March 25, 1922 EXHIBITORS HERALD 73 rox Strength of the Pines, with William Russell.— One of William Russell's good ones. The picture will go good anywhere where Russell is liked.— J. Carbonell, Monroe theatre, Key West, Fla.— Neighborhood patronage. Gleam o' Dawn, with John Gilbert.— Pleased about 5 per cent and displeased 95 per cent.— J. N. Schwartzwalder, Universal theatre, Auburn, N. Y. — General patronage. OVER THE HILL, with a special cast. — Words cannot express what a remarkable picture this is. As long as you see pictures and as long as you run them you will never see one again like this. It is a story everyone can understand. There are no complications. Pictures like this will not only add prestige to your theatre, but will go a long way toward downing the reformer. Hence censorship. Did the audience cry? Certainly. They broke down like babies. Even the orchestra stopped playing. A sight like this has never been seen before. Every exhibitor in the United States should run this picture, even though he doesn't make money. He owes it to his patrons. Our admissions were 25 and 50 cents.— W. E. Elkin, Temple theatre, Aberdeen, Miss. Riding with Death, with Charles Jones. — Very good picture. Jones always pleases for me. — Walton Carroll, Royal theatre, Fullerton, Neb. — General patronage. The Night Horseman, with Tom Mix. — To the general American public, Tom Mix appeals, and he gets 'em. The Night Horseman is a western that will please almost any audience. — H. W. McCampbell. Auditorium theatre, Carpinteria, Cal. — Neighborhood patronage. Straight from the Shoulder, with Charles Jones. — Very good show. I had many comments at the door. Ran Sunshine comedy with it. Book this if you want a good western. — W. T. Biggs, Unique theatre. Anita, la.— Neighborhood patronage. Bar Nothing, with Charles J ones. — Jones sure did something in this one. Best of his to date.

Schmidt, Grand theatre, Breese, IllGeneral patronage. Colorado Pluck, with William Russell. — Very fine production.— J. J. Hoffman. Happy Hour theatre, Burke, S. D. — Neighborhood patronage.

Perjury, with William Farnum.— Fine picture, with fine business prevailing. — William Noble, Rialto theatre, Oklahoma City. Okla. — General patronage. Get Your Man, with Charles Jones. — Jones is not coming, he has arrived, and several of our western characters will be kept moving or be left in the rear. His Get Your Man is very good. My crowd said so. — H. W. McCampbell, Auditorium theatre, Carpinteria, Cal. — Neighborhood patronage. The Devil Within, with Dustin Farnum. — A very good picture, but the title scared the women away. — W. H. Creal, Sr., Suburban theatre, Omaha, Neb. — Neighborhood patronage. A Rough Diamond, with Tom Mix. — Pleased big crowds with this fine Mix subject. Played on Saturday and just suited the crowd of that day. Mix never fails to pack 'em in for me. — H. P. Stewart, Dreka theatre, DeLand, Fla. — Neighborhood patronage. Bare Knuckles, with William Russell. — A good Fox picture. — J. W. Schmidt, Grand theatre, Breese, 111. — General patronage. A Stage Romance, with William Farnum.— Have run my share of poor ones, but didn't know how poor they could be until I ran this. If you try to satisfy your patrons, lay off this. Can't express my disgust with this picture. — Walter Carroll, Royal theatre, Fullerton, Neb. — General patronage. Hands Off, with Tom Mix. — Good. — J. W. Schmidt, Mgr., Grand theatre, Breese, 111. — General patronage. Hodk IRENE DALTON, who appears in support of Lloyd Hamilton in his latest fun-maker, "The Rainmaker," an Educational-Mermaid comedy. inson Cameron of the Royal Mounted, with a special cast. — Excellent. Played this on Washington's Birthday and had a line out all day. Let's have more like it. — Luna theatre, Brooklyn, N. Y. — Neighborhood patronage. Jane Eyre, a Hugo Ballin production. — This one drew good crowds for a week and met with the general satisfaction of most patrons. — Samuel Harding, Doric theatre, Kansas City, Mo. Riders of the Dawn, with Roy Stewart. — Zane Grey's name on a one-sheet gets us as much business as any star. This is a real picture, satisfying all our audience. Many complimented the production.— C. T. Metcalf, Opera House, Greenfield, 111. — Small town patronage. The Mysterious Rider, a Zane Grey production. — This picture was enjoyed by everyone. Drew better than average business. — W. L. Berryman, Lyric the Ten Pictures That Made Money for Me The following ten productions are the biggest money getters this theatre has played since last September. 1. The Mysterious Rider. 2.

SAM SAX, New Grand theatre, Portland, Ore. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. atre, Bartlesville, Okla.— General patronage. The Broken Gate, with Bessie Barriscale.— The best Barriscale production we have ever used. A hard theme to handle without offense, yet it goes over splendidly. Splendid cast throughout.— C. T.

Plenty of good comedy.— Raymond Gear, Mayflower theatre, Florence, Kan.— General patronage. A Poor Relation, with Will Rogers — Fair. Not up to standard.— M. W. Mattecheck, Liberty theatre, Kennewick, Wash.— Neighborhood patronage. Doubling For Romeo, with Will Rogers—This star is one of the writer's favorites, but not so with our people. We have made more money with what we consider junk, but why kick, since the people are always right? This is one of his very best pictures, and pleased those who saw it immensely. The lighting and photography are not up to the Goldwyn standard, however, but perhaps we got a dark print.— W. H. Creal, St. Suburban theatre, Omaha, Neb. — Neighborhood patronage. The Strange Boarder, with Will Rogers—Rogers is a good drawing card here. That kid of his will be a second Wesley Barry if given a chance.— R J Ball, Star theatre, Finley, N. D.— Neighborhood patronage. The Old Nest, with a special cast.— The only special we have made any money on in months. We say The Old Nest is the nearest 100 per cent picture we have ever shown. — C. T. Metcalf Opera House, Greenfield, 111.— Small town patronage. The Man Who Had Everything, with Jack Pickford. — This one seemed to please, and also brought in a lot of new folks.— Will F. Taddiken.
