IS BIG SUCCESS ON THE SCREEN Bert LyUll Scores Heavily in Colorful Picture at the Colonial Theatre It must bo confessed that one's rea- sons for wanting to see Ilert on the screen are somewhat at first thought, anyway.

Certainly nothing that ho has done quite comes up to his interpretation of the part of Tito proprietor of the fashionable modiste's shop of shown yesterday at the Colonial theatre.

We always thought we had a mighty keen and practiced eye, but the cast of girls whose business on the screen It Is to wear gracefully the rather marvellous creations Lombard! designs, were of such unusual bcauly. all of them, that for tho life of us wo couldn't say which was really i tho" winner.
