Joplin Globe (Newspaper) - October 28, 1928, Joplin, Missouri 22 JOPLIN GLOBE, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1928. SCREEN and Sccneifwm .THE HIT OF THE SHOW^ t it "The Whio - mm TO SEE "GAY PAREE" BEFORE GOTHAM Joplin, for once, has the jump on New York. For the first time in the ken of local theatrical historians, a big Winter Garden revue will be presented here before Manhattan is regaled with its Rabelaisian jovialities and opulent spectacles; "Gay Paree" will be seen at the Joplin Sunday, November 18, matinee and night. The show is destined for the Winter Garden after its preliminary tour. In time past, it has been the practice to play the larger musical ?hows in points adjacent to New York. The success of last season's "Gay Paree" and "A Night in Spain" in the central and far west, after coming from New York, caused the Shuberts to attempt the experiment of sending the all new "Gay Paree" on tour of a few of the countr>''s leading cities prior to the Manhattan inaugural. In presenting the latest of the "Gay Paree" series, the Shuberts have identified it as "L-Edition de Bal des Quatre Arts," or, in "common U. S.," "Four Arts Ball Edition." HADJI ALI HEADLINER AT ELECTRIC FIRST HALF Hadji Ali! With a name like that, it is reasonable to expect something considerably removed from "the run of mine." And he doesn't disappoint, as patrons of the Electric will testify the first half of this week. Ali, who is a" towering young Egyptian, has a "tum-tum" capacity that would make an ostrich turn over and play dead. He drinks 60 to 100 glasses of water, wash GILBERT ROLAND HERE IN "THE WOMAN DISPUTED" There is a thundering of horses' hoofs on Holly^vood's horizon. The hard-riding heroes of the movie west are about to gallop into" talking pictures. Apparently it is going to be a race between William S. Hart and Tom Mix. Hart is in the midst of negotiations which he hopes will be settled within a week or two, and Mix says his new boss, J. P. Kennedy, is pending him sound-recording equipment with which to try out his own voice and that of Tonj-, his horse. Time alone will tell the outcome of the contest, lor at this stage of talking picture history no man can predict when his sound-equipment and sound-experts will be ready to begin shooting. Gilbert Roland, who plays opposite Norma Talmadge for the third consecutive time In "The Woman Disputed," at the Hippodrome starting today, was born in Mexico in 1904, the son of Spanish parents. His father had been a famous Spanish oreador, as had other members of the family, and Gilbert, then Luis Antonio Demas-co de Alonzo, had vouthful dreams of a career in the bull ring. But fate stepped in, and the youth, after acquiring an education from books, decided to explore the world. His travels took him to Hollywood-and the motion picture virus began its work! He changed his name-borrowing from two of his favorite stars, John Gilbert and Ruth Roland-and began storming the studio gates, at first without much success. Finally the break came, with a part in "The Plastic Age,"'starring Clara Bow. Within a week of the picture's release Roland was the recipient of several offers from big producing companies. Joseph M. Schenck and Norma Talmadge, at that time casting about for a leading man for Miss "Talmadge in "Camille," saw his work on the screen and sent for him. He took a test and the next day was signed to play opposite the United Artists' star as "Armand," the hero of the younger Alexander Dumas' immortal classic. That settled it. The young Spaniard signed a long term contract with the Schenck organization. ' Halloween Eve Masquerade DANCE PICHEK, OKLA.

Other acts on the bill include "Whitey" Roberts, a tall, ingratiat ing blond who tells stories, sings, dances and does about everything a person can do to entertain. Dault and LaMarr are two fun making rough and tumble funsters, whose antics cause one continuous round of laughter. Thrills and excitement of every possible description in "The Whip," screen version of the most famou.a of Drury Lane melodramas. The play has been filmed faithfully with all the thrills, train wrecks, horse races and auto smashups magnified by the eye of the camera. Dorothy Mackaill plays the featured feminine role, with Ralph Forbes, Anna Q. Nilsson, Lowell Sherman, Mare McDermott and others in the oast. and gives promise of his becoming one of the foremost stars of the films. Based on the Viola Brothers Shore novel, "Notices," the picture shows the actor, after his fifteen years' struggle to reach New York, having his first big part cut to nothing at dress rehearsal through his efforts to advance the girl he loves. In a thrilling climax, "Twisty" saves the girl from the villainous leading man, and after a great ftght in the dressing room takes the latter's part on opening night. "THE HIT OF THE SHOW" AT ORPHEUM THIS WEEK A deft and skillful combination of melodrama, pathos, comedy and realism makes "The Hit of the Show," presented by Movetone equipment with dialogue and sound effects, at the Orpheum this week, one of the most entertaining photoplays of the season. Adroitly directed with many Inimitable touches by Ralph Ince, ti\e picture shows with unerring reality the trials and tribulations of the ever-aspiring members of/ the theatrical profession. It is an intimate and always interesting portrayal of backstage life. Joe E. Brown, who has for many years been a beloved star of the musical comedy stage, handles himself like a veteran and transfers to the screen every bit of the personality that made him famous before the footlights. His work as "Twisty," the old trouper who for years has striven to reach Broadway stardom, is acting of the highest order.

Mix has an interesting slant on the new talking screen. "We have been calling our pictures the silent drama for many years," he says. "Now, at last, thanks to talking pictures, we stars are really going to get a little silent drama. Heretofore everyone on the set has talked, from the director to thei electricians, with the star trying to act in competition with all this conversation. Now the star will have a chance to talk for the microphone and the others will have to keep quiet. As for the megaphone, that belongs to the director; he can use it now for a stool. The megaphoning days are over." Canned Example. Even the pictures still being made without dialog are being influenced by the vogue of "canned" music on the screen. John Gilbert and Greta Garbo are doing their latest love scenes to the accompaniment of a =uper-phonograph, instead of the usual studio orchestra; and Tay Garnett, director, has been using a radio singer on his sets lately. Talking Grief. There is a reason for the annoyance some producers register when talking pictures are mentioned. Some of them now are making each picture twice, in order to have a good silent version in addition to the talking version. Douglas MacLean's latest, "The Carnation Kid," is going through this double production system, and Johnny Hines is making an en-tiVely separate talking version of his silent "Pair of Sixes." Some Air "Heroes." Newspapers have made so much fuss over transatlantic and transpacific and North and South Pole flyers; that historians are apt to lose sight of the intrepid air pioneers of Hollywood. To refresh the recollectipns of such scholars and the general public, therefore, the honor roll of hoUywood's air conquerors is published herewith: Gladys McConnell, the first motion picture actress to serve a Sunday breakfast to guests flying 7,000 feet above the studios. Harold Lloyd, the first screen star to -risk sending a print of his latest picture aloft to b6 previewed in an air-liner projection room. Prlscilla Dean, the first movie actress to star In a bridge party given in the clouds. Dolores Del Rio, the first star to have a farewell party In the upper atmosphere.

Before the iriovles became an international pastime, nearly everyone who tried to coin a word describing pictures that move insisted on something ending in -scope, -ope, or -graph. There came into being the phenaklstoscope, the zbetrope, the zoopraxoscope, the cinematographe, the bio: 30pe, the vitascope, the praxinoscope, the eidoloscope, the taohyscope and many others. And when the name-coiners were all trough, the public yawned and said, "Let's go to the movies." Now the name-coiners are busy with talking pictures. So far the contributions consist only of words ending in -tone, -phone, or -film. Various companies have announced the movietone, the vitaphone, the unitone, the cinephone, the photo-phone, the madalatone, the phon-fllm, the vocafilm, th phototon, the bristolphone and the hana-^hone.
