WE WANT WHAT WE WANT-SO THERE

SEVERAL foreign directors and a few of the native-born are wasting considerable talent in an effort to sophisticate the American motion-picture public. Of which we are a part. They feel that the movie public is unfortunate in its taste ; that a demand for happy end- ings and pure heroines is a sort of malady that can be overcome by patient and persistent effort.

The Swedes think that we ought to like gloomy endings, where everybody jumps in the lake except the heroine's illegitimate daughter : and she starves to death.

The Russians think that our failure to cry for tales of black despair is an infirmity ; while the Austrians and the Germans are politely incredulous that any audience could bother about a story wherein everybody loves the wife of his bosom; and the true lovers are happy forever afterward. "Very sweet and domestic." they say, "but wherein is the drama?"

All of these gentlemen of genius are laying the seed for many future heartaches. As the old Arkansas farmer said. "It caint be did."

The good horse sense of the situation is this : when baking pies to sell in a bakery, pick out the kind of pie that the largest number of people like.

By its very nature, the motion-picture industry is bound by a law of general averages. The movies have, by very long odds, the most enormous audience that ever witnessed any form of enter- tainment since the world began.

Remember this: that no one book, with the possible exception of the Bible, was ever read by as many people as go to the movies every night. It must inevitably be the aim of the producer to find the artistic area which is common ground for all these people. This is especially true as regards moral standards and ethical vantage-points.

From these accepted standards as a base, they can soar on to whatever artistic flights they wish.

But unless or until the American public changes materially, it is hopeless to ask it to accept cynicism or sophistication.

Charlie Chaplin's A Woman of Paris, and Ernst Lubitsch's The Marriage Circle were two of the most superbly artistic pictures ever made. Yet they have been only moderately successful. This on account of the sentiments expressed and cynical view-point.

The public will stand for and patronize bathing-girl comedies, and even google at much that is risque in flapper drama; but the moral must emerge triumphant at the end. Virtue must end the tale, with its foot upon the dragon's neck.

Perhaps we are still primitive and crude and Puritanic— even Babbittical. But anyhow, "that's the way we are, Mabel." If you are going to sell us dramas, that's the kind of dramas we are going to buy.

The foreign director seeking our national pube would do better to consult Harold Bell Wright and Gene Stratton Porter and other admitted traffickers in naivete, rather than the young sophisti- cates who represent a superior few who do not go much to the movies.

Only Elinor Qlyn Would Dare

to Write a Book Like This!

Elinor Glyn, author of "Three Weeks," has written a sensa- tional novel called "The Price of Things." This book will amaze all America ! Thousands of people will say it is not fit to be read. Small-minded critics will claim that Elinor Glyn should not have dared touch such a breath-taking subject that she has handled a delicate topic with too much frankness. But we want you to read the book before passing an opinion. This you can do at our risk— without advancing a penny!

"The Price of Things" is one of the most daring books ever written !

"The Price of Things" is one of the most sensational books ever written !

"The Price of Things" will be one of the most fiercely criticized books ever writ- ten—!

Warning !

BUT we don't ask you to take our word for all this. Simply send us your name and we'll send you the book. Go over it to your heart's content read it from cover to cover let it thrill you as you have never been thrilled before— then, if you don't say it is every- thing we claim and a lot more! simply mail it back and it won't cost you a penny. Isn't that fair?

YOU'VE heard of Elinor Glyn- every- one has. She is unquestionably the most audacious author in the world. Her last great success, "The Philosophy of Love," was said to be the most daring book ever written. Her sensational novel, "Three Weeks," shocked the whole world a few years ago. But "The Price of Things" is far more daring than "The Philosophy of Love" and much more sensational than "Three Weeks." Need more be said?

After you have read "The Price of Things" you will understand why Elinor Glyn is called the most daring writer in the world. You will see that she is the only great living author who dares reveal the naked truth about love and passion in defiance of silly convention and false hypocrisy. Madame Glyn never minces words she always calls a spade a spade she doesn't care a snap of her fingers what hypocritical people think. And it is just this admirable quality in her writing this fearless frankness, utter candor, and resolute daring which makes her the most popular writer of today!

An Uncensored Story of Love and Passion

THE books of most French and English novelists are "toned down" when pub- lished in America. Not so with "The Price of Things." This book comes to you ex- actly in the form in which Elinor Glyn first wrote it nothing has been taken out the book has not been censored everything is there!

Here is a book that will open your eyes! Each succeeding chapter grows more daring. From the Magic Pen of Elinor Glyn flows a throbbing tale of audacious characters startling incidents, sensational situations,

So realistic is the charm, the fire, and the passion of this fiercely-sweet romance, that the hot breath of the hero seems to fan your face. Your blood races madly at the un- conditional surrender of the delicious heroine. You feel her soft arms about your neck.

You kiss her madly and seem to draw her

very soul through her lips!

And then comes the big scene! Midnight has struck and the heroine, sleeping peace- fully, dreams of her husband The

This Book Will Shock Some People!

NARROW-MFNDED people will be shocked at "The Price of Things!" They will say it ought to be suppressed— that it is not fit to be read. But this is not true. It is true that Madame Glyn handles a delicate topic with amazing frank- ness, and allows herself almost unlimited freedom in writing this burning story of love and passion. Still the story is so skillfully written that it can safely be read by any grown-up man or woman who is not afraid of the truth. Furthermore, Madame Glyn does not care what small-minded people say. And she doesn't write to please men and women with childish ideas and prudish sen- timents. She always calls things by their right names whatever phase of life she writes of, she reveals the naked truth. And in "The Price of Things" she writes with amazing candor and frank daring of the things she knows best- the greatest things in life Love and Passion!
