ACTOR HANFORD NOW A
POLAR SEA DICTIONARY
Pormer Shakespearean Exponent Delves as Deeply Into Icebergs and
Penguins as He Did Into Richard m.
BY LEONE. CASS BAER.
CHARLES B. HANFORD and
Shakespeare, or rather, to put it In
point- of importance, Shakespeare
and Charles B. Hanford, have been In
separably linked lor so long: that it Is
next to impossible to get Mr. Hanford
to talk on any subject other than the
one nearest his heart, the Shakes
pearean drama, and its whys and
wherefores. Only one other subject
will tempt him to chatter at lengrth
and that one is as embracing: and opeu
to discussion as Shakespeare. Mr.
Hanford can be persuaded to talk about
motion pictures and about the Captain
S-"cott pictures in particular. He has
developed into the most rabid sort of
movie fan and the history of the 111
fated expedition has become ?o great
a part of him that he should be able
to write a wonderful book about It.
From every source which he finds pro
ductive he reads and digrs and delves
into research of the life and achieve
ments of every man who was ever as
sociated with the great explorer.
Kvery Scott Film Verified.
Mr. Hanford is one of the sort of
men who likes to "verify" thing's. So
far as possible he has verified all the
history of every phase In the Scott pic
tures, tor instance, he was reading: a
treatise on the habits of the penguin,
issued, by a London research society.
Personally, I considered It rather
heavy literature and said I preferred
looking- at the pictures.
Mr. Hanford said: "That isn't the
point. The penguin pictures tell
wonderful story of bird habits, and are
complete in detail. That in itself Is
small part of the pictures. I've made
n detailed study of all animal and bird
life in cold regions and a personal
reading research into Polar expedi
tions. I actually believe I could fit
one out and not go wrong in one es
sential. But I do not have hankerings
to go on any such wild chase.
"Movies" Chosen With Eyes Opea.
Mr. Hanford says that the chief rea
son he entered the (notion picture field
was because he looked over his usual
and time-honored field, Shakespearean

long tail: weight about 850 to 900.
repertoire, and realized that it was
so full of aspirants that someone would
have to get hurt. As a matter of record
there were 11 Shapespearean companies
on the road. Of these, only Robert Man-
tell and the Stratford Players, who
come next week to the Heillg. matte
any money. Margaret Anglin. Forbes
Robertson, Sothern, without Marlowe,
and even John Drew, have not made
Shapespeare pay this season.
Next year Mr. Hanford plans to re
turn to his first beloved. Shakespeare.
Mr. Hanford is a Californian and this is
the twenty-sixth time he has crossed
the continent. He calls Portland his
Mecca, and shares the delight of all
the much-traveled clan who may stay
any length of time in our city.
