PETERBOROUGH, TUESDAY, 25: \ j "The high degree of perfection to which the cinema art has been brought, is well illustrated by the admirably pro duced story of "The Man Thev Could Not Hang," which is to be screened . after almost successful season at.the.

Three attempts . were made to hang him, and each one proved unsuccessful. Lee, who vigor ously protested thai he was innocent of the murder of Miss Keyse, with whom he had been on the best of terms' whilst in her employment, was the vic tim of such an astonishing chain of circumstantial evidence that his gailt appeared to impartial judges to-be thoroughly established, and the convic tion recorded against him was generally approved.
