Summary

Mr. Anthony Hope may rightly be called the creator of the country of Ruritania, about which so many romances and plays are written nowadays. 'The Prisoner of Zenda' is so well-known to the general public that it is a matter of general interest to see how the film version compares with the book and the stage romance. Judging by the appreciation shown at the Coronet last night, Metro Pictures, which made the film, seem to have been very successful in their efforts. The name of Rex Ingram has become familiar because of his success with 'The Four Horsemen.'
