BIG SENSATION PLANNED BY DOUG Production of the Thief of Bagdad is Well Under Way Los Angeles. — Douglas Fairbanks again has set for himself the task of producing the photoplay sensation of the year, and according to reports from the studio, is well on the way to succeeding with "The Thief of Bagdad," plans for the production of which are well under way. "Where 'Eobin Hood' left off, 'The Thief of Bagdad' will begin." That is the slogan being pasted in the hats of those who are to be associated closely with this feature. On the Piekford-Fairbanks studio property large sets are under way. The usual processses for the erection of picture structures of this kind has been reversed in preparing for the construction work in connection with this new film. As a rule drawings are made from which models are built, after which the sets are put up. In this instance, however, models were first made, then the drawings and finally the sets, thus making possible greater freedom and latitude in all construction work. William Cameron Mexses and Irvin J. Martin specially engaged by Mr. Fairbanks to create something wholly new and different in the way of setting, have produced what it is believed will bring forth an innovation in motion picture edifices. START PRODUCTION ON VALLEY OF CONTENT UNKNOWN PURPLE New York.— "The Unknown Purple" which is now being made on the coast by the A.

Whatever Ford said to the boy, he didn't like it, for when Director Lambert Hillyer called the actor, Johnny cried out. "Say, who is that wise cracker from the biscuit factory? What is his name? BARKER PRODUCTION Los Angeles. — Blanche Upright's "The Valley of Content," the. screen rights for which were purchased by Mr. Mayer some time ago, will be a Eeginald Barker production for Louis B.
