A few facts about the dark Angel the Uig first National special at the Postville theater wednesday and thursday May 5th and 6th. It s a Beautiful love drama of the Post War period. It features Bonald Oolman the most magnetic Lover of the movies together with Vilma Banky the Budapest Beauty in her american screen debut. And it was produced by Samuel Goldwyn and George Fitzmaurice who gave you a thief in Paradise tarnish and other Best Selling films. Those Are the High lights of the dark Angel and we maintain that they Are an ample guarantee that this picture will Malje More than Good every Dollar an exhibitor can put into it. The Story has already made Good. As a stage play it was a thrilling Success a big Money maker. It is not the usual Type of love drama. There is no villain. There is not n dishonourable act by anybody. A Soldier is stricken Down upon the Field of Battle in the world War not killed but blinded for life. A girl Back Home had promised to of become his wife but rather than submit her to his life of darkness he returns under an assumed name. The girl has received reports of his death from his Friend and rival for her heart. And she partly yields to the Friend s marriage plea. Then she suddenly comes upon the blinded yet eran. She throws herself at his feet but he maintains his resolve by sending her away. His Friend sends her Back to him. He know where her True love lies and honorable refuses to step in its Way. It is a decidedly fresh and Happy viewpoint on life that this picture presents. And that is the viewpoint you will Send your patrons Home with. Could you wish for a better thought than the title gives them the dark Angel is the one that brings happiness to a Man in the darkest hour of his life. And could you wish. For a More truly dramatic situation Colman has achieved a remarkable feat of acting As the blinded Soldier. Deprived of the expressive Power of his fascinating eyes he is still the magnetic Lover of All time. And when american audiences see Vilma Banky for the first time they will awaken suddenly to the presence of a new and shining Star in the film Constellation. All Hollywood has agreed even her rivals for screen Fame that her historic Genius is unquestionable and they very generously have predicted great things for her in this country.
