12 SCREEN OPINIONS WEEKLY SERVICE Our Opinion MORAL O’THE PICTURE— None. Good Picture for Cheap Locations “The Lion's Mouse” will be hailed in cheap localities as excellent entertainment. It will scarcely pass muster in the better houses, however, for the reason that the construction is not professional — the action is jerky, and character development is neglected. It reminds the writer of the pictures that were made several years ago, when the players were hurried from one situation to another, with the matter of suspense and thrills uppermost in the mind of the director regardless of consistency or the detail necessary to make the action of the picture lifelike. The cast is quite satisfactory, and all its members are capable of better things. The crook element affords of some fairly good suspense. STORY OF THE PLAY Beverly White’s effort to protect her brother from death at the hands of a gang of blackmailers causes her to strain every nerve to get possession of a package of letters in the possession of Justin O’Riley. She meets and marries Roger Sands, to whom she is unable to divulge the secret of her life. In the events that follow Clo Riley, a girl she has befriended, aids her not only to get the package, but also a rope of pearls that are stolen from her. The close of the story shows a reconciliation between Roger Sands and his wife after a period of jealous estrangement. PROGRAM COPY — “The Lion’s Mouse” — With an All-Star Cast, featuring Wyndham Standing and Marguerite Marsh Beverly White’s struggle to protect her brother from blackmailers almost ended in marital disagreement. See “The Lion’s Mouse," a thrilling tale of one woman’s loyalty to another. Pretty Marguerite Marsh and Wyndham Standing head the cast.
