i "Plastigrams" are not really the
solution of "the third dimension in
the movies, for they must be
viewed through special lenses
handed but to the audience by the
ushers. The lens consists .of a
cardboard framed spectacles, j the
lenses are colored, the red going

over the left. , ' 1
A biof trick work introduces
the third dimension.; Double ex

Appear as a mixture of red and

the special glasses and. closed one

If yon look at-the screen with

'While Paris Sleeps" :
j Coming to Liberty
What i&- considered by critics to
be one of the finest portrayals of
Parisian life evier depicted on the
silver sheet comes to the Liberty
theatre1 on Friday in "the picture.
"While; Paris Sleeps."
' This picture is'an adaptation of
the story "The Glory of I.ove," by
Pans, and has Tor its locale the
Latin-Quarter of Paris. AH the
mystery, glamour- and romance of
that interesting! section of Paris
has been woven' in a picture that
abounds with suspense and; thrills.
The story deals' ; with ; an. un
scrupulous sculptor who is de
termined to win the love of his
beautiful modeljby fair meansror
foul. She meets a young Amer-
'. ican and they fall in Jove with
each other.; The adventures and
complications which, beset their
path and the intrigues in which
they become involved makes an
enthralling and) entertaining pic
ture. j : :!'.-' "
Maurice Tourneur, who has
been called the' "poet of the
screen because of the artistic
realism which he injects into his
productions, has spared no effort
to reproduce in his settings and
scenes the atmosphere so typical
of Paris' artist quarter.
Lon Chaney, who is considered
the greatest character actor on
the screen, gives a realistic touch
to the role of the sculptor The
role of the young American is por
trayed by John I Gilbert, and Mil
dred Manning lends her beauty
an dhistrionic ability to the char
acter of the charming model.''
Other members of the cast are
Harden Kirkland. Jack P, Mac
Donald and F. Farrell MacDonald.
