Vol. 1 St. LOUIS, MO., MAY 23, 1925 No. 34
AT LAST!! ST. LOUIS’ PREMIER SHOWING OF D.W. GRIFFITH’S "AMERICA’" NEXT WEEK
CAST OF OVER 30,000 INCLUDES MANY SCREEN AND STAGE NOTABLES.
ST. LOUIS PREMIER
The romance of one hundred and ten million people - that is the story of "America," which many critics now declare greater than Mr. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation." The mighty picture, which so accurately relates the terrible struggles and privations suffered by our fore-father in their fight for liberty, carries a powerful love theme, the first love of the dutiful daughter of a tory aristocrat and an aide to our great General Washington. The historical sequences throughout have been pronounced by noted historians over the entire world, to be the most accurate ever produced. Historical societies all over the country were consulted. Army records were placed at the disposal of Mr. Griffith; and throught the Secretary of War, the United States Army was used in a number of scenes, dressed in Continentals and the flaring red of the British Army. Most of the scenes were actually photographed upon the historical and hallowed ground where one hundred and fifty years ago, these precise events took place, and lead to the foundation of the greatest nation the world has ever known. This masterpiece, like all of Mr. Griffith's productions, has a cast of over thirty thousand, the principals of which, were most carefully considered from all angles, rather than from the standpoint of name alone. Every character is well cast so much so that one great critic has said that it seemed as if they were all "poured into their parts."

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN
Alice Terry, now playing opposite Lewis Stone in
"Confessions of a Queen," adapted from Alphonse Daudet's story, "Kings in
Exile," recently overheard this one.
"THE SPORTING VENUS"
Among the brilliant photoplay productions booked for early showing at Loew's State is "The Sporting Venus" featuring Blanche Sweet, Lew Cody and Ronald Colman as principals.
The last sequence filmed by Marshall Neilan of his Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production of "The Sporting Venus" was an elaborate ball at the Court of St. James. Actors wearing the dress and uniforms of every nation, appeared as atmosphere in these scenes. Blanche Sweet, Lew Cody and Roland Colman were the principals.
Colman is playing the role of a Scottish nobleman in the Neilan production, which is appropriate enough since the actor is a native of the land of the heather. In the scenes that have Colman on his Scottish estate, Neilan forces him into the garb of kilts.

LEWIS STONE AND ALICE TERRY IN "CONFESSIONS OF A QUEEN"
PROLOGUE TO D. W. GRIFFITH'S "AMERICA"A special musical atmospherical prologue to "America" has been arranged for next week featuring several local singers of note. Elaborate stage setting in three scenes, proclaim the patriotic spirit in song as must have been felt by the immortal "Minute Men," the quiet love felt during the birth of our flag, and the joyous song expressed by the first ringing of the famous Liberty Bell. As the scenes shift, the three musical expressions so dear to the hearts of all of us, are softly accompanied by Don Albert's popular Symphony Orchestra.
THE COOLEST SPOT IN TOWN
LEWIS STONE'S NEWEST ROLE THAT OF A GOOD-BAD KING
The King in "Confessions of a Queen," the Victor Seastrom production which will be shown soon at this theatre, is in a quandry (sic). The influence of good is beckoning him on one side in the form of his Queen, a beautiful regal woman of the cold type, while that of evil, coaxes him on the other in the form of the vivacious Sephora, s woman of the world. A much stringer willed man that King Christian would have paused – not knowing which one to follow.
The King is delightfully played in the Seastrom production by Lewis Stone. The Queen Fredericks is depicted by Alice Terry, and the alluring Sephora by Helena d'Algy.
John Bowers plays the important role of Price Alexet and joseph Dowling and Eugenie Besserer are also seen in the production.
Agnes Christine Johnston and Victor Seastrom adapted the story from "Kings in Exile," by Alphonse Daudet and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer are presenting it
