This is an entirely new film of this subject and is an improvement on any that have heretofore been shown. The graphic way in which we see the prodigal leaving home, dividing of the estate, the squandering of his fortune by riotous living, and finally being reduced to living on the husks and tending the swine, and the return, together with the feasting, is very beautiful. The story itself is well carried throughout and the film will make a hit in any locality and is bound to be a feature.
