Mam Called Back," Tiffany Pro
ductions' latest drama starring
Conrad Nagel, one of the really
entertaining pictures on the
screen and now showing at the
"Silent Thunder," the original
novel on which the film Is based,
was written by Andrew Soutar. It
is a story of the regeneration of a
man through his love for a wom

the ostracism which .surrounds
him. Conrad Nagel's role Is that
of an English surgeon whose ca
reer Is shattered by profligate liv

he settles on one of the Malayan
islands where the whites shnn him
and the natives mock him. A love
ly visitor to the spot takes an in

later as his friend. She must
leave for London, and when they
again meet, his shock at learning
that she Is married Is softened by
the humiliation m which her
ealthy husband's philandering
has placed; her. Together they
fight a common battle, with hap
piness as the reward.
Conrad Nagel, who has been ab
sent from the screen these many
months, stages a triumphant
comeback as the young surgeon.
He gives the part Its full quota of
manly sincerity, and makes the
characterization ntterly real and
sympathetic. Doris Kenyon's
charm and histrionic ability are
both given ample scope In the
leading feminine role. Other skill

and screen, who appear In the fea
