This produc tion, a seven part pic turization of the fam ous novel of the same name by Rex Beach, will be shown at the Grand theatre on Sunday and Monday. Alice Joyce is the star. "The Venge ance of Durand" has some of the most gorgeous settings ever seen in a picture. Its happen ings occur mid the social whirlin great receptions, balls and dinners 'within a splendid chateau. The char acters are drawn from among a class of beings who dwell at the very top of cultured, finished aristocracy. Chivalry, romance and modern knightliness find play throughout i against a contrast of equally dynamic evil. Big minds are seen at work in the fashioning of their own and the destiny of others as the story winds its way. The climax alone, always a crucial point and a focal fact of a drama, novel or film, is here a fact of tre mendous importance. The climax of this picture is like no climax ever con trived.
