"The Dust of Egypt" throbs with
originality. It is a story of the mod
ern and tho ancient. In exactly
one-tenth of a second you are dream
ed back three thousand years and
ushered into the royal room of Amen
set, a Pharaoh's daughter where she
sits enthroned in all the glory and
wonder of a glittering Cleopatra.
Amcnset is tired of splendor tired
of glory. Ami, the wise man of the
desert is sent for.
He gives her two potions. The first
potion will make the one who quaffs
it. Amenset's slave in a love that has
never been surpassed. The second is
a potion of a death sleep that will
last three thousand years.
The fair princess drinks the second
potion, drops to her knees and sinks
away into her age long sleep.
Three thousand years later Geoffrey
Lasrelles, an American, is presented
with an lOgyptian mummy. The po
tion of the ancient wise man of the
desert has done its work.
The beautiful daughter of the Tha
raoh awakes shakes off her grave
clothes, and awakens Geoffrey Las
celles. Stunned and mute with surprise,
Lascelles finally endeavors to care for
her. He is struck with her and her
beauty, but only the night before he
has announced his ejigagemrnt to
The princess is discovered in his

"Princess Homanoff," Miss O'Neil is
cast as the Princess Fedora Romanoff,
a wealthy and beautiful young widow
of St. Petersburg. She is betrothed
to Vladimir Boroff, a young man of
high social position in the Russian
capilol. On the eve of their wedding
Vlndimir Is murdered. The Princess
Fedora, transformed by the tragedy,
from a gentle loving woman into n
veritable tigress, vows to devote her
life to the punishment of the unknown
The suspicious of the police are
centered upon Loris Ipanoff, an ac
quaintance of Vladimir's and Fedora
follows him to New York to gather
evidence against him. , In New York
Fedora gains the friendship and con
fidence of Loris, and in turn loses
her heart to him. Her vengeful na
ture Is not to be denied, however, and
when she learns from his own lips
that Ixris is Vladimir's assailant, she
thrusts her love aside and denounces
him to the Russian Secret Police.
Agents of the police are sent to kill
Loris and Fedora agrees to lure him
to his doom. In an intensely drama
tic scene the Trineess learns that
Vladimir was not murdered, but met.
his death in a fairly fought duel with
Loris, and richly deserved his fate.
Her desire for vengeance disappears
and she wants only to save the man
she loves from the police agents, into
the hands of whom she has betrayed
him. This she accomplishes. The
efforts of the police are frustrated and
from the shadow of Impending tragedy
Fedora and Loris emerge to find a last
As a novel and play, "Bella Donna"
created one of the greatest sensations
of the present literary and dramatic
epoch. As a photoplay it will un
doubtedly be recorded as one of the
most powerful emotional dramas ever
presented on the screen. In the fa
mous role of the alluring and treach
erous Bella Donna, whose soul con
tains all the passion of the Orient and
whose impulses are as exotic as the
Nile itself, Pauline Frederick has sug
gested a creature of rare fascination
and unusual power. Beautiful and
cruel, irresistible and pitiless, she
plays with life and love until the in
evitable moment of reckoning arrives,
when, spurned and outcast, she pas
ses out. into the black night, across
the grim desert, into the nowhere.
In the adaption of the celebrated
dramatic success, "The Mummy and
the Humming-bird," the Famous riay
ers Film Co. introduces another fa
mous Frohman star, Charles Cherry,
to the motion picture public. "The
Mummy and the Humming-bird" re
counts the tragedy of a neglected wife
who seeks amusement in the company
of an unscrupulous Italian novelist,
Signor D'Orelli, known as the humming-bird,
who seeks first-hand infor
mation of the experiences and
emotions of which he writes. Unfor
tunately his next story is to concern
the wrecking of a home. The re
awakening of the unsuspecting hus
band, the revenge which a former
victim of the wily schemer wreaks
upon him, and the saving of the In
nocent woman, are fraught with thrills
and dramatic suspense in abundance.
