HERE IS THE STRAND CAMERACAR.

Perhaps you have seen the car being driven around the city and perhaps you have walked in front of the camera when the Strand cameraman was taking a moving picture. If you have not had the above experience there is a thrill in store for you. For as soon as the cameraman has obtained several hundred feet of interesting picture (sic) he rushes the film to a laboratory where it is developed and sent to the Strand for the next day's performances. Then those who have stood or walked in front of the camera the day before can see themselves as moving picture subjects on the screen at the Strand. Not every one can "register." Have you tried it? Watch for the Strand Cameracar!


Strand Theatre program article on Vivian Martin

VIVIAN MARTIN A BORN ARTIST

A telegram from the late Charles Frohman received by little Vivian Martin while reciting a piece of Sunday School marked the beginning of this popular girl's career. That is to say, the telegram was sent to Vivian's mother, who rushed to Sunday School to take her little daughter on a sudden journey which necessitated quick action. The famous manager had seen Vivian in several amateur school plays and at his first opportunity, sent for her to become a member of his roster.

In the title role of "Peter Pan" and supported by an all-children cast, Miss Martin met with instantaneous success and played the role before crowded houses for an entire season. Her success in "Peter Pan" made her much sought after by managers desiring a juvenile artist. Bother her mother and father were members of the profession, so it was not at all extraordinary that the child should gain immediate prominence behind the footlights.

Miss Martin's first appearance in an ingénue part was in Charles Frohman's "Father and the Boys" with William H. Crane. Next in "The Spendthrift" with Fred Thompson she scored individual honors. This play was the last in which her mother appeared in the cast with her as had been the case in such popular hits as "Officer 666," "Stop Thief," "The Marriage Game" and "The High Cost of Living", the actress came into particular prominence among metropolitan theatre-goers. It was while with the last mentioned play that Miss Martin received an attractive offer to star in motion pictures which she accepted. Her winsome personality and pretty petite manners proved her a welcome asset to the screen with the result that the screen has claimed her ever since. At the Oliver Morosco Photoplay Company and Pallas Pictures studios in Los Angeles the girl-star is now appearing in what will undoubtedly prove her greatest work before the motion picture camera.

Increased quality in motion pictures made finer theatres possible. Finer theatres and better motion pictures brought a higher class of patronage. The higher class of patronage made possible a still higher grade of theatres and motion pictures.

That is why you go to the Strand to see Paramount Pictures.

Next Week's Feature

Patrons of the Strand Theatre are to have the opportunity of seeing one of Broadway's last season's stage successes as a screen drama. Edgar Selwyn's clever play of American life, "Rolling Stones," has been adapted for the screen and the Famous Players Film Company will present it at the Strand Theatre the week of August 20th on the Paramount program. Featured in the film version are two favorites, Owen Moore and Marguerite Courtot.

Owen Moore is Dave, of the moving stone variety and Marguerite Courtot is the - well, not the moss, but the instrument of his sudden redemption from the rolling. She at least stops that particular stone from rolling any further down hill. Of course he is only a rolling stone in the sense that he has not yet found himself, for the boy is not in the least vicious at heart and when he sees this delightful little girl Norma she at once arouses all that is best in him.

"Rolling Stones," by the way, marks the first appearance of pretty little Marguerite Courtot in a Famous Players production, as she was one of the first stars engaged after the announcement of the formation of the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. She is unquestionably one of the most popular ingénues on the screen and has been a shining screen light for the last four years. The play marks Owen Moore's second stellar role for the Famous Players since rejoining that company.

"Rolling Stones" was selected as an especially adaptable play because there is so much action in the story and because the many complications of the plot are so readily evolved on the screen. Nor is it by any means devoid of thrills in its adaptation. In one of the early scenes Mr. Moore is found dangling by one hand from the top of a bridge, threatening to "end it all" by letting go; then there are near hold-ups, bank robberies, and numerous adventures with a trunk that is weirdly stocked with feminine and male attire.

When the play was produced on the stage it was declared by the metropolitan critics to be one of the most delightful combinations of laughs and thrills which had been seen for many a season. Inits motion picture form it is even more amusing and thrilling. Among those who appear in support of the stars are Denman Maley, Alan Hale and Ida Fitzhugh.
