The Isis Theatre ~ Kansas City, Missouri

PROGRAM
THURSDAY, AUGUST 29.

Elsie Ferguson
in
"
The Lie"

     Aside from the great popularity of Miss Ferguson, whose beauty and genius are universally recognized, the attractiveness of "The Lie," as a heart-appealing story of pristine quality, doubtless will be sufficient to make this presentation an epoch at this theatre.  The picture is based upon the enormously successful play of the same name by Henry Arthur Jones, which achieved an artistic triumph in New York some years ago.
     The theme of the photoplay, one involving a supreme sacrifice by a young woman to save the reputation of her erring sister, and to  preserve the honor of her family name, embraces all those elements that make motion pictures of the better class, to which, "The Lie" belongs, so popular.  The subject is one that appeals to the human emotions with irresistible force, and the lessons it teaches cannot fail to have a beneficial influence.
