We offer "Illicit" with a combination of great interest and pride. ' The comment which "Illicit" has aroused forces us to realize it is more than an effort at entertainment. The story, which already has developed into an issue is of a clean, healthy girl who prefers to live her romance strictly according to her own personal and unusual ideas. We do not say this is true of our modern generation. Nevertheless that's the story of "Illicit." We ask you—please, try to understand the spirit in which "Illicit" has been produced. Once in a generation comes such a vehicle which surpasses the heights of entertainment to leave with you a startling impression that you will wonder over and discuss for many a day to come.
