ORIENTAL THRILLER AT THE PAGE TODAY
Tully Marshall gives a very convincing and thrilling delineation of the wily, implacable Chinese half-breed John Soy in "The Sable Lorcha," which opened at the Page Theater today.
This Fine Arts film play is adapted from the powerful novel of Horace Hazeltine and represents the high degree of realism attained by the Triangle people in dealing with the life and ways of an alien race.
Thomas Jefferson, skillful actor in his own right and by his inheritance from his renowned father, has the double roles of the two Cameron brothers, Robert and Donald, to play, and he is equally at home as the lovable man of means and as the derelict.
Everyone knows Joseph Jefferson and his "Rip Van Winkle." For a generation the beloved actor played it from coast to coast, and when he died one of his sons, Thomas Jefferson, took the part and maintained the traditions established by his parent.
Ford Sterling appears for the first time on the Triangle program in a laugh-thriller called "His Father's Footsteps." Ford Sterling's comic facial expressions and bodily contortions will be seen at their best in the new Triangle play at the Page Theater tonight.
