Summary

Exciting much interested comment among local cinema-goers is the movie play 'Judith of Bethulia.' This was the first big film that the master producer, D. W. Griffith ever made, and comparisons are being drawn with his later works, such as 'Intolerance' and 'Way Down East.' Among the stars in it are Blanche Sweet, Mae Marsh, Lillian Gish and Dorothy Gish, to mention the women only. 'Judith of Bethulia' is being shown at the Coronet Theatre and appearing along with it is one of the B. A. T. films called 'Safety First,' with lessons for the European as well as for the Chinese.
