ETHEL CLAYTON Is a pretty and
attractive player of the silent
drama and for that rpn n o n kIatia

many admirers. "Yankee Pluck" not
only presents this popular star In a
charming role, but offers Johnny Mines
in a great comedy part and Montagu
Love as a Japanese spy in a Wlllard
Mack yarn of International Intrigue,
mystery, romance and fun. "Yankee
Pluck" provides good entertainment.
It's a yarn constructed about an
army aeroplane invention and the at
tempts of a foreign power to steal the
plans. There is an average amount of
suspense Introduced, several good
punches and a generous supply of comedy.
Here's the story in a nutshell: Jack
Pollard (Charles Bowser) plans to mar
ry his daughter, Polly (Miss Clayton),
to his creditor. Singleton, In whose
past is a lady of doubtful character.
Polly refuses, as she loves Lieutenant
T ravers (Edward Langford), who is
perfecting certain plans invaluable to
his country. Baron Wootchi (Montagu
Love), raking advantage of Pollard's
need of money, offers him a large sum
to get hold of these plans. Pollard
succeeds by a trick, but Polly interferes
before damage is done and saves the
day. Travers pardons Pollard, who is
completely humbled and ready to sub
mit to Polly's marriage to the officer.
Today the management will offer. In
addition to "Yankee Pluck," the 12th
episode of the Pathe serial-thriller.

a mess of trouble that forces him to
masquerade as a widow. In the end he
wins Doris Pawn, who is owner of

steal the ranch from the girl, and gets
