"ROBIN HOOD" TELLS HISTORY Fairbanks As Producer [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
"ROBIN HOOD" TELLS HISTORY : Fairbanks As Producer Taking as his basis English history at the time of Richard Coeur De Lion and weaving into the main story the exploits of Robin Hood, Douglas Fair banks has produced a .picture that places him among the greatest pro ducers in America. Spectacular in its general -aspect and showing a wealth ,f detail, it makes the histotry of those days live before the eyes of the modern audience and goes to-show how great an educational value the screen can possess when used properly. There are three main settings. There is the castle, Robin Hood's headquar ters in Sherwood Forest, and the camp of the Crusaders. Much as we may have read of thosestirring days in Eng lish history, no pen can picture the scenes as they really were, and we have but the vaguest notion of that period of England's existence. In the picture, however, every detail is shown, and you gain for the first time an im lression of the vastness of the great castles that were placed th...
Wondergraph [Newspaper Article] — News — 2 August 1923
Wondergraph W|ith its scenes laid in the Argentine, "MIy American Wife" is attracting con siderable attention at the Wondergraph. MIiss Swanson is seen as a beautiful .Kentucky belle whose father is owner of a racid~ stable. The story is qcuite dramatic, and the views of the Argen tine, where the scenes are laid, are most colorful. Antonio Moreno ably portrays the role of a wealthy young politician of Euenos Aires. The pic ture is filled with rapid-fire action, and is wholly engrossing, the love element being strong and unusually appealing. Joseph Sickward, Walter Long, and 'Edythe Chapman are included in the *fine supporting cast of players. A feature of this photoplay is the lavish creations worn by Miss Swanson, who went to Paris specially to select these gowns for the picture. A story denouncing the sort of punishment practised in some gaols forms the in tensely dramatic and absorbing thread of the second feature adapted from one of the Jack Boyle stories and en titled "Boston B...

Wheat and Flour Shipments Exrorts of wheat from South Australia for1 the month of .une totalled 1.086,740 bushels,. cn3parcd with 2,219,517 bushels for May. Although the shlipmnents show a considerable increase in comparison withl the figures for the corresponding month last year, the fact renains that the nmovem(-at of wheat stocks &lt;'declidedly slow. The recent slump in the mnarket has caused a lull in buying opera tons, and it is estimated that there is still nn exportable surplus of more than 6.000.000 Bus~hels of wheat unsold in this State. Un less this is cleared hefore the next harvest the outlook is rather unpromising. Flour to the extent of 1.741 tons, valued at £41.009, was ceporled during Jlune.
