-THE FLASH OF AN EMERALD."

and Gentleman Burglar.
World Film corporation present the I
five-part photo-play "The Flash of an i
Emerald." produced by Mons. 'Albert j
Kooert warwicK carries tnis pnoio- i
plav on his broad shoulders; he has I
to work very hard, for the character I
he portrays is singularly complex in
its ivillanies. As Lucius Waldeck -he is
thief and near-murderer;then he poses
as a revolutionary from Russia and is!
popular with the women. But he is a
clumsy thief. He presents the emerald
to the daughter of the woman from
whom he robbed it. His- fate was
sealed by that act, of course. His adventues
multiplied; but 'nis end was
inevitable. He committed suicide.
Tbey always do?these polished ad
venturers who lea/ve the human element
out of calculation in their villianies.
Albert Capellani is the producer of
this picture, which, has an excellent
cast and some fine settings, which include
a view of the procession to the
shrine of Saint Anne of Beaupre, in
Canada, taken especially for this ^picture.
