- Lillian Gish in Griffith Masterpiece Opens Tonight
Lillian Gish As The Pretty Housewife In “The Lily And The Rose,” A New Triangle-Fine Arts Play That Has Attracted Unusual Attention.
The programs at the Jewel theater for the balance of this week are especially strong, featuring such stars as Lillian Gish, Wilfred Lucas (whose work in the Triangle play “Acquitted” is conceded to be the most marvelous piece of character acting before the public), Harold Lockwood and May Allison, and last but not least, the ever, popular, vivacious Lillian Walker, who will appear Sunday and Monday in the clever comedy-drama, “Green Stockings.”
Tonight, tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night will witness the presentation of the D. W. Griffith drama of the heart, “The Lily and the Rose,” with Lillian Gish in a wonderful portrayal of the loyal wife. The cast includes Wilfred Lucas and Rosziska Dolly, the exquisite Triangle character actress. The usual two-reel Triangle-Keystone comedy, “The Great Vacuum Robbery,” goes on at 7 o’clock, the opening hour of all Triangle shows.
