Fannie 'Hurst Story With
Irene Dunn and John
One of the outstanding screen
dramas of recent years comes to
the Elsinore today.
The picture la "Back Street."
adapted from the widely read no
Tel by Fannie Hurst, with Irene
Dunne and John Boles in the fea
tured ' roles, and directed by the
master of human, domestic dra
ma, John M. Stahl.
"Back Street" tells the story of
a woman who considered no sac
riflcik too mat to make in the
name, of love, and a man who
gave freely of his love but at the
same time retained his social po
sition as a husband ana lamer.
The story covers a span of 20

cially affecting picture of the
trials of two people wnoee love

ing its sincerity and depth.
)It is Universale most ambitious
nrodnritnn of the season. "Back
Street" presents"' to Miss Dunne
and Boles the most sympathetic
roles of tneir careers.
'THE LUST MILE'
IS AT HOLLYWOOD
'The Last Mile." as a stage
lay, was laid entirely within the
one setting of a great prison -death
house. It's the story of the
doomed men faced with the in
evitable, yet hoping; their last
fight made, and lout, yet watch-,
ing, waiting, dreaming of a chance
to fight again.
The world wide film at the Hol
lywood today, "The Last Mile," in
motion picture form, is a faithful
reproduction of this sensationally
gripping play: It's action laid al
most in it3 entirety within the
same setting as the play, its char
acters practically the same.
With the added scope of the
motion picture, the film version,
naturally augments the produc
tion with more realistic sets,
greater and more effective light
ing, fof the action which lays bare
the quivering souls of seven con
Sam BIschoff directed the film
at the California Tiffany Studios,
