NOT FOR SOPHISTS
Because "Sorrell and Son,"
flowing at the Elsinore. is some'
tfiiag really "fine." it Is "preciee
4y..ihe' kind of film which- would
be sneered at by those quaint
asses-' who- write for that class of
eastern publications which deem
themselves quite smart."
Let this department announce
.that ft ?eela it , well worth while
to quote that which was written
by a precocious theatergoer who
prints a publication for the exhib
itors benefit and who, politely,
declines any advertising which
may be sent Jhim. His Is a publi
cation for the man who owns a
theater and the owner pays well
for the critic's opinions. If he
thinks a film is hopeless, he says
so and he is seldom wrong.
The story, perhaps, is nothing
extraordinary. It tells, uncom
monly well, of a father's love for
his son. It is that on which the
theme is baeed.
Harry Warner, the unbiased re-
1 viewer insists, is the outstanding
feature. The atmosphere of the
picture (to quote some more) is
one of its greatest charms.
-George B. Guthrie, owner of the
Elsinore, has without qualifies
tion called- "Sorrell and Son"
the finest picture he has witness
ed this season. It will remain at
the Elsinore, that all'may se it.
