The startling title >ot this Screen Classic, Inc., picture is enough to comraeinl it at once to patriotic people, and a big audience was present to see the production. The spectators were enthusiastic in their applause. The picture Is warranted to fan the spark of national loyalty to white heat. "To Hell with the Kaiser" is a clever commingling of fact and fancy. The war lords of Germany, thfi Potsdam gang, presided over by Wilhelni of Hohenzollern, are shown planning the cbntiuest of the world. To each is allotted a nation as a reward-the U. S; reserved for the last, intended Cor the Crown Prince. The now historic incidents are shown in which Wil-helm the monster tore up the treaty of Belgium, declaring it to be only "a scrap of paper," and acknowledging to the world that he disregarded all honor and decency. The sacking of Belgium, the burning of convents and the violation of nuns and young girls are indicated in. a way that makes the blood boil with righteous indignation against the Huns. The Adventures of an American family form the plot around which the romance centers. -hatred of the liruta! Hun; hatred of the murd�rou� kaiser, the mad monarch. It is replete with tremendous scenes in the early days of the Belgian invasion, and from all standpoints of scenic value is one of the screen's greatest masterpieces.
