"PARIS" GOULDING'S BEST
Maker of "Sun-Up" Surpasses All Previous Achievements In this Exotic Film

Charles Ray -- in the habiliments of an American millionaire's son -- and no trace of the country about him; Joan Crawford, glittering beauty in the drab costume and character of an Apache dancing girl in the Paris underworld; douglas Gilmore, delineator of aristocratic Britishers, as "The Cat,"" sinister ruler of the Apache gangsters of Paris -- these are some of the surprises in store for screen fans in "Paris," Edmund Goulding's new Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production coming to the Boulevard, August 15.

It is a vivid, exotic tale of Paris -- not the glitter-night life -- but the other side of Paris -- among the Apaches and desperadoes who form a world of their own in a subterranean kingdom. It is a gripping mystery drama in which the actors themselves, in the diversity of their roles, create an atmosphere of suspense that is carried out through every moment of the tense drama. And -- there are laughs galore, too. Goulding has evolved what is undoubtedly as great a piece of entertainment as has ever graced the screen menu.

The cast is notable, including Douglas Gilmore, Mme. Rose Dione, Michael Vasaroff, jean Galeron and others of note.

--On the Stage--
Fanchon and Marco's Comic supplement "Idea"
--Featuring--

Trixis Friganza -- Grand Duchess of Comedy -- Dewey Barto and Geo. Mann, as Mutt and Jeff, O'Rourkes Duo, as Hans and Fritz, Mary Jane Lewis as Tillie the Toiler, and Spark Plug, The Skipper of Toonerville Trolley, Juggs, and Barney Google, and various other characters will be portrayed by well known stage folks.

The critics of several well known Los angeles newspaper voice their opinion in the following manner...

"Under the magic wand of Fanchon and Marco all the fun makers of the colored comic supplement appear to the delight of the spectators, the effects of the magnified comic page is enhanced by a background which simulates a gigantic page of the funny sheet and there are engles galore to keep laughter running without a stop." -- Florence Lawrence, L. A. Examiner.

"Fanchon and Marco have managed to crowd into a program this week enough to satisfy an audience twice." -- Eleanor Barnes, L. A. Times

With the Comic Supplement Idea, you can expect to find Gene Morgan at his funnise, merry songs and up-to-the-minute dances are a part of the treat that is in store for you during the days that this wonderful "Idea" plays the Boulevard Theater--and remember "Paris" is the screen attraction, also the always interesting International news Reel and a selected comedy. This is indeed a treat complete. Too wonderful to miss. Remember the dates.

"Wilderness Woman"
A First National Picture

ERATION OF HANDSOME YOUTH

"The Wilderness Woman," which starts Wednesday, August 19, at the Boulevard Theatre, is glowing testimory to the originality of that super-fine producer, Robert T. Kane.

"The Wilderness Woman" is a first rate picture, a highly diverting comedy-melodrama that is thrillingly sustaining. And more that that, it displays outstanding originality.

Wo, for instance, would have foreseen that Aileen Pringle, she of the stately Elinor Glyn roles and the clinging gowns, possessed ability as a comedienne? who would have thought of casting Lowell Sherman as a hero instead of the conventional heavy that he has done so many times? And who, again, would have put the walrus-moustached Chester Conklin in a role so closely related to Miss Pringle's as that of her father?

Who indeed? Well, the answer is, Robert Kane.

Miss Pringle and Mr. Conklin appear as uncouth Alaskans, new-rich with a million. They descend on New York in outlandish clothes, ignorant of the restrictions and conventions of modern civilization and possessed of a bear cub which strikes terror into the hearts of trainmen and bellboys, and who has as difficult a time in the great city as do his owners.

All of which is responsible for comedy of the most hilarious nature. But there is an amply sustaining vein of melodrama. Lowell Sherman as the hero and Henry Vibart and Robert Cain as the heavies are responsible for carrying this element of the picture, and they do it well.

The SAVAGE
Entered Beard Race and Copped First Prize with a False Crop

May McAvoy slipped a good joke across on Ben Lyon down in Florida recently while they were shooting exterior scenes for "The Savage," the new First National picture which is coming to the Boulevard, August.

You see, Ben had to grow a large sized beard for this picture, as he is the Savage. Tired of being the center of all eyes, Ben decided to have some company, so he offered a prize of fifty dollars for the member of the uit who could grow the longest beard before starting back for New York. the race was on, and Ben was not so conspicuous.

Came the judging day. A very tiny young man with a beard a foot in length walked up to Ben, Earl hudson and Directory Fred Newmeyer, the judges, to be measured. Ben let out ayell. The prize was handed to the young man forthwith and with no questions asked.

Then May removed her false beard. She had dressed lkie (sic) a man and sonned the beard to put on over on Ben. Ben objected when he saw the hoax, but Hudson and Newmeyer overruled him and the prize stayed as was.
