A Powerful EUGENIC DRAMA, in Seven Reels
In the "Escape." which comes to
the Grand tonight, the people of Ju
neau will have an opportunity of see
ing these wonderful films which have
create such a foror wherever pre
sented. No. film subject of recent
years has occasioned such an amount
of critical discussion as have these
wonder film esarchlights into the v-1
tal questions of the duty we owe to
the unborn generations which are to
follow us. '"The Escape" tells the
story of two sisters, the dauhgters of
poor parents, born in the tenement
district of New York and their exper
ience and trying vicissitudes holds
the main interest of the plot. Begin
ning with their parents the lesson is
graphically told of the need for care
ful selection on the part of those con
templating matrimony, the whole lead
ing up to a logical climax that is as
inevitable as death itself. The vital
and stronger elements of life are 11
lustratcd in a way to make the spec
tator gasp, but at the same time it
forces upon all of us the teachings of
the Great Master, that we must think
and act for the benefit of our fellow
men and women. The powerful play
by Paul Armstrong from which the
rllms of the "Escape" were made car
ried with it an appeal for better things
that if It is heeded will tend surely
: and inevitably to make the world bet
ter. D. "W. Griffith staged the "Es
! cape" and over $100,000 was spent in
their production. An all-star cast in
, terprets the roles, composed of Blanch
Sweet, Donald Crisp. Maie Marsh.
Robert Harron and some hundreds of
others. The scenes are many and
follow in logical sequence.
