"Possessed" is an excellent pio- ture, rising high above the aver age motion picture. It builds ta a climax that leaves one silent and not a little shaken emotionally. to begin with tha settings are so splendid and so artistically photographed that the show is of interest event though the acting were to fall below the level of good taste. But In addition to the splendid photographic back ground and sophisticated life there Is the theme of an absorb ing story sty splendidly acted as to make one forget that, before one is only a screen upon which a make-believe story la belnr enacted. Fine shadings of facial exnres- sions, modulations of voices, nat uralness or poses and positions, acting that is gennlne and sin cere at all times and on the part of all concerned It Is an excel lent production, and you will ba the loser if yon do not see it.
