PICTURE DKAMA.

"MYSTERY OF A HANSOM CAB."    

Fergus Hume's "Mystery of a Hansom  

Cab is almost as familiar to Australian readers as "Robberv Under Arms " or "The Term of His Natural Life." Its thrilling in   cidents provide splendid material for a moving picture drama, and in obtaining the desired film the cinematograph experts have secured an excellent presentation of the features of the novel. The "Mystery of a Hansom Cab is of particular interest in

Melbourne.

With the exception of one country scene the location is Milbouren's main thorough  

fares, clubs, hotels and lodginghouses, the fine avenue of St Kilda road, and the     seaside suburb of St Kilia. The familiar   streets and buildings were welcomed with     applause by a crowded audience in the Glacierium on Saturday evening, when the     drama was presented as the chief item. The   audience took over an hour to throw on the screen, but the keen interest of the audience was held thronghout. A note   worthy point was the realistic manner in which the drive of the cab from Scotts   Church, Collins street to the St Kilda       Esplinade and the chloroforming of ¡he drunken Whyte in the cab by Moreland     were shown. Other well-acted scenes were   t¡he opening episode at Gunsler's Cafe. and the meeting of Fretteby and Rosanna   Moore, the slum abode of Rosanna's mother and the appearance of Moreland at   Frettleby's home to blackmail him. The         film was explained by Mr Herbert Leigh in a descriptive lecture.
