great film shows at the Capitol
theater for three days beginning
today. Jan.; 26.
The early portions of "Faust"
are made in those sombre brown
tones so beloved by followers of
the great painter. 1 Faust himself
looks like the-'Old-phllosopher in
one of the" master's paintings. I He
comes fnto a room from the dim
recesses and takes his place with
the other characters like some
wraith ot a far-gone past.
For the later continuity, when
Faust is a youth again, and meets
Marguerite, to fall In love with
her, a romantic background is em
ployed. There is the lightness of
spring in every setting; flowers
and shrubs abound; a spirit of out
doors, healthy; fresh and clean
pervades " the atmosphere. Two
young lovers have met, and life is
rosy. This gayness and charm
