COLISEUM—For the last time to

COLISEUM TO SHOW
“GREAT VICTORY" FOR
LAST TIME TONIGHT.
A distinguished audience packed
the Coliseum theatre yesterday to see
the widely-heralded Screen Classics.
Inc., super-feature, “The Great Vic
tory. Wilson or the Kaiser? The Fall
of the Hohenzollerns.” 'which was the
big attraction, and to say that they
received it with enthusiasm and ap
preciation is to put it mildly. It will
he seen for the last time tonight.
When the first few scenes of the
picture showed President Wilson, the
idol of the nation, the house did
him honor and it was with the sap.e
amount of energy—though in an en
tire'.y different manner of showing —
that the flashes of the Kaiser were
As the play progressed, depicting
the many horrible. events for which
the Prussian monarch is responsible,
the feeling grew more intense, and
when such incidents as the sinking
of the LIsitania, the torpedoing ol'
hospital ships loaded with wounded
and dying and the terrible execution
“of . the martyred Red Cross nurse.
Edith Cavell, were shown, it was ns
if the brutalities were happening be
fore the eyes of those who gazed
with bated breath on the vividness
of the scenes.
Very clover was the way In which
the lives of the two most talked of
men—Wilson and the Kaiser—were
depicted, from their earliest infancy
up to the present day. The birth of
the royal infant—in state and pomp
—his young life surTounded by all
the restrictions of a servile court,
his companions subservient and
cringing from his earliest recollec
tions, and who, as he grew older,
learned to be cruel and hard to those
who sought his favor, unruly and
disobedient to those in authority
over hint and with no love or res|>ect
for anyone bu himself—gave a sharp
contrast between the ideals instilled
into the youth of the twa nations.
Quickly turning from this unnatural
and unwholesome state the scenes of
the play takes the observer to the
modest and comfortable home of the
Wilsons to whom a son had just been
born--a child looked for and wel
comed Into I he world with a groat
love—the idol of his companions and
parents and with playmates of his
own choosing -a. typical American
home where the boy grows up to
heapthy, happy manhood for the
greater glory of his country.
Words are Inadequate to describe
the enthusiasm with which the pic-,
ture was received and Its merit is
enhanced by the number of stars—
thirty in number—who play the lead
ing roles In the production. This
super-feature is the. work of Director
Charles Miller under the personal
supervision of Maxwell Karger, direc
tor general of the Metro studios. Mr.
Karger also wrote the story from
which the play was adapted.
