Tho picture, produced by Robertson-Cole as a super-special, was directed by Louis J. Gasnier, and is ono of tho most artistic photo-plays over presented to tho public. Mr. Skinner, who, on tno legiti- mato stage in this country, created the principal role in "Kismet," that of Hajj, the beggar, and played it ROOERTON-COtt, rw SKinner '" KISMET Ot(o-ro(nutkxtrf Tj GASNIER. V7 before hundreds of thousands of people, is pleased, to believe that his screen versiori.islhis greatest 'inter pretation of the part. Also, Mr. Skinner has declared that hio screen portrayal is his last appcaiance in the character. While always maintaining a high standard in all pictures released, Robertson-Colo has, in its presenta tion 'of "Kismet" outstripped all previous efforts. Placed in old Tur key in Asia, in the city of Bagdad, the story gives - many opportunities for richness of settings. Realizing that to duplicate- and outdo the stage version of "Kismet" it was necessary to go tho limit and em brace each and every ono of these opportunities, hundreds of thous ands of dollars were spent in ob taining exactitude of detail and per fection of setting. For mnny years Otis Skinner was adverse to appearing on the silver sheet. His work, he claimed, was for the legitimate stago alone, and while many stars of tho audible dra ma switched their nffections to the realm of Hie film, Mr! Skinner re mained obdurate.) Finally, when ho was convinced that a screen version of "Kismet" would perpetuate both tho play, and himself, ho consented to revive Ilnjj and give tho story to tho world at largo through tho med ium of motion pictures.
