"The Little Minister"-(Joint
Review) Vitagraph version
starring Alice Calhoun
It is too bad that the same story
should have been put into pictures
by two different companies andore-
leased at the same time; both pic-
tures will suffer. Under the cir-
cumstances, there is only one way
to review these picturesand give
a clear idea of their appealing and
entertaining qualities--by a com-
The Vitagraph version is the bet-
ter of the two. The Vitagraph
picture has been produced with
more care: its supporting cast has
been selected more intelligently,
its atmosphere is truer to life, it is
better acted, and its continuity is
smoother. As a consequence it
arouses tenser interest, and awak-
ens for the principal characters
warmer sympathy. The other ver-
sion, on the other hand, is a cheap
production; the supporting cast is
poor, the acting fair, and the con-
tinuity not quite smooth. It does
not arouse much interest except in
one or two situations, and hardly
awakens any sympathy. The plot,
in fact, is nothing but the skeleton
of James Barrie's story, without
those human touches that make
one feel as if present in a real-life
occurrance, and which are found in
the Vitagraph version.
As to the leading players, the one
in the Vitagraph picture are by far
the superior. Miss Calhoun is a
more refined actress. As a gypsy,
she acts the part; as a lady, she
looks and acts every bit of it-is
better adapted to the role.
It Happened in
T HE town was peaceful and
all the villagers were having
ter arrived; but soon there was
a holiday when. the new minis-
trouble brewing. The soldiers
marched on the weavers, stirred
to action by the little gypsy and
Gavin had his first battlerof love
with this girl of mystery. At
first he was angry with her and
then his anger turned to love.
The story is a classic. The pic-
ture is a perfect representation
of the story. A work that will
stand out in the annals of mo-
tion picture films as the best of
