Development of the Gravity Railroad As an Outdoor Amusement Device [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Development of the Gravity Railroad As an Outdoor Amusement Device THE extraordinary popularity and lasting powers of the rides at outdoor amusement places everywhere , transcending the popularity of any other form of entertainment which it seems possible to devise for such resorts of pleasure-seekers , has for years been the wonder of those who make a business of supplying means for the public s play . Why is it that the biggest , most costly , and most cleverly conceived spectacle does only a good , or even a fair , business when it is first offered and soon loses out in the race for receipts with an unpretentious merry-go-round or scenic railway or coaster ? Why is it that a theatrical performance of unquestioned merit presented amidst pleasant sur Old Switch-back Railroad , the Pioneer roundings by players of renowned repute often goes begging for attendance while these same unpretentious rides corrall money , hand over fist ? Not many people have taken time to even attempt an a...

Come Easy (?) , Go Easy ; The Actor ' s Money [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Come Easy (?) , Go Easy ; The Actor s Money Boyd Gilmore , of the team of Gilmore & Latour , tells the following two true stories which , although widely different in nature , illustrate the actors contention that the individual connected with the show business is oftenthe prey of petty grafters who have arrived at the erroneous conclusion that the actor and his associates get their money easy and ought to be separated from it whenever the occasion presents itself . A vaudeville performer , playing at a small theater in a tank town where hotels and boarding houses were scarce and good fare was constantly at a premium , wrote a friend who was to follow him the next week at the same theater advising him to patronize a certain boarding house . Performer No . 1 told Performer No . 2 that the board was good and that it was well worth the $ 6 per week which the kindly (?) landlady was charging . Performer No . 2 took his friends advice , and he and his wife lived at the boardi...

Wm . H . Crane ' s Act of Growing Old [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Wm . H . Crane s Act of Growing Old In a recent -issue - . of the Pittsburgh Gazette-Time r s , a beautiful tribute was paid to William H . Crane . No actor on the American stage has grown old with more grace than this shining light in the history of- American theatricals , and a pointed lesson is given to all professionals as to how to grow old , without showing it , by the artistic and successful career of this splendid actor . Work , and hard work at that , has kept him young and a clean , unspotted life has assisted in this . It is not often that an actor gets a tribute like the following from a newspaper , and especially when every one knows it was not evolved from the brain of a . fertile press agent , but was an expression of good-will from a writer who admires the art of the man . This is what is said of William H . Crane : The American stage can boast no finer figure of artistic longevity and personal lovableness than William H . Crane . For many years , reaching back into ...

" Uplift" of the Stage [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Uplift of the Stage At a recent convention of the New York City Federation of Women s Clubs , William C . De Mille , the playwright , was asked to deliver an address on What Women Can- Do to Uplift the Stage . In the course of a witty and pointed address , Mr . De Mille among other things said : I believe that in some rural communities the idea still survives that the stage folk are less moral than others , but I trust you dont want me to discuss uplift from that point of view . You needn t bother about uplifting vaudeville , either , because lately it has been pretty busy uplifting itself . As for the musical comedy , the evening habitat of the tired business man , did you ladies ever try to uplift the tired business man ? There remains only the legitimate drama , and it seems to me that trying to uplift the drama by tugging at the producers end is like a man trying to raise himself by tugging at his boot straps . The drama of every country is exactly what the public has been educa...

Looping the Loop in 1846 [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Looping the Loop in 1846 THE issue of the Scientific American of May 9 , 1903 , presents the somewhat surprising evidence that as early as 1846 , or almost forty years before its introduction in this country , the gravity railroad was used as an amusement device in France . And it is even more surprising to know that , combined with the mere business of riding down an incline under the propulsive power of gravity and velocity , was the more hazardous amusement for the general public of looping the loop . The Scientific American s article sets forth that when the American scenic railway was introduced in Paris , the device was shown at two parks at about the same time . One of the Parisian managers advertised quite extensively that he was offering the original novelty as it had been first invented and used at Coney Island , New York . This statement attracted the attention of an old newspaper man in Paris , with the result that he unearthed in a file of the French weekly entitled LIl...

CHICAGOSREMARKABLE LIST OF OUTLYING YAUDEYILLE HOUSES Here Is Only a Partial Roster of 10-20 s —Compiled Especially for the Christmas Player . By Harry F . Rose . THIS is but a partial list of the outlying family theaters of Chicago . No attempt has been made to include the innumerable picture houses where an occasional vaudeville act is played . This compilation is made for the convenience of the artist who plays Chicago or for guidance in- addressing mail to the theaters included in the tabulation . The names of the houses are arranged alphabetically . Difficulties would be encountered were an attempt made to name the houses in their relative importance , although the player would often like to know the class of theater for which he is offered bookings . There was a time when this list of theaters contained but few houses where a first-class act would care to play . But the quality of the bills has been so wonderfully improved in the last two years that it is nothing uncommon for ...

Actors * Fortunes Wont to Pass Quickly [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

Actors * Fortunes Wont to Pass Quickly While theatrical and operatic stars make money rapidly , many of them lose their savings as quickly . Money accumulated rapidly is apt to slip through pepole s fingers , and it does not always vanish through squandering or foolish expenditures . A striking case of this is proven by the fact that Mme . Marcella Sembrich , who two years ago retired to private life , with a fortune large enough to keep her for the rest of her life , has now returned to the footlight glare , not because she hankered for applause , but because she was practically broke . For twenty-five years Mme . Sembrich had been a member of the Metropolitan opera company , and was the recipient of a very large salary . She was paid at least $ 1 , 000 a night for every night she sang , and that meant frequently , for she loved her work . It is estimated that when she # retired she had accumulated over a million dollars , enough to keep her in affluence for the rest of her life . ...

The Simplicity of Operating AModern Vaudeville Circuit [Newspaper Article] — Player — 22 December 1911

The Simplicity of Operating AModern Vaudeville Circuit By Charles E . Hodkins . It has been claimed that there are annoying things encountered in the operation of a vaudeville circuit . I deny it . On the other hand there never was a business so free from worries and care and which required so little personal attention . The head of a vaudeville circuit must be present at the yearly meetings and should sign his name occasionally to checks for small amounts , but he is seldom needed on other occasions if he has an efficient office force , such as can be secured from any employment agency . The vaudeville business , as a whole , is marked by general enjoyment . Those who are engaged in it are generally carefree pleasure seekers who are endeavoring to get the most out of life . The artist provides the entertainment proper . He masters some form of entertainment , which is an easy matter . If he wants to be a monolog artist , he writes to James Madison , who has an abundance of material...
