"The Fighting Coward,'" which was adapted to the screen by Walter Woods from a recent stage plav, "Magnolia," by Booth Tarkington, deals with the days before the Civil War in the South. Ernest Torrence, Mary Astor, Noah Beery, Phyllis Haver and Cullen Landis are the featured players. f . This great picture will be, shown nt.the new Palace Theatre, December 22hd and 23rd.

Aileen Pringle, who comes to the i new Palace Theatre next week in a > picturization of Elinor Glyn's love story, "His Hour" has the rare distinction of becoming a succe= c through first being a failure. Several years -ago, the director, b'dney Franklin, made a test picture of her an,d after viewing it, to!d her. she could never make ;i succes sofl screen acting, due to the fact that she photographed so badly. She then appeared on the stage with George Arliss in "The Green Goddess" .and again tried pictures, first playing a bit part and then a larger role. Finally, she wa.s brought to the attention of Elinor Glyn, then about to cast "Three Weeks" and she made such a strong impression { upon the authoress, that she was immediately engaged for the role of the Queen. Always she has had to battle with the thought that she was destined to be a : failure, and it has only been since the making of the first Glyn picture that she has had confidence m herself. "I think djscouragemeiit is the cruelest thing" in the world," say-< Miss Pringle. "It is the greatest of handicaps, and if a person has real ability it is very apt to kill the flame of ambition.
