The film is instructive and
at the same time includes
several amusing incidents
"The Old Homestead," the greatest
rural drama ever written in" which tlm
late Denman Thompson stirred for ov
er thirty years, has at last been adapt
ed is a feature play by the Famous
Players Film company by special inf
ringement with Friink Thompson, son
aud heir of the author-actor. This great
American classic will be seen as a
Paramount lecture nt the Ye Liberty
Friday and Katnrdnf. i
Through the active eo-opeiution of
the younger Thompson, the producers
have been able to preserve to a re
markable degree the atmosphere and
spirit of tiie original play. This wn-i
accomplished by means of photographs
of the first Josh Whiteomb and of tho
costumes worn by the various members
of tho supporting cist. Of special im
portance in this connection was tb"
obtaining of permission to use the old
Thompson homestead in New Hamp
shire, which was the setting depicted
in the original play, as the background
of the film. Director James Kirkwood
and his company went to the old New
Kngland village where they spent sev
eral weeks in photographing scenes in
and about the Thompson farm and in
the outlying country where there sti'l
exists to a remarkable degree the sanm
interesting and delightful types tlmt
were found by Thompson when he wroto
the play three decades ago. F.von the
interior of the Thompson home woh
used for some of tho scenes which
transpired in the house.
Another interesting link between tiio
st.ige nnd the screen lies in the fuct
that old Grace church, which appeared
in painted canvas as a backdrop in tho
original presentation of the play,
serves as the ictnal background for the
corresponding scenes in the film.
H was in 1875 that Denman Thomp
son, while suffering from an attack of
rheumatism during an engagement at
Martin's Viriety theatre in lt tsbnrjj.
conceived the idea of a rural dr.imntic
sketch which he then called "Joshua,
Whiteonib." The success of this
sketch led him to expand it into a pin
which was presented for the ifrst timo
at the Boston theatre in lssii under its
present title, "The Old Homestead."
The marvelous popularity of this rus
tic drama, "which has mule an unpar
alleled appeal to all classes and ages
ever since its first appearance, is easily
explained by the fact that it p.iints
real life in. its truest and best aspects,
and that it tells the simplest of stories
concerning the simplest of people. It Is
human nature without its coiifusiii.;
and baffling veneer the sort of char
acterizations that, everybody compre
hends because of its very n.iivete.
