"BOUND IN MOROCCO" SNAPPY PHOTOPLAY The scenes of "Bound in Morocco" are laid in Algiers and it is a snappy twentieth century photoplay filled with comedy which travels at high speed throughout. The picturesque country of Algiers, which has been the scene of numerous great paint ings, is the home of Douglas Fair Banks' lâtest picture produced under Artcraft auspices. The action has tc do with Arabians, beauties of the harem, fights with bandits, etc., in which Mr. Fairbanks portrays a char acter quite different from any he has hitherto essayed. In addition to the features named, great traveling caravans, with their tawdry camels, goats and other ani mals are shown. There are battles and chases oh the Arabian desert, in which hundreds take part and in which Mr. Fairbanks does his custom ary daredevil stunts, one of these being a dive from the top of a high sand dune upon the neck of an Arabian rider, who is passing by on a swiftly speeding horse beneath. This is followed by an exciting hand to hand fight, in which, of course, Mr. Fairbanks emerges, of course. There are numerous situations in this story, in addition to the Fair banksen methods, which makes this story unusually interesting.
