London, January 6 – From the Egypt of the Pharaohs to a Bloomsbury lodging house is the gamut run by new British films for December. The Egyptian picture is an elaborate spectacle filmed from Sir. H. Rider Haggard's famous novel, 'Moon of Israel.' Like the American 'Ten Commandments,' it portrays the fate which befell the oppressors of the Children of Israel in old Egypt. 'This British producer,' writes the cinema correspondent of the Evening Standard, 'has outdone the lauded efforts of Cecil B. DeMille, of America.' Film plot included. The second picture is a comedy drama called, 'Not for Sale.' 'Not for Sale' is one of the most British of all British films. It contains not only the old-fashioned earl but also the dissipated high society rake.
