PLAYERS STARRING IN "THE EXPLOITS OF ELAINE
ARNOLD DALY, who through his
work in Candida" became in
such a short space of time one of
the most-talked-of actors in America,
has signed with Pathe to take the
leading part in their new serial, "The
Exploits of Elaine." That Mr. Daly
stands in. the very front rank of the
theatrical profession today is self
evident, and tnat he has been signed
by Pathe for the new serial proves
conclusively that 'The Exploits of
Elaine " will be a vastly different prop
osition from "The Perils of Pauline."
in that the new story will require most
artistic Interpretation, and not depend
so much upon sensational incidents for
Mr. Daly is an object lesson to the
ambitious young American by proving
that there is plenty of room at the top
and that true ability will be recognized
in spite of all handicaps. Some 10
years ago he was office boy for Charles
Frohman. surely a sufficiently humble
beginning in the theatrical profession
to satisfv the most ardent admirer of
such works of fiction as "From Cabin
Boy to President." Born in New York,
he showed the average New York boy's
sublime Indifference to the favorites of
fame, and they still tell stories along
Broadway of young Daly's scornful at
titude towards the famous playwrights
and theatrical stars wno can upon jiu.
Mr. Daly can be best described by
the word "brilliant." He fairly scin
tillates as a player, a conversational
ist and a story teller. He was the first
man In America to study George Ber
nard Shaw and see in him much more
than a fiery and intellectual freak. Mr.
Daly, in fine, is a real and serious stu
dent of the drama. Being of Irish
descent. Mr. Daly could not help but
be witty. It Is said of him that on
one occasion he was invited to a din
ner of the descendants of the Pilgrim
F'tiy.rt "J wu called upon Xox
toast. He rose and, with a rare twinkle
in his eve. (mid as follows: "To the
Plymouth Rock the Blarney stone of
our dear America." He is also epi
grammatic, as the following recent
statement of his will prove: "Culture
will rid the world of war unless war
first rids the world of culture." So
Pathe has made a 10-strike in securing
this brillt&nt Irish-American actor, who
is a thinker as well as an artist. As
Craig Kennedy in "The Exploits of
Elaine," he should gain new laurels
and stamp the new serial with his de
cidedly interesting personality.
Sheldon Lewis, whose interpretation
at Putci Joe U W, A. Brady's big pro
duction of "Life" at the Manhattan
Opera-House is attracting such fa
vorable notice, has been signed by
Pathe to take a prominent part in tne
new serial. "The Exploits of Elaine."
Mr. Lewis was born in Philadelphia,
of Genan-Amerlcan parentage, and
had hardly got beyond the nursing
bottle stage before he announced to
his parents his intention of going upon
the stage. His father was in the whole
sale milk business in Philadelphia and
this fact was remembered by Mr. Lewis'
first audience in an amusing way. He
had .secured an engagement in a small
role at the Gerard-avenue Theater in
Philadelphia. No sooner had be walked
upon the stage than various of his boy
hnnrf nisvfpllnwii in the audience Bhout
ed "Milk" at him and the rest of the
crowd took it up. Uproarous applause
greeted every line that he spoke and.
to use theatrical parlance, he "took
the show away from the star."
Mr. Lewis always Insists upon play
ing a character according to his own
Interpretation. Of studious tempera
ment, he analyzes each motive and
trait of the part and endeavors by
every inflection of the voice and every
action to disclose the mind and charac
ter beneath. That he adds unusual
talent to the fine cast of "The Exploits
of Elaine" goes without saying.
Several years ago MIfs Pearl White
received a tempting offer from the
Pathe Freres American Stock Com
pany to appear In pictures. That de
termined her profession and with Pathe
she has been ever since, with the ex
ception of short Intervals.
When "The Perils of Pauline" w
started Miss White selected for
the role of Pauline, and" certainly no
better selection could have been made.
Hhe took chances that very few men
would have taken and today has the
reputation In the Puttie studio as be.
In the nerviest woman that ever
worked In pictures.
