the production of motion pictures.
It appears to be an opportune time
to give attention to Brieux' great
work, "Damaged Goods," which created
fcueu a profound impression upon
American theater-goers last year.
The drama was brousrht to this coun
try and stuped by Richard Bennett,
who directs the motion picture produc

The play teems with dramatic action,
rising from facts which are met in
every-day life by the average person.
It is full of vital facts, powerful les
tsons and drives home realities of life
that could not be so convincingly por
trayed in literature or upon the stage.
It is a tale of human weaknesses

"DOLLAR MARK" AT COLUMBIA
George Broadhurst's Drama Shows
Methods In Financial World.
George Broadhurst's great drama,
"The rollar Mark," the companion play
of "The Man of the Hour," produced by
William A- Srady, comes to the. Colum
bia Theater today for a three-day stand.
As "The Man of the Hour" succeeds in
covering the crookedness of municipal
politics, so does "The Dollar Mark" sue
ceeded in covering the methods of the
Lnnanclal world. It is a strong cast in
which are featured Robert Warwick,
who starred in the original stage pro
duction, and Barbara Tennant.
The action opens In Cobalt and closes
in New York City and Newport. It is
markedly a picture of vigorous action
which rings true throughout. The best
part of the story is the adventure of
the two lovers in a flood. A terrible
storm has driven the girl, who is the
daughter of the president of a big trust,
to seek shelter in Jim Gresham's cabin.
The dam breaks and the flood sweeps
the valley, carrying with it the cabin.
The hut's heavy door serves Jim and
Alice as a raft. The current carries
them swiftly toward the rapids. Every
inch of this film will hold as tight as a
