Summary

The management of Coronet Theatre is starting on a campaign to demonstrate to the cinema-going public that Metro pictures are the best showing in Hong Kong. If last night's special film 'Revelation' is a fair sample of what is to come, the claim made will take a lot of beating. In it, Nazimova, the great Russian actress, is the star, and those who last night saw her for the first time on the film were amazed at the power of her acting and the wonderful versatility she displayed. This movie is in seven acts, which comprise an astounding mixture of fun, comedy and sheer drama. For clearness of depiction, artistic setting and magnificent acting, Hong Kong has never seen a finer film.
