PAUL DETTMKR. Field Director. “WILD HONEY” FILMED The thread of ronianec that car ries the interest through the plot •<f “Wild Homy," 11 v.e Cniversal Icwrl attraction at the Granada Theatre next Sunday and Monday s based on the independence of Lady Vivienne, the English lady of rank who s the heroine of Cynthia StockleyVs novel, from which the picture was filmed. Priscilla Dean portrays the character. How many women would brave the dangers of a trip through the barren spaces of the Transvaal, alone and unacquainted with the nature of the country and it(s people Lady "Viv” does it for the sake of looking up the land which represents the only wealth she possesses, and which every one says isn't worth the paper on which the deed is printed.
