What the Press Agents Say AT THE ORPKEUM The Latin Quartor of Paris as It was before the grout war will continue to bo a field of romantic speculation to thooe who have never soon it. Naturally such a picturesquo environment has been used as tlje basis of many plays and photodramas. Now comes tile latest, "Eternal Love," a drama of contrast between the life of the studios in the capital city of Franco, and life in a little Brittany village, ThiB beautiful story of the redeeming love of a little peasant girl for a Parisian artist, will come as tho first Butterfly picture to the Orph-eum. AT THE EMPRESS In "A Wife by Proxy," the Metro wonderplay which will be seen at the Empress tonight, Mabel. Taliaferro, tho star, has unusually strong support. Robert Walker, . MIrb Taliaferro's leading man, who plays' Norton Bur-beck, haB been seen in several - Metro photo plays. Ho is afnative of Bethlehem, Pa., and was educated in New York City. He comes bf an artistic family, his uncles being Harry Hill-la i'd, tho famous opera singer, and Robort Milliard, actor. /( Saiiy Crute, as Beatrice Gaden, in "A Wife by Proxy," has a difficult role, wherein as a blonde adventuress she pits .her wits, against those of Jerry. Miss Crute is a forceful and convincing actress, whose success on the screen followed that*6h. the speaking stage. AT STARLAND Most of the biggest atari on the motion picture screen have cone up from the ranks of the extras. Mary Pickford is a conspicuous example. Many of those of the stage likewise. Elsie Ferguson was a chorus girl. Anyone who has ever been stage-struck should see "It Happened^ To AUelo" at Starland tonight becaMs'lt is q delightful picture in which a little girl becomes famous almost over night, and It Is doubly Interesting because the star herself, Oladys Leslie, has risen a meteor to the heights ot stardom. ' ' ' ., As an attraction extraordinary, Starland, commencing tomorrow, will present Mary Pickford In a new Art-craft picture, "A Romance of the Redwoods;" staged under the personal direction ot Cecil B. De Mllle. A woB'tern subject ot full-blooded, dramatic action, the new Pickford vehicle presents* "Little Mary" In a role that is entirely different from anything In which she has ever appeared on the screen. The story; was written by Mr. De Mllle himself in collaboration with Jennie MacnkveiN son and dlscZooes1 a wealth of typical Pickford Incidents of i�e*rt appeal. The settings are of the. day*. of '49 during the time of the Mg fBU (WlV ;
