THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. " NLW YOHK, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2. 192L ish Creations in Screenlme rama Slow Motion -By MARTIN B. DICKSTEIN- The News Reel T'l'omas H. luce Left the Cinema Some High Ideals and a ;'l;ofty Standard of Showmanship Will Hollywood Carry Them On? The Proof of the Picture Is in the Direction. 4 E Mod HOMAS H. INCE has walked The man who begun a career as t ' day circuit and rounded it out e screen Industry has even known, ilo sit beside the greatest Director of T pion, of clean drama; the world a lender in an Industry that has made great (prides In the direction of universal entertainment; and the theater a ere-itlve artist whose ability will not easily be mutched. Thomas H. Ince has jeft behind him a scrupulous code of showmanship which, followed as he had flowed It, will soon lift the motion picture to the high plane In public Opinion to Which the departed director has always aspired. j!j Thomas H, Ince came to New teigement In Cincinnati, where he had been appearing with the: Chester Park ppera Company. Some say he borrowed the fare to come;- ethers, that ho rode the "blind baggage" Into jersey City, where he landed with barely enough to be ferried across the river Into New York. . At any rate, he was broko when he arrived here, fend It was Joe Smiley who offered Jllm a Job at the old Imp Studios On West 66th st. at (5 a day as Wudlo assistant." When one of the directors at the studio resigned sud (ienly one day, Ince was given a Ohance with the megaphone and dtd si) well in that capacity that he was Retained as a regular first string director. His first production was jfclttle Nell's Tobacco," a short reel subject, but so deftly handled that he was sent to Cuba with a company Tieaded by Mary Plckford. On his return Ince was ordered to California, which was Just then beginning to attract picture producers as a likely capital for the Infant industry. He established a studio there, Jn Santa Monica, Cal., where a cot-pny was later established and christened "Incevllle." The young director began to attract the serious ittention of other-producers In the justness, and it wasn't long before l ie was offered the position of director general of the Triangle Film Corporation. The Triangle, Including at that time Ince, D. W. Griffith nd Mack Bennett, wai the first inducing company to experiment with feature length or five-reel subjects. They were the beginning of teet finished motion picture product Which are today being exhibited In the better cinema theaters through-but the world. ( Became Independent Producer. Upon the expiration of his contrast with Triangle, Thomas Ince ttegaa to produce his own pictures, which had a wide distribution through the release channels of ;Famous Players-Lasky. All that time he was continually Introducing Innovations to the celluloid drama, htch were speedily adopted by trther and less far-sighted directors. Ince produced some 80 pictures for Famous Players, after which he was offered a tempting contract to produce films for Associated. First National Pictures, Inc. ( Some of his more recent productions were "Civilization," filmed shortly after the beginning of the Great War Hid at that time considered the very feme of cinematic achievement; "The Hottentots," "Anna Christie," rated by critics as one of the most .rustic films ever made, and "The last Frontier," completed Just before the director's death and yet to e released.

Colleen Moore, the "flaming youth" girl, gathered much valu able experience under the able tute lage of the deceased director, as did Jane Novak, Wallace Beery, Knid Fennett, Lloyd Hughes and John Gilbert William S. Hart, Hobart Bosworth, victor Potel, Sessuo Hnya-kawa, Jos. De Grasse and Bessie Love all appeared In Ince productions early in their careers and point proudly to that experience as no small achievement ' The prints of Thomas H. Ince productions will gradually wear out with wear and tear and his pictures are probably destined for the great oblivion of the future. But no one now connected in even the humblest capacity with the motion picture industry will forget the man himself, the man who made stars and took none of the credit for his own. POLA NEGRI'S performance In "Forbidden Paradise." at the Rivoli last week, did Wore to prove the value of good direction In pictures than 15 volumes on the subject written by Cecil De Mille. Negri has appeared in some 10 or 12 Amer ican-made films since her starring contract with Famous Players, and, with the exception of the produc tion now showing on Broadway, she has never equaled the standard she established In lier 11 pictures made abroad. In "FoTbldden Paradise" the Polish star had the benefit of Ernst Lubltsch's direction for the first time since "Passion," which was .made In a foreign studio and enacted by foreign players. The effect was Hke that upon thoroughbred raoc horse when e. famillajr jockey takes the saddle. There was no balking, no rearing, no cause to brandish a whip. There was only complete understanding between director and star, an understanding which. even now seems to permeate the screen upon which the picture is projected. But what Impressed us, probably, more than any other factor in making the Lubitseh film a work of merit, was the absence of the de scriptive sub-title. The action is so chronologically perfect and incidents in th plot so gracefully linked that really there appears no need for even the most abbreviated explanation. Explanatory sub-titles have long been a painful thorn In the side of the scenario writer. They have been used since the birth of the cinema to bridge gaping holes In the con tinuity of the story. For the most ' Tinrt tlipv hnv hn VfMlv np)Mn Printed on ugly backgrounds, with usually the trademark of the producing company stuck smugly In a lowpr corner, they have lent no artistic value to tho presentation of the picture drama. With Intelligent direction and a fair sense of scenic coherence, Lubitseh saw no reason why the ungainly sub-title should not be abolished. So abolish if he did. And "Forbidden Paradise" has proved itself a better picture for it. There are other things that merit praise in the Negri picture besides direction and smoothness of continuity. There is the matured and restrained performance of the star herself. There is Vie splendid portrayal by Rod La, Itodiue of the young and susceptible .Captain of the Queen's Guards. There ts the suave and satiny characterization of the Prime Minister as it is done Adolph Men-.lou. And there is the perfect casrt-ing of all the other types who appear in the play. It lsn t often that so finished a cinematic product Is brought to the screen. We have but a single objection to make to this seemingly perfect job of picture making. The orig inal title, "The Czarina," should have been retained. RIISTMRANTS miOOKLYV. HOME COOKED THANKSGIVING DINNER, 90c AT Fred's "Broadway" RESTAURANT 1094 Broadway Bet. Reid ana D.Kilo Arcs. Regular Noonday Dinner, 45c AH 8R00KLYM STRAND LvMm Harold Lloyd in "Hot Water" at the Strand; The Breuoort Bill Harold Lloyd Is at the Brooklyn Strand Theater this week in his latest farce, "Hot Water." This llm played three weeks at the Strand in Manhattan to capacity attendance, but, according to a long-estublislied policy of the local playhouse, It will remain here for but a single week's engagement. Ever since he first began making feature length comedies, Harold Lloyd has been known for the motlviting thoughts upon which he has buildod each produc tion. There is a good deal of thought behind "Hot Water," to say nothing of a wealth of new "gags," which should make the film as popular here as It was during its three weeks' stay in Manhattan. "Hot Water" relates In hilarious fashion the troubles of a newly-married couple, when the wife's mother and her two brothers walk in and take possession of their little home. Lloyd makes use of the age-old mother-in-law theme to. excellent advantage. Jobyna Ralston, who appeared opposite , Harold in Ulrl Shy." again has the feminine leading role. In the supporting cast' are Josephme.Crowell, as the mother- in-law, and Cliarles Stevenson and Mickey McBan. , Manager Hymah has prepared an appropriate program to accompany the film, . embracing .nine different incidents, anion1;? which are one or two special Thanksgiving features. Herma Menth, a pianist from Vienna, makes her first appearance In Brooklyn at the Strand this week. Other artists who will help to make the current week a -conspicuous one are Eldora Stanford, soprnno soloist; the Ritz Male Quartet in their usual ?ulte of tuneful harmonies; Rosalie Erck, contralto; Mile. Francelll and her Strand Ballet. Other films on the program are a special Lloyd Hamilton comedy and the Mark Strand Topical Review. Miss Herma Manth, who has just returned from abroad, where sh.1 gave no less than 60 recitals, includ ing personal appearances 'vith ths leading orchestras of Europe, will be heard In a comparison recital with the Angelus reproducing pta io. The artists will appear with two pianos. One, the Angelus reproducin;; Instru ment, for which she hos recorded one part of the Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens, and mother wnich she will play by hand. This recital has been arranged through the courtesy of Angelus Hall, S50 Livingston st. "His Hour, a romance of Russia beforo the war, written by and directed under the supervision of Elinor Glyn, Is today's attraction at Loew's Brevoort Theater. In the cast are Alleen Prlnglo and John Gilbert. Tomorrow and Tuesday the Brevoort will present , "Worldy Goods," a comedy drama of malrl-mony, featuring Agnes Ayres and Pat O'Malley. Another feature will be "Turned Up," with Charles Hutchinson In the Btarrlng role. Cecil !. De Mllle's production, "F"et of Clay," with Rod La Rocque, Victor Varconl. Rlcardo Cortez. Julia Faye and Theodore Kosloff, la scheduled for presentation at the Brevoort both Wednesday and Thursday. For Friday and Saturday Buster Keaton's latest farce comedy, "The Navigator," will he shown. It la probably Buster's best. THE GARRET PLAYERS. The Brooklyn Theater Guild has changed its name to ths Garret Players. This was necessary owing to the confllctlon of the former name with thut of the New York Theater Guild. AMUSEMENTS MANHATTAN.

Credit Due Lloyd For Clean Comedy In a speech Ix'fore-the producers, publicity und advertising men in Los Argeles not long ago,. Will ,H, Hays rp;,de one of his most emphatic. statements' since becoming pilot of the motion picture industry.. ' . ; "Filth must be baniiihed from the scteen. There is no place for it there, any more than there is for It any place else." Pictures to be successful do not have to be loud or obscene, or appeal In ahy way to the baser emotions. The screen's greatest success has been built by a young man Harold Lloyd who has never resorted to that type of motion picture. ' , Four year3 ago his art : first be gan to be recognized by the American public. A Sailor Made Man established him as an artist of the highest degree.' From then on his climb has been steady and even sensational. Every picture has brought Mm new admirers, but never once htis a single objection been found. nen by the severest moralist, to any thing that ever appeared In his pictures. He proved convincingly that pictures can be kept clean and still be successful. Now ho comes to bat with another splendid comedy. "Hot Water," at the Brooklyn Mark Strand. In it there Is no sign of suggestiveness that sometimes creeps into the work cf other comedians on tho screen. "Hot Water" Is clean comedy, cleanly directed and cleanly acted. AMCSE5IENTS BROOKLYN.

There Is one thing we have learnud concerning the new Ktrohelm dim. For the first time In the history of the cinema, and v.e have II mi good authority, scenes of Death Valley, Cal., will be shown -on--a screen. Though many gruesome tales liave beon told about this treacherous stretch of alkali and quicksand, and many prospectors nnve Riven up their lives there, the illrentoi, of "Oreed" insisted upon tnkrr.g his company to the valley to ":hoot" the dramatic climax of Frank Norrls' famous novel. We've a mind that Stroheim has made a picture that won't be canl!y forgotten. Inspiration .pictures, Inc., announces the purchaxe of the screen rights.

"Great Music" is -the story of Erik Kane's struKitle to ex-press himself In music. The young getilus wanders from America to Rome, to Paris and finally to Port Said. It is Hot until he drirts to the Marquesas Islands In the Kouth Seas that his genius flnshesi into flame. Theni comes the Symphony In D Minor that is destined to lift him to fame. It Is more thnn probable that the title, "Great Music," will be changed to something more becoming the "silent" drama. ' , Wallace Beery and Frank Cam-peau have arrived here frorii Hollywood to appear In Thomas Melghan's next picture, "Coining Through," now being filmed nt tho Astoria studio.
