CJonrad Nagel, Loretta Young, Fred Kohler, William Janney, Emmett King, Harry Cording, Brandon Hurst and other favorites head the all-star cast. Francis Edward Faragoh adapted the drama to the screen. Some exceptionally beautiful photography is featured in picturing both of its principal locales; picturesque parts of a big Canadian city, and the great woods around a remote village in northern Cabada. Said to be one of the greatest basic dramas in fiction, "The Right of Way" deals with the attempted regeneration of a very hard, strange man who loses his inhumanity with his memory, and gets it back again when memories of the past return. At the same time it presents one of the finest love stories Ihe screen has .recorded, and one totally differing in inception and ending. ··' --o-- .- .; ; . ,-.. · 7 Acres anjd acres of rope corrals, water troughs'and feed mangers, where thousands of 'animals spent contented weeks, represented the all-important transportation department which functioned during the making of "Cimarrbn," now at the Cecil theater.
