16 May 1919 – Theater Notes

A Russian star, a French director, an American scenario writer and Italian camera man and a Chinese story are the chief factors in the colossal Nazimova production, “The Red Lantern,” starring Nazimova herself, which was produced in this city at a cost of over a quarter of a million dollars and which will be shown at the California. Nazimova is a daughter of Russia; her director, M, Albert Capellani, is French —for a number of years the most noted of all cinema directors in Paris, with Pathe; June Mathis, gifted American woman writer, prepared the scenario; camera man, Eugene Gaudio, is Italian, and the story, from the novel by Edith Wherry, is laid in an Oriental setting.
