Play icJ11 'Withinl the Law" iHas
Stirred Up So Much Enthusiasm
as Jack Lait's Piece
One of the big lines in Jack Lait's
e success, "Help Wanted," says, "It's
4 -fine to be good looking, but it
often interferes with business." And
4.how true this line is in the life of
girls who are employed in offices as
This play, supported by the creden-
-tial of its 39 weeks' engagement at the
Cort theater in Chicago, as well as its
long run on Broadway, will come to
the Whitney theater on Monday night,'
April 26. Not since "Within the Law"
has any play stirred up as much en-
thusiasm as has Jack Lait's piece. Mr.
Lait's comedy is a reflex of some of our
complex industrial developments, and
f while its humors are splendidly en-
larged upon to a chorus of laughter,
its truthful message has the grip of
hunan appeal that lends virility to the

Porter Emerson Browne, who has
been hailed as "The" American dram-
atist, accomplished his greatest suc-
cess when he penned his daring, virile
drama 'of a weak man and an unscru-
pulous vampire-woman, "A Fool There
Was" of which the screen version has
been made by William Fox, as a pro-
duction extraordinary, released through
the Box Office Attraction Co. This re-
markable drama, in which Robert Hil-
liard 'starred and achieved a notable

success, created a nation-wide di.cus-
sion at the time of its presentation
and had a record breaking run at the
Liberty theater, New York City.
Based upon Kipling's poem and
Burnes-Jones' famous painting, Mr.
Browne, has succeeded in creating in
"A Fool There Was" a work that, for
daring originality and sheer power and
moving qualities outdoes, in its own
particular field of the drama, any play
of recent years. It is the tale of a
weak-willed man and a woman of sin-
ister beauty and vampire heart.
"The Fool" and "His Wife" are hap-
pily married and living in a style com-
mensurate with his large fortune at a
country house at Larchm6nt. "The
Fool," at the beginning of the play, is
a virile, fine natured man, fond of his
home, his wife and little child and de-
voted to wholesome sport. Then comes
the meeting with the "The Vampire"
who is destined to ultimately ruin and'
drive him to a degraded death. "The
Fool" at first resists the wiles of theI
sinuous, strangely fascinating Vampire.

But she bides her time knowing by an
experience, mile-stoned by blasted car-

Father versus Stepson

The proprietor of a big business con-

payment of $5,000. The business man
advertises in the "Help Wanted" col-

whose exceptional comeliness appeals
to his beauty-loving eye. He has a
