"The Prussian Cur,
to the Hip for today-
will doubtless prove the same sensa- j
tion in Phoenix that has been its re- !
cord throughout America. It is A j
drama of the war. but. choses rather ;
the spy system of the Imperial German
government, as its central theme. The I
man from whom the information was !
gained that made possible the filming j
of this gigantic spectacle, was Capt. '
Horst von der 'Joltz. self confessed i
I German spy, whose service as a secret
I agent for the kaiser covered a period of
i ten years. He was the man who en- ;
j gineered the enterprise of the attempt
' at destroying the AVelland canal in ,
i Canada This was the man who faced j
! death as a spy in the Tower of Lon- I
J don, but whose life was spared on ae
i count of the efforts of the United .
Stales that he might come to this coun
i try and give the information which ,
I meant so much in the combatting of j
1 the sinister menace of the dastardly I
' spy system. '
The picture was staged at a great j
j expense, and is complete in every de
I tail. "The Prussian Cur," goes back
i through the years following from its j
; very inception the German schema of
courpiest. It shows with vivid realism
i the barbarous German outrages which i
pro-German serpent which crawls in
to their midst to poison and destroy;
it shows President Wilson addressing
congress; it pictures strikes, train
wrecks, and historic scenes at the im
perial German palace. It shows Amer
ica's fleets at sea the boys in camp
and on the way to the battle front.
l-iistotical archives were ransacked for
I details; secret records were examined
thigh officials were interviewed; for-
tunes were spent in collecting data
j and building the imposing sets de

I thrilling and inspiring scenes, 'the
i whole history of an epoch. It is bound
to appeal strongly to every red-blooded
which comes i American, and should prove one of the

"The Better Half," Alice Brady's
latest film success, will be the feature
offer'ng at the Columbia theater
Thursday. Friday and Saturday. It is
a story of twin sisters, adapted for
j the screen by Louise Shermin frooi
I Miriam Miohelson's novel, "Michael
! Thwaite's Wife."
Alice Brady is seen as both Louise
i and Trixie, twin sisters who are as
; different below the surface as it is
S possible for sisters to be. Michael
Thwaite, a cousin by adoption, goes
! away to become a physician, and upon
i ins graduation marries Trixie, although
in early life Trixie had hated him while
her sister Louise loved him.
After the wedding Louise enters a
hospital to become a nurse, while
Trixie continues her butterfly ways.
Finally Hendrick Thurston, a social
libertine and idler, lures Trixie to his
rooms for a late supper. Michael
learns of her caprice and attempts to
scold his wife. But Trixie packs her
bags and hurries to the hospital to
tell Louise that she is going away with
After talking the matter over, Louise
begs her not to go and Trixie prom
ises to return to Michael in the morn
ing. Following events find Michael
a patient in the same hospital where
Louise is working while Trixie has
gone to Europe with Thurston. An
operation is necessary in order to bring
back Michael's sight, and through the
dark days that follow Louise takes the
place of Trixie, although Michael
thinks it is Trixie who is nursing him.
At last Trixie tires of Thurston and
comes back, but when she learns that
Louise loves Michael she kills her
self. A Gaumont Graphic and a Strand
comedy will be the augmenting features
for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

the hair-raising' exploits of the beard

the young blade becomes keen for a
sharp battle with the cut-up. The old
blades have made an offer to t'ae third
concern, and the third concern has
sent a representative to the summer
