Both these actors are widely known to Australian audiences and both have appeared in Perth. The ba lance of the cast includes Miss Mabel Gibson, the musical comedy player, Miss Patricia Minchin, Ed. Warrington, John Henry, Guy Hastings and Miss Nell Fleming, who is also well known in Perth. Mr. F. W. Thring personally directed this film. The Co-Respondent's Course' will be tbe second feature. It is A SOCIETY COMEDY-DRAMA written by Montagus Grover, Australian newspaper man, and tbe leading roles are taken by Miss Donalda Warne and John D'Arcy.
