The clever milizatio'-. of the little ; ones enables .Mr. iv Mi:lc to put in i some beautiful human touches that could hardly lie duplicated otherwise. ! This picture, while it is written around the saving of Belgian children by an j American engineer, is not a war pic ture. It ha.s no battle scenes, but if ! is clean, strong and you can boost it, j and if you take our advice extend the run on it. It will thrill everyone who sees it anil is sure to entertain." It is one of the few specially big productions which the Strand will show during this winter.
