ST. GEORGE'S THEATRE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly News — 10 October 1914

ST. GEORGE'S THEATRE An unusualij long and very fine [ programme is screening at' St. George's to-night. A C'ines star production, "The Cry of Inno cence." is the chief attraction; it is in three reels and sustains a thril ling interest to the end, when the wicked aims of a bad woman are revealed. Another star drama, "In ! the Grip of Circums'ance,"' is a particularly clever two reeler of the Raffles type, in which a faith ful old servant is rendered desti tute by the unscrupulous crook, but is finally restored to his right ful place. Among others "Broncho Billy" is fine, and Keystone in "Cohen saves the Flag," is a great laugh creator. In Monday's programme the long expected Nordisk drama "The Devil's Daughter" appears, and is strongly supported by a two reel Imp production "Who killed Olga Carew ?" a wonderfully gripping story of the photograph hidden in the" pupil of the eye Ivy Close reappears-in-a romantic story "The girl from the sky," and many comedies look very in viting. *"...
