For the first time, last night, at the Coronet Theatre, the public of Hong Kong had an opportunity of seeing D. W. Griffith's 'Intolerance.' It attracted more audience than the super-production 'The Daughter of the Gods.' The theme which Mr. Griffith selected for his masterpiece is the spirit of intolerance which one section of mankind bears towards the other. In his masterpiece, Mr. Griffith has created a new departure from the stereotyped film by interweaving the parallel passages in the different stories into one another, thus affording the audience an opportunity of comparisons, and giving to the film additional interest which could not have been obtained were the stories reeled off in succession one after the other. This magnificent film will be shown at the Coronet for the next two nights. Film synopsis included.
