Into and about the city.

following result:

Events leading up to this dramatic.
even tragic situation, and the conse
quences are pictured with startling viv
idness in "Thin Ice," the Corlnne Grif
fith picture which will be seen In the
Star theater this week. Shannon Fife
wrote the story especially for the
youthful and talented Vitagraph star,
the story of the bride who battles un
aided against crushing odds for love
and honor. It is the story of a girl
who signed a note to keep her brother
from prison, and the scoundrel who
after she had married sought to use

She feared to tell her husband
for he held that a person once a thief
is always a thief, and that even such a
person's kin is not to be trusted. And
so to shield her brother's name she
risked her own love and honor.
Tom Mills directed the picture and
gave It many rare settings, for many
scenes were staged in and about the
most palatial private residences and
hotels along the beaches adjacent to
New York City.
