Mr. T. M. Hodges Will Not Renew Lease of Richmond Theatre.—Confines Attentions to the National After Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
Mr. T. M. Hodges Will Not Renew Lease of Richmond Theatre. Confines Attentions to the Nation al After Thursday. Mr. T. M. Hodges' lease of the Richmond Theatre, Bridge-road, cor ner of Gleadell-street, expires on February 28, and he does not intend to renew it. In future his attention will be directed solely to the control of the National Theatre, at the top of the hill. The success of this theatre has grown steadily, and it now demands all the attention of the oroprietor. The popularity of the National is well deserved, for the bills have always consisted of the best and cleanest films obtainable. The Hodges standard is a high one, and he has lived up to It at the Richmond Theatre, which screened better pictures during his regime than it had ever previously known. However, the expenses of such high class productions are heavy, and the audiences do not warrant a continu ance. So Mr. Hodges will in future .confine his operations to the com fortable and roomy National. Good right up t...

Requests Bring Revival of My Old Dutch at the National.—Clever Company in Crisp Comedy on Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
Requests Bring Revival of My Old Dutch at the National.--Clever Company in Crisp Comedy on Thursday. In response to numerous requests Mr. T. M. Hodges has decided to revive My Old Dutch at the National Theatre on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next. This film has pre viously been shown at Hodges' thea tres, but later in its season the copy was destroyed by fire. A new print has now been. released, and Mr. Hodges was so much struck by the Dicture and has received so many in ouiries from patrons as to a re screening that he had seized the op portunity offered by its new release. The coster epic has a strain of real human sympathy ruitning through it which lifts it right out of the ruck. Another big attraction will be Gail Kane in a five-reel Brady-World film, The Scarlet Oath. It is a gra phic story of Nihilism with a thrill in every foot. The supporting pro gramme is up to standard. The Smugglers, Thursday's star, is one of those rare films which please and satisfy in every way. The s...
THE XMAS BILLY. HOW IT WAS APPRECIATED. SOLDIER'S LETTER TO RICHMOND GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
THE XMAS BILLY. HOW IT WAS APPRECIATED. SOLDIER'S LETTER TO RICHMOND GIRL. Miss Dorothy Tietgens, of 45 Cre- morne-street, is one of the many Rich- mond young women who packed and forwarded a Christmas billy to sol diers on active service. This is the letter she received back this week: "Sinai Peninsula, Dear Miss Tiet gens,-It is with great pleasure that I have to acknowledge the receipt of your billy, which was handed to me six days ago. We who are at the front cannot thank the women of Austra lia enough for the very great kindness and thoughts that they have given us who are striving to do our country's duty. I would, however, much prefer to lay down my life as a soldier than to remain in Australia a coward and let someone else do my bit. I am sure you cannot realise how very much we all appreciate these gifts which have been sent along to us. We are very well cared for so far as the army is concerned, but I can assure you it becomes monotonous, day after clay, without any change...
MANLY "AIR." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
- MANLY "AIR." I'm not going to weary you with any platitudinous vaporings regarding Syd ney's first and foremost beach; simply for the information of all who have never seen Manly I will briefly state that the picturesque town has two beaches, THE beach on the ocean, and another on the Harbor; the strip of Australia that lies between culmin ates in whale-like shape, and is known as the North Head. The mythical "little boy from Manly," so loved by Australian cartoonists, as he stands right out on the edge of the precipi tous headland on a bright day, could, if the horizon did not come so close, by looking due east, see exactly what the people in Auckland, New Zealand, were doing. Also, if the unlimited re sources of Australia did not bulge the country to such an extent between Sydney and Brisbane, he would be able to see just where the Commonwealth Government stopped short in the building of developmental railways in that wonderful country outside Port Moresby. In fact, if he were n...

A Churchyard Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
A Churchyard Ghost. A plan was formed to scare a cer tain Tim Casey on his return from market by night past the churchyard. As he passed, the usual white face, white sheet, and lantern of the con ventional ghost were submitted to his gaze, with the customary howls. Tim, however, simply looked fixedly at the apparition for a moment, and remarked: "Arrah, now, and is it a general resurrection, or are ye just taking a walk by yerself?"
MATCH-MAKERS, BE [?]CTFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
MATCH-NIAKERS, BE T4CTFUL There are comparatively few people, men or women, who do not take a more oi less interest in the love af fairs of their neighbors. Wherefore it is only natural that match-making should possess an ir resistable attraction for most women and for many men. Old people would like to see the young friends in whose welfare they feel a warm interest well settled in life, and they are convinced fully that, with their superior experi ence and knowledge of the world, they can judge which of them are best fit ted to make each other happy. When a third person undertaken to introduce a, couple where even a one sided fancy is supposed to exist, it is the part of discretion to be silent re garding such a supposition. In such case, even though "speech is silvern, silence is golden." The more matter of-course and natural the introduction can be made to seem, the more likely are the two concerned to appear at their best. However much a woman may covet cdmiration, the friend w...
