MONDAY, AUGUST 9th
To have the man you love propose to you, accept
him and to be the happiest girl on earth, then, just a few
minutes later, to find him kissing a woman you hate, is
the situation which confronts Dorothy Gish in one of
the dramatic moments of "Boots," her newest Para
mount picture, which will be shown at the Liberty the
atre next Monday.
. Usually it is the other way. The man finds his
sweetheart apparently false to him, and in his blind
anger refuses to trust her. This time "Boots," in her
own tearful resentment, refuses to trust the man who
she believes, has been false to her. "So," says Dorothy
Gish, "it makes little difference which side of the fence
the clover is on, the other side looks different anyway."

A GREAT FILM AT s -$r'
THE LIBERTY w
Plain human beings fighting the battles of life in their own way. Picturing their virtues and frailties so graphic
ally that you will laugh and cry with them hate and love with them as your emotions react to Griffith's masterly
interpretation of humanity's greatest question.
and as you see the characters struggling on sometimes fighting the current of life, sometimes mounting the crest
of a wave of success, sometimes helplessly drifting or hurled against a catastrophe that wrecks a life you'll marvel
with Griffith at the greatest question in life.
A play for the thinker a wonderful entertainment for all.

We wctuler if you, rentier, ever said this to some little girl or
had it said to you? Nellie and Jimmie arc just like all first
lovers even as you and I. We will see each other in them.
We'll laugh at them we'll sorrow with them we'll thrill
with them because they're human they're us! Griffith, the
master, has made them so in "The Greatest Question."
