In His Grip

Trade News and Notes in Scottish Section report on "In His Grip"

This subject, apart from the fact that it is a story of one of Scotland's dour, straight, characters, has additonal interest up here, inasmuch as some of it was produced at Loch Lomond and some in Glasgow. As a picture, "In his Grip" is one of the very best British productions we have seen, and as a character study that given by Cecil Morton York, the old Scottish contractor, is a real masterpiece of acting. The story is based on "duty first", the old Scotsman woud rather "do his duty" as a member of the Hospital Committee than go to see his dying friend. But contracts go wrong, and the dour Scotsman gives way to temptation to save his business, and betrays the trust reposed in hlm. All comes right in the end, however, and "In His Grip" will delight any audience because of its general excellence and because it is out of the usual run.'
