A New Screen Classic
Harold Kdle, Managing Director of tho Mtriiml Theater, New Vork.i
In a lotter to Klrhard How land President of Metro Picture, Has:'
"I cannot refrain from writing you regarding tho wonderful suc
cess attained by Mme. Nazlmova in "Toys of Fate" which opened
here at the Strand Theater last Sunday.
I thought "Revelation" a great picture, but unquestionably In my
mind this will meet with even greater success, owing to its tre
mendous appeal to the masses.
Nazlmova Is a marvelous star, and exhibitors everywhere should
make every effort to book this production."
