Read This!

ANOTHER motion picture has been added to the industry. It is Victor Seastrom's "Name the Man!" adapted from Sir Hall Caine's novel, "the Master of Man." But it is not just another motion picture. It is something more than that.

It is a bit of Reality carved right out of life itself -- as real as the face of your mother, or your own hand. it convinces you of its Humanness, of its stature through its Simplicity.

There is no striving after effect. The story is just acted and directed Simply and Sincerely and the effect is there. Nobody knows how Seastrom does it.

But he does it. he has communicated his own Simplicity and Sincerity to Conrad nagel, Mae Busch, Patsy Ruth Miller, Hobart Bosworth, Aileen Pringle, Creighton Hale, and the other members of the cast; they have never acted better. No human heart can escape the Drama and the Emotion which Seastrom has lifted from life and transferred to the screen. It speaks the universal language of the heart, no matter how noble or ignoble that heart may be.

See it and be convinced how great a miracle the mechanism known as a motion picture camera is capable of, when there is Heart, intelligence, Humility and Sincerity in the driving force back of it -- the mind which directed it.

Conrad Nagel, Mae Busch, Patsy Ruth Miller, Hobart Bosworth, Aileen Pringle, Creighton Hale
