"Then Came The Woman," at the Regent Hall, Mansfield road, tells a story of a strong friendship between two men, which, although severely tried when both fell in love with the same woman, stood the test, and made its sacrifice in one of the most realistic forest fires ever filmed. The action is set in the Canadian lumber country, and the leading roles are enacted by Frank Mayo, Cullen Landis, and Mildred Ryan. That hate is often akin to love is shown in "The Mountain Eagle," a dramatic tale of the implacable creed of the simple-minded mountain folk — "an eye for an eye." Nita Naldi, usually seen in a "vamp" part, appears in this instance as the sweet and hardly-used heroine, and Malcolm Keen plays the part of the "Mountain Eagle," an individual who lives alone in the hills with only his dog for companion.
