Countless film features have been shown here with Norma Talmadge in the starring role. This is perfectly true of 'The Wonderful Thing,' a First National picture directed by Herbert Brenon. Harrison Ford is also in the film and there is also the novelty of a real American society leader in the cast, in the person of Julia Hoyt. 'The Wonderful Thing' will be on view at the Coronet Theatre till tomorrow, Wednesday. Described by unbiased critics as the Ellen Terry of the screen, Mae Marsh is the star in the Goldwyn feature 'The Face in the Dark,' which opens at the Queen's tonight and will be shown till Thursday. Hongkong remembers 'Intolerance' and 'The Birth of a Nation,' and in doing so theatre patrons will recall the part played in these two red-letter plays by Mae Marsh. Miss Marsh appears with all her tenderness, and with something approaching the art of Conan Doyle. She is supported by Alec B. Francis and Niles Welch.
