"I held that life was I a ferment, a yeasty something which i devoured life that it may live and that Eliving was merely successful piggish-I' mess. Why, if there is anything in supply and demand, life is the cheap-eat thing in the world. There is only I aq much water, so much earth, so I mauch air; but the life that is demand- i tag to be born is limitless. Nature is i a spendthrift. Look at the fish, and 1

    It was the Wolf in him that I saw, and a mad wolf at that. He sprang for me with a half roar, gripping my arm. I had steeled myself to brazen it out, though I was tumbling inward; but the enormous strength of the man was too much for my fortitude. Hehad grpped me by the biceps wth his

    ingel hand, and when that grip tight- ened, I wilted and shrieked aloud. My

    feet went from under me. I simply could not stanl upright and endure

    BRITISH RANK NAZIMOVA AS

    WORLD'S BEST "MARVELOUS VERSATILITY WILL

    REMAIN INDELIBLE MEMORY" WRITES ONE

    In her first appearances recently be- fore the British public as a screen star, Nazimova achieved a triumph of the first magnitude according to a consensus of the opinion of the lead- ing British dramatic and photoplay critics. The phenomenal 'Russian actress, now appearing in "The Heart of a Child," carried England by storm; even more completely, to judge by the enthusiastic eulogies of discrimnating English reviewers, than she has tri- umphed in this country,

    A survey of prominent British jour- nals, including the London Times, the Pall Mall Gazette, the London Even-

    r ing News the "Sketch," the Daily Tele- graph, the Daily Herald and the Daily Mail, reaching here from the other side, reveals that the English critics and public as well went wild over the incomparable art of Nazimova.

    f A reviewer in the Pall Mall Ga- "zette for instance, said that "Nazi-5 mova is the first actress who is likely

    t to win a place analogous to that of t Sarah Bernhardt or Ellen Terry,"

    s while the Evening News proclaimedI her to be "the greatest film artist of

    the world." Loud in Praise

    Richard A. Rowland, president of Metro Pictures Corporation and Screen Classics, Inc., is in possession of a voluminous assortment of Eng- lish journals ,all loud and unreserved in their praise of Nazimova's art. Col- lected by Jury's Imperial Pictures, Ltd., the English picture firm, headed by Sir William Jury, the "movie king" of England, which has acquired for $2,500,000 the rights to the Nazimova Productions for the next two years, these journals reached Mr. Rowland shortly after his return from his ten week's European trip.

    Mr. Rowland sailed for England last May taking with him five Nazimova productions. These pictures, released by Metro and representing the high water mark of ppresent-day production were "Revelation," "Eye for Eye,"

    j"Toys of Fate," "Out of the Fog" and "The Red Lantern." Shown at a ser- ies of special previews in the London Pavilion, their effect was instanta- neous. The critics were united in their recognition of Nazimova's unpreced- ented art.

    Panther-Like Form What is most interesting, probably;

    about the opinions of the British crit-. 4 ics is their extraordinary variety. No 4 two of the London reviewers were captured by precisely the same things. To some it was Nazimova's beauty- the haunting witchery of her face and eyes, together with her lithe panther- like form; while to others it was the 4 weirdly fascinating quality of her ges- 4 tures, each so invocative of her mood, 4 whether merry or gay, whether trag- ! ical or sad. Always it was something different for each, out of "the in- i finite variety" of this phenomenal Rus- sian artiste of the screen, and to each it left nothing to be desired.

    Some solution of this may be found; perhaps in a statement by the' critic of the London Times: "Nazimova is quite unlike any other woman who has acted for the screen. She makes naught of nationalities." Right here appears to be the crux of the matter. "She makes naught of nationalities," or, in other words, it is the univer- sality of her genius and of her art that makes her belong to no place no

    time, but rather to all time, to all ' ages. j

    Greatest in World The Evening News, in designating:

    Nazimova as "the greatest film artist of the world," mentioned the appro-1 priate character of her picture stories. and the hand-in-glove fits of the parts I she plays. As the News put it:

    "The productions as works of art: match her in every way. They give full play to her genius; they offer the: fullest scope for the utmost expres- sion of every enliotion. Her marvel- ous versatility will remain an indelible memory. Whether she walks, or run, crawls, or rolls on the floor, she in- vests her movements with poetic grace.
