'GLORIA'S ROMANCE' SHOWN.; Billie Burke, the Star of a New Movie Serial at Globe Theatre. Published: May 23, 1916.

An interesting experiment was begun last night at the Globe Theatre with the first exhibition of the first chapters of a new movie serial, entitled "Gloria's Romance," with Billie Burke as the star. This installment of the story will be kept on the Globe screen for two weeks, and then other chapters will follow. The movie serial idea is not new, but heretofore they have always been shown in regular picture theatres and not offered as an attraction in a regular playhouse.

Mr. and Mrs. Rupert Hughes are the authors of the story which Miss Burke has acted for the screen. The role they have provided for her is that of a young hoyden, whose enthusiasm for excitement gets her into all kinds of scrapes. In the first two chapters she has a lively enough time to satisfy even her adventurous nature. Gloria is spending the season with her crabbed father at Palm Beach, when one night she gets up out of bed and goes to the veranda of the hotel to watch the older folks dance within. Here the idea of going for a joy ride in her brother's car seizes her, and she jumps in and opens the throttle.

A few minutes later she is floundering in the surf, whither the car has flung itself when the steering post broke. From the beach to the Everglades with their interesting denizens of alligators, crocodiles, and Seminoles is but a few steps, and soon Gloria is having adventures with the wild animals and humans of the glades. She is just about to be slaughtered by an amorous Seminole when her brother and the handsome young villain of the story arrive simultaneously in true movie fashion, after having traversed separate routes in search of her.

The next release will no doubt reveal what happens to the wicked young man who claims all the credit for the rescue when the party returns to civilization.

Miss Burke proved herself a good screen subject in her first picture several months ago. She is winsome and girlish-looking, and when she dons the clothes of a boy she is altogether cunning. She does not look as young as her short frocks are intended to make her, and she would be more of a vision if her frocks were longer, but one should not demand everything. A company of players from the legitimate stage assisted Miss Burke, which was a relief, among them Henry Kolker, David Powell, William Roselle, Frank Belcher, William T. Carleton, and Jule Power. Jerome Kern, master of insinuating melody, has composed a score for the serial, and last night he conducted the orchestra.

Billie Burke was paid $150,000 to do this serial and it was also Richard Barthelmess's film debut. Tragically, Gloria's Romance now remains a lost silent film.
