This is the first Ince subject from the pen of Lanier Bartlett, and is spoken of as the most picturesque drama ever made at the Ince plant. It is a pathetic story of a mountain girl of the gold country, the daughter of a grouchy father. Miss Markey appears in practically every scene, she playing the title role, which is said to be the most exacting ever attempted by her. Reginald Barker directed this picture, which has a strong cast of Ince players. William S. Hart will have Margery Wilson as his leading woman in the new production which was taken up last week. This is a western drama by Monte Katterjohn, which gives Hart the role of a new characterization of a gun-fighter. Interior scenes for the Hart picture are being made at the Culver City studio, and upon the completion of these, the western actor and his aggregation of buccaroos will return to the hills, valleys and plateaus of Inceville. The administration building of the Ince Culver City studios served as an exterior setting for a scene in the subject Ra>mond B. West is now filming with Louise Glaum, Charles Ray and Dorothy Dalton as stars. This is the first time any of the new buildings which constitute the Culver City plant have been used for a " location." Westy and Miss Glaum are using their waiting moments in the training of a marmoset, recently received from South America. This small representative of the monkey tribe has conbinced both director and actress that what he lacks in size he makes up in fierceness, for both have been scratched and bitten numerous times. Miss Glaum will use the marmoset as a pet in scenes in this production. The Ince cameraman had a narrow escape last week.

Continuity for the new photodrama is being prepared by J. G. Hawks. " Bugs," the comedy drama being made under the direction of Paul Powell, from the story and scenario by William E. Wing, will serve to introduce new microscopic motion pictures made by a process invented by Louis H. Tolhurst of Los Angeles. Tolhurst became interested in motion pictures more than two years ago from the educational standpoint, and has perfected a new process for photographing germs and other representatives of the smallest form of animal life. Tolhurst and \\ ing have formed a partnership, and following the completion of this picture, plan to manufacture additional subjects for schools and colleges. "Bugs" will show the Tolhurst-Wing acting microbes, some of which while not being as large as the point of a pin, will occupy the entire screen and show their fierceness in numerous ways. Wilfred Lvicas, Constance Talmadge and F. .\. Turner ha\e con May Cloy (American) sented to play important parts in this subject, which stars microbes.
