"Audrey" on the Screen

Pauline Frederick the Heroine of Miss Johnston's Story.

The second of Mary Johnston's works to reach the screen in a few weeks was shown yesterday at the Strand. It was a picture version of "Audrey," following closely on the heels of "To Have and to Hold," projected on the same screen recently.

Pauline Frederick was the Audrey of the film, and her opulent beauty stands the test of a makeup not calculated to enhance it. She is the orphan of the story who becomes a rich man's ward for a brief time before she is turned over to a couple who appropriate the money intended for her use and keep her in rags. So it is in the costume of the unfortunate founding that she races through four reels--a plain skirt and waist, hair hanging about her shoulders, and--bare feet! Less brilliant beauty than Miss Frederick's would be smothered by such a handicap, but hers shines brightly through, and in every appearance she is a lovely apparition.

Later on, when her guardian has returned from England and brought her the gowns that should have been hers through all the reels Miss Frederick comes into her own. In the matter of pictorial beauty "Audrey" is unusually excellent. Apparently Florida, with its rich foliage, has supplied the background, and in the swift unreeling scenes are many of rare beauty.

Margarete Christians, who is a daughter of Rudolf Christians, director of the Irving Place Theatre, is a newcomer in movieland, who makes a pleasing impression in "Audrey." Patrons of the German playhouse are well acquainted with the beauty and charm of this young actress, and none of it eludes the lens. Also she seems to understand the new medium she has adopted.
