EVENING TELE GRAM. j "Mr. Griffith, with unerring instinct, has played up the appeal to the ele mental emotions. His picture is full of exquisitely beautiful scenes, needing no color to reveal their perfection." EVENING POST. "It is not often that an audience stands to cheer a motion picture. But it happened at the Forty-fourth Street Theatre. The audience rose and cheered. Some of the settings are wondrously beautiful, the scenes m the snowstorms being most realistic." COMMERCIAL. "The audience sat in rapture to watch its unfolding. Of the hubbub which followed the ice-jam scene at the end, any audience would have cheered it and -all audiences will." TIMES. "It had the spectators standing and cheering. As many generations of the future will be charmed, and thrilled by the shadow show as have wept, ap plauded and chuckled over the stage play.

"The audience received a thrill the like of which has not been felt since the Clansman rode over the hills in 'The Birth of a Nation'!
