Friday, May 16
AT THE MAJESTIC
"Poor Boob," an adaptation of Mar-
garet Mayo's famous stage success and
featuring Bryant Washburn, will be
shown today and tomorrow at the Ma-
jestic. It is said to be a typical Bry-
ant Washburn picture with the star
ideally cast in the role of an ostens-
ble failure who doesn't prove to be the
"poor boob" he seems.
Simpson - more generally known as
"Simp" Hightower, is leaving his nat-
al village, ostensibly a failure - in
reality, tricked out of his rights to
the canning factory by Stephen Dou-
glas, who also wins away Tiny Par-
cel, the girl who fills the thoughts of
Simp to the exclusion of everything;
Simp goes to New York, where he
begins a fight against tremendous
odds. The struggle ends, however,
with Simp the possessor of a flourish-
ing business, nominated as Hightow-
er's next candidate for congress, and
really beginning to live.
AT THE WHITNEY
Although - the sea-elephant is al-
most extinct, Lyman H. Howe's came-
ra men succeeded in filming the cap-
ture of a huge one in the South Sea
Islands, this film being an interest-
ing feature of the latest Howe Travel
Festival which comes to the Whitney
Friday night, May 16.
The sea-elephant, whose head looks
remarkably like that of ihs terrestrial
name-sake, ranges up to 30 feet in
length and five tons in weight. The
picture shows the animal being cap-
tred alive for an American zoo and
the exciting moments of the six hour
fight to rope him furnish real thrills.
The same series also shows the cap-
tur of sharks and swordfish in the re-
mote South Seas.
The Howe Travel Festival has al-
ways been famous for its animated car-
toon comedies. This year's products
are -,said to be the funniest films yet
cresi ed by the Howe artists.
AT THE ARCADE
A return engagement of "The For-
bidden City," featuring 'Norma Tal-
madge, has been secured for today at
the Arcade in order to meet the de-
mands of patrons. This is the first
time in Miss Talmadge's 'career that
she has ever appeared in a Chinese
play. In "The Forbidden City" she
plays first the daughter of a prom-
inezit Chinese mandarin, and later a
Chinese-American Red Cross nurse
who marries an American officer.
Thomas Meighan plays opposite the
Hale Hamilton will appear tomorrow
in "That's Good," a comedy drama said
to be full of "punch." (Supposedly the
Marie Prevost, Charlie Lynn and
Tom Kennedy appear in the latest
Paramont - Sennett comedy, "East
'Lynn with Variations," a burlesque
of the old sage favorite. It is said
the two former actors furnish the
Rast Lynn portion while the latter
supplies the Variations.
Lina Cavelieri's "The Two Brides,"
her latest photoplay, is regarded by
critics as one of the biggest hits of
hor screen career.

Simpson Hightower was "Simp" by name and "sitp"
by nature. Making mistakes was his forte.
They say that angels protect "boobs" and ""simps."
It surely looked like it the time "Simp" made his last
mistake. What did he do? Better come and see:
