RITCHEY LITHO. CORR

JAMES V. RITC«EY. Pres. DANIEL PETIGOR, Vioe-Prej.

THE GREATEST ORGANIZATION OF POSTER ARTISTE AND POSTER PRINTERS IN THE WORLD

TelepKorxe CKelseet 8388 - 406 west 3ist. Street. - New York.

To the Industry in general:

The primary the essential object of everybody connected with the motion pictures industry is to keep the auditorium full!

We are doing it in the only way it can be done: By producing posters that are so powerful, so strong and so convincing that the passing public is literally forced Fo "enter the theatre that has them on display. To get the maximum box-office receipts, RITCHEY posters must be used! No matter how much time, thought and money is expended upon a program, it is all wasted if mediocre posters are used, for the public judge a show by the posters that advertise it!

The RITCHEY LITHO. CORP. is the greatest organi- zation of poster artists and poster printers in the world! Our poster advertising specialists are the only ones who can make the kind of posters that pack audi- toriums. All the great poster artists of the country are in our organization. These are the men who are re- sponsible for every great poster that has appeared upon the boards in the last twenty years.

Great posters are inevitably RITCHEY posters!

"Ob don't miss it-

So wrote Miss Harriet Underhill, in the New York Tribune, after she had seen "BROKEN BLOSSOMS." And so have countless thousands said after her.

The appreciation of things beautiful varies; no great work has ever found universal praise; even the Bible has its defamers but the whole world of art recognizes that the greatest screen achievement, the supreme contribution to cinema progress, is "BROKEN BLOSSOMS."

And every theatre that seeks to foster the best traditions of the motion picture, every house that is growing with the- art of the film, must number cunong its presentations

WHEREVER motion pictures are shown, there the name of R. A. Walsh is known ! "Regeneration" was his. And "Carmen," "Blue Blood and Red," "The Silent Lie," "The Serpent," "Evangeline" and "The Honor System," too! Milestone after milestone of achievement marks the long trail of successes this pioneer director has blazed I

He was a member of the old Biograph family. He trekked across the Continent with the first Griffith caravan. He sought locations in the Rockies, on the great Western plains, through New England, in the Seminoles, writing, direct' ing and editing romances that have entertained millions throughout the world.

And now at thirty^three, a veteran when most men begin work he comes into his own severs all other ties and joins Mayflower PhotO' play Corporation to make R. A. Walsh Productions I

A Mayflower achievement I A Realart triumph!

REALART PICTURES 469 Fifth Avenue

CORPORATION

New York City

R. A. Walsh is to make super-features exclu' siveiy. And when Realart says super-features it means just this. Mr. Walsh is to be provided with the biggest stories available, and will be unhampered by financial or time restrictions or the whims of film editors. He will choose his own stories, do the caLSting, direct his productions to meet his own ideas, and personally cut, edit and title all of his film.

This is Realart production policy to make pictures in the studio, rather than in the counting room. It is Mayflower policy. It is the policy that has made possible Mayflower's partnership with some of the world's greatest directors. It is a successful policy as witness "Soldiers of Fortune" and "The Miracle Man."

In the past, R. A. Walsh pictures frequently have bulged the lid of the box oflice cash box. Mr. Walsh now promises to rip it ofl^ altogether. He will be backed to the limit in production by Mayflower faith and Mayflower cash. Realart expects from him one of the greatest series of productions ever ofl^ered to exhibitors.

Create Happy Hours

HESE are your stars— not ours.

They are stars because their talent won your favor.

No one can successfully force stars upon you. We simply listen to the voice of public demand, and give you your own favorites.

And so SELZNICK PICTURES have opened the door of opportunity for many a youthful genius.

They say SELZNICK stars become famous over night. This is true only because the SELZNICK organiza- tion is close to the public, quick to recognize its wishes, and thorough in carrying them out.

By discovering your favorites and placing them in worthy productions we arrive at the secret which makes SELZNICK PICTURES create happy hours.

VARIETY says: For once at any rate we agree with the producer and distributor claims for a picture. "The Lord Loves the Irish" is the best of all the J. Warren Kerrigan pictures. It has a smashing finale that will tempt 'any exhibitor to tear the necessary amount of rental from his bank-roll. And also: ably directed and photographed.

THE IRISH

MOTION PICTURE NEWS says: A clever Monte Katterjohn comedy-drama is "The Lord Loves the Irish." It touches ail the elements of dramatic fare with flashes of melodrama and notes of pathos and sentiment. Kerrigan looks his old self again in this picture.

SAYS:

'"The Lone Wolf's Daughter' is yithout doubt a big picture. It has all the evidence of a special and surely must have cost auite a bit to produce. Throughout there is considerable display of wealth and it contains some of fhe best performances on the part of the players seen in some time.

"Yon can book this and feel safe from a box-ofiSce angle for it is that kind of an attraction. It should make money and will probably stand a long run, profiting by word-of-mouth advertising. Use the name of the star liberally in connection with your announcements. There are numerous possibilities for financial return in this production and you should get your share.

"Louis Joseph Vance has written a real mystery story with plenty of secret passages, sliding doors and other intricate things. From a production standpoint "The Lone Wolt's Daughter has been picturized in a big way lavish sets, a magnificent display of wealth in furnishings and enougli of the spectacular to create a dramatic climax There is enough interest and action alone in the short pro- logue for a complete picture in itself.

"There is swift action here and the spectacular finale, a fireworks up a dramatic climax preceding the happy ending. You can safely make promises f<5r this production."

'The Midnight Bride"

From the Magazine Story

"The Marriage of Little Jeanne Sterling"

By Charles Stokes Wayne Directed hy William J. Humphrey

Impulsive, trusting, but unsophis- ticated Jeanne Sterling is one of the most lovable characters seen on the screen.

Her visit to New York, her un- expected midnight marriage and the harrowing events that followed make an unusual story.

A splendid Vitagraph picture, done in a splendid way.

A Film Magazine—A Famil}? FaA)orite

TKere is a motion picture tKat disarms criticism. It is not drama; it is not a comed}?; it is not a ne\\?s film.

^s^o one can sa}) "I didn't like tKe story in tKat picture;" nor can an3)one say "I didn't like tKe star."

It Kas no star nor storj); it needs neitKer tKe one nor tKe otKer.

It is a film magazine tKe PatKe Review.

Slox*? Motion Photograph}) has made a sensation; you yourself have been impressed with the pictures of the galloping horse, moving at a snail's pace, e\)er9 muscle, every movement clearly revealed; v^ith the record- breaking sprinter v?ho seems to sv?im across the tape, and other such amazing and instructive things.

Pathe first presented SIomO Motion Photography, and you'll find it in the Pathe Review.

Pathecolor is a revelation in beauty. Films in Pathecolor show the scenic loveliness of the earth's wonder spots, in natural colors. Pathecolor pictures are in each number of the Pathe Review.

In Pathe Review are also charming and instructive nature pictures, taken by well known naturalists; pictures revealing the secrets of science; pictures making clear the arts; and others shov?ing ancient, mediaeval and modern dances interpreted by some of the most famous dancers of the v?orld, staged by Julian Ollendorf.
