FLASHES FROM THE

f

IN ANN ARBOR THIS WEEK,

l

SCREEN

AND ST AGE

By Edwin R. Ieiss
Coming directly from Cleveland and
on its way to Jackson and Chicago,
the Rainbow Review, a real honest to
goodness legitimate musical stage
production, will, hold Ann Arbor in its
clutches for forty-two minutes at each
performance beginning today and
making the record-breaking run of
one week at ithe Wuerth theatre on
Main street.
To say nothing else of the show, it
is at least something different, some-
thing which will make the old fellows
retell of the times when the Maj was
a vaudeville house. But not only do
we get to see the most beautiful girls
of America in person, but an old friend
who grew up with the movie art is
also appearing there in a risque farce
comedy only rivalled by the review it-
self. Blanche Sweet is the aforemen-
tioned friend, and her speedy vehicle
bears the cognomen, "Her Unwilling
Husband." This film will be changed
on Wednesday, so let's hurry down to
the Wuerth, as on the whole the bill
is quite amusing.
Maj. Has Melodrama
For those who like something less
frivolous and in fact deeply melodra-
matic the Majestic offers today a sce-
narization of that wild serial story
which ran in over six hundred news-
ppers throughout the country.
The picture has a real all-star cast
and its action is well carried out so
that there are no draggy and uninter-
esting parts. The story is one of the
west in which a jealous husband
brands his young wife with a cattle
iron in order that all men may know
that she belongs strictly to him.
One more alternative is offered to
movie-goers today by the Arcade.

Those who are versatile and like a
little frolic with their serious pictures,
let them hie forthtto see the picturiza-
tion of Al Christie's stage success en-
titled "So Long Letty," coupled with
a three-reel film of Sir Ernest Shack-
leton's famous Antarctic expedition.
The story of "So Long Letty" is ab-
sorbing, to say the least. Two newly-
weds have!their troubles because they
are apparently mismated. The hus-
band of one couple and the wife of
the other are both peppy and cabaret-
loving individuals, while the husband
of the other couple and the wife of
one enjoy to keep the home fires burn-
ing and not go out at all. So the men
decide that they will get a divorce and
marry each other's wives. Before do-
ing this, however, they exchange wives
for a week, just as a trial: Of course
this is where the story begins, but the
men don't change spouses, after all.
The picture is as good.as can be ex-

Like You?" which was sung originally
in "Floradora" in an entrancing man-
ner. Some other entertaining songs
are rendered, with Miss Eleanor Paint-
er as the prima donna.
Fanny and Frederic Hatton, who
wrote "The Great Lover," have pro-
duced a musical comedy entitled "The
Songbird," which plays at the Garrick,
in Detroit this week, with Marguerita,
Sylva in the lead. Miss Sylva is direct,
from grand opera and is pleasingly
capable in this new production.
David Butler, a newly contracted
satellite who slipped off of the legiti-
mate stage onto the screen, appears
at the Wuerth as a supplement to the
Rainbow Review for the latter halfl
of the week. David Butler is on the
type of Charles Ray, and as seems toE
be the fashion nowadays, his story is'
taken from a Saturday Evening Post
novelette by George Weston. To some
this is a recommendation. In the
words of Shakespeare, take it as you
like it.
"Cinderella's Town?'
For those who have seen Viola Dana
in her last picture "at the Arcade it
will be a pleasure to hear that said,
amusing comedienne is returning to
said screen dispensary this Wednes-
day in "'Cinderella's Twin," an im-
probable story entertainingly present-
ed. The plot is thick and tangled, butj
it is sufficient to say that the ideals
of democracy are upheld and before
the finish sign is put up a scullery
maid has been conjugally bound with
a scion of society.t
The Majestic seems to have a lean-,
ing towards the deep and mystic this
week. Wednesday there is scheduled
a film dealing with the occult sciences,
bearing the name of "Unseen Forces."
It centers about a country girl pos-
'essed of uncanny powers, and gives
some of our campus amateurs an idea
of how to become a salaamed and feted
New York medium.
Just to lighten things up a bit, the
Majestic is offering for the last two
days of the week a comedy drama fea-
turing Mildred Harris Chaplin, nee
Mildred Harris. The name is "Old

Dad," and it is slated as one of the
best that Mrs. Chaplin has produced.
H. B. Warner turns up at the Arcade
this Friday in the role of a laborer.
His vehicle is entitled "Uncharted
Channels," a story which deals with
the problems of industrial unrest now
confronting the country. Warner's
characterizations are often termed
Chesterfieldian. To use a more mod-
ern application of this phrase, we
might say that they certainly do sat-j
isfy.
At the Orpheum on Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week Alice Brady
is playing in a return engagement of
"The New York Idea," a well-produced
picture, but with a moral over-empha-
sized. Alice Brady, although still an
excellent actress, lacks her usual
beauty in this film.
Around the World'
(Continued from Page One)
of dentists in that portion of the'world
as the South Africans have for years
entered the Dental college, almost
without exception.
Chinese women seem to be generally
possessed with the desire to become
doctors. This is due in part to the
fact that one of the Chinese graduates
of the University, Dr. Ida Kahn, took
her degree in medicine, and since her
return to China she has established a
number of hospitals which have done
a great work in the fight against
disease.
The majority of the men from the
Orient are engineers. Prof. J .A. C.
Hildner of the German department,
who is in direct charge of the foreign
students of the Vniversity, considers
that this is caused by the fact that
these men are anxious to acquire
Western ideas .and that the field of

The foreign students are divided as
