At the Orpheum tonight. AT STARLAND About four years ago there was a real grown-up actress who had a regular job and a younger sister. The job was over in Flatbush in the Vita-graph picture factory and by that same token. Little Sister was usually, discoverable in that same vicinity. The grown up actress at this stage in our romance from real life, was of the mature age of seventeen sprightly summers, and Little Sister was fourteen. Well, you know how it is, yourself-if you see anyone around often enough, at last he or she seems like one of the family. So Little Sister kept playin' around until one day she kind of happened to get in front of the camera when it was working, and right then she won a job of her own. Little SJster is Constance Talmadge, sister of Norma, and she makes her debut as a star in Select Pictures, in the splendid version of Cosmo Hamilton's great novel, "Scandal," now playing at Starland, and her interpretation of the spoiled society girl who attempts to shape her life without regard to the old-fdshioned conventionalities is a tine bit of characterization. The picture is the first of a series in which Miss Talmadge will be starred and was'directed by Charles Giblyu. It is distributed by Select. of his studio.

Hero Young American "The Honor System" deals with a -career of a young American, educated, honorable and refined, who goes to seek his fortune in the great Southwest. There he encounters friends and enemies, the wolves of graft and cruelty) as well as thenoble at. heart. The big action is maintained through a series of extraordinary adventures which, however, are not adventures at all, but transcripts of fact ot life as it is actually lived beyond the pale and far from long established communities. The love interest is said to be delightful, and the comedy touches are numerous. There is nothing' in drama that can be compared with this new sort of film play. In its bigness and universality of quality St reminds one of such great biographical novelB as "David Copperfield" and "Les Mis-erables."
