It is a living, breathing characteri zation of the Prussian pirate, Wil liam of Hohenzollern, that Rupert Julian gives to the role of the Kaiser In the production, "Tho Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin," which is the at traction at the Reynolds Theater. When you settle down in a soft, yielding chair at home and begin your daily perusal of tho barbarous practices of the Huns, do you wonder what sort of person this emperor might "be? Do you picturo him in your mind? Do you try to imagine how he conducts himself in his own palace? There's an ea3y way to sat- isfy your mind on theso points go to see the film at the Reynolds. A seat in the Reynolds Theater to night is a ticket to Berlin, to the heart of a war-mad nation, and it includes stopover privileges in the devastated section of Belgium, where tho horror and tragedy of the sack of this little country is unfolded before your eyes. If you don't hate the Kaiser now. and you ought to if you are a real American go to Bee "The Beast of Berlin" and you will hate him before you've seen one hundred feet of film; if you do hate him, go to the Rey nolds and your hatred will be stimu lated and made more intense. . The management of the theater -does not claim that this film Is the most costly that has ever been pro duced, but it does claim that the pic ture is something that brings home the real truth concerning Germany and Its tyrannical ruler.
