Many huge sets were erected for the photodrama, 'Rupert of Hentzau,' which is scheduled to open at the Queen's Theatre today. On this set, the King of Ruritania (played by Bert Lytell) was wedded to the Princess Flavia (interpreted by Elaine Hammerstein) and the ceremony was conducted with all the proverbial regal pomp and splendour. This is only one of the many features that make 'Rupert of Hentzau' an outstanding picture. The story came from the pen of Sir Anthony Hope. The members of the cast include Elaine Hammerstein, Bert Lytell, Lew Cody, Claire Windsor, Hobart Bosworth, Bryant Washburn, Marjorie Daw, Mitchell Lewis, Adolphe Menjou, Elmo Lincoln, Irving Cummings, Josephine Crowell, Nigel De Brulleir and Gertrude Astor.
