Johnnie Walker, the new film star, got away to a flying start in Hongkong in his first big picture 'Captain Fly-by-Night.' The story is laid in the same territory as 'The Mark of Zorro,' and was written by the same author. If anything, the present film contains more exciting moments than Douglas Fairbanks' hit – and there are two thrilling incidents of unusual 'punch.' Buster Keaton in the 'Paleface' holds up the comedy end of the programme, and a topical film rounds out an excellent bill.
