MARY ROBERTS RINEHART
No star, young or old, has ever appeared in a finer picture. Jackie outdoes himself
in this, the most charming story ever to reach the screen.
Special Music Score- By
Long Live the Ring
With Jackie Coogan
Showing at Grand
Jackie Coogan, peer of the juve
niles or the screen world, is to
asaln appear before the theater
goers of Salem in the interpreia
tion of Mary Roberts Rinehart's
greatest siory, "Long Live the
King." which is billed to open at
I lie Craml theater today and re
main through the weekend, clos
ing Sunday night.
While it cost over $fiH.00 to
produce "Long Live the King."
the real strength of the picture
Is not in the settings, which are
elaborate and monumental, but in
the story and the interpretation
it is given. by Jackie and a cast
which boasts of such names as
Rosemary Thelby, Ruth Renick.
Alan Hale, Monti Collins and a doz
en others whose names are well
nnd favorably known to the pub
lic. The story was selected from
thousands under consideration,
not only Tor its own dramatic
qualities, but because it promised
the opportunity tor a full play
or Jackie's peculiar talents.
But the thrills and the heart
throbs of the picture do not entire
ly allow one to overlook the mag
nificence of the settings and the
unusual proportions of the film.
For instance, 100,000 feet of lum
ber. 50.000 cubic feet of plaster,
3,500 pounds of spikes, and 28.
000 square feet of -Atone flagging
were used in the const ruction of
the picture in the film, and 10,
000 square feet of earth were ex
cavated for the groat canal and
plaza which figure so prominent
ly in the production.
The costume designs for the
mythical people with which the
story deals aresaid to present one
of the artistic accomplishments of
the moviiiR picture industry. It
is largely due to the costuming
that "Long Live the King" has
been rated by critics as one of the
most beautiful pictures that has
ever been filmed.
