  • (1930 re-release) Now for the treat of your life! the greatest thrill drama ever produced brought to throbbing life on the screen through the miracle of sound! Doubly wild-weird-wonderful with its eerie sounds; its operatic instrumental music and sounds; its grand ballets in color; its drama heightened with dialogue. The world's wonder picture made more wonderful. Don't miss it. (Print Ad- Virden Recorder, ((Virden, Ills.)) 13 March 1930)
