WHY THE THEATRE NEED NOT FEAR ITS HEW RIVAL [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
WHY THE THEATRE NEED NOT FEAR ITS NEW RIVAL. (By Edward Cecil, who contests the Cinema's claim to be regarded as one of the arts and ridi cules its pretensions to oust the Theatre). It is high time we pricked the Cinema bubble Having enjoyed- great financial prosperity, the Cinema now seeks to blossom into what is to be called the 'Super Cinema,' and the pur pose of the Super Cinema is to oust the Theatre. In other words, the Cinema, suf fering from swelled head, forgets its limitations; and, not content with the triumphs it has achieved; is determined to make a bid to se cure pride of place in the entertain ment world. Let me clear the ground by ad mitting the Cinema's ability to pro vide a good, cheap entertainment and also its adaptability for educa tional purposes. It is* particularly useful in illustrating travel lectures. Developed on these lines, the Cinema has a future profitable to its promoters and serviceable to the general public. But the Cinema to-day has great er ambit...
"HUMORESQUE" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
'HUMORESQUE' The liry: Gaston Glass. The Girl: Alma Rubens. A Paramount-Artcraft Royalty Masterpiece. A photoplay? Yes!. But more than a photoplay— the melody of life itself! It is a laugh on life, with a tear beneath; the soul of a people in a picture that un twists the chains tying the hidden heart of memory- It cries to hide its laughter; and laughs to hide its tears! She was there the night of his con cert — his Divinity, his inspiration. To-night he was the idol of thou sands. But last night, at home, he was just a plain mother's 'baby,' playing to her and the girl that he loved. And as the great crowd broke into rapturous applause, a pang crossed the girl's heart. For it heralded his departure. It meant 'good-bye ' to those wonderful even ings at home. And it might be for ever! He had played 'Humores- que' — that laugh on life with a tear behind it — and was gone. CrueJ Fate crashed on him; lost him the use of a limb. How could he many her now— his art gone — and a crip ple? B...

^ W/vtvi n tt HER FANCIES— ——^ WOmail =and HER FADf Fantasies of Fasmon As Seen \n Mel bourne and Sydney From out of a chorus of colour, clamorous -and subdued, a medley of . rich new stuffs, an assembly of modes highly individual and full oi definite character, whether based upon ideas from lands watered by tile Nile, from the Balkans or from East of Suez, some voices are more insistent and compelling than the rest, and undoubtedly must domin ajte the'season. A survey of the fas hion world in Melbourne and in Syd ney is of extraordinary interest, to— cause, whilst on many points there ?? is* the'- fullest agreement, on others exists the most entertaining diver sion. But, taking things by and large, it comes to. this:— Chantilly lade ts dyed and used with seree, tricotine or velvet.

Fundamental Fallacies in the Argument for Prohibition [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Fundamental fallacies in the Argument for Prohibition Prohibition is not based on rea son, and therefore will not stand the test of cold logic. The misguided ad vocates of this tyranny no matter how well meaning they may be, have nothjng to rely on in argument but an appeal to blind sentiment. Hor rible pictures of drunkenness .and misery are painted and shown as the rule rather than the exception Then Prohibition, is held out as the only cure for all these frightful evils. Testing the Question. It is proposed in this short article to dispassionately examine the only arguments on which Prohibition could possibly be expected to stand, and to see whether it will hold or break down, if the sale and con sumption of liquor is to be prohibit ed, the following must be proved: — (1) That alcohol is a Jiecessary evil in itself, or in its erect,, or in both; (2) That it is always physically injurious, or at least, never bene ficial ; (3) That the State has the right to invade hearth and home ...
Those Restful "Twiddly-Bits" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Those Restful 'TwicUlly-Bits' Is the greatest craze of the twen tieth century on the wane? Is the dance fever languishing? Rather like, 'Will the war end by Christ mas?' used to be, that question of the moment, isn't it? Lots and lots of special and exclusive information simply thrown at you all around, and only trouble's as before — the answer's different every time! \ Not much sign, anyway, so tar as can be seen of the sujjden sad de mise of what someone calls the most marvellous boom of these marvel- t lously booming times, nor of its even making a start on the drear and downward path to slow decay either, Looks just a little bit like it, per haps, just now and. again, when you find the floor that was packed well nigh to bursting point last week so thinned out this, that you can pos.' tively do spins and things without steering almost, and all those rest ful twiddly bits without being barg ed into by infuriated mustgetahead at-any-pricers, with looks as set as icebergs, and heels...
The Love Singer (Slang has been declared to be merely a form of poetry.) [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
Tke Love Singer (Slang has been declared to be merely a. form of poetry.) Dear Jaae, since the day that 1 met you I hava joyously suffered the throes Of a love tnat can never forget you, Or even describe you in prose. All commonplace forms of expres sion To me are inadequate quite, But I murmur all day in poetical way. 'Ain't Jennie a bit of all right?' Your fancy 1 struggle to capture With many a gem of this sort; Did you notice my lyrical rapture Last ni^ht. when I called you 'old sport*'? Do you cheiish the foi:d recollection Of how I am frequently heard To remark (or exclaim) when men mention your name 'Say, kid. isn't Tennie some bird?' I might seek a mode of revealing My fenrent affection in rhyme, But, spite of mv amorous feeling, Beloved, I haven't the time. No deftly-brought sonnet I bring you. The fruit of my passionate moods, But it's simpler for ree to ejaculate My Jennie's the absolute goods.* — Theta.
A Merciless Study [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 24 April 1921
A Merciless Study The idea that a carte blanche purse is essential must be. eliminated- once and for all: the only real road to success is thoughtful, frank, and merciless study of oneself at the most truthful of all mediums, the mirror. It is before this autocrat that the most becoming lines and colours may be learnt, as well as the st}rles that will most advanta geously express the personality. It is an old axiom that the accessories of the toilette are more important than the frock itself. The clever woman studies all women in order that she may learn where they fan ^nd avoid their frauds. Something that .spells ruin to them may be come a treasure to her; it is all a matter of . personality. All white hats are fashionable if they become th« wwi*««* but there is a lanje 'if' to be considered be fore choosing- head-gear of this de scription. Of course, a decorative veil goes a long way to soften the effect, but all white next the face is safer left to the young and beauti ful. Grey...
