Miss Clayton at Her Best

Did you read “The Ladder of Lies,” written by Harrold Vickers which appeared in “Snappy Stories” magazine some time ago?

This delightful story has been transferred to the screen with charming Ethel Clayton in the starring role. Miss Clayton is at her best in this production, which will be shown at the Liberty theatre last times tonight!


Jerome K. Jerome, Author

To those who know literature and drama, Jerome K. Jerome needs no introduction.

“Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow,” is a collection of humorous essays that has pleased thousands. “The Passing of the Third Floor Back,” is a drama made immortal by the deathless acting of Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson.

“Miss Hobbs” proved one of Mr. Jerome’s greatest successes. On Broadway it was the comedy triumph of its period. It has a lilting comedy touch that intrigues the laugh-wells of the most incurable grouch, and will present Wanda Hawley in her first independent production at the Rialto theatre tomorrow.
