Carlos Leases More Ground for Fox Studios General Western Representative Takes Plot Across the Street from the Hollywood Stages for Accommodation of the Eight Companies EDWARD JOSE TAKES A SHORT VACATION— WILL DIRECT PEARL WHITE ON RETURN Edward Jose, after sixty continuous weeks of work producing pictures for Pathe, during which time he has been hardly able to call an hour his own, is taking a week's vacation. On his return Mr. Jose will resume the direction of " Pearl of the Army," the new serial which Astra is producing for Pathe. Pearl White is starred in this serial. Special to Motion Picture News. Los Angeles, Sept. 16. GENERAL WESTERN REPRESENTATIVE A. CARLOS has found the two big studios of the William Fox organization to have insufficient stage space to accommodate the eight companies now working, and has leased grounds immediately across the street from the Hollywood studio where new stages will be built. This ground covers an entire block, and, if necessary, a greater portion of it can be secured. At the present time, however, but one stage is being built. This will be 60 by 160 feet, but the construction is such that additional stage space may be built adjoining. The additional stages will be inclosed to bar out the ever-interested public. The new stage will contain a traveling roadway and other comedy securing apparatus. Two Fox companies are absent from the studio. Richard Stanton and Players, numbering thirty in all, are still in the vicinity of El Paso making scenes for the international boundary story. Their work there has been delayed by rains almost daily, and their absence, which at first was expected to consist of but ten days, will be stretched out to two weeks or more. The second company went to Sacramento, Cal., to secure water scenes. In this party, which is under the direction of Frank Lloyd, there are sixty-seven people. The principals are Gladys Brockwell, George Webb, William Clifford, Hershall Mayall, Carl von Schiller, Jim Farley, Ray Hanford, Ed. Alexander, and others. The story has Eastern and Far North atmosphere, and the former will be secured at San Francisco and along the Sacramento River. J. C. Jessen.

PRESIDENT GEORGE K. SPOOR of Essanay will present Charlie Chaplin in the Essanay-Chaplin Revue of 1916. It will be in five reels, and released through the General Film Service. What were deemed by producers, press and public as the three greatest pictures in which he had appeared for Essanay were selected for the review. They are, " His New Job," " The Tramp " and " A Night Out." Those of the trade to whom has been made known Mr. Spoor's plan have grown enthusiastic over it. " His New Job " is the picture he made when first obtained by Essanay. The Essanay-Chaplin Revue of 1916 is a selection of what that company believes his greatest work. Bookings for this feature are now being recorded in all branch offices of General Film Service. According to Essanay officials, the popularity of Essanay-Chaplins still holds and there is no diminution in the number of prints in daily use. In fact, not a day passes in the Essanaj' laboratories in which no new copies of his pictures are not manufactured.
