passions she gives a truly Inspired performance. Charles Clary, forever competent above his opportunities. Is a mar. velously haughty and disdainful Evremonde. One hopes Indeed to see this Intelligent and forceful actor given a real part some day. Herschal Mayall as Defarge, Ralph Lewis as Roger Cly. William Clifford as Ga belle, and the other characters are all sustained with complete lntelll. gence. There Is a girl not named on the programme, who does one of the most striking bits of acting to be seen In the whole photoplay she who cheers Carton's last moments before execution. It's only a flash but in her face are depths of passionate understanding, of ' a love, hopeless but divine, as she, too, passes under the guillotine. Jewel Carmen looks sweet enough for any man to be willing to din for, and gives an adequate performance as the lovely, helpless pawn of fate. Burhnnk. Quite a goodly number of people seem to consider the Burbank pleasant place to visit of a Sunday afternoon and evening, so why quarrel with the pretty girl souffle which Is offered there under the all-em bracing, vaguely alluring title, "The Revue of 3917?" That title "Revue," by the way, is like the after-dinner speech of a United States Senator, who described . his post prandial oratory as being "like that species of dishabille known as Mother Hubbard covers everything and touches nothing. The Ra- mona number is new, and haa some pretty scenic and lighting effects, showing an old mission church with the chorus clad as Spanish girls, demurely entering and leaving the portals. A pleasing chorus numrier snowed the girls arrayed in short pink dresses. Jingling sleighbells on wrists and ankles as they sang. If the girls don t look out. those futuriBt" costumes will catch up with themselves; they have already been used several weeks. Mabel Baker did not appear, ow. ing to some misunderstanding with the company at rehearsal Saturday night. It is rumored, and Lillian Wiggins deserves credit for coming in at the eleventh hour, and with one rehearsal playing the leading feminine role very charmingly in deed. If there were any holes In her lines (mas.) or songs, one did not note them. She Is a pretty girl, with pleasing voice and personality. Ben T. Dillon still plays an Irish. man inimitably, and George Spauld Ing, Bob Sandberg. Bobby Ryles, Carl Case, Jack Rockwell, Bert Morey, Maxle Mitchell, Hazel Regan and Elslnore Faye made individual hits. Supcrba. "Those Without Sin," which is the name of the feature being shown at the Superba this week, would ap pear to apply to the people of the South at the time of the Civil War, All the northerners Introduced are rotters. Adding insult to injury, the northern soldiers are shown as very bad shots. Dtdn t a whole com pany of them fire at a southerner who was to be snot as a spy, and didn't they all miss him twenty feet away, he making his escape? Aside from the above, however, and the doubtful taste of the risk of stirring up bad blood between such of North and South as still remember old contentions, "Those Without Sin," la an interesting pho. toplay, with Blanche Sweet as Its star. Miss Sweet's downrlghtness and sincerity, her entire lack of affecta tion, her never-failing intelligence, are prominent as ever In this role of Melanie Landry, the southern belle, a role which in less capable hands would have been turned Into a mere puppet. Tom Foreman, George Beranger, Mabel Van Buren, Guy Oliver, James Nelll and the others, appear to advantage in their various roles There is likewise a little girl who Is distinguished by beauty and a prodl gallty of that potent something known as personality, who does a good hit. Taken all In all, the picture is only fair, and : not up to the Lasky standard. The Burton Holmes Travelogue adds distinction to the programme.

To expand gloomy and hysterical vaudeville sketch of about thirty minutes duration into a motion-picture drama of two and a half hours' length, and do so entertainingly, is an undertaking that is likely to derive more merit from the effort than tbu result. Even D. W. Griffith would be likely to shy at It, even somebody ottered to oet mm he couldn't, and though the story afforded an unexcelled opportunity for allegory. The only thing Herbert Brxmon missed in making "War Brides" the feature In which Alia Nazlmova appears this week at the Majestic, was an allegory. He brought everything else into the play from revolting se duction scenes down to maternity hospitals where they "breed soldiers" that have ever had anything to do with war. I hate to think what War Brides" would have been in the hands of a less clever director than Brenon. He never misses a stroke of continuity; there are few implausibilities except toward the end of the picture. Brenon has been minute to tne last degree In his photography. He gets every angle of every essential emo. tion. He has fifteen or twenty min. utes of close-ups in the scene where Nazimova, as Joan, is Informed of the death of irer busoana, ana tne mother of the death of her three sons on the battlefield. Every face is scrutinized by 'the camera as it registers the anticipatory effects of the news and the realization. All the art of the Selznlck cor poration has been lavished on the production. The types and characters are chosen With extreme taste and discrimination. Some of the people, who originally were in the War Brides" sketch are retained in principal parts beside Nazlmova. Surpassing judgment nas Deen used in general in the pictures se cured of Nazimova, especially to avoid the overdoing of expressions by her. Still Nazimova could never be made into a really great screen actress because she never can avoid the emotional outbreaks. In which she literally tears her expressions of feeling to shreds. Thery are mo ments where she toucnes greatness in her acting from a screen stand point, but they are not the rule, sne has a thrilling personality, nowever. which even the absence of her voice cannot efface. The weakness of "War Brides" as a Dhotonlay is a fundamental one. It comes right back to the principle of the thing cited in the first parar graph. You can t make a thirty- minute sketch Into an eight-reel Dhotodrama. Brenon and his scenario writer or writers have stretched every inci dent to its limit They have diluted the nasty acid of the original until its power to corrode Is lost. After the end of the rope is rrhed as far as the original idea is concerned, tne story is varied to stretch out for an other reel or so. CHANGE IN VERSION. In the photo version. Instead of Joan committing suicide after the death of her husband and her revolt against the edict urging women - to bear children to repopulate the coun try. she starts In like a really strong- minded women might under the circumstances, to raise an awful rum pus about the order. She preclpl tates herself among a startled group of war brides and grooms in church, stops the service, and deliv ers an oration to the assembled mul tltudeo n the awful heinousness of raising your .boy to be a solider. She is promptly rached off to prison. Then begins a mess of drivel about her mind becoming affected She plays upon the sympathies of a woman Jailor so the latter rails asleep and lets her have the keys. (Since when do we have women Jailors In war prisons Brenon please write.) When Nazimova es capes she goes around and gets all her women friends to agree to try to stop the war by refusing to bear any more children. It so happens that the King who started the war is passing through the village at the time. The women surround ms au tomoblle. Nazimova Is at their head. Standing In front of the radla. tor she shakes her fist In the King s face, and says: "Promise to stop the war or we will stop giving you soldiers to fight." 'Nay, nay Pauline, says the King. "Can't do it." Whereupon Nazimova takes out her trusty revolver, flourishes it a few times and shoots herself in the chest. The name Joan would indicate that we are to regard the heroine of "War Brides ' as a modern Joan of Arc going down to death for a great cause. The dinerence Between joan of "War Brides" and Joan of Arc, the heroine of the photodrama which just finished an engagement at the Majestic, is the difference be- tween inspired genius and Insanity. The end of the one historical immor tallty; the end of the other self-de structlon. "War Brides" falls by Just that much as the embodiment of a great idea. Melba Concert Appeals. ' Mme. Melba is ever a Joy to the matinee audience. She has the faculty for meeting their demands for a pleasure of not too steeply erudite order, and her personality is apparently never brighter than under the genuinely intimate circumstances that prevail, though she is not strictly speaking an artist of the Intimate type. Still when she sits down at the piano to play her accompaniments for "Mattinata" and "Vol che Sapete" as Bhe did Satur day afternoon at Trinity, you are sure of that natural and spontane ous popularity the public accords her. Melba's programme as a whole was one in which you could hardly miss picking a favorite. It was the kind of programme tnat would appeal to the fine lace fancier quits as much as to the cotton goods specialist In the Irish lace class was "Lo, the Gentle Lark" and "Aubade" from "Le Rol d'Ts;" "Les Anges Pleurent" and "Chant Venitien" by Bemberg; "Ave Maria" from "Othello" and the encore, "Magdalen at Michael's Gate" by Lehmann. Original homespurf material was "John Anderson, My Joe," Tosti's "Good-by" ahd "Annie Laurie." Mme. Melba was at her best She sang with much expression, and was sprightly and gay in her acceptance of the plaudits. - It was a concert that had a bit of glamour about It Mme. Melba's voice while not perfectly rounded in the tipper register, seemed to be much fuller than when she sang here lost week. In her matinee recital she added to her list of assisting artists. Jay Plowe, the local flutist who played the obllgato for Lo, the Gentle Lark" very effectively, and gave a mellow-toned and accurate rendition of an Andante and SchenaT by Ganne. For encore he gave solus Falling Leaves' by Donjon. Antonio de Grass), the violinist. whose interpretations possess a de cidedly personal charm, opened the programme with a Ballade and Pol onaise by Vleuxtemps and played a group of numbers, including two of his own pleasing compositions. His encore was the "Caprice Viennois" by Kreisler. His poise in playing enables him to veritably talk direct ly to his audience. The one fault he shows is a tendency toward technical carelessness, due to overdoing the assurance idea. Is there a plethora of accompanist? You would think so from the number which appeared at the Melba rectll. Including herself there were four, the other three being Archibald Sessions. Uda Waldrop and Ruby Gray. Waldrop assisted De Grass! exclusively; Miss Gray assisted Mme. Melba,' and Archibald Sessions of this city, effectively per formed general utility service, by ac companying &oth Mme. Melba and Jay Plowe. in the case of tne tormer, both at organ and piano. Mr. Sessions has evidenced his ability in a very satisfying manner at this event and the previous concert 'J'flc BEST OF VAUDEVILLE BEGINNING MATINEE TODAY Another Nine-Act Showl Winifred Uooke BecitaL Clearness of thought and practl cal carrying out thereof goes far to ward calling forth your approval for a musician of such technical finish as Winifred Hooke, who was heard in recital Saturday evening at Blancn. ard Hall. All the more value may be attached to the performance, when the Interpreter goes out of the beaten highways of concert pro. frammine. and gives you such nov elties even among the classic and semi-classio Chopin s Second Bal lade in F major, and Schumann's Caprice sur un theme de Paganlnl, MacDowell's "Danse Andaiouee. Even Beethoven's Variations In C minor are heard none too often, for which the average member of the audience Is perhaps truly thankful. unless he likes "dry facta and stern realities" of music. . The Drinclnal novelty of Miss Hooke's programme was the Sonata for 'cello and piano by Debussy, which she played with Axel Simon sen, solo 'cellist of the Symphony Orchestra. They say you get to like this De.bussy number after you''e heard it a few times, I'm al ways open to conviction, but it hap pens that I've only heard the De bussy number once, and consequent. ly refuse to rave about it except the finale, which Is Interesting in its wav. if vo uhaDnen to like that par ticular way at first sight. It Is pitched high in the 'cello's compass and the piano is assigned the duty of spinning off Jrllls for decorative purposes. Prologues always seem more or less unnecessary and the prologue" of the Debussy sonata seems particularly so. The Serenade movement is ana It Isn't; it Is, because it tum-tums. and it isn t .because It doesn t tee dle-mm-tum, while it Is tum-tum r-;ik, which is the only way I can express this nut stuff. Altogether, it is not Debussy at the best. The rendition by Mr. Slmonsen and Miss Hooke was balanced, and effective with the possible exception of the handling of the unusual rhythms at the opening of the Serenade. Another Debussy number, the fa. miliar "Reflets dans l'eau" seemed to provide Miss Hooke especially ade. auate opportunity for expression. She has made an especial study of modern music and plays It excep. tionally well. Her rendition of the Etude by Liszt was very graceful, In this number and portions of the variations by Beethoven, one caught flashes of that clear crystal sparkle that Is one of the best features of her playing. In Chopin's Ballade she showed lack of breadth and In terpretatlve power, especially toward the close. Her style does not make Beethoven strongly interesting either. She clad Schumann's caprice in a dainty cloak of tone and tech. nique. Her work as a whole reveals fin Ish and touches of brilliance, but would gain by greater power. Musical Notes. Several noted artists will come in to our midst today. Josef Hoffman will arrive from the north; while Al bert Spalding, the violinist, and An dre Benoist his accompanist will arrive from the south. Rudolph Gans is due here Tuesday. The Young American chorus, or ganized under the direction of Mme. S. Maquet-Devilder, will hold its regular rehearsal tomorrow evening at Normal Hill Auditorium, Axel Simonsen, well-known local 'cellist, has been engaged to assist Mme. Melba in her recitals at Fasa dena, Redlands and Riverside. Mr. Slmonsen s principal number on these programmes will be the Saint. Saens Concerto in A minor. Bizarre. ROBBED OF CLOTHES.
