tures of " three desperately poor young
! men who pretend that one of them
jhas been married and send out fake
invitations in order to get the much
needed wedding presents. The com
' plications result from the unexpected
j appearance of a young iauy who is
'identified' with the name and address
Jon the wedding announcements. Miss
Tully's ' farce abounds in unusually
! amusing comedy situations, and crisp
j comedy tines, and is splendidly act
fed by the original New York Com
pany, including Lillian uiaire, oeri
Leigh, May Wallace, James Hester,
Edward Butler, Louise Sanford, Don
ald MacLeod, Gertrude Mann, -Frank

j "Uaier Handicap" is another book
,'play. , Its author, Jackson Gregory,
'has demonstrated that he know;? how
j to hold the attention, and in the pho-jto-drama
"made from the novel, Har
jold Lockwood and Fred Balshofer, who
,has adapted it show their ability to
! take that story sand put it on the
j screen in terms of good, red-blooded
j action. '
! "Under Handicap" is a story of New
York and the desert, principally the
'desert. It shows the workings of a
j gigantic reclamation project, the prob-
jlem of wresting great gifts from na
jture. Its greatest lesson is perhaps
I to win from nature requires grit and
j strength, both moral and physical. It
lis partly because Lockwood plays are.
jso clean that the public has learned
I to trust them and Lockwood and to
jwant more of them.
