When it was announced that both John and
Lionel Barrymore were to play in the same picture,
people thought that the famous controversy as to
which of the two is the better actor would be settled
once and for all, but after having seen "Arsene
Lupin" we can only say that the result of the illus-
trious Barrymore combination is fully the great pic-
ture that might be expected. There are many who,
will argue that John's fine portrayal of the super-
crook, Arsene Lupin, entitles him to first honors, and
there are just as many more who will contend that
Lionel, as the detective, acted rings around his little
brother. It is a moot question-let it remain so. The
most surprising thing about the acting is that such
a thoroughly tertiary role as that assigned to Karen
Morley could be so well handled in the face of such
a barrage of Barrymore competition. The little blond
girl makes a very creditable showing.
The plot, aside from a few weaknesses in minor
detail, is one of the best detective stories we have
seen or read in a long time, and excellent direction
brings it out to its best advantage. The theft of th-e
Mona Lisa from under the very noses of the watchful
police is the cleverest bit of grand larceny it has ever
been our privilege to witness.

injuries; and the necessary control of the reproduc-

The attention of hygiene to such problems may
properly be criticized as reparative, compensatory
and negative, but the idealist sees in these approach- !
es the ultimate hope of constructive, positive service
in the development of the human race.
